Botox Makes Women Look Older


Despite the fact that Botox is popular among many those days, long-term consequences of this drug have not been studied much. One recent study has shown that safety of those ”youth injections” is clearly exaggerated.

Scientists from the University of Calgary (Canada) have proved that botox injections can lead to sagging muscles, loss of muscle mass, and replacement of muscle mass with fat. Moreover, these changes occur not only in the injected muscles but in other muscle groups as well. In essence, this suggests that people who abuse use of Botox eventually will look older than those who did not go for the ”youth injections”.

During the study the scientists injected Botox in rabbits. Eventually, the injected rabbits lost over 50 per cent of their muscle mass.

The study proves that Botox is poorly understood regardless of its popularity. For example, in 2009 over 2.5 million people applied for botox in US. This is a growing tendency, as injections are progressively becoming more affordable. Now, even average and low-income Americans can afford Botox injections for $300-600.

Komen Foundation Launches 'The Promise' Fragrance


The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, which has raised and invested $1.5 billion in fighting breast cancer since 1982, has taken its crusade into new territory — the fragrance bar.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, which has raised and invested $1.5 billion in fighting breast cancer since 1982, has launched a women’s fragrance called ‘Promise Me’, as a fund raising vehicle.

‘Promise Me’ is also the title of the book written by Nancy Brinker, founder of the organizations and sister to the late Susan Komen. The title of the fragrance alludes to Brinker’s promise to her dying sister to launch a mission to end the pain and suffering of breast cancer.

“My sister was always passionate about fragrance,” Brinker said. “She had a great fashion sense.”

Use Skin Oil


Some of us underestimate the value of skin oil. There are many questions on how to use it properly. Women often note that it is extremely difficult to apply the oil uniformly.

Applying the Skin Oil

In order to achieve uniform distribution apply the oil to damp skin. It is very difficult to apply oil uniformly on dry skin. Damp skin is perfect for this. But, make sure that the skin is not too wet, because then the oil will simply slip right off.

The Amount of Oil for Skin

You will need little oil, but not too little. The optimal amount of oil for face is 2-3 drops. The amount will depend on the type of oil. For example, one drop of rose oil is enough.

Massage the Skin

Do not forget to massage your skin. Nutrients and antioxidants have to penetrate the outer layer of the skin instead of being retained on the surface of the skin. So, first squeeze 2-3 drops of oil on your palm and then evenly spread the oil between the two palms. Finally, gently massage the face with your palms. Start with the center of the forehead and massage with up and outward movements. Do not massage around the eyes, simply gently press this area with your palms.

Base for Skin Oil

If your moisturizing cream is water-based – use it before applying the oil. Water can not penetrate through the layer of oil. If your moisturizer is oil-based then you can use it after applying the skin oil.

Mixing Oil for Skin with Moisturizing Creams

For more delicate use of skin oil- mix it with the moisturizer. Those of you new to skin oil can add a few drops to the moisturizing cream. This useful trick will help you apply the oil evenly and will prevent unexpected skin reactions. The enriched moisturizer will have extra nourishment and will help the oil penetrate deeper into the skin layer.

Chemical Peels Reduce Immunity


Passion for chemical peels designed to rejuvenate the skin is dangerous for immunity. Israeli scientists from the University of Haifa made this disappointing conclusion.

The experts analyzed data on the immune system of women, who often use chemical peels and those who do not. The antibody of women in the first group was markedly reduced, and this means resistance to infectious and viral diseases was also lowered.

The doctors attribute this to the fact that chemicals for skin peeling remove the skin upper layers and penetrate very deeply. Thus, they irritate the surface of the dermis and destroy cellular structures. Microbes attack the organs of lymphatic system, and the organs find it difficult to resist under a reduced immunity. Therefore, a regular use of chemical peels leads to the occurrence of various diseases.

Hair Become Thicker After Shaving


Not all girls like using shaving razors for hair removal. It is believed that the hair becomes much thicker after shaving. That is why some people believe that shaving should only be used as a last resort. After all, shaving is in fact one of the most effective, and most importantly, painless methods of hair removal. Are those who discriminate against shaving right?

Here is the answer to the question: does the hair become thicker after shaving? Shaving DOES NOT make hair thicker! This is just a visible effect. The fact is that when hair grows, it has a conic tip, which makes it visually thin. And when hair is shaved, the shape of the tip is changed, it becomes blunt, which makes it visually thicker.

After shaving, the hair also does not become rougher. It simply becomes shorter, and this deprives it of its former elasticity.

So do not give up shaving procedure, it does not damage the hair. You would agree that waxing is too painful, and you can safely transfer to shaving during winter.
