9 Top Uses For Excel in a Beauty Salon

Holistic Beauty – An Overview

Beauty lies deep under your skin – that’s what we have heard our mothers say, most of you would agree that in this fast-paced world there is no scope for the ancient oatmeal scrubs and skin-firming packs made with rye bread and egg yolks. We prefer to have everything packed and delivered; from food to beauty and skin care products. Making these home-made scrubs is considered a big chore these days and nobody wants to do it.

We are living in the age of face-lifts and Botox, though there is a sizable proportion of the human race, which believes in the idea of stress-free living, healing and beauty. Most of us have made a transition and nowadays we are dependent on the dermatologist for the latest range of enzymes, peptides, nano-particles and skin vitamins. With all these essential ingredients within our reach, shouldn’t we have youthful and glowing skin without a single sign of wrinkle, age spot or blemish? Do we still need to pay attention to our diet, sleep

The Real Problem With The Media’s Beauty Standards

Finally, it looks like significant change is happening in the corporate media. No longer are only ultra-thin women meeting its previously very rigid beauty standard – or what it’s really been – an acceptability standard for women.

Women with actual fat on their body (gasp!) are now increasingly represented in mainstream television and even glossy magazines. Not only are they appearing, they are being presented as examples of great beauty.

Sports Illustrated featured on its cover the gorgeous model Ashley Graham in 2016, which made international news because she is by traditional media standards about 70 pounds overweight.

Graham is now going to be a judge on the panel for the show “America’s Next Top Model” with Tyra Banks.

The popular HBO show “Girls” made headlines over the past few years because it revealed actual cellulite on one of the stars of the show. Glamour magazine followed suit by displayi

Beauty of Nature

What is nature? = Science wants to understand nature. Therefore it is important, how the word nature is defined: Nature is everything that was not made by man. So the definition of nature excludes all things that were introduced by mankind. All those human developments are summarized as culture.

Nature keeps changing from season to season, from minute to minute. If the sea was a bright blue in the morning, by noon it has become an emerald green hue. The color of the sky keep changing throughout the day, from the pale pink at dawn to a dazzling blue at mid morning and a bright orange by sunset and purple at twilight. Nature reflects our moods. When the sun shines, we feel happy and hopeful.

We have all learned that Nature is man’s best friend. The sunset and sunrise, the song of birds, their evening gatherings, the breeze that sways trees and the winds that blow your mind away… it’s all nature and beauty divine. Nature is everywhere and not just in res

Cleopatra’s Bag of Tricks: The Love and Beauty Secrets of Antiquity’s Women

Speed dating or online matchmaking-these may be the latest romantic trends, but the artistry of love is ancient and the desire for beauty is something altogether primitive. Searching for a mate or attempting to seduce a partner was once the work of potions and charms, animal sacrifices and amulets. While many of the old rituals may seem wildly out of step for contemporary women, there are many ancient practices that may very well initiate attraction and captivate a partner today.

Asses’ milk is not a hot commodity in the present era, but once upon the time it was an elixir by which to preserve youth and beauty.

A History of Ludwig Drums and the Ludwig Black Beauty Snare

Ludwig & Ludwig, the home of the Ludwig Black Beauty snare, was formed in 1909 by brothers William F. and Theo Ludwig. The brothers began their innovative designing in a simple Chicago garage, with their first innovation being a bass drum pedal that was faster and far superior to anything available at the time.

In 1916 the brothers came up with the spring action that was to become the basis for the current Balanced Action Pedal Timpani.

Drum Company, with the famous Speed King Pedal being one of the first products designed, which is still manufactured by Ludwig today.

Ludwig was purchased back from Conn in 19

Unfortunately, in the real fashion world, it is all about the product and selling the product. Although fashion and runway models do need to have specific aesthetic qualities and certain skills, their main purpose is to make a product look good, excite the customer and make them want to buy.
