Wrinkles in a Multimedia World
Research from The Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association states that at the end of 2010, there were 302.9 million wireless subscriber connections in America. This is the equivalent of 96 percent of the population of the United States. These days, almost every single wireless device comes with a camera. Most cameras range in the 2 megapixel to 5 megapixel range. This allows for better than life-like quality in pictures. Most of these cameras also include the ability to create videos, again with life-like quality. In the past, pictures and even videos would be uploaded to a computer and be inspected and edited to remove blemishes, wrinkles, and anything else one might consider undesirable. Then, after editing, the photos would be emailed to family and friends. More and more, wireless devices can connect seamlessly to Facebook and Youtube and immediately upload photos and videos on the internet immediately for all to see without the benefit of editing. Once those videos and pictures are posted online, they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for scrutiny from anyone with internet access.

Exfoliation: What It Really Can Do For You
Since I started exfoliating 4 years ago, I've seen a major alternation in my skin: I no longer have blackheads, my skin is smoother, I need less and it looks more healthy than it's ever looked. Exfoliating can provide you with a fresh skin in a matter of minutes! Sloughing off dead, dull surface cells exposes a brand new, younger-looking, smooth and even layer of skin cells that absorb and reflect light, so lines look softer and skin glows. (If light hits a smooth surface it bounces off as a perfect, even reflection; when it hits a tough surface it creates shadows and the surface looks duller and older.) Exfoliation may also actually speed the cell renewal rate by 30%. Here's why: Every twenty-five to thirty days your skin renews itself -- it sloughs off its outermost layer around one million dull, dried-out dead cells (among the 100 million cells on your face) and replaces it with an all-new layer of healthy moisture-plumped cells which have been generated deep in the dermis. This natural sloughing process slows naturally as you become older and, in addition, it's hindered through the ravages of the environment -- sun, wind, pollution, dirt and makeup, which combine to age the topmost layer of cells faster than new cells can be achieved to replace them. Thus, old-looking surface cells linger longer than they should and provide your skin a dull, lifeless appearance, to say nothing of disturbing the generation of new cells. This is where exfoliation comes in.
