Turkish Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can roduce patterns similar to marble or other stone, hence the name.
This decorative material has been used to cover a variety of surfaces for several centuries.
CONTEMPORARY create design fabric marbling paper technique designs on paper, glass or on silk fabrics . Marbled paper, called ebru in Turkish, was used extensively in the binding of books and within the calligraphic panels in Turkey. Ebru technique consists of sprinkling colours containing a few drops of ox-gall on to the surface of the bath sized with kitre (gum tragacanth) in a trough.
After the 1550's, booklovers in Europe prized ebru, which came to be known as ‘Turkish papers’.
Jan Bohuslav Sobota died on May 2nd of 2012 and this is my remembrance of this fine man who was a friend and mentor to me.
Each autumn, salmon return to the rivers of their birth a€“ there to spawn and once again trigger a renewal of the eternal passion play. Salmon that do eventually arrive at their destinations must once again compete a€“ this time for mates and to fight for access to the precious and very limited gravels. The profligate expenditure of life and extravagant wealth of biology is there everywhere to behold, as Death dances lightly among the gathering throngs of fish, picking and choosing from among them; who from their number shall successfully spawn and who shall just be food for the gathering predators and scavengers.
Spend a day in silence, walking among the spawning salmon, as they dig spawning redds, jockey for position and slash at competitors with those gaping, snaggletoothed, hooked jaws. Jan Bohuslav Sobota has died, while half a world away; I was preparing these etchings of Spawned Salmon and dedicating them to Jan, the lover of fish. The book you hold in your hands has evolved from my simply giving these etchings a second life in book form, to my using them as a vehicle for honoring a friendship of three decades. In 1985, Jan and I had been corresponding for some months without ever meeting a€“ all quite distant and correct. A short bit of background on Jan Sobota to begin, but fear not; Ia€™ll soon be spinning anecdotes and thoughts on books as art a€“ celebrating Jana€™s life of course, telling a few stories out of school, but also straying into the personal and speculative in search of the meaning to be derived from the life and death of a friend. Jana€™s father was a serious bibliophile and collector of fine books, who nurtured that same love of books in his son a€“ an appreciation that steadily grew, until he was apprenticed to master bookbinder Karel A ilinger in PlzeA?. The pivotal event in Jana€™s early life as a book artist was the posthumous retrospective exhibition of fellow Pilsener, Josef VA?chal in 1969. Jan supported a family, sponsored workshops, exhibited widely, did conservation work on rare historic books, ran a gallery a€“ and on it went. What Jan did for contemporary bookbinding, was to act as a bridge between the traditionally trained masters of the past and innovators of the present. America was a great place to be a book artist in the early 1980a€™s precisely because it was an active zone of hybridization and hotbed of creativity. An instructive contrast to the anything-goes US scene was the icy reception I got when I showed a wooden box containing loose sheets of poetry and etchings to a Prague publisher.
Neither Jan nor I had much interest in the book-like objects that often sneak into the museums as book arts a€“ the carved and glued together things that sorta, kinda have a bookish aspect to them a€“ rough-looking a€“ perhaps chain-sawed Oaken boards or granite slabs, slathered in tar and lashed together with jute; but lacking text. When Jana€™s books went beyond function, conservation or decoration, they were subtle statements about binding and the place of books, knowledge and art, as well as statements about the dignity inhering in the handcrafted - with a good dose humor.
There are others who know their conservation and those, whose scientific contributions are far greater, but few of them are also artists at heart. It can sound so pedestrian, these eternal compromises between art and craft, yet what Jan represented was not at all common. There is an inflection point at which exceptional craft begins to make the transition to art and it is closely associated with surmounting the limitations inhering to the discipline. Visiting with Jan in his workshop you quickly realized, that he did what a professional must, but ultimately, he just loved messing about with books. A curiously protean hybrid of artist and craftsman, ancient and modern, one cannot think of Jan without seeing an unabashed Czech patriot in a foreign land. Early on in their stay in Cleveland, the Sobotas experienced the quintessential American disaster. Even after their medical debts were retired, money was still an issue for a family of immigrants with three kids a€“ two with special needs. Later on, when they were living in Texas, the massacre at Waco opened Jana€™s eyes to yet another difficult side of his adopted home. In 1979, I apprenticed with Jindra Schmidt, an engraver of stamps and currency, living in Prague. Schmidt had engraved stamps for Bulgaria, Iraq, Ethiopia, Albania, Guinea, Vietnam and Libya. In 1992, Jindra Schmidt was honored for his contributions and depicted on the last stamp of a united Czechoslovakia, before it split into Czech and Slovak republics a€“ a fitting tribute. Unlike most children of immigrants, my destiny remained connected to that of my parentsa€™ homeland.
