Hair Conditioning… Placenta?

Tia Zolin Placenta, a hair conditioner used in many salons, is said to come from human placentas.  It is a straw-colored liquid- with a white sediment- that comes in a single-use sealed vial.  The vial is shaken and broken in a towel.  The liquid is massaged into the hair.  It is not rinsed out- if there really is placenta in Tia Zolin, it is in the hair of anyone who has just used it.

Where do they get human placentas?  Tia Zolin Placenta is manufactured by Hask, Inc., of Great Neck, New York.  In response to a letter asking about the product, a Hask vice-president confirmed that there is human material in Tia Zolin.  But what they call placenta comes from human umbilical cords, not placentas per se.  Hask says it gets the umbilical cords from hospitals “in much the same way that human blood and other vital organs are obtained.”

Reviewed By Cynthia Haines MD

Standing tall, feeling confident, believing in yourself — these are all important ways to feel your best. But as any woman who’s ever stood in front of a mirror can tell you, beauty secrets count too! While the way we look may be only one part of who we are, it is still a part of us. And feeling that you look your best can be a real confidence booster.

Looking your best doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive, either.

Experts say most of us really only need to pay attention to a few basic beauty secrets — essentials that can help you look and feel great without spending a lot of time or money.

To help you find the beauty tips that really work, WebMD talked to top skin care and beauty experts, who parted with their personal tips for looking great:

Beauty Tip 1: Never Underestimate the Power of Moisturizer

Whether your skin is dry, normal, or even oily, if you can only afford one skin care product, experts say, your dollars will be well spent on a good moisturizer. “Sometimes, all you really need is a good moisturizer and a mild cleanser, and you can take years off your face,” says New York University professor Rhoda Narins, MD, president of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. When skin is dry, says Narins, every wrinkle is accentuated, making you look older. Continue reading 5 Beauty Secrets

2012 Beauty Trend Forecast

Skin Clearing TipsForecasting a trend for 2012 in the world of beauty: an upsurge in nutri-cosmetics products. Which are antioxidant and vitamin packed drinks and foods. Which aren’t new by any means. These offerings have been around for years. And of course men and women won’t be giving up their anti-aging facials and moisturizers in the coming year. If anything they will certainly try sampling some more of these nutri-cosmetics.

As with any trend, take it with a grain of salt. If all someone eats during day is pizza and junk food, then drinks a vitamin infused drink, they probably won’t see the benefits to their skin.
