So glad you could come back to us with some more great tips. What
would you suggest for me?
Well thanks Mirtha. Um….Mirtha…aside from a really good
lawyer, I think any one or more of these would do wonders for you.
But how about we start off with a nice relaxing soak in the tub?
Just run yourself some
nice warm bath water and add a cup of Epsom salts and a couple drops of
blue food coloring. The Epsom salts contain magnesium chloride which is
said to draw out excess water weight. The blue color will refresh
mouseover to see her before...
Oooo….that sounds so good Rita. I think a nice box of Swiss
Chocolates would top it all off!
Remember sugar is not good for you my dear. But…try this facial
scrub to de-stress yourself. Mix a handful of sugar and enough
vanilla extract to form a paste. Apply to your damp face and
scrub, and then rinse well. It’s the smell of these that will
soothe your frazzled nerves.
So far Rita, you’re two for two. I am feeling better
already. But I need something for my puffy eyes.
Have I got a tip for you then! Grab a cucumber – and lay a slice
on each eye. The puffiness will diminish and the scent of the
cucumber increases your mind’s sharpness and thinking capabilities.

So for so good there Rita! What’s next?
Let’s concentrate on hair for a bit shall we? Um….Mirtha…when
was the last time you changed your hairstyle?
Well….it’s been a few years. But I like this one….it’s
kinda like a trademark for me.
Ok…er…I see….well let’s just perk up what you already have then,
Lead on – Oh great and fruity one. I am in awe of your
O my…..that is a compliment coming from you Mirtha. But speaking
of fruit, grab your favorite and let’s get going.
Yes I am looking a bit drab lately so what would you suggest?
Next time you wash your hair (soon, I hope), take a spray bottle and
fill with a cup of distilled water and 1 tablespoon lemon juice and
spritz on your damp hair. This works for you since you are a
blonde(?) but for redheads use orange juice. (Yes orange juice!).
And if you are a brunette, use some crushed and dried rosemary.
Ooooo….purty! Hey Rita – want to know how I de-stress my hair?
you feel like nut..
Well….ok. (Do I really want to know this?)
Ahem…it’s not that bad! I just rub a tablespoonful of coconut
milk into my hair after shampooing, and rinse out. The scent of
the coconut is supposed to uplift your mood and boy do I need that right
So I guess you could say that sometimes you feel like a nut…
sometimes I don’t! Well my dear Rita, you’ve proven yourself
once more. You are truly a magician! I feel less stressed
already. Thank you ever so much!
You are very welcome – I sure had my work cut out for me though!
