According to an analysis published in Tuesday's edition of Archives of Dermatology, Beantown has 46.9 skin specialists per 100,000 residents. More

The beauty advantage
Newsweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Most of us have heard the story of Debrahlee Lorenzana, the 33-year-old Queens, N.Y., woman who sued Citibank last month, claiming that, in pencil skirts, turtlenecks, and peep-toe stilettos, she was fired from her desk job for being "too hot." We've also watched Lorenzana's credibility come into question, as vintage clips of her appearance on a reality TV show about plastic surgery portray a rambling, attention-obsessed twit, stuffed to the brim with implants and collagen. Creepy, yes. But for all the talk about this woman's motives—and whether or not she was indeed fired for her looks—there's one question nobody seems to want to ask: isn't it possible Lorenzana's looks got her the job in the first place?

Botox stops frowning and makes one happier—study
TheMedGuru    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Botox not only erases wrinkles but also tricks your brain into making you feel happier, reveals a path breaking study by researchers from the University of Wisconsin, U.S. The very common anti-wrinkles treatment, working to smoothen fine lines by paralyzing face muscles, forces people to stop frowning when they are unhappy.
