SphinxProblems with picking your nose

Who knew that the nose played such an important part in a person's psyche? Recently, New Beauty Magazine's online edition, Daily Beauty, reported that a study conducted on people who had rhinoplasty came to one big bummer of a conclusion:  they are psychologically abnormal.  Yes, you read correctly - abnormal, as in NOT normal.  New Beauty has run the story before (verbatim in 2008), and it is still true.  The report they cited, and subsequent reports over the years, claim that as a group, nose job "patients exhibited a range of personality disorders, with 23% rating as obsessive and 20% qualifying as hypochondriacs. " Other reports conclude that "it also is the most requested aesthetic operation by patients with body dysmorphic disorder," the condition of excessive preoccupation about a perceived defect in one's body (paging Heidi Montag.)  On top of that, only about half of them are happy with the results!  And the ones who are happy?  According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, "Those who were satisfied with their new noses were found to fall into the categories of depressed or "good faking" (stating untruths that make one's situation seem better)."

It gets worse.

As we're paying all kinds of attention to protecting our skin from the sun, it's easy to overlook that which is going to be hit first by the UV rays: our hair.  And that's not a good thing.  Too much sun dehydrates hair just like skin, fading color and leaving it brittle.  Michelle gives us the rundown on new sunscreens for hair.


Last week we reported on the non-profit group, Matter-of-Trust, which has been organizing salons to donate hair off the salon floor and ship it out to distribution centers where it could be stuffed into nylons and used as alternative booms to soak up the oil mucking up the shores of the Gulf Coast.  But the Huffington Post reports that BP isn't interested in the help and all their good efforts seem a waste of time.
