Professional Makeup For Beginners
We, as land dwelling animals, still carry our own sea around inside us. The fluid in every one of our bodies cells has nearly the exact mineral content of the sea from which we came. Like a mini-ocean inside us, amazing. And the body will maintain this mineral makeup of it's cells fluids at all cost. Even sucking minerals from our bones and organs if the right amounts are not provided by our diets. Another reason to eat a mineral and vitamin rich diet, not empty processed white flour and sugar.
After a couple of months' practice your body will change noticeably and you will become stronger and healthier. When you are healthy your face will change. Your expression will contain more energy and your eyes will show more spirit, and so you will look younger. The condition of your skin improves as more natural oils are produced to nourish it. Even without creams and cosmetics your face will have a better colour and become smoother and softer.
Abnormal B cell activity may be the result of genetic (e.g. certain autoreactive B cells may be extremely sensitive to selected stimuli due to their genetic makeup) or mitogenic (e.g. either endogenous or exogenous mitogens stimulate the formation of autoantibodies) factors, but both depend upon the presence of self-reactive B cells. However, such cells are normally eliminated during foetal development their persistence results from the differences in tolerance induction in T and B cells. Self-antigens present in low concentrations may cause tolerance induction in T cells but fail to cause elimination of B cells which recognise them. These self-reactive B cells may be activated by substances that interact with them directly (e.g. T-independent antigens from bacteria and viruses) resulting in the production of autoantibodies. However, since such polyclonal stimulators usually induce the production of low-affinity IgM autoantibodies and the tissue damage seen in autoimmune diseases...
Angel et al11 performed the initial studies of the human collagenase promoter utilizing these techniques. By differential screening of cDNA libraries prepared from untreated cells and from cells treated with 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA, a strong, nonphysiologic tumor promoting agent and a protein kinase C agonist), they found that a short 5'-flanking fragment containing only 517 bp of the promoter DNA was sufficient to strongly enhance MMP-1 transcription. Deletional analyses of the promoter, along with CAT assays led to the discovery of an AP-1 enhancer element at -72 to -65 bp.11 In addition to the AP-1 site, these studies also identified the TATA box located at -32 bp. The core AP-1 sequence (also known as the TPA responsive element, TRE) is 5'-TGAGTCA-3', and the proteins that bind to this site are members of the Fos and Jun family of transcription fac-tors.60-63 The interaction of these proteins with the DNA is a highly complex process that is, ultimately, the...
Exposure to environmental chemicals, such as pesticides and heavy metals, may also disrupt the neuroendocrine-immune system, leading to upregulation of inflammatory signaling. Endocrine disruptors include dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls, DDT and other pesticides, and plasticizers such as phtha-lates and bisphenol A (BPA). Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products - including plastic bottles, metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, cosmetics, and pesticides and have been linked to insulin resistance. Exposure to BPA has been found to cause biological effects, and its mode of action appears to mimic that of the female hormone, estrogen. Studies have found that BPA does increase the risk of developing cancer 4 . Phthalates are another compound commonly found in cosmetics and personal care items such as shampoos. Phthalates are reported to also affect neuroendocrine-immune balance. A recent study reported that approximately...
Nickel is used in alloys in dental medicine (1) and implant materials (2). Various medical, surgical, and dental routines expose the body to metallic nickel. Exposure to nickel is not always readily traced. For example, it may be present in contaminated cosmetics (SEDA-12, 531) and it may be used in dialysis apparatus. Non-medical exposure is a well-recognized health risk in occupational medicine, but it also occurs after body-piercing although gold needles are generally used in body-piercing, cheap body-rings are often nickel-plated. Gold salts used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis may be contaminated by nickel, thus causing adverse effects not attributable to gold. Nickel (for example as nickel alloys) is also used in orthodontic and orthopedic appliances and in some prostheses.
The patient's change in vision places her or him at risk for injury. Teach the patient to scan the area for obstructions before she or he begins to walk. Remove any obstructions or rugs in the path between the patient's bed and the bathroom. Encourage the patient to wear well-fitting shoes or slippers when ambulating. The patient's impaired vision, intolerance to activity, and any lesions on the face may lead to a disturbance in self-concept or body image. Elicit from the patient her or his priorities for a good appearance and support those activities that the patient finds beneficial. Those activities may include extra hair care, using makeup, wearing clothing from home, maintaining a beard or moustache, or other similar grooming strategies. Help the patient maintain the highest level of activity that her or his disease allows. As with any chronic, debilitating disease with no cure, the patient is expected to have times of depression and anxiety. Use a supportive, non-judgmental...
