Five Daily Habits That Cause Wrinkles

Apr 28, 2016 -- 4:03pm

Here are five things we do every day that cause wrinkles . . .



1.  Squinting.  It causes wrinkles around your eyes and the bridge of your nose.  So if you wear glasses, make sure your prescription is up to date.  And if you're driving with the sun in your eyes, wear sunglasses.



2.  Sleeping on your stomach or on your side.  You end up with your face squished into your pillow for six-to-eight hours.  And it can also restrict blood flow to the side of your face you sleep on, which can also cause wrinkles.



3.  Rubbing your eyes.  The skin around them is the most delicate skin on your body, and you end up stretching it out.  Plus, you transfer dirt and oil from your hands to your face, which also doesn't help.



4.  Eating too much sugar.  It messes with your hormones and destroys some of the collagen in your skin, so it loses some of its stretchiness.



5.  Being in the sun while you're driving.  The windows in your car only stop one type of UV rays, called UVB rays.  But UVA rays still get through and damage your skin.



It can also happen if you sit near a window at work.  And the tiny bit of sun you get walking to and from your car also adds up.  Which is why you're supposed to wear sunblock every day, but most people don't. 




A New Mattress Can Send You an Alert When Someone Has XXX on It

Apr 19, 2016 -- 4:15pm

I'm not sure technology gets creepier than this.  A company in Spain just created a mattress called the Smarttress that has a feature called the, quote, "lover detection system."



What does that mean?  The mattress has built-in sensors that can tell if someone's having SEX, and if it detects some fornicating, it sends an alert to your phone.



The company says it's their solution to the, quote, "global infidelity crisis" . . . in other words, you'll know if your significant other is doin' it with someone else on your bed.  There's no word on when this could ship or how much it'll cost.

If You Want to Eat Less, Chew Louder

Apr 13, 2016 -- 3:25pm

Everyone hates loud chewers.  But they're having the last laugh.  Because apparently they're hated and SKINNY.



A new study out of Brigham Young University found that people who chew loudly end up eating 30% fewer calories than people who chew like normal human beings with manners.



The researchers say it's because when you hear yourself chewing, it's a, quote, "consumption monitoring cue," which helps your brain monitor the right amount of food you need to be satisfied.

Five Dating Apps That Are Better Than Tinder

Apr 08, 2016 -- 4:20pm

If you're bored with Tinder, here are five apps that take a new approach to online dating . . .



1.  Bumble.  It's similar to Tinder, but WOMEN must initiate the conversation with matches, so they avoid unwanted messages from guys.  And some women are even using it to find new female friends.



2.  MeetMeOutside.  It connects you with people who like outdoor activities like yoga, hiking, and biking . . . and gives you seven new matches a day based on shared interests and locations.



3.  Bark'N Borrow.  This app allows dog lovers to connect to other dog owners.  Then you schedule "doggy-dates," where you bring your pet when you meet.



4.  MissTravel.  It's for travelers who want to find a traveling companion.  So instead of meeting for the usual cup of coffee, you can make plans to TRAVEL with any connections you make. 



5.  WhoNow.  This app helps you organize and keep track of all your matches made on Tinder, Bumble, and OkCupid.  So when you're juggling messages to several different people, you can keep them straight.
