How to of the Day
How to Get Glitter out of Your Hair
Glitter hair and glitter roots are super popular looks right now, but it can be hard to get all that glitter out once you’re ready to go to sleep! You can use an oil mask to loosen up the glitter and then wash it out with shampoo, or you could try blotting the glitter away with a paper towel saturated with hairspray. When you first apply the glitter, use a small amount of oil on your hairline before putting the glitter on—this will make it a bit easier to remove at the end of the night.
How to Use Aloe Vera Gel on Your Face
The antiviral and anti-bacterial properties of aloe vera gel offer many benefits for your skin – especially the delicate skin on your face and neck. While aloe vera is an ingredient in many beauty products, you can also use pure aloe vera gel directly on your face. Applied properly, the gel helps moisturize your skin to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne breakouts.
How to Make Pita Bread
Pita bread is a Middle Eastern cuisine staple, but it goes great with lots of other foods as well. Making pita bread requires mixing and kneading the dough, and then cooking each piece of pita bread individually. However, the time and effort are well worth it for the taste of freshly baked pita bread!
How to Pick Up Litter
Litter presents a threat to wildlife and public health. If you want to make a difference in your community, take it upon yourself to pick up trash and waste around your city. Choose a location that you feel is most affected by litter. Then, gather the necessary materials, such as trash bags, a pick-up stick, and a safety vest. To make your pick-up day successful, sort the litter you find for recycling. Every little bit counts when you do your part to keep your area clean!
How to Steam Pears
All steamed foods are cooked over simmering water, and pears or no different. First, wash, peel, chop, and core your pears. Then, just boil some water, place your pears on top, and wait for your pears to soften. If you don’t have a steamer basket, you can opt to steam your pears in the microwave. Steamed pears can be made into a delicious dessert or pureed for baby food. However you decide to prepare your steamed pears, just know that you’re in for a delicious treat.

Low-Cholesterol Recipes: Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari)

4.76 / 5 Stars | 21 Reviews

by Phoena

"Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends."

Raw Food Diet: Avocado Mango Salsa

4.8 / 5 Stars | 145 Reviews

by Six Pack To Go

"Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!"
