Shea butter is widely used in many moisturizing products and cosmetics. Do you know that even Cleopatra was known to have used Shea butter? What is Shea Butter? According to the dictionary, “a whitish or yellowish fat obtained from the seeds of the shea tree, found in Africa, which is used as food and for making soap and candles.”

The introduction of scrubs has become the method of choice to return the skin to its full radiance. Gone are the days when one used a pumice stone on elbows or feet. Gone is the overnight use of oily products to smooth those rough areas. Sugar Scrub, once applied, produces soft and smooth skin combined with a lovely scent.

Sugar Scrub has become one of the hottest products today. It is an ideal gift to give for any occasion, either to men or women. It comes in a variety of scents, and is affordable. I don’t know of anyone today who wouldn’t love to experience a Sugar Scrub, especially if you offered to give them one. Once tried, you will be hooked on it, and so will those who have received it as gifts.

Getting Control Over Upper Lip Wrinkles.

Smokers accept that they’ll create lip wrinkles. However, if you’re one of the millions of women who’ve never smoked, then you’re right to be frustrated by the emergence of these fine lip wrinkles and lip lines. For awhile, ordinary cosmetics gave the cover-up necessities to make you look OK. However, time pecks away and now those lip lines have deepened and make-up only produces garish colored shadow-lines… creating an eye-catching draw to your wrinkles.

Plump Lip Strategy #1

Purified and safe FDA approved bovine collagen material is “harvested” from source beasties, placed in a refrigerated vial and delivered “fresh” each day to cosmetic surgeons performing collagen lip enhancement surgery.

Based on your lip size and shape, along with the depth or volume of the lip lines, the ideal amount of collagen is carefully injected. Results? You get luscious lips once again.

Kissable Lip Strategy # 2

Who’d ever think that your fat butt might be the source of “material” to create full sensuously curved lips? Such a transfer happens all the time as women re-create

I had it done yesterday, and after arriving home, my fiancee had a tear in his eye and nothing but words of praise for me. I could not believe it. My hair looked and felt so healthy, like pure silk or a baby’s hair, and was completely transformed to silky, straight locks with no frizz. I looked like a totally different person. If I had a before and after picture, you would think it was two different women. I woke up today and only had to brush it and it was perfect! I can’t wet it for 72 hours, but after this getting ready will be so simple. I went to the gym today and three guys were flirting with me, which hardly ever happened to me before. I would suggest this for anyone that wants a beautiful change and a much simpler way of living – low maintenance, yet beautiful.

It was expensive – I paid $450 and left a generous tip, but it was well worth every penny. My technician had been trained to do this and has spent the last five years doing Japanese straightening and told me despite all the hard work, he

Aging of the skin

There are several factors influencing how quickly our skin ages, ranging from genetic factors, your natural skin type, as well as external factors such as exposure to sunlight, environmental factors and whether you smoke or not. In general, pale skins wrinkle faster than darker skins, which are protected by increased amounts of pigment and lipids.

Another vital factor is, of course, our age. Our skin looks and functions very differently at 20 as opposed to when we are 60.

Below is a skin care plan of how to look after your skin as the decades go by and how to adapt your skin care regime accordingly.

Looking after your skin in your 20s

Your 20s is a great time for your skin. You’ve left behind the adolescence acne and your skin has a radiant, youthful glow and the epidermis is well toned.

However, this is not the time to be complacent. In your 20s skin cell renewal drops by up to 28 per cent, dead skin cells are not as easily shed and external factors are starting to have a greater impact, leaving your skin slightly duller.

This week at Hair Resources, we interviewed Richard Gizzi of Richard Gizzi & Associates, in Ft. Myers Florida. He discussed the details of his new hair extension method called FLhair Xtensions. The Xtensions are available in strand by strand and also in grafted form for hair loss clients. Both methods use Euro-Asian human hair that is processed for tangle control, color selections and chemical texturizing at a production facility in Asia. Textures and waves for both Caucasian and ethnic markets are available in all popular colors in 16″ hair lengths.

The FLhair Xtension method is easy and quick to put in and take out, making it a preferred method among hair stylists. Each hair stylist is trained and certified in the method before they can attach hair extensions on clients. Because of the quick installation, removal and streamlined production, FLhair Xtensions are available for a much lower cost than traditional strand by strand hair extensions. A typical full head of extension hair will run around $800.

Traditional methods require the hair stylist to invest from $2,000 to $5,000 for training, equipment and certification. Flhair Xtensions allows the stylist to add hair extension services to his or

One of the problems with nutrition and hair however is that we can’t programme nutrients to do what we want them to do. Because hair growth is not a priority for optimum health, the body may give priority use of nutrients to other functions before hair re-growth.

B vitamins (especially B6, biotin and inositol) have all been found to be important in hair growth, so a heavy-duty B complex is recommended. Avoid alcohol and caffeine as they destroy B1 and other B vitamins. Other important nutrients are manganese, magnesium, silica, kelp and vitamins C and E.

Stress worsens hair loss. It can reduce scalp blood flow, in addition to interfering with digestion and absorption. If stress is a consideration support the adrenals with vitamins B5 and C or glandulars.

Those whose Ethnic background are from South Asia i.e. Indian, Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc; have much darker skin than their northern caucasian counterpart because they have an increased amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin is specifically the pigment in the skin and it protects the skin from sunlight. This actually helps to keep Asian people looking younger than people with white skin. The melanin pigment also slows down the aging process. However as Asian peple age their skin can conceive unbalanced pigmented. This can be seen as darker patches. Unbalanced pigmentation can also be caused by swelling or irratation. If a part of the skin becomes inflamed or red due to being bit by an insect or from an acne pimple, once the redness or inflammation subsides a brown area can be left behind.

Asians although in general are no more oily than caucasian skin but according to dermatologists, Asian women tend to have more oilier skin than recent Asian immigrants. Some dermatologists contribute this on the grounds that there is higher fat content in the diet. There is a theory that diet does not directly affect skin condition, except when it is poor enough to affect