My vocation as artist clarified itself in Prague while learning the increasingly obsolete skills of steel engraving. My first book was indeed, modeled after VA?chal, even to the extent of its diabolical subject matter. Jan showed me a great deal in the following years about the tradition of books as the meeting place of art, craft and ideas a€“ where printmaking intergrades seamlessly with the worlds of language, typography and illustration. One can like these things just fine and admire them from an uncomprehending distance, or you can become engaged.
The book you hold was to have been a simple reprint of the Spawned Salmon a€“ something fun for Jan to work his magic upon.
Nice sentimental reminiscences, but there is still the matter of getting the work accomplished and out before the public, organizing exhibitions, printing catalogs and paying for transatlantic flights. The Prague show was reconfigured and curated by Jana€?s longtime friend, Ilja A edo, for exhibition at the West Bohemian Museum in PlzeA?. Quite predictably, I like seeing the kind of work I do honored a€“ the wood engravings and etchings made to shine in the context of crisply printed type and an excellent binding. Ia€™ve heard printmakers lament that the surest way to devalue prints is to add excellent poetry, sensitive typography and a bang-up binding a€“ and then live to see the whole thing sell for half the price of just the unbound prints. Therea€™s nothing quite like seventeenth century Bohemia, the dead center of Europe, for particularly thorough violence a€“ with the Bubonic Plague stepping in afterwards as mop-up crew.
The chapel at Sedlec was rebuilt after the major blood-letting of the thirty-years war as a memento mori a€“ reminder of death. What can you say about the mounds of dead, the ruined lives, destroyed nations and misery multiplied by millions that isna€™t trite or self-evident? But then I pan over to other fields a€“ not the kind where the grass is composting my fellow man, but to fields of endeavor where the ferment is of ideas recombining into ever more refined ways of thinking.
I once lived at the Golem house in Prague a€“ at Meislova ulice, number 8, in the old Jewish ghetto.
Horoscopes might seem a curious basis on which to select ministers and diplomats, but it is also more common than youa€™d think.
Picture the scene before you: Ita€™s a late night in Prague, before the Marlboro man dominated every street corner, even before the neon of casinos and the vulgarity of Golden Arches assaulted the nightwalkersa€™ eyes at all hours a€“ back when darkness, oh yes, that beautiful comforting velvety, all-enveloping and blessed dark, broken only by the moon, stars and late night taxis, still ruled the streets after the sun went down. The Golem was a mythic being of Jewish folklore, created from clay and quickened by the Shem, a magical stone engraved with an ancient Hebraic inscription, inserted into Golema€™s forehead.
The maternal tongues of these small nations have miraculously survived all the invasions, floods, plagues and foreign occupiers to this day a€“ a gift preserved and delivered to them across the generations.
Minority languages, on the other hand, carry an emotional load that can scarcely be exaggerated. Ishi and his sister were the last of the Yahi tribe to survive the genocidal colonization of California. Those whose language and culture are not threatened can never know the burden under which the carriers of small minority languages labor a€“ nor how those in exile bring up their children to preserve that which is beyond their capacities to save. Jan was all about preserving traditions and the kind of ancestral knowledge that today is mostly enshrined in books.
Today, the stories of our tribes are less and less passed on as oral tradition and most often read to us from the childrena€™s books wea€™ve learned to treasure a€“ illustrated by fine artists and produced with care for the highly discriminating purchasers of childrena€™s books a€“ for grandparents. A?epelA?k employed binders and typesetters to present complete suites of his work and in this too, he introduced me to a new world. Later in Prague I missed my flight back, due to the World Trade Center bombing and was delayed by a week.
