Skin is the body's largest and fastest-growing organ, and to that end, it's safe to say that what people put onto their bodies, as well as into their bodies, affects their skin. Healthy skin is essential for many reasons, and in order to achieve it, certain factors need to be considered. Good skin health is dependent on external factors, such as sun exposure, temperature changes, environmental issues and, of course, product usage. All of these items can lead to skin irritation, dryness, low elasticity, poor texture and more. Skin health is also influenced by internal factors, such as diet, lifestyle, stress, hormones and genetics.

As an esthetician and consultant licensed both in New York state and internationally, I hear a huge amount of complaints from my clients about gym-related breakouts. Sweat spiked with hair care product residues along with bacteria, oil and cross-contamination from gym equipment all play a part. But no need to skip your workouts. Just keep these tips in mind for healthy, glowing skin after the workout's over.

Anti-aging ingredients are important to many as people look to ways to prevent signs of aging. According to Zion Market Research, the global anti-aging market is poised to surge from $140.3 billion in 2015 to $216.52 billion by 2021, which shows great opportunity for anti-aging products. Natural ingredients have been shown to promote skin health, a top concern for anti-aging, even protecting against oxidative stress and ultra-violet rays, known culprits to signs of aging.
Swiss ice wine grapes hold the secret to happiness — skin happiness, that is.
A new product available in the United Kingdom called Optimum PhytoFreeze promises to reduce wrinkles with its secret ingredient: Swiss ice wine grapes. A derivative from the grapes called "Vin-upLift" supposedly reduces wrinkles just as effectively as other chemical face-lift products.

When you’re knee-deep in the logistical details of managing a project team, it can be easy to lose sight of the big picture: your organization’s vision. We use established and proven strategies at Cheetah Learning to help us achieve our vision in each course we offer. For example, the vision for our new program is pretty simple: With the right training and systems, most people can efficiently and cost-effectively grow their own food year-round.

It's not easy to be counterintuitive and go against the old paradigms. Yet history teaches us that most breakthrough successes have come from running counter to the prevailing paradigms. Where would we be today if Bill Gates of Microsoft had believed his own pronouncement in 1981 that "640K of memory ought to be enough for anybody" and stopped pushing the limits of what computers could do? So take a walk on the wild side and try these five counterintuitive principles for yourself.
There's a lot of talk about storytelling these days and rightly so. Consumers want an emotional connection to the businesses they choose to buy from and they crave deeper connection and real engagement. What they tend to get is the traditional, factual based descriptions on websites, in advertising and in social media that tends to say very little apart from what products or services a particular business sells.
The focus for brands is to convince, or influence, as many purchase decisions to go in their favor. In the online environment, there is an extraordinary opportunity to reach out to the largest audience possible and influence what they buy whether it is a product or service. However, there are thousands of brands out there doing the exact same thing, so the challenge is to become more influential than them. But the rules of the game have changed.

Vaccination is a mainstay of preventive healthcare, reducing the incidence of serious childhood infections. Ecological studies have demonstrated an inverse association between markers of high ambient ultraviolet radiation exposure (e.g., sunny season, low latitude of residence) and reduction in the vaccination-associated immune response. Higher sun exposure on the day prior to and spanning the day of vaccination has been associated with a reduced antigen-specific immune response independent of skin pigmentation.
There are so many digital tools available today to promote student learning in the classroom. The task is in figuring out what you need for your classroom. What could benefit your students the most?
Here are 12 of the tools that made a difference in our classroom this year, in no specific order, and certainly not an all-inclusive list. These are simply the newer tools that expanded our learning environment and promoted more student driven learning and student voice.
Did you know ... It is the position of the NCEA that:
- Microcurrent devices intended to be used to help reduce the visible signs of aging, beautify and improve the appearance of the skin, utilizing low levels of electrical current in conjunction with skin care products, should be performed by estheticians.
- Microcurrent procedures performed by estheticians, are not intended to cause a visible contraction of the muscle via the electrical current.
- In addition to manufacturer supplied, device specific education, estheticians who wish to perform microcurrent procedures, should take the necessary education to include theoretical and practical application, as part of their core curriculum or as continuing education modules.
