Butterfly facials will cocoon your face for silky, beautiful skin
The Huffington Post
We've heard of bird poop facials, blood facials and even fire facials, but this latest beauty treatment may top all of these.
Introducing the butterfly facial, a skin care treatment that promises to "cocoon your face for silky, beautiful skin."
The facial advancement
Facials are changing from the old-fashioned European to more clinical facial treatments. At one time, a client would seek out an esthetician for skin maintenance; whereas today, a client seeks out an esthetician to treat skin, which requires more instant results. The world of skin therapy has evolved into treatments targeting certain skin conditions in less time. Clients formerly received multiple treatments from an esthetician to treat their skin while now only one or two treatments can conquer their requests.
A gym for your skin
Even if you're sweating on the treadmill and grunting at the weight machine, you're probably still forgetting 57 important muscles that define part of who you are and how others perceive you and even help manage your mental well-being. They're in your face.
"As a cosmetologist and instructor, I am honored to be with the NCEA. As a professional, I recommend becoming certified. After 30 years in the industry, I can still get excited about continuing education, my job and helping others."

10 ways to grow your business using social media

Topical interventions are currently the cornerstone of treatment of partial-thickness burns to the face.
Feedback for thinking: Working for the answer
We run the risk of giving the wrong kind of feedback for students, and it's not because we are bad people. We love our students. We want them to be successful, and sometimes these desires can actually get in the way of a student truly learning.
You're asking the wrong question
It's true that much has been written about how to compose effective online discussion prompts. But what may often be missing is consideration for the purpose of the discussion, which should be prompted by the question. This consideration for purpose is often overlooked because of assumptions we make. We, as course designers, faculty facilitators, or both, assume that we know the purpose of the discussion for which we are composing the questions. Yet, we have many different purposes of discussions.
