The power of galvanic treatments in your spa
Les Nouvelles Esthétiques & Spa
Director of global education for The International Dermal Institute and Dermalogic Annet King writes: Galvanic current offers the professional skin therapist a fantastic array of opportunities to "power up" the service menu. Yet, throughout my years, many skin therapists shy away from this modality due to a lack of knowledge about how to use it. Here's the buzz: This electrical therapy is extremely safe, painless, integrates easily to optimize other protocols and will deliver dynamic, long-lasting results for every skin concern. When you consider that it's used to electrically infuse medication into the skin, we also know that it's a proven scientific modality.

Could acupuncture help your skin?
Pai Skincare
Skin solutions blogger Sarah Brown writes: Experiencing stressful or high-pressure situations causes our cortisol levels to increase. Prolonged anxiety causes cortisol to be released at high levels for long periods of time. This causes inflammation, which suppresses key bodily functions that keep us healthy. Unfortunately, these internal reactions to cortisol are mirrored externally on our skin, worsening inflammatory skin conditions including acne, urticaria, eczema and dermatitis. Always keen to explore holistic approaches to health, I began having regular acupuncture around five years ago to help combat my stress levels and, in turn, help calm my skin.

Flexible work policies could be key to more rested employees
By Caitlin Harrison
Are your employees getting enough sleep? Likely not. Chances are they're sleeping less than the seven to nine hours recommended by the National Sleep Foundation — averaging 6.8 hours per night, according to Gallup. But there may be something you can do about it. A new study published in the journal Sleep Health shows that workers will likely get more sleep when their employers play a more active role in ensuring they're better rested — especially when they offer flexible work policies.
