3. Help convincing parents to let me get a navel ring?

You know, your parents might be right also about you being too young. Because depending on where you live, the age is 18 to get pierced without parental consent. I wanted my navel pierced when I was 16 also, and my parents said no. So I was upset for a while. And one I turned 18, I got it done. And Nooo, my parents do not know about it. I am 18, and they will still kill me if they see it! So you might just have to wait it out until you can get it on your own. Or, you can just keep trying and asking them, maybe ask for it as your birthday present, they might go for it. And if they said people wo not see it, you can say that you want it just for you. Piercing is beauty. It is an art

5. Paying a Premium For "Natural" Products? Here's What You Should Be Looking For Instead

You know that skin is the largest organ, but did you know that it actually absorbs 60 to 70 percent of whatever we put on it? That fact recently got me thinking about the numerous chemicals I slather on every day in the name of self-care, and whether I was actually harming myself by not being more meticulous about the ingredients in my products. A 2004 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 97 percent of participants had been exposed to phthalates, a chemical that is very commonly found in skincare products. This is alarming because research has shown reproductive system disruptions in laboratory animals with high levels of phthalates. Additionally, the Environmental Working Group found that tons of American beauty and skincare products contained carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, endocrine disruptors, plasticizers, degreasers, and surfactants - many of which are banned in Europe and Asia. So as we consumers become more aware about the importance of the ingredients found in skincare products, it's not uncommon to see more and more items touting their "all-natural" ingredients. But does "natural" mean the same as "organic" when it comes to beauty? And are there federal regulations monitoring these label claims? In order to navigate the confusing world of organic and natural skincare products, we talked to some experts for clarity. Dr. Ebru Karpuzoglu, MSc., PhD, and founder of natural skincare brand AveSeena, spoke with me about the term "natural" on product labels. "Calling a beauty product natural legally means nothing," she said. "It's an unregulated term because the FDA, USDA, or EU do not have any regulations or standards on the term. Since there is no regulation on the 'natural' term, anyone can just use one or two natural ingredients in a product and call it natural. If you see the natural ingredients only at the end of the product's ingredient list, that means it's hardly natural." In fact, a product labeled as "natural" can mean that there is at least one natural ingredient but can also be saturated with harmful chemicals. So what should we look for when trying to buy skincare products that are not harmful? Well, for starters, do not pay extra for anything that is listed as organic or natural because the FDA does not regulate this. Also, do not hesitate to look up an unfamiliar ingredient before purchasing, especially those that are hard to pronounce. According to Mariska Nicholson, a natural skincare expert and founder of Olive M, "The story of a natural skincare line starts with what is not in the product. As you research the best natural skincare products, it's important to look for these qualifiers:

The Craziest Ces Booth Threatened Me with Chainsaws and Soldiers
The Craziest Ces Booth Threatened Me with Chainsaws and Soldiers
I'm blindfolded, my nerves tingling as the sound of a chainsaw approaches, the gas fumes wafting up my nose as it gets closer. The chainsaw passes by, and moments later I hear a woman scream.The blindfolds come off, and I'm staring at a woman who says, "I am here of my own free will," before downing a vial of pink liquid. Laser-like sounds blare as a number of colors flash, and then it goes blue as everything is silent and she retreats into a dead stare. (You can see the videohere.) A mad scientist wearing a long white lab coat barks, "Nothing will be the same after this." Trending News Google Cloud Outage Missing Connecticut Mom Virginia Beach Shooting Protester Interrupts Harris Would you believe this is a booth for smart beauty care products? TVs and voice assistants rule the biggest days at CESCES 2018: Complete coverage of the world's biggest technology show from CNETCESis known for the eye-popping spectacles likemodular televisionsorgiant racing mechs, but this booth -- which less a show exhibit and more stage performance -- takes things to a whole new level. It made for one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had at a CES. Withroughly 184,000 attendees and more than 4,000 exhibitors, sometimes it's worth taking that extra step to stand out. Health