Researchers Show How Anti-Aging Cosmetics Work A team of investigators from UC Davis and Peking Univ. discovered a mechanism that may explain how alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) ― the key ingredient in cosmetic chemical peels and wrinkle-reducing creams ― work to enhance skin appearance. An understanding of the underlying process may lead to better cosmetic formulations as well as have medical applications.In a series of experiments that involved recording electrical currents across cultured cells exposed to AHAs, the investigators developed a model that describes how glycolic acid (the smallest and most biologically available AHA) enters into keratinocytes and generates free protons, creating acidic conditions within the cell. The low pH strongly activates the TRPV3 ion channel, opening it and allowing calcium ions to flow into the cell. Because more protons also enter through the open TRPV3 channel, the process feeds on itself. The resulting calcium ion overload in the cell leads to its death and skin exfoliation.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2012/08/researchers-show-how-anti-aging-cosmetics-work

Exposing our brains to radiation, letting the government track our every move, poisoning our minds with hidden Emoji Illuminati messages—these are just a few of the ways smart phones are ruining your life. Here’s another: they give you wrinkles.

Complaints of neck folds have been on…

New Options for Breast Cancer Surgery

Treating breast cancer almost always involves surgery, and for years the choice was just having the lump or the whole breast removed. Now, new approaches are dramatically changing the way these operations are done, giving women more options, faster treatment, smaller scars, fewer long-term side effects and better cosmetic results.

It has led to a new specialty — “oncoplastic” surgery — combining oncology, which focuses on cancer treatment, and plastic surgery to restore appearance.

Put on that sunblock! A new study shows people living with HIV are at an increased risk for developing melanoma or skin cancer. Fair-skinned people living with HIV should be regularly screened for suspicious skin lesions and should also be warned about the dangers of prolonged exposure to the sun. #hiv #aids #skincancer http://ift.tt/1loW7zC

We’ve heard of nose jobs and breast implants, but it seems that more women are asking for feet procedures, despite the risks involved. 

This bizarre operation includes procedures such as 'shortening their toes, adding collagen to their heels and even removing their pinky toe - in order to fit into those sky-high stilletos.'

Would you go to extreme lengths just to squeeze into a pair of sky scraping Louboutins? Read this article here to find out more about these disturbing procedures…