The difficult thing to bear in acknowledging my teachers, models, heroes, suppliers and inspirations, is that these masters of the crafts and industries surrounding and supporting the book arts are mostly deceased. The fruit we seek is not fast food, but laden with full-bodied flavors, attained by slow natural processes. All of us come from grandfathers who once were wheelwrights, cobblers or instrument makers; men with a profound love of wood and leather, who knew the working qualities of every kind of obscure tree growing in their countryside a€“ men who knew when to reach for elm or hickory a€“ as well as for goat, dog or even fish-skins. Jan spoke fondly of his grandmother, who baked bread every week of the year to feed an entire estate a€“ farm hands, livery people, gentry, trainers and hod-carriers alike. Working consciously is the ultimate goal a€“ and that is the legacy youa€™ll find evidently contained within and upon the boards of every book bound by Jan Bohuslav Sobota. The etchings you see here first came to life as illustrations for the wedding anniversary announcements of MA­la and Jaroslav KynA?l. Jan Bohuslav Sobota died on May 2nd of 2012 and this is my remembrance of this fine man who was a friend and mentor to me.A  He was an exceptional bookbinder, teacher and promoter of the book arts, but also an exile who successfully returned home after years abroad.

The truth is, a tremendous amount of misinformation surrounds these products and it’s imperative clients know and understand this. While there are certainly exceptions to this, your clients can count on the fact that you, a licensed aesthetician, have taken the time to go through the proper training to earn the right to consult them on their skin. Simple dialogue with your clients can help them understand the level of care you put into your product selections.
Many professionals using Rhonda Allison products will highlight the use of cutting-edge science, quality ingredients, choices and customization for all skin types, and the longevity of the products.
Finally, any product that is sold in mass on the internet, in a mainstream store or as an MLM, is going to have some restrictions on the level of active ingredients that may be used. Keep in mind, sometimes it takes them venturing out on their own to test those products and learn for themselves.
Retail sales is one of the most profit-driven components of your business, and yet for many aestheticians it is the least.
Inventory, organizing, and selling retail are big question marks for most skin care professionals. In your inventory system notate when the product went on the shelf, and if it’s been there too long (well passed its expiration), pull it from the shelf. To preserve the life of your products, keep them out of direct sunlight or other direct lights.
Now let’s talk about how to get your products in the hands of your clients without coming across as an overly aggressive salesperson.
When you do send clients home with products, be sure to talk to them, not only about the how, why, and when to use, but about the shelf life of their home care as well. With Rhonda Allison products specifically, it is common for colors to shift or separation to occur in many of our formulas.
Weather is warming, flowers are beginning to bloom, and bright colors have started to immerge again. Many clients are steering away from invasive treatments and turning to aesthetic professionals to help them achieve the youthful results they are looking for. While they may be used year-round, flower acids, like lotus and hibiscus, are favorites among clients this time of year.
Flower acids can be used in tandem with numerous other pro-youth formulas, to create custom results.
Organic Herbal Peel – for clients with oiler skin conditions, this is an ideal treatment as the Italian Herbal Peel balances excess oil production, while the Hibiscus Peel stimulates cellular turnover and healing. White Lotus Peel – a beautiful treatment for brightening, exfoliation, eliminating bacteria, and delivering anti-inflammatory support. To enhance the results, some treatments may be used in combination with other advanced modalities like microdermabrasion. This season, get clients in the springtime mood by making renew and re-youth the focus of your spa. This post will provide a look inside the Skin of Color Peel – a treatment designed specifically to support skin of color and decrease the risk of unwanted side effects such as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
Like the Skin of Color Facial, this specialized peel treatment provides a gentle, yet effective approach to addressing the hard-to-treat issues specifically associated with higher Fitzpatricks. To help control the pigment and support overall brightening, this treatment begins with a cleanse using the Skin Brightening Cleanser.
During the peel application the Mint Papaya Enzyme and unique H2O2 Emulsion will soften and digest cells, oxygenate the tissue while loosening surface-trapped debris and toxicity, and continue the brightening and pigmentation control.
Once this combination is removed, the Melanin Suppressant Solution makes a second appearance followed by the Mandelic Arginine Peel to further prevent the formation of damaging radicals.
