We're getting some mixed messages about beauty
Recently, at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, where Seth Meyers interviewed Amy Poehler about her engaging new book "Yes, Please," it was obvious that every woman in the sold-out auditorium of 900 people believed she was Poehler's best friend. The audience cheered when the petite Poehler made her entrance in a black suit, platform heels and her mane of blonde hair. And they roared their approval when she talked about her smart-girl, anti-bullying, pro-kindness website. Oddly, during the hour-long love fest, there was not one question from Meyers or the audience about the pressure on Hollywood women to stay attractive — though that would seem to be on topic when studies show that only 29.2 percent of actors in the top 100 films in the last six years have been female.

Cell Deficiency and the Benefit of the Mushroom

Presented by Patricia Martorana

About the webinar:
Traditions of healing are now redefined and mushrooms are making an impact on the aesthetic industry. They have the ability to normalize skin's pH and remove inflammation. Mushroom stem cells act like super sponges that eliminate toxins from the skin, making them ideal to combat environmental stress. They contain power-house antioxidant that enhances cellular recovery from environmental surroundings.

At the conclusion of this presentation the skin care specialist will be able to:
1) Analyze and assess free radical damage and cell deficiency.
2) Recognize the use of medicinal mushrooms in ancient traditions.
3) List the five key mushrooms, their functions.
4) Distinguish how stem cell technology can be applied in treatments to replenish healthy skin cells.
