When we are young, we don’t worry about how the environment blasts our skin on a daily basis. Even if we have a kindly mother who encourages (or hounds) us to take good care of our skin, let’s face it, most of us don’t listen.

The Egyptians stored their healing solutions in blue or gold glass containers. It wasn’t until the development of preservatives that using Miron jars fell out of favor. Now that we’re aware of how harmful all those preservatives are to our health, these violet jars are again enjoying popularity. [Read more…]
It’s no secret technology is becoming more ingrained in our lives every day. We don’t always notice it, but when there’s an interruption, we quickly realize just how much technology dependence we really have. For example, have you ever been at work when the internet in your office has gone out for an extended period? If so, you probably found it difficult to conduct many of the essential functions of your job. [Read more…]
