Vegan secrets and why my skin is always glowing
The Huffington Post
When Anjali Sareen first made the decision to adopt a vegan diet, many of the more "seasoned" vegans in her life told her about all the wonderful benefits she could expect. After she went vegan, she discovered a whole world of benefits no one had ever told her about. The first was that seemingly overnight, her skin turned from an acne-prone mess into beautiful, clear, healthy-looking skin.
Reiki, Rolfing and reflexology: Proposed exemption in Colorado
A just-introduced bill in Colorado would expressly exempt several bodywork modalities from most state regulation. Included in the exemptions are reflexology, Rolfing, mind-body centering, Orthobionomy and "practices with the primary purpose of affecting energy systems of the human body," including Reiki and healing touch.
Why are celebrities injecting their faces with blood?
A "blood facial" or "vampire facial" is a cosmetic procedure during which a doctor draws a couple vials of blood from your arm, centrifuges the blood to separate out the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells, and then adds the platelet-rich plasma back into your face. For extra absorption, the doctor pokes your face all over with a bunch of micro-needles before applying the plasma. There's no evidence at all that this gory procedure works, and only the babiest starting evidence that injecting platelets into the skin works at all against the appearance of aging. But there probably is little harm to plasma injections because they deal with the patient's own body fluids.

Separation of skin care from the cosmetology scope of practice
It is NCEA's position that skin care should be independent from the cosmetology scope of practice and license.
Due to the advances in technique, product and equipment, the NCEA recognizes the importance of protecting consumers and estheticians. Skin Care Curriculum requirements should be adopted from the NCEA's 600 and 1200 Esthetician Job Task Analysis.
Furthermore, it is NCEA's position to raise the level of the esthetician's scope of practice by increasing the licensing requirements to meet NCEA's 1200 Hours Esthetician Job Task Analysis. The current cosmetology license that allows licensees to practice skin care includes a maximum of 250 hours of actual skin care training and in some states, as low as 40 hours.
Currently there are over 25 states that are still allowing cosmetologists to perform all skin care services regardless of training/curriculum that lead to licensure.
