Coveting youth has never been more popular — or controversial.
Beauty magazine Allure made a splash this past summer when it announced it would be banning the term "anti-aging" within its pages. The phrase is "subtly reinforcing the message that aging is a condition we need to battle — think anti-anxiety meds, antivirus software, or anti-fungal spray," Allure's editor-in-chief Michelle Lee wrote. "Growing older is a wonderful thing because it means that we get a chance, every day, to live a full, happy life." Its Conde Nast sibling Vogue Italia also chimed in by putting septuagenarian actress Lauren Hutton on the cover of its October issue, dedicated to women above 60.
Shailene Woodley has made it known she's all about that "natural" lifestyle. You're more likely to catch her raving about plants than injections or chemical beauty treatments, and her latest endorsement went to a natural treatment that's been around for ages: mud baths. She recently shared a photo on Instagram of herself taking a soak.

Helping Estheticians raise standards with national credentialing and continuing education accreditation.
One Spa in Edinburgh has become one of the U.K.'s first hotel spas to introduce a specialist treatment for guests living with, or recovering from, cancer.
The Cancer Touch Therapy treatment — delivered in partnership with skincare brand Made for Life Organics — involves a sequence of slow, rhythmic Tui Na Chinese massage techniques and has been designed to allow guests to drift away into a meditative state of relaxation.
American men are more aware of their appearance than ever — and also more open to the idea of cosmetic enhancement. A recent survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that nearly one-third (31 percent) of men are extremely likely to consider aesthetic treatment. Yet they account for only 9.3 percent of surgery patients and 8.9 percent of those seeking minimally invasive procedures, according to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
"The NCEA National Esthetician Certification Program is the Gold Standard for Excellence. The program highlights the science behind the esthetic profession."

You may not be well-known in the business community, but that doesn't mean you can't be a business celebrity, and a wealthy one at that. Your shortcut to fame and fortune may be as simple as identifying a niche market, and becoming a specialist in it. Niche marketing entails targeting and focusing on a specific segment of an industry, one that is overlooked by other companies. That oversight leaves you with an opportunity to provide products and services that are otherwise unavailable.
Former CEO of POPEYES and author of "Dare To Serve" writes: "Full disclosure: I suffer from what psychologists' call 'hurry sickness.' I didn't know it had a name until recently, but nonetheless, I've always known that I suffer from it. I jam-pack my days. I overschedule. I say 'yes' way too often. The benefits of my disease include getting a lot done, being admired by others who do less, and feeling an almost constant adrenaline rush. It is exciting to be in a hurry! But there are serious downsides to this disease."
Depending on the products and services you sell, you’re likely already thinking of ways to maximize your business for this coming holiday shopping season.
But even if you don’t sell traditionally “giftable” items (think web hosting or cybersecurity packages), you still might want to tap into the trend of increased spending. Many consumers are already in the spending mood, so why not capitalize on that?
Influencer marketing is the buzz of the marketing industry, but why are so many agencies and brands stopping there? Influencers are a largely untapped resource that can provide so much more than just pushing content and products. The next step is to develop these relationships even further.
Influencers should be incorporated into every aspect of marketing — from product creation to market research and all the way through campaign planning and marketing execution.

Anti-aging cosmetics are a mainstay in the skin care regimen irrespective of gender or human ethnics. Skin aging involves functional slowdown combined with environmental induced alterations. This paper focuses on cosmetic ingredients that aim at alleviating the signs of skin aging, with proven/controlled results of efficacy.
When Emerie Lukas was hired to develop and teach a STEM Foundations course to middle school students at the Dayton Regional STEM School, she was starting from scratch. The stated goal of the course was to prepare students for more rigorous work in science, technology, engineering and math classes in high school, but Lukas knew that meant far more than academic preparation. She needed to teach her students how to give and take effective feedback, how to solve conflicts, how to organize themselves, and how to present, discuss and communicate their ideas. She knew without these qualities students wouldn’t be prepared for a rigorous STEM environment.
Educators have learned much about the benefits of using projects for learning, and collaboration is easily recognized as an important skill for students to build. There are very few arguments against having students work together in class and on assignments.
However, the challenge facing many educators is not in wanting their students to work together, but in figuring out how to group students together in the most effective ways. We do not want to create groups that hinder the progress of any of our students!
This simple guide can help you the next time you are creating groups for an assignment or task in your classroom!
Wildfires are an experience that can't be explained, unless you've experienced them yourself. Imagine grabbing the kids, the pets and evacuating, like, right now! Suffice it to say, your skin care routine is not your priority.
