Whether it's for license renewal or NCEA Certified credential recertification, career development, or to increase job opportunities, the need for continuing education is a very real demand of every skin care professional.

SDSS now provides affordable, quality continuing education courses at your convenience, presented by experts in a variety of subject areas!

Cupping made headlines during the 2016 Rio Olympics, when Michael Phelps attributed the round, purple bruises on his back to the alternative medicine practice used to treat everything from muscle soreness to arthritis and blood diseases. Now, celebrities are getting the skin-suctioning therapy on a new part of their bodies: their faces.
Spa treatments are a luxury that not all travelers are keen on experiencing, especially when visiting a new destination. The usual itinerary will comprise of tours, some shopping and food adventures. A few hours in a destination spa, however, is not merely a means of relieving the body from stress, fatigue and tension. It is also a means of exploring and discovering other cultures reflected through traditional therapy, use of local ingredients and unique settings for relaxation. Of course, it always helps to nourish mind, body and soul whether it is upon landing or just before taking off to return to reality. Whichever the case, these destination spas are worth adding to the bucket list of a quintessential spa-holic.
Update: In case you thought your skin care routine was crowded enough, it looks like there's a new kind of to-do making the rounds online: face shaving. In the video, which has logged more than 400,000 views since Insider Beauty posted it to Facebook, you can see a handful of women yielding a razor pre-makeup application. If it sounds crazy, know that the concept isn't without merit: We once reported that because shaving removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells sitting on the surface, it then allows foundation to smooth on more seamlessly. Whether you're willing to put in the work, well, that all comes down to preference.
Cosmetic Surgery Times
The newest American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery annual survey suggests chemical peels remain popular among surgeons and cosmetic patients. More than half of facial plastic surgeons responding indicated chemical peels are in strong demand.
AAFPRS President Dr. Fred G. Fedok, who practices in Foley, Alabama, tells Cosmetic Surgery Times that he has been performing chemical peels since the early 1990s and has lectured and published on his experience. The most popular chemical peel at his practice, he says, is a combined medium depth 35 percent trichloracetic acid and Jessner's Solution peel.

Harvard Business Review
A professor at Harvard Business School Francesca Gino writes: "Think back to your first day on the job. If you're like most people, you felt excited and were eager to get down to work. But, based on the results of field research I recently conducted, I am willing to guess that just a few months later that excitement dissipated and you began to feel dissatisfaction, even boredom, with some aspects of your job. You've probably witnessed a similar trend among the employees you've hired and managed as well."

For many of us, stress and a rigid routine are a part of our daily rhythm, and there's no escape. For author and speaker Jason Kotecki, a whole other way to live exists — and he's on a mission to remind people of the alternatives. Kotecki recently addressed a packed room at the Gaylord Texan for the Commission for Case Manager Certification's New World Symposium. We are fighting an enemy we have never even heard of before, he said, and it goes by the name of adultitis.
In putting together digital marketing strategies for 2017, many brands have the same idea. Review what worked from last year, compose innovative marketing across different channels, find ways to increase conversions, etc. But what many brands also have in common is a tendency to neglect one of the most important and overlooked components of digital marketing.

It's been six months since Instagram launched its newest feature: Instagram Stories. As a refresher, this was Instagram's response to Snapchat's success. You can find Instagram Stories at the top of your feed. There, you click to reveal 10-second videos or pictures that disappear in 24 hours. You can even add text, doodles or stickers atop them. In short, yes, it functions almost exactly like Snapchat. So how does Instagram Stories compare to Snapchat in number of users?

Atopic dermatitis is the most common skin disorder in young children worldwide, with a high impact on morbidity and quality of life. To date, no prospective study has been published on the incidence and potential predictors of AD in South East Asian populations. The Indonesian Prospective Study of Atopic Dermatitis in Infants will address the genetic, metabolic and dietary characteristics of mothers and their offspring, as well as potential determinants of AD within the first year of infant life.
What if your true learning potential was unknown, even unknowable, at best?
What if it were impossible to foresee what you could accomplish with a few years of passion, toil, and training? According to Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, this isn't some hypothetical situation, dependent on any manner of factors from genes to environment. It's a mindset. And it's one you can cultivate at any point in life.
