Travel around the world with us this year

This is the year of the OxWith the change of the year is also a change in our newsletter format. Though our goal will still be the same - to offer you informative information on skincare, health, wellness, make-up and hair removal - we will be changing our theme. There will be a new country being explored every month, as well as a contest, Night on the Town and Make-up/Skincare Events. Each month will be different so be sure to check it out.

This month we will be traveling to China for Chinese New Year. 2009 is the Year of the Ox and officially begins on January 26th, one day after my birthday! You are an ox if you were born in the years: 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949. Low and steady marks the ox's character. Bona fide leaders, they are grounded, determined and highly dependable. They have the ability to motivate and inspire confidence in others as well. Those born under the sign are meticulous, systematic and real sticklers for details. They can be straight-laced and prefer routine. Simplicity and straightforwardness govern their personality. However, the ox has a temper and it's wise to get out of its way when it rears its horns.

Question of the day - What are the beauty benefits of green tea?

Green tea is now the preferred drink of supermodels, but is it really any better for you than a good, old-fashioned cuppa? We investigate...

Clinical evidence suggests that green tea is packed with health and beauty benefits that you can enjoy whether drinking it or applying directly to your skin. Even the leaves can be used as a gentle exfoliant, guaranteed to give your skin a healthy glow.

Recent research shows that green tea extract is naturally rich in antioxidants, which help protect the body from free radicals - naturally occurring particles in the body associated with accelerated Enjoy a cup of green teaaging and an increased risk of major diseases. Exposure to pollution, smoking and excess sunlight increases the number of free radicals in the blood, but the potent antioxidants found in green tea add strong weight to the belief that green tea not only promotes good health but also makes you look younger. Green tea has a special antioxidant in it. This antioxidant is used to clear cell damage on the skin, repairing what may have turned into wrinkles, blemishes, or other impurities.

Traditionally, many types of make-up, lotions, creams and beauty preparations have used chemical antioxidants, or vitamins A, C and E as preservatives for their products. Now, with research indicating that green tea has even more antioxidant properties than these powerful vitamins, there is a surge in products capitalizing on its natural benefits.

Green tea can be used in skincare as an anti-oxidant, in a toothpaste to help with bad breath and drank daily as a part of weight loss.