A study focusing on mitochondria in rat liver showed an increase of the oxidative phosphorylation in the presence of chamomile extract in certain degrees of dilution 112 . ATP biosynthesis was activated simultaneously. The formation of active phosphates is only inhibited by doses that are not achieved in vivo 112 . With mitochondria from cavy liver it was shown that the creatine phosphate content increased time dependently and the amount of glucose-6-phosphate decreased 112 . A positive influence of chamomile components was observed on metabolic processes, providing energy and improving the regeneration of inflamed tissue. The use of chamomile extracts in dermatology and cosmetics gets some scientific justification through this (see also Chapter 2).
The in vivo models employed to predict clinical efficacy for carcinomas include rodent xenografts of human tumor cell lines implanted and grown subcutaneously in immunocompromised mice.23 The complications inherent in this strategy are numerous.24 The tumor cells are derived from human sources (the HeLa cell line originated from the cervical tumors of Henrietta Lacks, in 1951), but are then passaged through multiple generations in vitro. Consequently, the cells that survive over generations may mutate to possess different characteristics from the parent cells. In addition, the tumor types preferred for xenografts grow rapidly, in days or weeks, to enable a timely assessment of the compound's efficacy, but such rapidly growing tumors are not reflective of all human cancers. Finally, differences in rodent physiology relative to humans impact metabolism, exposure, and, ultimately, efficacy of the drugs. General toxicity is evaluated through decreases in the animals' total body weight...
According to the dictionary, aging is the process of becoming mature or old. It is, in essence, the passage of time and the accompanying bodily changes. Because the passage of time is inevitable, so, too, is aging, claims for the anti-aging properties of various diets, cosmetics, pills and skin care products to the contrary.
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, which means that the body mistakenly identifies some of its own tissues as foreign matter. The immune system begins to attack healthy cells and tissue, leading to redness, warmth, pain, and swelling. Researchers are still unsure exactly why children develop JRA. Scientists believe that there probably is something in the child's genetic makeup that makes her susceptible to JRA. Factors from the child's environment, such as a virus infection, may trigger the condition in a genetically susceptible child.
Scientists do not know why the streptococcus sometimes lives happily as part of the usual bacterial population and at other times causes streptococ-cal throat infection that can lead to rheumatic fever. Only about 1 percent of streptococcal infections lead to rheumatic fever. The genetic makeup of both the patient and the streptococcus seem to be important determinants of the type of infection and who goes on to develop rheumatic fever. Rheumatic
Immunologic Thimerosal, a mercuric derivative of thiosalicylic acid, is a preservative used in several types of consumer products, including cosmetics, ophthalmic and otolaryngo-logic medications, and vaccines. Of 574 patients those who were allergic to thimerosal were more likely to be allergic to bacitracin (19C).
Pharmacogenetics The terms pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics are often used interchangeably and describe an area of intense medical research that seeks to predict how an individual will respond to a drug based on his or her genetic makeup. This contrasts with most other medical uses of genetics that seek to find the genes that predispose people to develop a particular illness or to intervene in a disease by inserting modified genes (gene therapy).
Dyes Historically, adult female Mediterranean scales (Kermes iticies and K. vermilio), Oriental lac insects (Kerria lacca), central European scales (Porphyrophora polonica), and New World cochineal scales (Dactylopius coccus) were used in the preparation of red dye by a number of indigenous populations. Today, cochineal dye is the most important. It is obtained from an extract of the bodies of scale females found feeding on a cactus native to Mexico and Central America. The insects' bodies contain the pigment called carminic acid, which is effective in repelling potential predators such as ants. This substance is obtained by subjecting a mass of the crushed insects to steam or dry heat. Because 70,000 scale bodies are needed to produce a pound of cochineal, the dye is extremely expensive. Once commonly used as a scarlet-red mordant dye for wool and as a food coloring, cochineal has been largely replaced by synthetic products. It continues to be used as a coloring agent in cosmetics...
There has been increasing research in the role of herbs and spices as natural preservatives. As an example, ground black pepper has been found to reduce the lipid oxidation of cooked pork. Table 1.6 illustrates the range of antioxidants isolated from herbs and spices. Antioxidants also play a role in the body's defence against cardiovascular disease, certain (epithelial) cancers and other conditions such as arthritis and asthma. Phenolic compounds such as flavonoids may help to protect against cardiovascular disease and intestinal cancer (black pepper, oregano, thyme and marjoram). Gingerol in ginger is also an intestinal stimulant and promoter of the bioactivity of drugs. Capsaicin in chilli pepper is an effective counter-irritant used in both pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Fenugreek, onion and garlic help lower cholesterol levels. A number of spices have also been identified as having antimicrobial properties. Individual chapters in this book deal with research on the...
