Skin Tightener ST – What is This Innovative Approach to Anti-Aging Skin?

The Skin Tightener ST is an innovative new technology for non-invasive skin remodeling and skin tightening therapy. The Skin Tightener works by stimulating the growth of collagen to reduce wrinkles and the affect of aging on skin.

Collagen is the natural substance that gives human skin its soft, full, youthful appearance. The human body produces collagen from birth, producing less and less collagen until in the late 40’s when production essentially stops in the body.

The body also produces a natural enzyme known as collagenase, which breaks down collagen. This lack of collagen in later life leads to the start of lines, wrinkles, and a generally tired, sagging appearance that occurs during aging. Skin Tightener ST Therapy works to cause new collagen production, helping to create a younger, more vital appearance to the skin.

Skin Tightener ST is the only aid of its type to create an instantaneous outcome, and follows with progressive benefits and improvement

An Architect’s Opinion About Durability, Utility and Beauty

An architect needs to maintain a delicate balance of durability, utility and beauty when working on a building. These elements need to mix seamlessly together to make something that will endure well for many years.

One part of durability is about having timelessness to a building. Timelessness is something an architect always strives for. It is important not to look back on at a building and think, “That was the style or image that everybody wanted back in 2010.” An architect wants to look back at a building and think, “It still stands on its own even if it was designed 10 years ago. If something like that was designed today, it would have the same impact as it did 10 years ago.” Many times, durability means having something that stands on its own after a long time.

Durability also means thinking about how to help clients maintain the project after it is completed. This is a conversation that an architect needs to have with every client. Every

Confessions of an Overweight Adult

“I’ve pretty much been ‘heavy set’ my entire life although I prefer the term fat! I mean, really, let’s call it what it is. You can mask it all different ways but it’s all fat! Fat is the last bastion of legal prejudice. See, people can still use your size to ‘keep you out.’ For example: Potential employers can not hire you saying you are a health risk. Airlines can charge you for 2 seats. And lastly, people feel free to just say whatever they want under the guise of “it’s for your own good.” So what kinds of things are for your own good? Let me give you a list of things I’ve found offensive:

• You have such a pretty face… (it means: you COULD be really pretty if you matched an ideal!)

• Have you thought about going on a diet? (Every fat person is aware of their size. They don’t need to be reminded. And, guess what, sometimes their weight has nothing to do with diet. Many kind

Gingivitis (gum disease), and the advanced stage, periodontitis, is one of the most common infections of the mouth and more prevalent than the common cold. The symptoms include bleeding gums or pus between the teeth.

The early warning signs of heart disease are less obvious than those that indicate there is a problem with your gum’s. Now, doctors have to manage one disease in hopes of reducing the risk that could occur in the other.

How to Stop Eating by Experiencing Enough

Do you ever have the sense that you just can’t quit eating? That there is never enough? That you are a bottomless pit? These experiences are an opportunity to look deeper, to find out what may be going on behind it.

Don’t blame your food or weight. Allow yourself to look deeper. You may discover that this sense of not getting enough permeates your life.

You may find you live life from an inner sense of poverty, a deep down sense of lack that virtually guarantees no amount of food will satisfy you. That no amount of friends, sex, clothes, or money will satisfy you.

When you look closer, you may find that feeling deprived of food today can be based on a very real experience of having been deprived in the past.

Consider a child who couldn’t get enough of her mother’s love. There is nothing the child can do about this. But as an adult, she is in control of how much food she could eat. So she eats more to make up for not having had enou

Understand the Relationship Between Melanin and Hair Loss

Melanin is the pigment that gives hair its natural colour. The colour of hair is under the control of genetics. Genes and hormones control the action of melanocytes. Melanocytes are located at the base of the hair follicle where growth of new hairs starts during the anagen phase (growth phase) of the hair cycle. Melanin is only produced during anagen phase and will be switched off in the catagen and telogen phases (degradation and rest phases respectively). With age, the activity of melanocytes begin to decline and hair tends to start greying and turns white as sign of the absence of colouring by melanin.

There are several factors that can affect the production of melanin as well as causing hair loss. There exists a relationship between melanin and hair loss. There are some vitamins, particularly the b-vitamins, which are involved in the synthesis of melanin as well as maintaining the proper function of hair follicles. If such vitamins are deficient, hair starts to grey and t

Home Health Aide Training – Complex Modified Diets

Oftentimes, as a home health care aide, your job will include helping a patient to prepare food. While the standard rules of food preparation do apply for most of your patients (i.e. following the Food Pyramid), there are also a large number of different modified diets, some of them quite complex that you may need to follow. Here’s what you need to know:

Increasing or Decreasing Intake of Certain Foods

The most common type of modified diet simply requires either an increase or a decrease in the intake of certain kinds of foods. For example, a patient suffering from chronic high blood pressure may be advised to decrease the amount of sodium in the diet. This would entail more than leaving the salt shaker in the cupboard. You also need to check the nutrition information on all prepared foods for the total sodium content that they include.

Other times there may be a need to increase intake of certain foods. For example, some patients may nee
