I found all these articles within one click of each other on the web sight of a well known woman’s magazine. It begs the question, why are woman’s magazines so contradictory? It is clear that our thirst for easy to read, non taxing articles means that we are clearly not thinking about or processing very much what we read. Not that following any advice in a women’s magazine is an especially wise idea, if I were to do as these articles say, I would have more of an eating problem than many of the professional nutritionist they quote would ever think possible. And it is not just about food, lets have a look beauty products, another commonly reported on.

In the same articles it gives the advice mimic the salty ocean mist with this DIY spray and directly underneath how to prevent damage to hair from salt water…

Have we all lost all respect for ourselves as women that we accept to read all this rubbish? I read these magazines as a way to unwind after a day at work but I find myself clicking less and less on the articles, finally selecting the ones reporting the news because sometimes it is interesting to read a very bias view of the world.