and auto tech dominate CES 2018 The culprit behind this madness: A Swedish beauty care company called Foreo, which pitches itself as a "smart" beauty care brand (and who isn't smart at this show?). The not-so-subtle message was this dystopian vision was analogous to how beauty care products are developed by its old-fashioned and established rivals, and that Foreo represented something new and different."This is not the traditional beauty booth with white chairs," said Trisha Mendiola, head of strategy and programming in the Americas for Foreo.Regardless of the message, I had to applaud the stage craft.Unless you knew the brand ahead of time -- and I didn't -- Foreo masterfully built up the suspense. The entire booth is fenced off, with numerous warning signs and employees in military fatigues and body armor patrolling the entrance. Curious, I asked one of the "guards" what this was. He said I would only find out if I went inside. So I took one of his blindfolds and joined a line of other convention-goers. Minutes later, he barked at us to put on the blindfolds, and I marched into the booth.As we walked forward, heat blasted on one side (that was supposed to represent one of the skin care treatments --I think). When we took out blindfolds off, we were greeted by the scientist and three people, or test subjects, wearing yellow sheets. Their faces were covered in saran wrap. The scientists ranted, and each of the three test subjects took turns drinking the liquid. The second one protested, it led to the chainsaw and screaming. CES 2018 trends: Augmented reality and flexible screens At one point, one of the visitors used flashed photography (warning signs said that was a no no) and an armored guard dragged him out. He was later brought back in -- wearing the yellow sheet and saran wrap -- and repeated the same ritual of drinking the pink liquid (of his own free will, of course). The whole proceeding had me questioning where I was and what the heck this was all about. It wasn't until the end when I filed out near the exit that I found out Foreo was hawking beauty products, like a 20-second mask that's supposed to replace a 20-minute facial mask for skin care. It's onKickstarter, having raised $375,000, or 19 times its goal of $20,000. And like everything else at CES, it's connected to an app.To be honest, getting confirmation that this was ultimately a pitch about a product, and not some statement on horrors of tech, felt like a bit of a let down.But hey, I'm writing about beauty care products, so clearly Foreo got the best of me.CES 2018: Complete coverage of the world's biggest technology show from CNET.This article originally appeared on CNET.

If I Started a Petition for Disney to Release Beauty and Beast Early, Who Would Take a Stand?
If I Started a Petition for Disney to Release Beauty and Beast Early, Who Would Take a Stand?
YEA RIGHT..... Disney will never let that happen..... T1. What is the Beast's real name from Beauty and The Beast?It's supposed to be Adam2. Getting married. Beauty and the beast?that is such a cute and romantic idea!!3. Beauty and the Beast TV show....? 10 points to best answer....?I love the series, do not know where you can watch it free, but I have been buying the season's on eBay, and amazon! they are worth every dime!!!4. Why does the man turn into a beast in beauty and the beast?it depends on what version you are looking for, because they are all slightly different. However, they all basically revolve around a witch (or old woman/crone) who curses the prince for various reasons (from lack of hospitality to vanity to spurning her love to greed)5. Movies with the same/similar storyline as Beauty and the Beast?Beastly (2011) Into The Woods (2014)6. poll Was BELLE from the BEAUTY AND THE BEAST a gold-digger?Must be some killer weed, bro. And yea, I get what you mean. Disney is one of the largest corporations in the world..it thrives on brainwashing children from youth to buy Disney and Disney related products.7. Beauty and the Beast Belle Dress?PERFECT!!! so pretty8. Appropriate age for Disney's Beauty and the Beast musical?My high school performed that production a few years ago, and it's very kid friendly. As with a lot of Disney stuff, there are a few jokes that are intended to entertain the adult audience (Lumiere and the feather duster, Cogsworth's tour of the castle), but the production is definitely still geared towards a family audience. The only reason it may be inappropriate to bring an infant would probably be the noise/sound effects, loud music, and potentially frightening costumes (the wolves and the Beast).9. Does anyone know the violin notes for Beauty and the Beast?The song you are thinking of is "Beauty and the Beast". My advice is to look at the piano score for it. You do not need to worry about transposing it that way. Look at the melody line for the piano or voice, and it should be the same for the violin.10. Where