Facials are far beyond an hour of liberal spoiling. They have tremendous advantages to the well-being and health of your skin — both in the short and long haul. When you consider the majority of the customary visits you make (dental specialist, hair salon, rec center), you'll understand you should concentrate some of that time on your skin as well. Here are 10 reasons why you ought to get facials routinely.
Wellness-focused mind-body interventions — such as meditation, yoga and tai chi — appear to be able to "reverse" harmful molecular reactions in DNA.
The claim is made in a study published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, which reviewed more than a decade of studies analyzing how the behavior of genes is affected by wellness intervention — such as mindfulness and yoga.

Facials? Love 'em. Peels? Yes, please. But throw in the word wedding, and the whole idea of creating a pre-wedding day regimen becomes confusing and downright intimidating. Suddenly, the pressure of doing everything according to the "correct" timeline so that our skin won't go rogue on us is more than we can bear. Our loyal friend Google is not shy in telling us its opinion on what treatments we should be scheduling when. But when we spoke to Dr. Gerald Imber, internationally renowned plastic surgeon of Youth Corridor clinic, he advised us to beware of such timelines — they do not work for everyone the same way.
You've spent relentless hours in the gym all winter long, and it's about time to unveil your hard work. Before you do, make sure you're truly beach-ready with a few last-minute treatments — after all, your skin has been buried beneath sweaters, your nails have taken a beating in the cold, and perhaps you've slacked off a bit on your diet recently. Not to worry, these top spas in NYC have you covered from head to toe with treatments to slim, exfoliate, and pamper.
Adir Abergel's braid cuffs, created in collaboration with Lelet NY, are a simple and chic way to add some flair to your plaits. This is one of the seven looks Abergel created exclusively for Allure in celebration of the launch of the line.

One of the best ways to recharge your business this summer is to reintroduce yourself. Reach out by email or in a letter to anyone and everyone you need to know — and who needs to know you — and bring them up to date about what’s new and noteworthy about your business and yourself. Traditionally, business owners used a reintroduction letter when they reinvented themselves, shifted their focus or changed their business model. But the letter also serves to revive sagging sales and boost the bottom line.
For nearly two decades Cary Collier and Doug Chambers, the innovators behind international spa management and consultancy firm Blu Spas Inc., have been involved with scores of spa projects for the likes of Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Bulgari, Rosewood, and other luxury brands.
Prior to starting Blu Spas, Texas native Collier had worked in wellness and spa consulting since 1984.
Nowadays, any resort worth its mineral salt has a spa on property. Collier and Chambers offer advice on how to develop a spa that will stand out from the crowd and bring in significant revenue at the same time.

Do you get immensely happy with a certain product or service and immediately want to tell your friend about it? Well, the brand that you recommend is at gains here, as it gets a loyal customer as well as a new potential customer. This is called word-of-mouth marketing and it is considered to be the most trusted form of advertising.
From a marketer’s point of view, customer engagement is an art form you’re constantly trying to master. There’s no single formula, no correct answer, no perfect approach, and the rules of the game are frequently changing. It’s hard to figure it out, and as an industry, we’ve been at it a long time.
As the customer journey extends across mobile, social and messaging, marketing has had to adapt.

The keratin filament cytoskeleton is vital to the normal function of epithelial cells. It provides structural support and regulates different aspects of cell metabolism. Mutations in keratins 5 and 14 cause a skin fragility disorder, epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS). Patients with severe EBS have an increased cumulative risk for basal cell carcinoma.
Untangling education research can often feel overwhelming, which may be why many research-based practices take a long time to show up in real classrooms. It could also be one reason John Hattie's work and book, Visible Learning, appeals to so many educators. Rather than focusing on one aspect of teaching, Hattie synthesizes education research done all over the world in a variety of settings into meta analyses, trying to understand what works in classrooms.
How can you tell if a student really understands something?
They learn early on to fake understanding exceptionally well, and even the best assessment leaves something on the table. (In truth, a big portion of the time students simply don't know what they don't know.)
The idea of understanding is, of course, at the heart of all learning, and solving it as a puzzle is one of the three pillars of formal learning environments and education.
