Organic Skin Care and Cosmetics?

An organic revolution is taking place in homes and business around the world. Organic products account for over $64 billion dollars spent worldwide annually. In Canada, over $3.7 billion dollars were spent on organics in 2012 alone.

But what does organic really mean?
How can consumers make informed decisions and separate fact from greenwashing—a practice that cares only about the bottom line?

Directed by award-winning Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta (I’ll Follow You DownSiddharth) with executive producer Moses Znaimer and Produced by Toronto’s Sixteen Films Ltd., the new documentary series Organic Panic tackles all sides of the raging organics debate. Over the course of 5 episodes, Organic Panic pits organic “Believers” against organic “Skeptics” in a battle to win the hearts and minds of concerned global citizens.

Do Your Best, Do What it Takes and You Will Succeed

Do Your Best Every Day

Make a conscious decision to do your best in everything and you will you attempt that will help you to reach the heights of success. As the old saying goes:

How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything

Always do more than you’re supposed to do. Do a little more than average and from that point on your progress will multiply itself out of all proportion according to the effort you put in. Just do a little more each day than you think you can do. There is always a best way of doing things to get the job done. Think about it before you do it. Strategize. True success comes from being successful in the little things.

Your Attitude Matters

You can respond positively or negatively to any situation. Your attitude is not determined by circumstances, but by how you respond to your circumstances. Any challenge facing you is not as important as your attitude towards it. It’s how you react to challenges and events that determines your attitude.

Is The Glass Half Full Or Half Empty?

There is a good side to every situation.

View your problems as opportunities. You cannot have success without any failures. Any experience can be transformed into something of value. Everything depends on the way you look at things. What are stumbling blocks and defeat before they can be stepping stones to victory if you remain determined. In every adversity lies the seed of advancement, growth and success. In every defeat there is a lesson showing you how to win the next time.

The glass is half full.


Courage is the power to face your difficulties. It comes from the reserves of your mind that are more powerful then any of your outside circumstances. When you recognize that you are bigger than your problems, you gain the courage necessary to overcome anything. Your obstacles will look large or small to you, depending if the glass is half full or half empty.

Courage gives you the ability to rise above reality.

You can decide to be bigger than your problem and overcome them.

Own It – No Matter What

It’s time to silence that voice inside your head that says you’re not good enough.

It’s time to start making positive, healthy choices and focus on the things we can change instead of the things we can’t. Most women hate some part of their bodies, but there’s nothing you can do about it, so own it, be proud of it. Dress in a way that hides your imperfections, but be proud of who you are and know that you are not alone.

It’s time for a change, it’s time to Own It*.

Did you know that 97% of women have at least one “I hate my body” moment every day?

Do YOU Have a Vision?

Create a Visual Vision Like a King!

You’ve heard Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s incredible I Have a Dream speech (or, at least, part of it).

What’s amazing is that 250,000 people from across the country descended on the Mall in Washington, D.C., on August 28, 1963, to hear Dr. King deliver that historic speech. There was no World Wide Web to check the date or social media blasts to rally the crowd, yet 250,000 showed up at the right place and the right time. How is that possible?

They walked, took the bus, or drove to Washington D.C. because they believed what Dr. King believed. They made the trek because Dr. King painted a vision of an America that was far better than what it was like in 1963 and one that they individually believed in.

Visions Must Have Substance

You see, a vision is an image in your mind of a world that does not yet exist. In order for the vision to be strong enough to overcome adversity, it must contain tangible results of what the world would look like if you spent your time in pursuit of your purpose…

Ultimate Facial Rejuvenation Starts With The Right Products

Let Us Take Years Off Your Face

No fluff, no hype, just visible results after one facial treatment with ultrasound.

A unique, luxurious facial that is gentle, yet an intense anti wrinkle facial treatment that is designed to slow down aging and prevent pre-mature aging. Geared to speed up cell renewal, even skin tone, increased collagen production and tissue regeneration. Proven results. Recommended for all skin types to prevent and delay aging. You will love the visible results after one facial treatment.

We carry the LUMINESCE skin care line that is made with stem cell technology. Give these world class products by Jeunesse a try.

What I love about this skin care line is that it is different from any other “anti-aging” skin care line. It is NOT plant based. With over 250 growth factors from adult human stem cells, it communicates to our skin how to heal and repair itself. That is why a 25 year old, 50 year old and 80 year old person gets amazing results. The growth factors communicate to the skin what it needs to do to heal and restore itself. The serum was originally developed for burn victims to help them literally GROW new skin. The important fact here is to understand that we are not plant based, but we are human. Stem cells from plant sources do not reach as deep into the cells as stem cells from human fat tissue. Let’s give our bodies and skin what it truly needs to heal, and to look it’s best.

