Happy Easter from the staff at Skin Inc. magazine! Enjoy these unique tips for egg decorating from Minoo's Aesthetic Institute.
What you need:
5 red onion skins
Wild flower leaves of your choice
2 spoons vinegar
Light weight net
Take your wild flower leaves and place around your egg making shapes and patterns. Use net to hold your shapes in place by tying net around flowers and egg tightly. Use floss to tie up net at top. Place a small towel at bottom of your large pot and place your eggs gently in pot, on top of towel so they do not crack. Place your red onion skins in pot with eggs. Pour cold water in pot filling up to where eggs are covered. Turn on heat and boil your eggs for 1 hour. The onion skins will bleed during this process and give your eggs color. Let eggs cool over night. Remove netting and peel of flower leaves. Now your eggs have a beautiful design and color to them!

Albuquerque, N.M. moved from 13th place last year to be named American's fittest city this year in the March issue of Men's Fitness magazine.
The other top 10 in the nonscientific survey of 50 cities are: Seattle; Colorado Springs; Minneapolis; Tucson, Ariz.; Denver; San Francisco; Baltimore; Portland, Ore.; and Honolulu, the Associated Press reported.
The magazine said this year's top 10 fattest cities are: Las Vegas, Nev.; San Antonio, Texas; Miami; Mesa. Ariz.; Los Angeles; Houston; Dallas; El Paso, Texas; Detroit; and San Jose, Calif.
The survey results are based on various lifestyle factors in each city, including the availability of bikes paths or gyms, commute times, fast food restaurants per capita, amount of television watching, along with federal statistics on obesity-related illnesses and injuries.
Magazine editor Neal Boulton told the AP that the list is published each year "to motivate folks to look at the simple things in their lives they can do to be healthy."

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a new treatment for moderate-to-severe frown lines, medically called nasolabial folds.
BioForm Medical issued a statement describing its Radiesse as a longer-lasting alternative to existing wrinkle fillers. The company said its calcium-based microsphere technology not only fills in facial folds and depressions, but also stimulates the body to produce collagen, the fibrous protein that gives the face its structure and fullness.
The drug was also newly approved to improve the appearance of people with AIDS-causing HIV who have significant facial fat loss (lipoatrophy), the San Mateo, Calif.-based company said.
Radiesse was first FDA approved in 2002 for use in facial reconstructive surgery.
