We all know about sugar’s link to diabetes and weight gain, but it may surprise you to know that it can also contribute to how old you look.
According to Meriden, CT, dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD, processed and refined sugars play a pretty significant role in inflammation and advanced aging. “Glycation is the long-term effect that sugar has on the body,” he says. “High-glycemic foods are loaded with sugars that, when released, bind to proteins in the cells and to collagen in the skin. This sugar-protein bond also produces free radicals, which drive the production of inflammation. This glycation makes it difficult for cells to function properly, resulting in destructions to all organ systems, including the skin.”
Even though it’s hard to omit sugar entirely from your diet, natural sugars are thought to not cause a quick spike in blood sugar (since they help the body absorb sugar) like refined and processed sugars can, although any amount of sugar can cause it to climb somewhat.
RSession Tools by Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri take on the world of beauty.
To create innovative hairstyles, you need innovative tools. A hairstylist’s imagination shouldn’t be limited and controlled by the tools available to them. No one knows this better than Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri, inventors of RSession Tools. The first two tools manufactured were the Nalu Waver and Root Control, both of which are included in the Cosmetology kit for students here at Rizzieri Aveda School. Now featuring combs, heat mats and more, RSession Tools continues to shine in the industry.

April is Earth Month for Aveda and Rizzieri continues to participate through our annual Walk for Water. This year, on April 22nd, Rizzieri staff, students and friends will be walking throughout the Voorhees Town Center in an effort to raise funds for the Clean Ocean Action. The COA works to clean up the shore lines of the New Jersey and New York coastlines. In 2010, Aveda and their partners helped to raise an incredible $3.7 million which supported access to clean water at home and around the world. This brings the cumulative total to $18 million raised during Aveda Earth Month, thus far. This year, Aveda has raised their goals, and Rizzieri will be raising our goals, as well. Aveda hopes to raise $4 million in 2011 through clean water projects. We hope to raise funds through donations, t-shirt sales, and raffle baskets at the Walk for Water this April. For information on the Walk or for Earth Month, please contact Chrissy Oakley at COakley@Rizzieri.com. We look forward to having you help us in our quest to bring clean water to each and every person around the world.

We’ve all been there: wanting to scream but taking the high road and plastering a smile on our faces instead of revealing our true feelings. But will that innocent act negatively affect your mood?
Smiling may alter the first impressions you make for the better, but the act of smiling itself may negatively impact you. A recent study by a business scholar at Michigan State University found that people in customer service positions who force smiles often end up worsening their mood and productivity. The opposite was true for employees who smile as a result of positive thinking.
However, the findings also suggested that using positive thoughts for deep acting could result in making people feel more like actors than their true selves. To everyone who works in a service-related job: Do you find that the frequency and reasons behind your smiles alter your mood one way or the other?
