Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program
The Help is about a young white woman in the early 1960s in Mississippi who becomes interested in the plight of the black ladies' maids that every family has working for them. She writes their stories about mistreatment, abuse and heartbreaks of working in white families' homes, all just before the Civil Rights revolution. That is the story in a nutshell - but it is so much more than just stories. ....

Sweat Injections with botulinum toxin

Using local injections of botulinum toxin to alleviate the symptoms of hyperhidrosis is a promising approach. Research has shown that treating the armpits, hands, feet, and face with botulinum toxin is safe and effective. In one clinical study involving 322 patients with severe underarm sweating, 81% of the patients receiving botulinum toxin injections achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating. And, 50% of the patients had their excessive sweating relieved for at least 201 days (nearly 7 months).

A Natural Alternative to Anti-Wrinkle Injections

had the most interesting facial recently that I feel I must share with you gorgeous readers. I HIGHLY recommend doing it the day of or before a special event. It’s called an “Atoxelene infusion” and it’s a natural alternative to anti-wrinkle injections. HOLLER! In just one quick and relaxing treatment, expression lines and wrinkles appear visibly reduced, skin looks firmer, smoother, and tighter. My lips even looked a little more plump!


If you go to the companies website www.intraceuticals.com you can find a person near you that gives the treatments. They will come to you!

I recommend doing it on your wedding day and you and all your bridesmaids could get it done together (bridesmaid gift perhaps).FOREVER YOUNG!

A New Strategy To Escape From Expression Lines

Modulation of the contraction mechanism is the safest and most reliable cosmetic solution to attenuate expression lines, a type of wrinkle that starts to appear in people’s early thirties. Expression lines result from natural facial expressions like smiling or blinking.


This webinar will give you an integral overview of Lipotec’s latest improvements in this field. A continuous research currently focused on a post-synaptic pathway that offers, along with the pre-synaptic approach, a wide range of science-based actives designed to target different parts of muscle contraction along the Neuromuscular Junction, the synapse involving the nerve and the muscle.

Molecular actives that, by independent mechanism, lead to the muscle relaxation required to attenuate expression wrinkles. Dr. Juan Cebrián received his PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Barcelona in 2003, following a scientific background at C.S.I.C (Superior Council of Scientific Research), where he specialized in peptides, proteins and liposomes. In 2011 appointed Chief Science Officer, at the head of Innovation and Development of new actives for cosmetic applications, from the design to the launch.

Botox is not an effective neck pain treatment

Last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Botox as a treatment for chronic migraines. However, the anti-wrinkle drug isn’t as effective in treating head and neck pains, according to studies.


Merck Research Laboratories reviewed nine studies, which involved more than 500 participants. The researchers found that there was little difference between Botox and placebo injections.

While Botox has been proven to be effective for some medical applications, there wasn’t sufficient evidence to prove its effect on neck pains.
