They can be impressive, grotesque, and even downright unbelievable. We're talking about the recent rise of DIY beauty hacks, brought to us via Instagram. Where a quick delve into this world of beauty tutorials would have once revealed a host of light-hearted eyeliner how-tos, today it throws up a series of increasingly extreme procedures, often pushing worrying, controversial advice and unregulated products with the promise of transformative results. Products that are produced aren't always subject to strict health and safety regulations. So, is Instagram really a safe and viable source of skin care tips?
Lux Resorts & hotels is opening a "sanctuary to well-being" in the Sichuan province of Southwest China in 2018.
Set amidst an organic farm, the 40-bedroom Lux Organic Escapes Chengdu features a holistic, integrated approach to wellness designed to detoxify, promote mindfulness and bring a "fresh perspective to living."
Whoever mused that getting there was half the fun clearly hasn't spent enough time flying commercial, crammed into a coach seat sized for a third-grader, sneezed on by passengers and jostled (sometimes, outright assaulted) by grouchy flight attendants.
No matter how glamorous the destination — or destination spa — the indignities of modern travel are just half the battle. The other half? Fighting the resulting symptoms: sore shoulders, a piercing crick in the neck, or worse, jet lag or altitude sickness.
Whether you're a full-time mom or a full-time employee, catching time for glam or even just basic grooming is challenging these days.
When you do get a lunch break, you're running errands, or you know, actually eating/getting fresh air like you should, and by the time 6 p.m. rolls around, you figure all the good beauty stops are shut. Well, not anymore.

Which is more difficult: taking work away from an employee or giving her additional work? For any manager who has tried to reallocate responsibilities among staff, it is clear that taking away work can be just as difficult as adding it. As managers, we must use our knowledge of the role, the person and how the combination of the two affect the business to inform our decisions and fully impact our approach to communicating the change.

Leadership can be defined with so many phrases, in so many stanzas, by so many people — well-known or unknown. Their words can tug on the strings of so many individuals simply looking to be great at what they do in life. As much as we would like to believe otherwise, not everyone can be a leader. And perhaps even more taboo to discuss, there are those in leadership roles who should be the worker bee rather than the queen. Leadership is a process that some refuse to acknowledge.
Many of us have heard the proverb "there is nothing new under the sun," which reminds us that no matter how ingenious our innovations, they're almost always based on something that's been around longer than we've been alive. Like many things, this logic holds true for content marketing.
The reason content marketing has been around for so long is that it works. But like any trend — technology or social — it also follows the typical S-curve of channel maturation — which means that it was most effective in its early days and has become less effective as more people jump on the bandwagon.

Facebook is for connecting with family and friends, while Instagram is for finding beauty and inspiration. That's why on Instagram the top types of accounts people engage with are close friends and family, celebrities, brands, acquaintances and humor accounts. People come to Instagram to find their new dream car, vacation locale or home décor project. But, how does this vary by industry? Learn more about how users with different interests engage with Instagram.

Skin aging is a multifactorial phenomenon, which causes alterations in skin physiological functions, and, most visibly, phenotypic changes. In particular, during the aging process, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin fibers undergo structural and functional changes.
The ability to think critically is one skill separating innovators from followers. It combats the power of advertisers, unmasks the unscrupulous and pretentious, and exposes unsupported arguments. Students enjoy learning the skill because they immediately see how it gives them more control. Yet, critical thinking is simple: It merely is the ability to understand why things are the way they are and to understand the potential consequences of actions.
When teens complain that school starts too early, they're not wrong, according to new research. This comes as school districts across the country — including in Colorado, California, Indiana and Tennessee — consider starting school later. The study, published last month in the peer-reviewed Journal of Human Resources, looks at districts in Florida and uses a novel approach: the fact that some areas in the state operate in the central time zone while others use eastern time.