could I find the soundtrack of beauty and the beast?I would search youtube for the songs. Just get the title of each song (by looking up the album soundtrack) and check out the videos. If that doesnt work then rent the movie11. So, in Beauty and the Beast (the Disney version)...?its a movie who cares12. In the story of Beauty and the Beast whom do you have most sympathy toward and why?The servants because they are also punished for their master's selfishness13. Beauty and the Beast Audition?Well it's never a good idea to sing a song from the musical for the audition unless you are told to. I think that since you are a 1st soprano that something like Bali Hai or wishing you were somehow here again would sound lovely14. Does any one know how i can dress my horse up as Beast from "Beauty and the Beast"?I personally think it is quite cruel to dress animals up as it's not natural, it's usually quite uncomfortable for them to wear the clothes, it can outcast them from other animals, it prevents other animals from reading their body language and you do it purely for your entertainment, so, no offense, but I would advice that you do not dress your horse up as 'beast' at all15. Disney Beauty and the Beast Belle Costume?Well, you could make one!16. Religiously speaking: Beauty and the Beast or Aladdin?The Lion King. Hakuna Matata17. Do you ever have the theme from Beauty and the Beast going through your mind?Yes... frequently !! Grandkids love it also, so I will be stuck with it in my head for a few more years. Right now though it's "Under the Sea" from "The Little Mermaid" that's running in my brain.18. Does Belle kiss Gaston and Beast in Beauty and the Beast jr?I doubt very much that there would be a kiss between them in the Jr. version. I know there is in the full production, but that scene is pretty disturbing and I doubt they would include it in the jr version. I was in the full production, and while we still had the scene, I still did not have to kiss Gaston. If it's there, it will be up to the director whether or not to include it
The Salon Chair Guys
The Salon Chair Guys
, originally known as Affordable Salon Equipment Repair, began as a small beauty equipment servicing business in San Diego, CA. My father (Danny Sr) and I began the business to fulfill a need he saw in the industry for reliable beauty equipment service and repair.My father was a hairstylist and salon owner so growing up, when a salon styling chair would break down he would lug it to the back and together we would see what we could do to fix it. He always complained about how no one was around to help salon owners maintain equipment after it was sold. So in 97, after 20 years of hairdressing, he decided to quit hair and focus on salon equipment repair. This was my freshman year in college at SDSU so it was a great time to still work with my dad and help him do something completely new. After school, I left San Diego and my father continued the business till 2008 when he retired.After my dad retired and after several long discussions, I along with my best friend and business partner Brian Moses returned to San Diego and began the process of reviving Affordable Salon Equipment Repair.

Does Sally's Beauty Supply Store...?
Does Sally's Beauty Supply Store...?
Call the one closest to you. Depends on what they have in stock :)1. I got hair color from Sally Beauty Supply and I need some help?? (:?ok... you have to mix it with the same amount hair color.. :)2. Which Sally Hansen wax & gels have you tried?stay away from the sugar wax ones..its not on this list but all it does is make a sticky mess and does not remove any hair on your legs3. Sally Hansen wax kit NOT WORKING?!?! PLEASE HELP?!?I can not imagine what the problem is because that is the best wax I've ever used with respect to actually removing the hair. It's always been strong enough to remove the hairs(that are long enough) from anywhere even when its cold. Let me see if I can come up with some tips for you. Make sure your skin is clean and dry before waxing. No creams/lotions/soaps/oils should remain on the skin. Dust some baby powder on the area before waxing to keep the area dry(the wax works best when the skin is dry). Make sure the hairs are at least 1mm long. Apply a THIN layer in the direction of hair growth. You should be able to see the hairs under the layer of wax. Press the strips down in the direction of hair growth, but pull off in the opposite direction of hair growth. Do not pull "up". Pull the strips off while keeping them parallel and vertical with respect to the area. The box should come with a diagram. Do not use on broken/irritated skin. Wait for it to heal before attempting again.4. How do I scrunch my hair overnight!!?If you are looking for a way to achieve curls or waves without heat, then put mousse or gel (especially a curl-enhancing gel) in your hair, and while it is still wet, put several braids in it. The