Doctor Jo Makeup Tutorial - April Fools!

Literally millions of you have asked me for makeup tips and tricks. So since it's April 1 (and isn't that as good a time as any?), I decided to FINALLY let you all in on my most treasured makeup secrets. Enjoy!

Standing Trunk Extension

Looking for an easy way to help stretch out your sore or painful back while increasing range of motion? Try a standing trunk extension.

To perform a standing trunk extension:

  1. Stand straight up with your feet about shoulder width apart. Place your hands on the lower portion of your back.

  2. Lean backwards, arching your back until you feel a stretch.

Cervical Sidebend

Looking for a simple way to help relieve neck and shoulder pain? Try a cervical sidebend.

To perform a cervical sidebend:

  1. Start with your shoulders relaxed and your head in a neutral position. Bend your head towards your shoulder like you are trying to touch your ear to your shoulder.

  2. Repeat to the other side.

Hamstring Stretch with a Strap, Supine

Looking for a great way to help stretch your hamstrings? Try a hamstring stretch with a strap.

To perform a hamstring stretch with a strap:

  1. Lie on your back, and place a belt or dog leash around the ball of your foot. Bend the knee of the leg you are not stretching to help relax your back.

  2. Keeping your knee straight, pull your leg up with the strap until you feel a stretch behind your knee/leg.
