In the Allure September issue, we took a vow to no longer use the term "anti-aging" in all of our lexicon. Aging is the natural progression of humans — it's just what happens. "If there's one inevitability in life, it's that we're getting older. Every minute. Every second," Michelle Lee, Allure's editor-in-chief, wrote in her September issue editor's letter. "We produced a video recently that featured 64-year-old gray-haired Jo Johnson, who made the poignant observation that aging should be appreciated because "some of us don't get an opportunity to age." Repeat after me: Growing older is a wonderful thing because it means that we get a chance, every day, to live a full, happy life." But just because we're aging doesn't mean we can't take care of ourselves in the process.
Soon, we will be closing the pool, putting away the patio furniture, and getting jackets out of the closet. As summer comes to an end, our skin is usually in need of some tender loving care and it is a good time to think about repairing your summer skin damage.
Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa, in Peru, Illinois, provides medical-grade professional cosmetic treatments for the skin. We asked them to give their opinion on the top three procedures they do to reverse sun damage. Dr. Nicole Norris says "Microneedling, laser photofacial and chemical peels are by far the most effective ways to reverse damage from thermal energy safely and effectively."

We all know by now to wash behind our ears, but are you remembering to exfoliate your brows? Brow specialists swear by brow exfoliation to help prevent ingrown hairs and encourage hair growth. And no, it's not just another step you'll have to fold into your multistep skin care routine. "Exfoliating your brows can easily become part of [it]," Lisa Potter-Dixon, head makeup artist and brow expert for Benefit Cosmetics, tells Allure.
What's more Instagram-worthy than an 11-foot-tall living plant wall for impromptu posing? Aside from an 11-foot-tall floral wall, probably nothing. But you might not expect to find this leafy photo focal point inside a suburban salon. At Tribe Style Bar in Philadelphia, husband-and-wife duo Emily and Andrew De Stefano found all the inspiration they needed at nearby Longwood Gardens when creating their dream salon.

Business 2 Community
In this rapidly evolving digital climate, customers have come to expect consistent, satisfying, and seamless online shopping experiences. Any retailer looking to increase new customer acquisition, order volume, revenue, and more, will need a solid customer service strategy.
Customer service is now social. Online shopping has empowered customers to problem solve, find answers independently, and collaborate with other shoppers.

In today's current work environment, soft skills are losing to the role of technology. With smartphones, tablets and all forms of social media, soft skills can get lost in the shuffle. What exactly are soft skills? They are attributes that will help you in both business and in life. It all starts with communication. Because we depend upon our mobile devices for communication, having a conversation with someone in person is becoming a thing of the past.
We all know detailed product descriptions are important for selling products online. But a picture is still worth more than all those words. In fact, one survey found that 67 percent of customers believe product images are more important than descriptions and reviews when it comes to deciding whether to buy.

With the simple click of a button, your social page can get hundreds or even thousands of social media followers. More accounts than you think are chock-full of fake followers. The biggest names on Twitter, like Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, both have more than 58 million fake followers. But while it sounds good to skyrocket your social following, is it too good to be true? Let's look at how buying social followers works and see if there’s ever a time you should buy followers.

Incontinence-associated dermatitis is one of the most common skin problems in adults who are incontinent for urine, stool, or both. In practice, products and procedures are the same for both prevention and treatment of IAD.
The objective of this review was to assess the effectiveness of various products and procedures to prevent
and treat incontinence-associated dermatitis in adults.
As digital devices become more common in classrooms, teachers and students are discovering that what worked in the analog world may not be as effective in the digital one. Nowhere is this more clear than with note taking, a long-standing and important practice in most classrooms. For this reason, few empirical studies may be more detrimental to encouraging the use of technology in education than Mueller and Oppenheimer's (2014) "The Pen is Mightier than the Keyboard" as well as Carter, Greenberg and Walker's (2016) "Effect of Computer Usage on Academic Performance."
Dominique Smith writes: "Just like every student wonders what their teachers will be like this school year, teachers are similarly curious.
This curiosity builds over the years, often catalyzed by the fear of failure.
What if I fail?
What if my lessons don't "work"? What if my students dislike me?
These are the questions that run through our mind until we are in our classrooms with our new students.
As I think of classroom management and the strategies that go into making a positive classroom community, my first thought is relationships. Relationships are key to building classroom norms and classroom expectations — maybe your most powerful tool as a teacher."