more braids you put in, the smaller the curls will be. Sleep in the braids and when they are dry in the morning take them out and voila! Lightly spray with hairspray for hold. Another heatless way to curl your hair is to use twist-flex rods/ Flexy rods. They are these little foam noodles that you wind your hair around and bend to secure-but you can sleep in them. You can find different sizes of them at Sally's. Put the gel or mousse in your wet hair before winding the rods, and when you are done winding all of your hair, sleep in the rods and they will be dry by morning. Good luck!5. What was the name of the movie Sally Field was in that was a true story?Norma Rae 1979 p.s. it was not before unions existed, as they have existed since the 18th century.6. Can you dye BLEACHED hair DARKER BLONDE?Yes, but make sure to mix in a protector so it wo not dry it out even more! Before you do everything, i would recommend going to purchase the dye at an actual beauty supply store such as Sally's. They have samples that you can match to yourself and you can ask the lady there for advice. To me, L'oreal hair dye works the best:).7. How do you use Sally Hansen Creme Hair Bleach?Mix the developer ( 10%,20%,30% ) with the bleach, I believe it is a 1:1 ratio ( 1 ounce of bleach to one ounce of developer ) but you should read the manufacturers instructions. The higher the percent of developer, the more lifting the bleach does, but also know that it takes away the natural hair color quicker, and also more damaging. If you are knew to bleach, do not go higher than 30 developer! Hope I helped!.8. Calling all pro hairstylist and colorist, need help.?I was trained using Paul Mitchell. Their color line is not all that happening in my opinion, but they say accurate, predictable results. They do have a lot of techniques to make those really vibrant looks! And their toning system for blinding this the best I've ever delt with. Their blinding system in general is pretty good, not too damaging. I have heard the matrix an redkins blonding was better. Idk. I do know that the stuff from Sally's is pretty good, I have used it several times just at home, but I would not expect to charge the same amount for services if your using this color brand. Clients come to you for a service, something they can not do themselves or can not have their daughters help with, this includes the products you have in your salon. You would be a little offended if your stylist put a box color on your head, and washed with Pantene, and expected you to pay for it right!?
Beauty Products Gloss Over Zalando Earnings Squeeze
Beauty Products Gloss Over Zalando Earnings Squeeze
BERLIN (Reuters) - Europe's biggest online fashion retailer Zalando ( ZALG.DE ) said the launch of beauty products in Germany had made a promising start and its active customer numbers jumped in the first quarter but a late start to spring hit profitability.Unseasonally cold weather across Europe in March delayed sales of spring and summer fashions and prompted more discounting to shift stock, denting profits, co-Chief Executive Rubin Ritter told reporters.But customers responded well to Zalando's move to sell 4,000 beauty products from 130 cosmetic and skin care brands online. Zalando's active customer numbers rose 17 percent to 24 million, while average orders per active customer also hit an all-time high.Zalando shares, which were hit in March when it said heavy investment would dent profitability this year, were up 4.2 percent at 0744 GMT, making them the biggest gainer on the German mid-cap index .MDAX."We see an opportunity to build the leading beauty destination," Ritter said, noting that only about 5 percent of beauty products were currently sold online, compared to about 15 percent for the fashion industry.He said that more than 70 percent of orders for beauty also included fashion garments. Zalando expects eventually to expand beauty products to other markets and also add male grooming ranges, Ritter said.Quarterly sales rose 22 percent to 1.196 billion euros ($1.43 billion), slightly ahead of average analyst forecasts for 1.18 billion.But adjusted earnings before interest and taxation (EBIT) fell to 0.4 million euros, falling short of forecasts for 11.5 million. Zalando's core German, Austria and Switzerland region compensated for a loss in the rest of Europe.Ritter said Zalando would keep investing heavily in its logistics infrastructure and marketing, but declined to say to which two markets it plans to expand later this year.British rival ASOS ( ASOS.L ) said last month it would also have to step up spending on technology and logistics to help maintain its lead in the online fashion pack, with the extra costs taking a toll on its elevated share price.Zalando kept its forecast for around 20 to 25 percent reported sales growth for the year unchanged, along with its target of an adjusted EBIT of between 220 million and 270 million euros.