When combined with any other bladder medication, the effects of both drugs maybe intensified. As it can carry other substances directly into the blood, DMSO should not be applied to the skin where skin medications, cosmetics, lotions, bath oils, or soaps have already been applied.
Coeliac disease has a clearly described pathophysiology, with a wide range of symptoms and its own set of diagnostic tests. It results from a permanent sensitivity to gluten, a protein present in wheat and oats. This sensitivity is immunologically mediated (a Type IV reaction rather than the Type I, IgE-mediated reactions, which are much more commonly associated with food allergy). The sensitivity results in an enteropathy, the architecture of the wall of the small intestine is progressively distorted and inflamed and the bowel stops digesting and absorbing other foods efficiently. This is the cause of many of the symptoms, which are extremely varied. They include gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhoea and vomiting, or nutritional deficiencies leading to weight loss or failure to thrive in children. The behaviour of both children and adults can be affected and patients have been known to present with depression. Individuals with a particular genetic makeup, with the human...
Emus are raised commercially in the United States, Australia, Europe, and South Africa for their meat, skin, eggs, and feathers. Farmers in Australia often consider them agricultural pests. Emu oil is also being studied in the United States for its possible medical applications. It is used as an antiseptic, moisturizer, and anti-inflammatory agent. It is also found in eye creams, hair care products, and other cosmetics. Research indicates that emu oil promotes wound healing and may be effective in treating arthritis. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved its use for medical conditions.
Tenofovir Tenofovir is a nucleotide analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NtRTI). It is slightly different in makeup than nucleoside reverse tran-scriptase inhibitors (NRTI). Tenofovir is the first NtRTI that has been approved for the treatment of HIV. It was approved in October 2001. One major difference is that tenofovir is metabolized by the kidney. So it does not affect the liver's ability to metabolize other drugs.
Phytosterols found in plants have many applications as food additives and in medicine and cosmetics. Ergosterol is a component of fungal cell membranes, serving the same function that cholesterol serves in animal cells. The presence of ergosterol in fungal cell membranes coupled with its absence from animal cell membranes makes it a useful target for antifungal drugs. Ergosterol is also used as a fluidizer in the cell membranes of some protists, such as trypanosomes. This explains the use of some antifungal agents against West African sleeping sickness.
In the one animal antitumor study conducted, oral doses of sesquiterpene lactones (at 10 mg kg) extracted from the related plant Parthenium hysterophorus markedly increased the life span and reduced tumor size in leukemia-bearing mice.134 Given what we know about the makeup of P. hysterophorus, it is likely that parthenolide was a primary constituent in the extract. The equivalent human dose is about 96 milligrams per day of lactones.
Silicone is ubiquitous in our environment. Individual exposure occurs through contact with needles, syringes, medications (insulin, simethicone), lipstick, creams, cosmetics, and implantable devices, such as pacemakers, joint replacements, defibrillators, shunts, stents, and implants.29 Extensive research undertaken since the FDA-directed silicone breast implant moratorium in 1992 has confirmed that implantable medical grade silicone is among the least bioreactive, most inert substances available for implantation.30-32 Studies have failed to show linkage between connective tissue disease and silicone gel implants. The silicone elastomer shell and gel of breast implants, however, like all implanted devices, will trigger
Burning, stinging, and especially itching sensations are among the most common consumer complaints from cosmetics and topical drugs. The rapid-onset and high-level antiirritant potency of strontium salts suggest that they will have broad applications in topical products. Throughout the world, cosmetic products are used daily to cleanse and beautify the skin. With the discovery of new, potent, biologically active ingredients, formulators can provide consumers with increased benefit that may resemble that obtained from pharmaceutical products. Unfortunately, irritation frequently accompanies the use of higher concentrations of active ingredients or more potent skin-delivery systems. For people with sensitive skin attributable to inherently dry skin or other causes, the problem is further compounded. In addition to products intentionally applied to the skin, many workers are exposed to chemical irritants in the workplace that can result in considerable occupational disability 37-39 .
Your body often turns the breast into a collecting station for toxic wastes that have been drawn downward from the top of your body. From your head where shampoo and hair spray and cosmetics leave their daily deposits, from your dentalware with its constant supply of heavy metals, from neck and armpits where cologne, deodorant and soap leave their toxic residues. The lymph nodes under the armpit and the region above the
