California based Natural Magic recently launched a new line of natural and organic herbal skin care with an earth friendly focus. The company, which is a member of The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, provides eco-friendly, effective natural and organic skin care that replenishes and rejuvenates skin without harmful ingredients. Founder/owner Yvette Dellanini Ward comments, “My background as an esthetician, acupuncturist and herbalist led to my exploring healing effects of Chinese herbology on the skin. I had a friend who suffered with terrible hyperpigmentation and I gave her herbal soaks with Pearl Powder. The results were amazing. I was inspired to create effective natural skin care that is free of harsh chemicals and eco-friendly.”
Ward also notes that “consumers are becoming more savvy about all natural, eco-friendly products, which could be why Natural Magic Eco-Herbal Skin Care products were chosen to participate in the 2010 Golden Globes gift bags.” Natural Magic is already being used by professionals with positive results. Notes Tina Schroeder, a San Francisco esthetician, “I am very impressed with Natural Magic Eco-Herbal Products. I love the Eye Treatment and I could see major improvement in just a few uses. I highly recommend their eco-friendly natural and organic products to anyone looking to update or change their skin care regimen.”

Findings from a new study published in the November/December issue of Aesthetic Surgery Journal (ASJ), a publication of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), suggest that gender-specific differences in the perioral skin (skin surrounding the mouth) account for more and deeper skin wrinkling in women than in men. The study, conducted by a team of plastic surgeons from the Netherlands, was presented at the annual meeting of the European Association of Plastic Surgeons last May in Barcelona, Spain.
“The aim of this study is to obtain new insight into the perception that women wrinkle earlier and more severely than men,” said the study’s lead author, Emma C. Paes, M.D., from the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, Netherlands. “If we understood the reasons for differences in wrinkling between women and men, then we might be able to develop better strategies for the treatment of perioral wrinkles.”
Skin surface replicas of the upper lip region in 10 male and 10 female cadavers (age range 75-93) were used to define the amount and depth of perioral wrinkling. To provide additional data, 3 full-thickness lip resections were taken from each of 15 male and 15 female fresh cadavers and were investigated in a blinded fashion.
The study found that all of the following could be contributing factors to the presence of more and deeper perioral wrinkles in women:
- Women’s perioral skin contains fewer sweat glands and sebaceous glands (microscopic glands in the skin that secrete an oily/waxy matter, called sebum, to lubricate skin and hair), which could influence the natural filling of the dermis (skin).
- Women’s perioral skin contains fewer blood vessels and, therefore, is less vascularized compared to men, which could accelerate the development of wrinkles.
- In women, the closer attachment of the muscular fibers surrounding the orifice of the mouth to the dermis may cause an inward traction, thereby creating deeper wrinkles.
Current treatments for perioral wrinkles include the use of lasers, botulinum toxin injections, and injectable or implantable wrinkle fillers as well as older methods such as dermabrasion and chemical peels. Despite these many options, the effective treatment of wrinkles in the perioral region still remains a challenging problem.
“We think it’s important to consider the reasons why a particular treatment may or may not be effective,“ said Dr. Paes. “Sometimes one has to go back to the basics instead of just moving forward. In the end, having more basic knowledge about a problem can speed up the process of finding the right solution.”
The 2400-member American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), founded in 1967, is the leading organization of ABMS-certified plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic plastic surgery. With ASAPS active members certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Canadian active members certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and International members certified in their countries of origin, ASAPS is at the forefront of innovation in aesthetic plastic surgery.

PearlinBrite, a unique in-office laser whitening system offered in the Manhattan offices of Dr. Jan Linhart has been attributed with “almost 100% tooth whitening success in the majority of cases” to-date, according to the prominent dentist’s website.
While Dr. Linhart has also developed PearlinBrite oral home-care products, including toothpaste and lip balm, he recommends his in-office system for dramatically whiter teeth. During this whitening process, specially formulated gels are applied individually to each tooth. This allows Dr. Linhart to avoid existing cosmetic dentistry and focus on particular teeth, increasing both safety and effectiveness. Dr. Linhart cites this precision as an important factor in the system’s whitening success, stating, “Because PearlinBrite is so precise, we are able to minimize exposure of the gums and avoid issues of gum tissue sensitivity while getting great results.” Other whitening systems lack a comparable degree of flexibility and precision.
Dr. Linhart explains that while the results of the in-office tooth whitening treatment vary from patient to patient, one can expect a nine to ten shade improvement after a single visit. “With PearlinBrite, the results are immediate,” says Dr. Linhart. The procedure takes approximately two hours to complete and results immediately in a whiter, brighter smile.
PearlinBrite was developed by Dr. Linhart, who has been practicing advanced dentistry for the last twenty-five years, as he sought a way to perfect tooth whitening. Like other whitening treatments, it uses a laser to activate peroxides in gel, exciting oxygen to “attack” stains on the teeth. But unlike other systems PearlinBrite uses two lasers instead of just one. This, combined with several carefully formulated, laser-specific gels, increases the procedure’s effectiveness.
“It comes down to what is best for the patients,” states Dr. Linhart, “how to help them achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. That is why I developed PearlinBrite, and I am thrilled by its success.”
PearlinBrite laser tooth whitening is available exclusively in the Manhattan offices of Dr. Jan Linhart.
Dr. Jan Linhart, DDS, a Manhattan based restorative and cosmetic dentist attracts patients from around the world. Come by our Park Avenue Manhattan office to inquire about our Pearlinbrite teeth whitening procedures and other state-of-the-art dental services that we offer including implant dentistry, orthodontics, porcelain veneers, and more.