Our goal is to create a dialogue about how ancestry impacts the skin and mitigate concerns surrounding the various challenges and sensitivities associated with skin of any color. There is often trepidation when it comes to working with skin of varying ancestries in the treatment room for the simple fact that every skin comes with it’s own set of challenges and sensitivities. These were both designed specifically to support skin of color and the sensitivities such as, scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), commonly associated with the skin.
This highly targeted treatment addresses the hard-to-treat issues specifically associated with ethnic skin.
With skin of color, PIH is a common issue, and thus it’s important to support the skin with skin-building ingredients as well as those that inhibit melanin production. To soften cells and remove cellular buildup, the Derma Peel and Mint Papaya Enzyme are combined, creating a wonderful sensation and aroma clients love.
Following the ChronoPeptide A and luscious Milk Mask, the Mandelic Arginine Peel makes a second appearance. To download the step-by-step protocol for Skin of Color Facial click here and for additional information on working with skin of color, see our previous post. Just two decades ago, working with skin of color was unknown territory – and that challenge intrigued me. Cell layers – Thickness and density of some ethnicities will require special attention to remove epidermal layers.
Inflammatory responses – Skins of color have heightened sensitivity to inflammation that may increase susceptibility to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Every ancestry has certain skin challenges specific to it, and this will significantly direct the type of treatment you perform. Black skin – sensitivity to PIH, keloid formation, and pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB). While every client will have different ingredients that work best with their skin type, there are a few intelligent ingredients that generally work with most skins and produce beautiful results.
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) – an essential protein and powerful cell regenerator that supports cell renewal and wound repair. Mandelic acid – this is a safe go-to acid that universally may be used successfully on all skins of color. Daisy flower (bellis perennis) extract – a gentle, yet highly effective natural skin lightener that influences different pathways involved in melanin formation, counteracting age spots and balancing hyperpigmentation. Retinol – a vitamin A derivative that converts to retinoic acid and is a DNA regulator. Melanin suppressants – typically a combination of natural lightening ingredients such as kojic acid, L-arbutin, azelaic acid, L-ascorbic acid.
Thermus thermophilus ferment extract – a deep-sea microorganism used to fight free radicals. Zinc oxide – provides natural sun barrier, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and soothing, healing support. The next blog post will cover two new treatments we’ve created specifically for skin of color. Taking time to reflect and renew will enable you to start the new year off fully charged and inspired. Learn a new skill – why not set the goal to learn a new technique, modality or tool in the treatment room? Do or see something new – this may seem more about personal development, but it inevitably spills over to the professional life as well. Make time to do what you love – recharging your batteries is absolutely essential to being effective in your professional life. This time of year brings so many opportunities to offer clients some very special treatment. The Unwrap & Glow is a progressive peel designed to deliver glowing, pro-youth results without the downtime. The facial starts with two-step preparation using the Milk Plus Cleanser and the holiday Cherry Cleanser, which will polish the skin and envelop the senses in the tantalizing scent of ripe cherries.
To further support the brightening and illuminating properties of the step prior, the Hibiscus Peel will leave the skin radiant, hydrated and rejuvenated. The treatment begins with the tantalizing Cherry Cleanser which provides a deep cleanse while simultaneously polishing the skin.
To awaken the senses following the relaxing massage, whip together the Grape Seed Parfait Mask and Chocolate Antioxidant Mask. Wisp, Bliss, and Enlighten are the three popular shades for lighter Fitzpatrick skin tones.
The mineral crème works well for normal to dry skin because it increases hydration without adding heaviness. For oily skins, the powder is best applied immediately following a daily moisturizer, and Daytime Defense or Sheer Tint Finisher.
Not only does it form differently in different skins, it may also appear in varying degrees of severity. Regardless, it’s something numerous clients struggle with and may, at times, significantly impact the self esteem.
It begins with understanding how scars form and why; then determining the type of scarring you are working with so that you may create a customized treatment. The potential for scarring occurs when the breakout penetrates the skin deeply, damaging the tissue beneath. When you know the level of scarring you are able to determine the best course of treatment. When addressing acne scarring, the ultimate goal is to remove surface cells to allow strengthening and corrective ingredients and oxygen to penetrate the skin.
