Body Sugaring
as a Method of
Hair Removal
By Brittany Russell
For centuries, we have searched for variety in hair removal; a modern spin on a system used since Ancient Egypt shows promise. Several benefits of using any variation of a sugar paste (i.e., sugar, lemon juice, honey, and some herbs) have been demonstrated when comparing it to the more common wax method.
• Sugar paste consists of 100% natural ingredients – it is so natural you can eat it!
• It can be applied at room temperature–your skin will never be burned, and this makes sugar paste safe for people with spider veins and varicose veins.
• There is less tendency for hair to break using sugar, and less breakage means hair is less likely to grow back quickly.
• No resins or chemicals are used or left behind on the skin when using sugar paste. Sugar is easily washed off with water – you will not feel sticky and clothes will not be ruined.
• Using sugar can help control cross-contamination – bacteria cannot breed or survive in sugar.
• Hair is removed in the direction of is natural growth making the process less painful.
• Sugar will remove hair and exfoliate dead skin cells; it will not adhere to live skin cells, thus making it safe for dry itch eczema and dry psoriasis.

“Working” On
Your Health
By David Neeser
Changes in the attitudes about work, and in the workplace itself, are exerting a massive influence on how we maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Our expectations of the workplace have changed in recent years. Sterile, box-like working
conditions are not consistent with today’s modern workplace. The new direction is toward a mixture of interesting, social and creative workspace designs. The lifestyle-conscious employer and employee want open and creative spaces, convenient health facilities and amenities, as well as a fun and playful community.
Everyone knows the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle – you can live longer and live better. But can the same be said of a workplace? Does a better workplace make you a healthier person?
Research shows that a better balance of work and lifestyle will make our daily lives more enjoyable, and part of that enjoyment is better health. According to evidence gathered by the National Quality Institute, healthier workplaces with a focus on sustainable wellbeing, a working lifestyle unique and flexible to the individual, will create an environment in which you will thrive and prosper.
Organizations are starting to understand that employer practices that foster employee well-being must be built into the workplace culture. Offering employees flexible work scheduling, telecommuting and other healthy lifestyle options such as onsite health, stress-management, weight-loss and smoking-cessation programs can help employees optimize their physical and mental health.
So with employee shortages looming, organizations that can recruit and retain the best people with a unique lifestyle-centered workplace will have the advantage. Individuals who care about their overall health and quality of life will be seeking this inside the workplace as well as out.