JUARA, leading natural skincare company, is launching an “Escape to Bali” body care kit for a limited-time only. The set contains a travel size of Candlenut Hand & Body Balm (1.2 oz) and a Candlenut Perfume Oil in a rollerball (0.3 oz), a $38 value for only $28.
“Whisk yourself away to the secluded, tropical beaches of Bali with this special set of JUARA’s celebrity-favorite, natural skincare,” Metta Murdaya, JUARA founder and Indonesia native said. “The Candlenut Hand & Body Balm and matching Candlenut Perfume Oil can be applied anytime, anywhere, to transport your spirits to a vacation paradise. Pop the travel-size balm in your purse and use as needed to soften and help protect hands.”
JUARA’s signature, custom-created Candlenut scent is an unforgettable bouquet of bergamot, freesia, vanilla, rose and coconut. According to Murdaya, the aroma is designed for those who want to transport their senses to the tropical island of Bali, while refreshing their skin.
The natural cosmetic kit’s Candlenut Perfume Oil has a rollerball applicator to conveniently deliver the perfect amount of fragrance to the skin, without messiness. The alcohol-free formula is gentle on the skin, but provides a long-lasting scent. In addition, the kit’s Candlenut Hand & Body Balm is an ultra-rich formula for hands and body that immediately relieves even the driest skin and protects it from the drying effects of water, wind and harsh winter elements. Both products are rich in candlenut oil, which is revered in Indonesia for its supremely moisturizing properties and velvety touch; this balm deeply nourishes the skin, leaving a smooth, protective finish. The “Escape to Bali” kit products are free of parabens, phthalates and artificial dyes.
“The Candlenut scent reminds me of my many family vacations to Bali when I was a child,” Murdaya said. “I let the scent transport me to that favorite place of mine; it’s a very relaxing and soothing aroma, and our “Escape to Bali” kit allows us to share that experience with our customers.”
For more information about the Candlenut kit or JUARA, visit www.juaraskincare.com.
Recognizing that present skincare offerings did not have solutions that were rooted in history and simple to use, four young friends sought to bring back the traditions of the past by creating products that fuse the active botanicals of Indonesian herbal recipes with Western science to create products that represent the best of both, the east and west.
Metta Murdaya, Yoshiko Roth, Jill Sung and Tami Chuang, four creative, culturally- diverse young women with a follow-your-dream mentality shared a vision to build a brand that combined their Western upbringing with their Asian ancestry and turned it into a passion for results-driven skincare. Together, they founded JUARA, an east-meets-west Indonesian line of treatments, reminiscent of the ancient spa experience, relevant to the savvy, conscientious person of today.
Utilizing active botanicals such as rice, tamarind, turmeric, candlenut oil, healing teas and red sandalwood, JUARA combines time-honored recipes for skin health and well-being with the best in modern technology and innovation to deliver efficacious and elegant treatments of the highest quality.

From Adam Lambert’s spikes to Amy Winehouse’s piled-high beehive, today’s fashionable hairstyles may seem new and unique, but many are actually rooted in history. Like clothing fashion trends, hairstyles of old have made some interesting comebacks—usually with a fun, modern twist. In the new paperback book Fashionable Folks: Hairstyles 1840-1900 (Picture Perfect Press, $19.95), author Maureen Taylor uses old photographs to show how hairstyles and facial hair changed throughout the 19th century.
“Throughout years of studying photographs, I’ve seen many fascinating details in 19th-century pictures,” Taylor says. “But it’s often the hair that stands out. Every fashion era had its distinctive hairstyle, from functional to fanciful.” She chose 79 portraits to feature in Fashionable Folks as examples of how men and women styled their hair at the time. Details from each portrait tell so much about the society, times and trends of the day, as well as a great deal about the individuals pictured. Short, long, curled and coiffed manes were as trendy as the dresses and suits worn during each period.
Just by looking at the hairstyle, you can learn about a person’s fashion sense and character. How someone wore their locks for the photographer—straight or curled, clean-shaven or fringed, oiled or bewigged—will tell you a lot. Taylor’s tips for “reading” the clues of clothing and hairstyles will help you discover when those pictures were taken, how old the subjects were at the time, and how wealthy they were.
In Fashionable Folks, you’ll also find some fascinating facts about hair in the 19th century. For example:
- While facial hair for men wasn’t acceptable until the 1850s, many men wore fake beards and mustaches during their leisure time.
- People typically washed their hair only about once a month.
- Most women of the Victorian era had a hairpiece, such as a set of curls or a comb with hair added to it.
- In the 19th century, hair was sold to make jewelry. Gray strands could be shaped into “white” flowers.
Fashionable Folks: Hairstyles 1840-1900 by Maureen Taylor can now be purchased at Amazon.com $19.95.
