Join the NCEA for its Orlando prep class June 1
NCEA



A prep class is an interactive study group that allows the candidate to further their knowledge development. It's an excellent way to "brush up" on skills and develop a nurturing mentor relationship with your instructor. It also provides more interaction than if you've only used the self-study method.

The discounted prep class fee of $125 has even been extended up until June 1. To register, please call 800-335-7469.

Natural skin care's promises are only skin-deep
Chicago Tribune
Despite your good intentions, buying skin care products labeled "organic" or "natural" doesn't always translate to a healthier body or planet. Many such products still contain the chemicals you're trying to avoid. And even if a product is bursting with nature's bounty, those earthy ingredients may not produce the desired results. How can you know which earth-friendly products are best for your skin, inside and out?

Facelift addiction
HealthNewsDigest.com
Every professional gambler knows when it's time to walk away from the blackjack table. They can just sense when their luck is about to run out. Gambling addicts, on the other hand, never know when to quit until they have lost everything. A newer kind of addiction — one that is no less destructive or tragic — is cosmetic surgery addiction.

Can you survive a spa inspection?
Skin Inc.
It's a typical day at the spa with clients coming and going. The spa manager is in the back office processing payroll, the front desk coordinator is multitasking, making appointments and checking clients in and out. It's business as usual until an unexpected arrival ... an inspector from the state board of cosmetology, who is there to conduct an inspection. If this were your spa, how would the rest of the story unfold? Would your team panic or would it be prepared?

BUSINESS BRIEFS


Making space for change
By Michael J. Berens
Disconnects between a leader's vision and organizational culture are all too common in organizations. However well-respected — or well-feared — a leader may be, change cannot and will not occur simply because a leader says it will. Making space for change requires modifying organizational structures and culture to create both the possibility and the opportunity for change. It is not enough just to communicate change.

How do you get your message across to consumers?
GCI Magazine
For beauty brands, the most common marketing challenge is communicating what the product does, whom it is for and why it works. Yet, what makes beauty products so effective is the technology behind them — but in marketing, the important technology stories are underplayed and often quite complex for consumers to easily grasp. Truly smart, current brands can make their packaging, ads, websites and social media work well for them when they know how to "talk tech" effectively. And effective marketing connects fans to brands and turns interests into sales.

Reiki: How the no-touch therapy has made its mark
The Telegraph
The basic idea is that we are surrounded by a vast pool of cosmic energy, which, although invisible, can be summoned and directed by a trained healer, and funneled into the patient's body through entry points called chakras. The "massage" consists of placing the hands lightly on the chakras, or simply holding them over the body to guide the energy in.
