Natural-looking Color Instead of Runs and Snags
According to a recent segment on the Rachael Ray show, the rules for wearing nude pantyhose have changed.
Since nude pantyhose rarely matches your skin tone and is visible most of the time (especially in open-toe shoes), it’s time to move on to other options.
If your legs tan easily, go ahead and ditch the pantyhose. If you need a little help to make your legs look silky smooth, The Big Skinny cream from Philosophy will help your legs looked toned and tanned this summer.

Say Goodbye to the Oprah Winfrey Show
Although ratings have been taking a slow dive for the last few seasons, the Oprah Winfrey Show has been a mainstay of daytime television for 23 years. So, who will viewers look to for their daily talk fix when Harpo Studios shuts the show down?
Current daytime talkers Ellen DeGeneres and Rachael Ray already have established audiences and likely have peaked with their viewership. Although the Ellen DeGeneres Show has maintained a popular base, it looks like DeGeneres may be taking baby steps beyond the talk show couch with judging appearances on reality shows So You Think You can Dance and American Idol. The Rachael Ray Show has modest popularity, but it’s unlikely the show’s format has the depth to carry on for the length of time the Oprah Winfrey Show has been around.
The Doctor is in
Is it time for a new format for daytime talk TV? Last year’s introduction of a health-focused talk show with a panel of medical practitioners has proved to be successful for The Doctors.

Refreshing eye cream brightens and depuffs
Ancient Chinese emperors added ginseng to their soaps, lotions, and food for its rejuvenating powers. Now, you can find the ancient herb in Origins GinZing eye cream.
If you’ve had a long night or look tired all the time, Origins GinZing eye cream is clinically proven to reduce dark circles.
With a formula of Panax ginseng to combat signs of fatigue and caffeine from coffee beans to soothe skin around the eyes, GinZing eye cream (selected as one of the 10 Must-Haves for 2010 by the Rachael Ray show) brightens the eye area and helps to reduce bags and puffiness.
Used alone or with concealer, a dab of the powerful cream leaves behind a subtle light-reflecting shimmer that helps brighten the eye area and makes you look like you’ve had a good night’s sleep (even if you’ve been up all night).
Guilt-free Fast Food
If you’re having trouble getting into those skinny jeans, you don’t have to give up junk food completely. According to Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien, “It’s not about going on a diet or being on or off a diet – it’s about finding foods that can fit into your lifestyle forever and still feel satisfied.”
After struggling for years with her weight, Lisa decided to abandon flour, bread, pasta, and starches for a year to change her way of eating. In the process, she developed replacement recipes for fast food favorites like onion rings and chicken fingers. Today, Lisa watches calories by following Weight Watchers’ point system and keeping carbs to a minimum, as she searches for the latest trends in food and dieting to incorporate into her philosophy.
On a recent Rachael Ray show appearance, Lisa demonstrated her food makeover talents by reforming a classic fast food chicken burger. While a take-out chicken burger usually includes a deep-fried batter, Lisa’s HG Crispy Chicken Sandwich uses Fiber One cereal as a coating which results in one-third of the calories and almost no fat (yummo!).
