Tips for taking care of your skin
     Everyone wants a gorgeous, glowing complexion without the damage that can come from too much sun. Now it is easier than ever with a tip from the celebrities, St. Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Sheet Mask. It has a hyaluronic acid-infused tanning serum that gives skin instant hydration and a natural, customizable glow.

After taking off the mask, just use the excess serum to blend around your hairline, eyes and neck.

 Tips for looking good this summer
     Drink lots and lots of water. With the summer sun, it's important to exfoliate in the morning and to hydrate the skin and body. An amazing new complexion product was inspired by Marc Jacob's love of coconut water and youthful, glowing skin. Marc Jacobs Beauty is introducing a luminous gel-cream for summer that instantly lights up the complexion. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter comes in a universally flattering golden-peach hue, which can be applied to the skin directly for a highlight or mixed with foundation or primer for an all-over luminosity.

Tip to survive the summer heat
     One tip to survive summer heat is to turn an ordinary shower into an extraordinary uplifting ritual. Instead of a regular soap, use Le Petit Marseillais. It is the number one Body Wash Brand in France and its Extra Gentle Scented Body Washes come in five sun-kissed scents including Orange Blossom. Le Petit Marseillais features authentic notes that capture the South of France in a bottle, and the best part is that it is now available at local drugstores so everyone can turn their daily shower into an uplifting experience.

Ideas for looking great this summer
     The Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, Alabama, is amazing. It is where items people lose in unclaimed baggage go. Tucked away in Scottsboro, the home of "lost luggage," the Unclaimed Baggage Center. This place offers hidden fashion treasures, high-end electronics, jewelry and more salvaged from suitcases and cargo shipments that were left behind or lost. Unclaimed Baggage Center buys this baggage from the airlines only after the airlines have not been able to match it to its owner. Then these goods hit the store floor, primed and ready for savvy bargain hunters looking to find a steal. Everything is sold 20% to 80% off. Although lost and unclaimed baggage is only a fraction of a percent of the millions of bags handled annually by the airlines, it is enough items to keep this store stocked and ready to shop for its nearly million visitors a year. Unclaimed Baggage Center has grown to become one of the South's top tourist attractions, For information, visit

Hair Talk with JoJo the Hair Care Expert
Beauty and Barber
Q: JoJo how do I stop my hair from breaking?
A: Hair breakage preventative methods go back to good conditioning. Knowing what’s causing your breakage (heat, chemicals, braids, weaves, etc.) then choosing the right blend of proteins or moisterizing conditioners is key to resolving this problem. Your stylist should know what your hair needs. If you don’t have a stylist, a good place to start is with Dudley’s Cream Protein and/or Design Essential’s Rosemary Conditioner. Terry’s Place has both product lines available with trained professionals to help you choose the right products for your needs.
Q: JoJo what can I do about thinning at the scalp?
A: This problem usually occurs from either strand strain or age/heredity. One form of Alopecia (hair loss) is called traction Alopecia, and it occurs from pulling hair up too tight into a ponytail or braiding too tight. This can start from childhood and can continue if those styles are worn regularly. Don’t wear your braids more than 6-8 weeks and don’t get them so tight. Switch your style or pattern, so that your hair isn’t constantly being pulled in the same areas. I tell my clients to limit these styles to special occasions.  
Q: JoJo I’ve been wearing a relaxer for over 20 years, and I go to the same stylist. My hair is doing great, but I’m constantly under pressure to go natural to avoid chemical damage. What do you think?
A: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If you’ve been going to the same stylist for your services, they apparently know your hair and have made the proper adjustments over time, like changing relaxer strength or changing retouch times from 6 weeks to maybe 8 to 10 or 12 weeks. The biggest problem is manufacturers have made it very easy for people to chemically relax and color their own hair, but without expertise this usually leads to over processing. Applying chemical relaxers or color too frequently can lead to over processing and over lapping, which damages the hair. Stick with your stylist.