Microdermabrasion – this is very effective in reducing scars as it removes cells of the stratum corneum allowing other corrective and nourishing ingredients to better penetrate the skin. Microneedling – deeper microneedling procedures work well to remodel scar tissue, but caution must be exercised here. Depending on the client’s skin and severity of scarring, a peel may be combined with microdermabrasion.
For clients on a program to correct scarring, be sure to integrate epidermal growth factors, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and essential fatty acids into their home care system. Starting with the type of scar, then taking into account the client’s specific skin type, and their overall goal will help shape the type of treatment to use. When trying to deliver results for clients, it can be easy to overlook pre- and post-treatments, making the peel or resurfacing treatment the star of the show.
Pigmentation – for clients who may have pigmentation issues, higher Fitzpatricks, or if you are performing a deep peel, using a brightener or tyrosinase inhibitor will help suppress melanin, and may help eliminate post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), as well as brighten overall skin tone. Acne – antibacterial support prior to treatment will not only help eliminate bacteria, but also the potential for excessive purging that occurs with acne skin. Acne scarring – depending on the build-up underneath skin, performing a pre-treatment will help enhance results, however a more aggressive approach is needed. Aging – the right pre-treatment can help stimulate collagen and elastin, and support healing. Sensitive skin – for sensitive, rosacea-prone or thinner skin, a pre-treatment will start the building process, help the epidermis layer loosen, increase energy, and provide anti-inflammatory and antibacterial support. As I mentioned, when performing peels, you are creating an injury to the skin that disrupts the protective barrier resulting in a wound. Pruritus (itching) – post peel itching is common for many skins, not just sensitive skins. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) – this is often caused by picking, so be sure to educate clients about the importance of not picking the skin that is peeling.
Discomfort or pain – this will generally ease after the first 24 hours, however you can support clients with ingredients that will reduce inflammation and provide cooling, soothing relief. While there are other complications that may occur, ingredients that support healing, and provide anti-inflammatory and soothing support will be important components to any post-care system.
Of course there are a variety of factors that come into play here – overall health, stress levels, sun exposure, medications, and the list goes on. One of our educators, Devin Romero, put it best when he said the pigmentation process resembles that of an assembly line.
First a trigger (such as UV exposure) sends a signal to melanocyte-stimulating hormones that the skin is in need of protection. After tyrosine is signaled, the melanocyte cell receives a message to produce pigmentation (melanin).
These melanosomes are then dispersed upward through the granular layer via dendrites to keratinocytes where they form melanin caps, which reduce DNA damage caused by UV exposure.
Common triggers that kick start this cycle include: the sun, inflammation, injury, hormonal changes, friction, medications, aggressive skin care products, an even acne (in the form of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation).
In healthy conditions, the pigmentation that is produced in response to potential damage will eventually diffuse or fade on its own, but in some cases a permanent discoloration can occur.
Luckily there are a number of ingredients that help support the skin and control hyperpigmentation. Bellis perennis flower (daisy flower) – a gentle, natural brightener derived from daisies.
Arbutin (L) – a natural plant-based derivative of hydroquinone (HQ) with tyrosinase abilities.
Kojic acid – derived from Japanese mushrooms, it works to effectively inhibit melanin synthesis. Lactic acid (L) – this keratoyltic AHA has natural brightening abilities, works to smooth skin and improve texture.
Azelaic acid – a grain- and yeast-derived compound, it helps normalize disordered cell growth, provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support, and helps effectively treat acne-related post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Some products to turn to include, the Skin Brightening Cleanser, Brightening Scrub, Brightening Pigment Lotion, Mandelic Arginine Serum, ChronoPeptide A, Naturale Mega Brightening Serum, Skin Brightening Gel, and Daytime Defense SPF 30. In the last post, we covered some of the basics of setting up an Instagram account, and the ins and outs of etiquette on the platform. Instagram is a tremendous platform for building your brand awareness and engaging your customers and loyal fans. In the last post, we covered some of the basics of setting up an Instagram account, and the ins and outs of etiquette on the platform. On Instagramall photos become square so keep that in mind when snapping photos, particularly if you are not taking a photo within the app. Hashtags – using multiple hashtags allows you to reach a broader audience and gain new followers, however when used in excess they can make the post appear messy. Geotagging, whether at your business, or an off-property event, is another great way for people to find your account.