What's the Deal with Numbers? Closed
What's the Deal with Numbers? Closed
Ordinarily, what a number refers to is more important than the number itself. 153 fish is a lot of fish. 2 small copper coins is a tiny amount of money. 14 years is a certain period of time. But to quote Bill James, sometimes numbers "have acquired the powers of language." When that happens, the numbers themselves begin to have meaning independent of what is being counted.1God began using numbers literally from the beginning to communicate to humanityour week is a continual reminder of Who ordered the universe and how.2 The number 12 carries particular significance since it was the number of Israelite tribes. Moses went so far as to separate out Joseph's inheritance into two half-tribes so that the number of territories was kept at twelve3. The early church made replacing Judas a top priority in order to bring the number of apostles back to twelve.Sometime during and after the Exile, a new genre of Jewish writing appeared that is labeled "apocalyptic". As a genre, it has close links to dream interpretation, such as we see with Joseph in Genesis 37, 40, and 41. Notice that numbers are of critical significance in each of the dreams and have a significance beyond simply counting things up. The second half of Daniel, a textbook case of the apocalyptic genre, extends the dream interpretation structure to reveal God's purpose, not just for one person, but for all of humanity. Revelation, which clearly uses Daniel imagery, tells us to "calculate" 666 in the most famous use of numerology.Numbers surround us and some of them tell a story. Unfortunately, not all numbers are meaningful. We tend to give more credence to ideas that make good stories and so we sometimes assume more about numbers than is warranted.4 If 12 is "good" or "lucky" or "blessed", than it seems reasonable that 13 (or 11) is the opposite. God uses numbers as language, but not all numbers and not at all times. When we assume otherwise, we start down the path of superstition.The question, however, brings up a somewhat different use for numbers: as a discipline or reminder. To remember that, for instance, Jesus was tempted in the desert for 40 days by observing Lent, seems only fitting. As long as numbers themselves point to God and do not replace Him, I think they can be worth observing.Having posted this on Friday the 13th, it's sure to be downvoted and probably will destroy the internet. I'm sorry you asked.1. Baseball is a great example of this. To a fan, the title the movie 61* is completely descriptive. We know exactly what the story will be about without reading the summary. SciFi (and humor) nerds don't need to be told the significance of 42 (as pointed out in the comments). In the US, we all recognize 911, 1776, and 13 as being important symbols, though there might be several interpretations of their meanings.2. Depending on how literal or not you take Genesis 1, this could be seen as a just-so story, but that does not alter the fact that the number 7 acquired meaning independent of what was counted.3. Levi received no land for an inheritance.4. A good place to explore the narrative fallacy is Nassim Nicholas Taleb's The Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness.Closed.

You’re a speck in a sea of 10,000 people. Rows of bodies bounce to the beat; roving lights wash over, and the cold winds of the open night sky sweep all around you. As power cans flash lightning on stage, the rumble of thunder strikes above. With every note of the double flute and sarangi rising up to the heavens, the clouds shower down torrents in return. After a day spent listening to 20 different artistes, across five stages and numerous genres, with skin now soaked in rain, sweat and the soul of spirited music, there’s little else in the world that really matters. Welcome to the spellbinding power of India’s indie music festival nights.From the scattered few stages of a decade ago, today, nearly every metro and two-tier city in India has a music festival to its name. With veterans, such as the five-year-old, four-city strong NH7 Weekender and Bangalore’s decade-old Oktoberfest, and young ventures, such as Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh, Rajasthan’s Magnetic Fields, Coorg’s Storm, Ooty’s GoMAD, Chennai and Goa’s Sunburn, Mumbai’s Mahindra Blues Festival and over 30 others, it’s raining independant music festivals on the country, and the drizzle swells into a full-fledged monsoon as the year comes to a close.A classic character of India’s major music festivals has been its multi-stage, multi-genre nature, where the bass pulsing off the electronica stage is just a hop away from the strains of someone’s guitar on the singer-songwriter stage. Modelled on the Glastonbury festival, the upcoming NH7 Weekender, for instance, features five genre stages with simultaneous acts that culminate at the ‘Arena’ for its headlining performance. It’s in creating that heady cocktail of a 100-artiste line-up — 70 per cent Indian acts (with fresh names each year or established ones with new material) and 30 per cent International performers — that Vijay Nair, founder of organisers Only Much Louder (OML), finds their biggest breakthrough.