Sure, the way you choose to care for your skin plays a role in how quickly you will age, but there’s one aging factor that there’s no controlling: your genes. Similar to how they determine your appearance and your overall health, your genes also dictate at what rate you will age and what areas of the face will age first and be most affected. Even though there is nothing currently available that can be done to genetically alter how you will age, there are many skin-care products that purportedly analyze your DNA and use that information to prescribe a solution to stave off the signs of aging. Keep in mind that most of us tend to age similarly to our parents. It is believed that 75 percent of facial aging is dependent on your genes and the other 25 percent is based on environmental factors.
Is that good news or bad news for you?
‘Contemplation often makes life misterable. We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live.’
Warning: Not only is this newspaper-inspired nail art super cool, but it can potentially lead to getting tipsy.
Kelsey of the Tumblr ‘Quiet Time’ accepted the challenge to up her manicure skills with a written word design that has been popping up on many of our favorite beauty sites. And we love the creative idea of using the local paper than reading the most recent piece of breaking news.
The blogger perfected this print in just a few steps. First, she applied a neutral nail color like OPI Samoan Sand and allowed to dry. Then she dipped each fingernail into alcohol — we’d recommend using vodka for better results. Press a large strip of newspaper onto the top of each soaked nail. Remove slowly and finish with a glossy top coat to seal.
What do you think about this DIY nail art?
If you think your nail savvy skills could transfer into a career, consider taking the Manicuring Class at Rizzieri Aveda School starting on September 6th. Contact Admissions at 856-552-2270 for details.
It’s been said that eating certain foods together—think red wine with red meat, to neutralize toxins, or grilled chicken with coleslaw, to flush away carcinogens—may help ward off the negative effects of your less-than-healthy choices.
But according to celebrity nutritionist Paula Simpson, the theory only holds true if you’re eating in moderation and offsetting unhealthy helpings with antioxidant-rich foods. “Even if you do eat like this, you are still taking a risk in ingesting nutrient-depleted, toxic, processed foods,” she says. “If you do eat this way, the best thing you can do is balance the meal out with something healthy.”
Coconut water has been touted as the new sports drink. A natural alternative to beverages like VitaminWater and Powerade, the electrolyte-concentrated juice from green coconuts has been branded and bottled by multiple companies. ConsumerLab.com set out to discover if these drinks actually deliver. Their results found that it depends on the brand.
In their Coconut Waters Review, researchers tested three leading brands: O.N.E., Vita Coco and Zico. Testing the potassium, magnesium, sodium and sugar content of all three coconut waters, they discovered that only one of the three (Zico) contained the amount listed for all four ingredients.
Sugar and potassium amounts matched the labels for all of the waters. However, sodium and magnesium amounts were off for Vita Coco (82% lower) and O.N.E. (35% lower). It’s important to note that sodium and magnesium are the two nutrients central to hydration. With the hydration ability of coconut water being one of its main selling points, buyers should beware they may not be getting what they’re paying for.
The truth of the matter is, for average people doing average exercise—water is all that’s needed to the body post-workout. If you drink coconut water, purely for the taste and some added nutritional benefits, you don’t really have much to worry about.

Last weekend, reality TV star, Holly Madison, received the “Beautiful Humanitarian Award” at the Pro Beauty Association’s North American Hairstyling Awards in Las Vegas for her charitable work with organizations such as PETA and the Animal Foundation of Las Vegas. Lighting up the red carpet, with her bright blonde strands, Holly shared some of her own beauty secrets.
Surprisingly, Holly doesn’t rely on hairstylists as much as we think. “While I love the work professional hairstylists do, I really enjoy doing my own hair,” she says. “I want to learn how to do more updos and fancy styles to keep my look fresh.” Want to know the beauty secret behind her signature platinum locks? Hair serum. “I always put serum on my hair to keep it moisturized, shiny and smelling good. Then I usually throw it in a bun or ponytail for the day until I have to get more glammed up for work,” the blonde bombshell revealed.
Do you use hair serum? Which is your favorite?
I don’t know about you but when I choose to indulge during a meal, it’s usually while eating out. Most often, I save the fish and vegetables for at-home dining and leave the cheeseburgers and french-fries for restaurant meals. And apparently, I’m not alone. In general, people tend to make healthier choice while eating at home. But why?
A study published in the July American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that people tend to prepare healthier meals when they are in a good mood at home. In turn, they feel more emotionally rewarded and are more likely to stay on track—eating healthfully. People feel most content at home and the positive emotions associated with home-cooked meals might contribute to a healthy diet, researchers say.
The results are based on 160, white, non-obese females who reported their emotional states before and after eating a meal. Findings show that emotional factors may be able to cancel out our natural preference for fatty, sugary foods. The researchers say that factors like music, dining atmosphere and cooking equipment have all been able to induce positive feelings and may be vehicles to encourage healthy eating.
