Joey Joy knows that art is in his blood. Growing up in Collingswood as the son of a hairdresser and a musician, a career focusing on creativity was his destiny. Now, as the Creative Director for Rizzieri Aveda School, after working with the Rizzieri organization since 1995, he still loves the salon atmosphere.
A position as the Creative Director can be mentally challenging. Joey says, because your talking all day long. From giving students advice to working with the instructors, there really isn’t down time. Getting home and taking the time to “chill” is really important so that he can continue to give it his all each and every day, Joey says.
When students and or clients love how much you put into helping them love school or their hair, it becomes all worth it. In fact, Joey realized his influence when he received his first letter of thanks for being a student’s inspiration years ago. He continues to strive to inspire others to create beauty. Joey’s favorite part about his position is his co-workers, “They are a great group of people, and we are really lucky to be able to have fun at work.”
Joey would tell potential students that are thinking about beginning a career in beauty and wellness that they should take advantage of all of the information that the teachers have to offer. This is the beginning of a great career! Joey currently is married to a hairdresser and is a Dad to three awesome (and adorable) kids.

Statistics show that many of us don’t get a good amount of vitamin D, which can be partially blamed on a healthy habit: wearing sunscreen. It blocks vitamin D as it defends you from sun damage.
However, help may be on the way in the form of a new ingredient that could eventually replace common UV filters found in creams and cosmetics.
According to an article in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, researchers found that an ingredient called Uniprotect PT-3 protected against oxidative and UV damage at a level comparable to that of an SPF 20 formula, but it allowed for the production of vitamin D in the skin at the same time.
It may be a while before we see this technology permeate products, so until it’s available, you should continue wearing traditional sunscreen and seek out vitamin D in healthy foods and supplements.

Emilie is pictured above providing a hand and arm massage to a guest.
Emilie Hartman was living in Miami Beach a few years ago when she began to experience adult acne. An inspiring visit to a dermatologist cleared up her skin, but also gave her confidence to pursue a career in Esthetics. Emilie always knew that she enjoyed making others feel confident and beautiful and with her gregarious nature and genuine concern for others. She knew that she would make an excellent practictioner of esthetics.
Choosing Rizzieri was an easy decision for Emilie after getting a great recommendation from a friend who had recently completed the course. She knew that Rizzieri’s excellent reputation and helpful staff would lead her to success in her new career. Starting a full time skin care program in October, Emilie enjoys the structure that being a student at Rizzieri gives her.
She has found a blissful balance between school, work, and a social life – learning time management skills amongst others. Following graduation, Emilie plans to work in a clinical setting – providing support to a medical team or comprehensive care to patients or clients. Emilie would ‘without a doubt’ recommend Rizzieri to family and friends. She wishes everyone would be given the opportunity to experience the education that she is by knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient instructors. Being surrounded by a group of beatiful, diverse, and talented women will be one of Emilie’s most memorable moments from the program.

Magnets Might Help Hair Growth
So many people want to know how they can help their hair grow, whether they are trying to grow their hair out, or suffering from hair loss. NewBeauty had an interesting article about how magnets might help your hair grow.
“Believed to possess both anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties, magnets have been an alternative medical mainstay for treating pain since ancient times—and some experts say that they may provide beauty benefits as well. Basically, they aren’t only good for hanging little Susie’s preschool masterpiece on the fridge.
Besides potential anti-aging benefits for the skin, they could also help with aging hair. Research suggests that human growth hormone (a controlling factor behind the production of hair, skin and muscle mass), which is produced by the hypothalamus as we sleep, is strongly influenced by melatonin levels, which can be effected by magnets.
“The pineal gland in the center of our head controls hormones, enzymes and immune functions. It is sensitive to magnetic energy and produces the sleep hormone melatonin almost entirely during the night,” explains Szilvia Hickman, senior vice president of Szep Elet, distributor of ilike Organic Skin Care. “As we age, we produce less of these hormones, so it may be no exaggeration to say that magnetic stimulation of the pineal gland could slow the aging process. Many experiences healthier hair and skin as a result of magnetic therapy, and some even show signs of their hair returning to its normal color.”

Make time for Tea! Regular tea drinking could boost your immune system. Black, green and oolong teas all contain the bacteria-fighting chemical L-theanine, which can protect against colds.
Tea is “a plant-based beverage,” says Jeffrey Blumberg, Ph.D., a Tufts University professor of nutrition. “You put those leaves in water and you heat them up and what you’re doing is extracting these phytonutrients that are very similar to those that you find in fruits and vegetables.
Phytochemicals are natural substances found in fruits and vegetables that are believed to benefit health and reduce the risk of disease.
When you hear about the health benefits of tea, it’s often those phytochemicals that get the credit. Tea has been linked to everything from lower risk for osteoporosis to lower incidence of halitosis (bad breath), but more research is needed for definitive proof.

You’ve heard about how stress is taking it’s toll on your blood pressure, but did you know it affects your looks as well? Fortunately, you can counteract the effects of stress with some simple lifestyle changes.
When you get stressed out, your body starts producing more of the hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol can act like toxins and cause the sebaceous glands to go into overdrive, leading to inflammation, weight gain, free-radical formation and acne.vNews reporters have even begun to question if stress is turning President Barack Obama’s hair gray. Plus, there’s that cranky mood you just can seem to shake.
To combat stress internally and externally, try these steps:
• Get enough sleep. Aim for six to eight hours every night to help boost cell renewal.
• Just breath. A few calming breaths will help to put things into perspective and trigger relaxation cues that you vitally need.
• Fight off inflammation by eating a diet rich in antioxidants, especially brightly colored fruits and vegetables and heart-healthy fats like avocados, nuts and olive oil.
• Opt for products that target stress-induced beauty issues, like anti-stress oils.