Just as users can use hashtags and geotags to find you, you can do the same to connect with or find current and potential customers in your area. While you don’t have to follow everyone that follows your business, always take the time to interact via replies to comments, likes, etc.
Whatever the reason, there are a few best practices you can implement to help grow your follower count and be sure you are keeping them engaged. If you haven’t set up your account yet, you are in a great position to set a solid foundation to work from.
If using a hashtag for people to submit photos, always ask via a comment on the photo to make sure it’s ok for you to re-share it. Freezing peptides are also known as neurotransmitter peptides and the primary function is to inhibit acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction.
Argireline (acetyl hexapeptide 8) – this peptide effects muscle contraction in the pre-synaptic membrane. Inyline (acetyl hexapeptide 30) – this is a fairly new peptide that specifically targets wrinkle expression through a post-synaptic approach, which means it blocks muscle-specific kinase.
Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate – a small peptide that mimics the polypeptide found in the venom of the Temple Viper.
With these freezing peptides, the message to contract becomes unclear, therefore the action of muscle contraction is weakened and the wrinkle is not formed. They can be found in our Eye Revitalizer, Amino Peptide Serum, Peptide 38, and RA for Men Mineral Freeze.
We will start posting some of these questions on the blog, as they can help many of you no matter where you may be in your practice. Rhonda said: Perfection Clay has sulfur and it will really fire out the pebbly congestion as well as clean up the bacteria and balance oil.
Anne said: Hyaluronic Serum attracts water moisture to the skin and both of your moisturizers focus on hydration.


Liz said: Your client can also pair Cucumber Spritz with the Hyaluronic Serum and that will really help to keep the moisture in the skin, and it is also very refreshing and gives skin a drink of water. I have combined this device with blended enzymes before and, on some clients, gotten mild flaking afterward. Sharon said: I do a basic deep pore facial ($95, no devices) and a customized facial for $125 - $150. I’m curious as to which products would be the best ones to keep on hand for the clients who cannot afford the Minus 10 Collection kit? Anne said: I would say ChronoPeptide A and Peptide 38 would have the most impact, and be sure and have one of the moisturizers. Shannon said: You can carry them all but do different recommendations for each where they start with 3 products instead of 6 and then build the regimen from there (but individually instead of from the box).
Aubree said: I would highly recommend starting with ChronoPeptide A as a corrective truly is a must in every skin care regimen. WHAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING THINGS YOU ENCOUNTERED IN OWNING AND OPERATING YOUR SPA?
What was one of the most challenging things you encountered in owning and operating your spa? Since I had such a passion for the work, what really excited me the most was the change and results I would see with clients. Being able to speak before a large group. I would get so sick to my stomach and almost cancel! Well my role has changed drastically over the last several years, and I now really enjoy watching it all! Betul is our professional Artist that is graduated from Mimar Sinan University department of fine Arts in Istanbul. The patterns are the result of color floated on either plain water or a viscous solution known as size, and then carefully transferred to a sheet of paper (or other surfaces such as fabric).

It is often employed as a writing surface for calligraphy, and especially book covers and endpapers in bookbinding and stationery. By carefully laying the paper over the bath, the floating picture on top of it is readily transferred to the paper; thus, each ebru is a one of a kind print.

There they encounter resident trout and bass a€“ even sunfish, chubs and dace, all keyed into the increasingly plentiful and highly nutritious bounty of salmon eggs. Situated 90A km south-west of Prague at the confluence of four rivers, PlzeA? is first recorded in writings from the tenth century.
That vision was about innovation and creativity within the context of an historical tradition. This is what youa€™ll see in a Sobota binding a€“ exceptional attention paid to context and relationships, using materials and technical means that do indeed function and last. He knew his work was valuable and documented it fastidiously a€“ confident that it would be last. There was, however, nothing about his nationalism that demeaned anybody elsea€™s traditions or origins.
That smallish incident within the parade of American fringe politics elicited an insanely violent level of suppression.