“Festival curation is an art,” says Anup Kutty, co-founder of Ziro, a three-year-old indie festival in the grasslands and meadows of Ziro village in Arunachal Pradesh. Their just-concluded edition highlighted folk artistes and less-known singer-songwriters from across the country, including the Sajda sisters, singing songs from their homeland Bathinda, Punjab. They had flown for the first time ever for this festival, and ended up jamming with Kolkata producer and solo artiste Neel Adhikari. “Multi-genre festivals bring about a convergence of cultures. The lines between folk and indie, urban and rural, language barriers, all blur, and the focus shifts to just quality music.”It’s precisely this sense of community across genres, and the possibility of collaborations, that draws artistes to such festivals. “It’s understood that festivals pay you half your artiste fee, given they bring so many performers to one stage, but for us, it’s the chance to see people you’ve only heard before, perform live, and discover young, fresh talent that makes it exciting,” says Rahul Ram, bassist for Indian Ocean, who’ve performed at Storm and GoMAD, and will stage their multi-collaborator new album Tandanu, live at NH7 this year.For the Raghu Dixit Project, that experience of being discovered at a festival is all too precious. In 2007, at OML’s Big Chill festival in Goa, Raghu and his band of lungi-clad boys were an innocuous bunch playing to a hundred people at first. “By the gig’s close, over 3,000 had gathered; news of us had spread fast and wide by word of mouth and that was our first big break,” says Raghu. From flautist Shankar Tucker, to claw-hammer banjoist Abigail Washburn, many of Raghu’s collaborators have been people he’s bumped into, and struck a chord with, at festival backstages. “There’s so much to learn just by watching fellow artistes play too!” he adds. “These spaces also give you a clear sense of the latest creative boundaries independent artistes in the country are pushing,” says Sharath Narayan, vocalist for one-album-old band Black Letters. “For a young band, they let you reach exactly that clued-in audience you’re looking for!”For how nascent India’s music festival culture is, audiences couldn’t be happier with how fast the scene has mushroomed. One offshoot has been niche festivals such as the EDM-only Sunburn festival that recently turned a Chennai resort into a dance floor, the Kasauli Rhythm and Blues Festival in Himachal Pradesh, and the Mahindra Blues Festival in Mumbai, to name a few. “Running a blues-only festival was quite a gamble,” says Owen Roncon, founder of Oranjuice and Fountainhead, which runs the Mahindra two-day show. “When we began, people considered the blues as ‘beggar music’, some old, black man somewhere crying about something.” Curating the festival has been about changing that perception by bringing in the best of International blues artistes, such as Zac Harmon and Jimmie Vaughan. Running full-house now for four years consecutively from Bandra’s Mehboob Studios, Owen says success has come from tailor-making the entire experience for both die-hard blues fan who come just for the music, and for those there just to “hang out”.Most music festivals today are thus as much about their destinations, the vibe and atmosphere they exude, as the music. Take Storm for example. The three-year-old Bangalore-based festival actually began as a camping event that would initiate responsible tourism through promoting local, musical talent reveals Lavin Uthappa, festival director. A camping festival is certainly unique to India, especially because, as Lavin says, “we don’t respect Nature”, something Storm aims to change by “bringing people together to enjoy Nature. Think of it as a camaraderie-based event, replete with late-night barbeques and adventure sports!” Tourism is a mainstay for Magnetic Fields festival too, which unfolds within the palatial splendour of Alsisar Mahal in Rajasthan. Live through the expansive worlds of art and heritage while lolling around in Bedouin tents, take yoga lessons or lose yourself in treasure hunts, lounge around at kite-flying parties or art workshops, or even attend costume balls and secret parties. “When we sell a music festival, we don’t just talk about the music; it’s a three-day holiday in Rajasthan that is an experience in itself,” says Munbir Chawla, festival organiser.Over time, festivals take on a character for themselves defined by the artistes and audience that frequent them, adds Vijay. While NH7 makes conscious efforts to keep the colour black out of its