From cayenne pepper and lemon juice to low-carb to no-carb, we've all heard about — if not tried — the many "fad" diets out there. But experts agree that deprivation tactics tend to backfire, and jumping on the latest diet bandwagon can actually do more harm than good.

Watch the video above to hear what women like you, as well as a LUNA nutrition strategist, have to say about Debunking the Diet — and learn how to feed your strength wisely.

You’ve worked hard, you’ve waited long, and your well-deserved Spring break is so close you can almost feel the sand between your toes. It’s easy to think that nothing could possibly get in the way of your vacation bliss, but the bummer of it is just when you’re feeling most relaxed, you could be at your most vulnerable — particularly when it comes to your digital devices. That’s why it’s essential to be carefree without being completely careless.
From planning your perfect escape to enjoying the getaway of your dreams, keep the following tips from Norton in mind.
If it seems too good to be true . . . it probably is
It gets tempting while planning for Spring break to find “too-good-to-be-true” deals. Be wary of scams offering free airline tickets, phishing emails around frequent flyer mileage or offers for discounted excursions. Also, look for “trust seals” like the Norton Secured seal verifying the site’s security before making your purchases.
Plan ahead — give your devices a life vest
A missing phone can be a far bigger headache than a line at the airport. Install security software like Norton 360 Multi-Device before you hit the road so if your device is lost or stolen, you can remotely locate and temporarily lock it to prevent anyone from accessing it.
Unplug for a while — you’re on vacation after all
The best way to keep your information safe on Spring break is to just not use it — gasp!
But, if you absolutely can’t keep yourself from “checking in” or uploading your latest adventures to Instagram, keep your information safe by using personal protection like Norton Hotspot Privacy — which keeps your signal safe and anonymous — or wait until you’re on a private network before conducting any potentially sensitive activities online.
Make your vacation memorable for all the right reasons and don’t let digital security risks stand in your way.

There is simply nothing redeeming about a blustering March day — the bracing wind slaps you in the face, cracking your lips instantly, while cold tears trickle down your cheeks, making your skin even more dry and chapped. Fun times. In order to prevent my already-sensitive and reactive skin from becoming a bigger drama queen, I follow these simple rules: 1) Put all my foaming face cleansers (foaming can be drying) in a drawer and replace them with cream-based cleansers. 2) Rule number one applies to the body, too! Look for a rich, creamy bodywash like Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash, which will leave your skin soothed and hydrated and get rid of the dreaded Winter itchies. 3) For a midday refresher to battle the blaring dry indoor heat, keep a mineral water spray or alcohol-free toner at your desk and spray throughout the day as needed. It actually refreshes your makeup and hydrates!
Conditions in the winter are not kind to skin! Creating good habits and dishing out some extra moisture will keep skin healthy and soft, even during the winter!
5 ways to keep your skin happy this winter:
1. Keep it warm. Hot showers feel good when there is a chill in the air but actually cause moisture loss! Keep your showers warm and short.
2. Be gentle. Dry, flaky skin may have you wanting to aggressively exfoliate. Don’t! Instead, use a gentle touch with a mild exfoliating cleanser once a week to help remove dry skin cells.
3. Cleanse wisely. Skip the soap, it’s too drying! Use a cleanser that helps nourish your skin. Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.
4. Be consistent. Apply a rich moisturizer to damp skin after each shower. This helps create a barrier and traps in your natural moisture
5. Replenish humidity. Run a humidifier while you sleep. The moist air will keep your skin from feeling parched.
Be diligent with healthy skin care habits, and use moisture rich products, so your skin will be ready for the first signs of spring when you can wear your sandals again!