Masaryk a€“ and the cute little girl with a bouquet of flowers, is my mother Eva, at the age of three. Schmidta€™s income from the federal mint far exceeded anybody elsea€™s in the extended family and supported a network of cars, cottages and rent-controlled flats. Schmidt, as he preferred to be called, was a man of conservative demeanor who preferred polite and reserved forms of speech and address. While visiting their unassuming engraver and extending my tourist visa 30 days at a time, I was quietly becoming qualified for life as a counterfeiter a€“ a vocation within which, one is set for life, however it may eventually turn out. Jan allowed several binders to have their way with it a€“ amo boxes for slipcases with shell casings for hinges and so forth.
This next incarnation of our exhibit in PlzeA? was all just a bit more prosaic and provincial. Is it the binding we consider and exhibit a€“ or is the binding there to conserve a text, which is ultimately the point? There are also binders to whom everything else is merely the text block, who care little if it is an offset trade edition or a book made by hand.
The tales therein recorded reflected the accreted wisdom and wit of a people as they retold them across the highlands in modest log cottages after the harvest was in. The way of working belongs to the Sobota vision I addressed earlier a€“ the honor and soul to be found in conscientiously made handcrafts.
I dona€™t feel that accomplished or ready to assume their mantle and yet with every generation that is what must happen. Gravels, with just the right flow of fresh water running up through stones of the right size are but a tiny portion of the riverbed.A  The salmon must struggle past cities and sewer pipes, farms and irrigation systems, dams and turbines, fishermen and waterfalls a€“ just to reach the streams of their birth. Explode Old Istanbul, from the ancient tradition of the Turkish Bath to the Mystic Whirling Dervish, from the Egyptian Spice Market to the trade secrets of the Silk Road linking Europe with China. A I am promoting Lynn's new book, SOULS to KEEP, the cover of which is on the front of our spiffy pink sweat shirts, provided to us by Lynn's guy, David. Apart from the tours in Istanbul, my wife and I visited sites in Cappadocia and near Antalya and all tours were professional, comfortable and informative. Yes, these mass-marketed sensations that promise the world in a bottle, but really only deliver ho-hum results at best, and a mess to clean up at worse, have challenged skin care professionals since the beginning of the profession.
Chances are your clients have inquired about a Rodan and Fields, Arbonne, or Nerium product. For one, representatives who sell them are not required to undergo any professional skin care training.
You understand what makes their skin unique and how different ingredients are either going to work in harmony with their skin or work against it. For instance, you might say something like, “I have researched and selected my retail products very carefully.
As well as the fact that they were developed by a licensed aesthetician with a background in cosmeceuticals. Remember, fad buying and flavors of the month will always exist, and women will always have their eye out for the next thing that promises to turn back the hands of time.
Inevitably, they often do come back with a half empty jar of a product that cost several hundred dollars to show you the culprit behind an undesirable outcome.
The best place to start is by analyzing and detecting patterns in the types of clients you service. For instance, if you have an acne care home system, group a cleanser, corrective, and skin-building and protection formula together. Be sure the area is dust free as this will tend to make clients think the products have been sitting for a while and may not be fresh. This will come naturally following a treatment as you may recommend a home care system to enhance and maintain the desired results. It has to do with the choice of natural ingredients used to elicit color or not using a lot of stabilizers, sometimes it is due to the actives themselves and how they begin to shift over time. With the right blend of flower and other rejuvenating acids, bright, healthy, smooth, and firm skin may be achieved without the down time that comes with invasive treatments.
These non-irritating, yet powerful rejuvenators provide potent re-youth and brightening benefits, protect from free radicals, deliver hydration and antioxidant support.
The Maui Peel, Mandelic Arginine Peel, and Hibiscus Peel stimulate collagen production, hydrate, and reduces the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. The unique combination of rejuvenating flower and wine acids in the Lotus Peel, Apple Wine Peel, and the Vitamin A+ Peptide Peel works to brighten, tighten, and protect the skin from free-radical damage.
Typically enzymes and acids used prior to a microdermabrasion treatment will aid in loosening the cells of the stratum corneum to complete the lifting process, and more effectively smooth and polish the skin.
Remember to always use caution and assess the client’s skin before performing any advanced modalities, especially in tandem with other rejuvenating treatments. And where this is most common is in working with skins of varying ancestries simply because every skin comes with it’s own set of challenges and sensitivities.
However, it’s also all the more reason to seek the proper training to overcome the fear.
To help skincare professionals understand how ancestry impacts the skin, and how to safely and effectively work with all skins to create optimum results.
