Confucius once said, "Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see it."
You can say that again.
In our defense, it can be tough to be satisfied with our looks when we can't help but compare ourselves with the supermodels and Hollywood stars we see on screen and in the news. If you're frustrated with what you see in the mirror but not ready to commit to cosmetic surgery, then you might want to check out medical spas.
With so much conflicting information at our fingertips, it's hard to know what to believe. We all know the myriad of benefits that exercise provides: improved mood, stress relief, increased energy, disease prevention, and weight control. Working out can certainly do good things for your skin as well. It increases the blood flow, which carries essential oxygen and nutrients to skin cells. Working out also has been found to lower stress levels; since stress heightens the oil levels of your skin, exercise can be a preventative measure against acne.
As some can attest, exercise can also increase the likelihood of a breakout.

When you wash your hair, clean or moisturize your skin, polish your nails, or put on makeup, deodorant or sunscreen, do you ever think about whether the product you're using may do more harm than good?
Maybe you should. Thanks to a lack of federal regulations, the watchword for consumers of cosmetics and personal care products should be caveat emptor: Let the buyer beware.
When you're fighting the good fight against annoying acne breakouts, your instinct is probably to de-grease at all costs. The idea of adding oil to your face is crazy right? While it seems counterintuitive, essential oils for acne treatment are actually a thing.
When used topically, "most essential oils work due to their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties," says Dr. Sejal Shah, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City.
"I was very impressed with the NCEA Certification program. It challenged me to increase my knowledge about esthetics and I am grateful. I am a better esthetician because of the NCEA! NCEA is a wonderful association to be a part of. I encourage every esthetician to be NCEA Certified."

A lot of talk is centered on the challenges that arise when managing millennials. They are easily distracted, jump jobs frequently, and really don’t like losing. But what about the millennials who are doing the managing? Now that 75.4 million millennials have entered the U.S. workforce, the probability of that scenario is becoming more likely. Probably the biggest misconception employers have in regard to this generation is assuming that the group feels entitled to these positions, rather than realizing they are just searching for empowerment, according to a Gallup study regarding millennials and their career development.
With more than 700 million monthly active users, businesses are paying more attention to Instagram than ever before.
In fact, the photocentric service is so popular that in an effort to make themselves more attractive to Instagrammers, some businesses are designing their physical spaces to be more photogenic.
While it can be difficult to evaluate the ROI of their Instagram presences (something Instagram itself is working to change with measurement tools), there's evidence that many businesses are seeing tangible value from their Instagram efforts.
With all the advertising and marketing tools CMOs have at their disposal, nothing has quite the impact of referrals from friends, colleagues, and sometimes even complete strangers. Word-of-mouth marketing adds a personal layer to a customer's education about a brand, making them more likely to convert. But in an era where a large portion of human communication is conducted through electronic devices, how will proactive CMOs and their teams best encourage customers to recommend a brand?

If you feel like you’ve been seeing more Facebook Live videos, you’re right. Now, 1 in every 5 Facebook videos is live, and the daily watch time for Facebook Live broadcasts has grown by more than four times since 2016. In a single year, live videos went from a fad to a must-do marketing tactic. Your audience is already there — and so is the incentive. Live videos are ranked higher in the News Feed, and many of your followers will get a notification telling them you’re live.
The lipophilic antioxidant vitamin E has been used for more than 50 years in clinical and experimental dermatology. However, although a large number of case reports were published, there is still a lack of controlled clinical studies providing a rationale for clinical indications and dosage. In contrast, advances in basic research on the physiology, mechanism of action, penetration, bioconversion, and photoprotection of vitamin E in human skin have led to the development of numerous new formulations for use in cosmetics and skin care products.

I've had a lifetime of mentors, starting first with my father, who at 96 continues to be an inspirational leader by example. In his career, he ran a successful retirement fund. To this day, he maintains contact with his employees and is a mentor to others by his sheer presence. He believes in leaving a legacy. Then, there are the personal development mentors I've embraced over the years, including Earl Nightingale, who was the first.
Overcrowded classrooms are one of the biggest workplace headaches for teachers and many education experts argue for the benefits of smaller class sizes. Both the gains and drawbacks to smaller class sizes are touched upon in a 2017 study that looks at the push for smaller classes in New York City's public schools. The study's author, Michael Gilraine, isolated the effect of class size reductions in 473 of the city's schools, looking at third- through sixth-grade classes. He focused on classes that moved above or below the city's 32 student cap. When classes moved from 32 to 33 students a new teacher would have to be added, however, if they dropped down from 33 to 32 or under, no new teacher.