The cleanser is gentle and deep cleanses the pores. the day cream has an SPF 30 and does the
job without having to add more sunscreen. The night moisturizer has a very subtle, beautiful scent,
is not too heavy, and restores the skin at night on the cellular level where it is most effective. The
ultimate lifting peel off mask not only lifts and firms the muscles, but also cleans and shrinks the pores and
removes blackheads while moisturizing the skin, leaving the skin super hydrated and with a healthy glow.

Our facial treatments are suitable for all skin types and are customized to the unique needs of each person, providing healthier looking skin with a fresh, new glow. Our most popular facial is the ultimate anti-aging lifting facial. It includes deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, a peel, a gentle mask, ultrasonic treatments and more to smooth out wrinkles and to firm and lift the skin.

These beauty treatments are customized facial treatments to combat any number of skin problems from wrinkles to acne, blemishes and breakouts to dry, sensitive skin or combination skin. We can successfully treat oily skin, blotchiness, redness, hyper-pigmentation and rosacea.

When It Comes To Alcohol – ZERO Matters

Rethink Your Drinking

If a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, it will reach her unborn baby. A woman’s use of alcohol while pregnant may affect the developing baby and cause a range of mental and physical difficulties.

During pregnancy there is: No safe time to drink aicohol. Most organ growth is completed a few weeks after the first three months. Brain growth continues during pregnancy and after birth. Exposure to alcohol anytime during pregnancy can affect the baby’s brain.

No safe type of alcohol. All types of aicohol may be harmful to the growing baby.

No safe amount. A safe amount of alcohol  in pregnancy is not known. It is never too late to stop drinking. Binge drinking and heavy drinking are very harmful to an unborn baby. If you are concerned about the amount of alcohol you drank before knowing you were pregnant, talk with your health-care provider or call Motherisk (1-877-FAS-INFO). The call is confidential.

If a woman is having trouble not drinking alcohol, help is available. Your local public health unit will have information on supports.

If a woman is pregnant or planning to be, the safest choice is to not drink any alcohol. The best time to stop drinking is before a woman gets pregnant.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

FASD is a term to describe the full range of harm that can result from drinking alcohol during pregnancy. FASD is preventable. There is no cure for FASD; it lasts a lifetime. There are supports for parents and children affected by FASD.

  • Signs of FASD may include:
  • Learning difficulties Vision or hearing problems
  • Poor memory
  • Behaviour problems
  • Slow physical growth
  • Heart, kidney or bone problems

The amount of alcohol it takes to harm a baby is unknown.
Alcohol reaches the unborn baby through the mother’s bloodstream.
The harms that may result depend on the amount, pattern and timing of consumption as well as the woman’s overall health.

Q: Does drinking by the biological father affect his unborn baby?
A: If a biological father drinks alcohol, it will not have an effect at the time of conception and does not affect the unborn child yet; he should try to be as healthy as possible before conception. A father or partner can support a woman’s choice not to drink when pregnant or when trying to get pregnant by not drinking.

Q: I’m not pregnant but my drinking worries me.
A: Talk to your health-care provider or go online to assess your drinking.

Q: I’m worried I can’t stop drinking on my own.
A: You are not alone. Support is available.

For more information, contact your health care provider or speak to a public health nurse.

True Beauty Is Timeless

Ari Seth Cohen, photographer and self-proclaimed ’old lady expert’, appreciates ’advanced’ beauty.

He finds his models — elegant older ladies — on the streets of New York. The youngest of them is 59 and the oldest is 102 years old. They know that true beauty is timeless, and taste and style only get more sophisticated over the years.

These women don’t hide their age, don’t dye their gray hair or waste money on plastic surgery. They go through life with their heads held high, and it’s hard to look away.

The Danger of Parabens

Parabens have been used for almost 70 years and may actually be harmful to our health.

Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in personal care products, because they stop fungus, bacteria and other microbes from growing in your creams, makeup, cosmetics, mascaras, shaving gels, personal lubricants, spray tanning solutions, toothpastes, pharmaceutical products, especially in the bathroom where it’s moist and warm. They are also used as food additives.

Parabens are chemicals with estrogen-like properties, and estrogen is one of the hormones involved in the development of breast cancer.

Here are some of the names Parabens are called.

Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, E216

One concern is that the estrogen-mimicking aspect of parabens may be a factor in the increase of early puberty in girls.

Some of the questions are:

Is the rising of breast cancer partly linked to  parabens. which can to an extend  mimic estrogen?

Are declining sperm counts and the increase of male breast cancer and testicular cancer related to the fact that these chemicals can be absorbed into our skin, and can potentially disrupt our endocrine systems?

Better be safe than sorry, read the labels on the stuff you buy!

As for me, I don’t want to use any products that contain any kind of parabens.