stage designs and signage, in keeping with its ‘happiest festival’ tag, and Ziro draws strict lines about its environmentally conscious model, it’s the attitudes of leisure and comfort that festival-goers bring to these venues that create their spirit of peacefulness. From a broad demographic of listeners in their 20s and 30s, festivals with an air of safety and security, now also cater to families that come with grandparents and kids in tow, each finding their own space of happiness at these festivals.As business burgeons though, Rahul notes, that there is a tendency to exorbitantly price festival tickets, making the music needlessly elite. “It makes no sense to take the music away from the youth, who are our most ardent fans, and don’t have huge budgets!” Moreover, as the frequency of such festivals draws closer, the more often a line-up of ‘usual suspect’ artistes too repeats itself. Stories abound of festivals that have opened with great aplomb, but fallen in on themselves a year after birth, from poor planning, shoddy artiste management and few sponsors. Magnetic Fields, for instance, has no sponsors (they have private funding), and Munbir says that gives him “the freedom to do what we want and work with a specific vision, while Storm and Ziro enjoy Government sponsorship.” Anup explains: “It’s about finding a sustainable business model between your sponsorships, merchandise, stall rentals, and campaigns, which enables you to subsidise your tickets to reach the audience you want to. It boils down to your intentions, really. Over commerce, you have to believe in the festival itself, in great artistes, great music.”A year in festivalsStormWhere: Bangalore/CoorgWhen: Usually takes place end of January-beginning of February.

Beauty Serum Products and How to Use Them
Beauty Serum Products and How to Use Them
There are so many skin care products on the market these days that shopping for them can be confusing. People who are not well-versed in the beauty industry often find themselves wondering about the differences between creams and lotions and confounded by what other products are. Serum products tend to be mysteries to many consumers because they are relatively new to the industry. The mystery is unraveled here, enabling people to discover whether these products meet their needs.What Is a Beauty Serum?Skin care products labeled as serums tend to come in small jars or tubes and carry high price tags. This may prevent consumers from taking a second look, but that can be a mistake because serums provide many benefits. For years, spas were the exclusive users of these treatments, making the products well-kept secrets. Serums contain high concentrations of ingredients that are chemically formulated into small molecules.Serum products have similar qualities to moisturizers and are used to treat redness, dryness, and fine lines on skin. However, their molecules are smaller, so serums are absorbed into skin more quickly and deeply, making them more intensive than moisturizers. Results are dramatic and last substantially longer than those provided by a typical moisturizer. Skin is nourished and enhanced, and its performance gets a boost from the high concentration of beneficial ingredients.Benefits of Serums Though formulas used to create a serum may vary, the best brands have common benefits. These skin care products soften, hydrate, and smooth skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consumers who are too young to worry about anti aging skin care routines benefit from the evening, toning, and brightening features of a serum. Many formulas have exfoliating ingredients designed to minimize wrinkles and fine lines while reducing skin discolorations like dark spots.Retinol serum products provide non-prescription ways to get pure vitamin A. Retinol is proven to counteract the effects of aging on the skin. It supports the production of collagen, causing skin to appear firmer and fuller. Retinol also reduces the visible effects of sun damage on skin by repairing skin cells in the epidermis. Regular use of a serum containing retinol results in even-toned, rejuvenated skin that can make a person look many years younger.How To Apply Beauty Serums Applying a serum to the skin is not difficult. Simply put a drop of the product on the fingertips and massage the liquid into clean skin. Serum should be applied each morning and night and followed by a moisturizer. One or two drops should be enough to cover the entire face and neck area, which should not be neglected during the skin care routine.After using serum products for the first time, many people feel an instant change in their skin. They notice that skin feels smoother, softer, and tighter. Visible results are typically achieved within four weeks and will be most noticeable on people who had fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, or red skin prior to beginning treatment.