It will brighten and even the skin ton, smooth and soften rough texture, and improve acne conditions. This is followed by a combination of the Cell Conditioner and Melanin Suppressant Solution as a pre-peel to help prevent PIH, stimulate collagen production, and deliver anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial support. This will stimulate desquamation, smooth the skin, reduce fine lines and uneven pigmentation, and leave the skin absolutely radiant. But being adept in working with skin of any color is a tremendous asset – and that is why we decided to make 2016 the year of colour! This post will cover some of the key components of the Skin of Colour Facial and why certain ingredients were selected. It offers a gentle, yet effective enzymatic exfoliation while infusing the skin with nourishing, corrective support. That is why this treatment begins with a nourishing cleanse using a combination of the Milk Plus and Melanin Suppressant Solution, followed by the Cell Conditioner.
This time, however, it is layered with growth factors (via the Growth Factor Serum Plus), Daytime Defense SPF30, and Hydra Complex. Progressive treatments and corrective facials are generally the best place to start, particularly if there is scarring or hyperpigmentation. Derived from almonds, this antiseptic rejuvenating acid has lightening and restorative properties. It is a relatively safe, low-risk acid, as it is self-neutralizing and produces a drying and lifting effect. It assists in the synthesis of collagen, aids in the formation of blood vessels and encourages healthy cell formation. Look to the Rhonda Allison Melanin Suppressant Solution to brighten the skin, and provide antibacterial and antioxidant support, while minimizing PIH during the peel. While this truly is a personal journey for every individual, there are a few things you might consider incorporating that that can help you have a stand out year – personally and professionally.
You might seek out educational webinars (the ASCP is a good resource for these), industry conferences like Face & Body or IECSC, continued education courses, or training sessions in your local area (often these are provided by product manufacturers). Your network can be large or small, but it will only be effective if you work to strengthening it.
New experiences help us grow, widen our views, or even pick up new approaches to something. And we know one thing that might help fulfill all of the above mentioned…the RA Symposium. Though the season is filled with merriment and joy, it’s also not without its stresses. It features the limited edition Cherry Cleanser, a triple pre-peel and the illuminating Hibiscus Peel. Following the prep, a three-step process using the Cell Conditioner, Liquid Enzyme Peel and Melanin Suppressant Solution will start the rejuvenation process and pave the way for the Hibiscus Peel that follows. It offers relaxation, soothing support, and hot and cold therapy sensations, and will leave the skin absolutely radiant.
During the glimmering enzyme polish step, the Liquid Enzyme Peel and Skin Brightening Enzyme will brighten the skin, soften and digest cells, and aid in the suppression of melanin. Start with the Mandelic Arginine Peel gently massaged into the skin to start the gentle rejuvenation and cellular repair. As such, we wanted to provide some tips and best practices for color matching and application, so you can give your clients the gift of glowing, radiant skin this season. We recommend inquiring about the client’s ancestry, as well as analyzing their pigment. Deciding whether the crème or the powder is right for your client is a matter of hydration level in the skin.
It also creates a beautiful, vibrant glow when applied with our specialized brush in a circular motion while gently pressing. With proper shade selection and application, they will be hooked on the results and the benefits it provides.
There may be depressed scars, also known as pits, or they may take the shape of raised scars known as hypertrophic. For instance, those who have inflammatory acne (cyst and nodules) and particularly if they delay treatment, or if the individual picks or squeezes the acne, may experience scarring after the acne clears.
However, aesthetic professionals also have a number of non-invasive tools at their disposal to help clients smooth the scarring.
Overall, modalities that work to smooth acne-scarred skin in the treatment room include peels, micro-needling, and microdermabrasion. The peel is done after the microdermabrasion, for better absorption of the acid and deeper exfoliation.
Pre- and post-treatments absolutely impact results, however, and should be a part of every peel. This is an opportunity to create a truly custom treatment based on your client’s skin care needs and desired results. Supporting the skin through the trauma will ensure proper healing and reduce the probability of complications. Hydrocortisone and willow herb, a natural cortisone, will help soothe and calm the skin during the peeling process. If clients are particularly prone to PIH, send them home with epidermal growth factors to support the healing and repair process. However, you must be able to read the client’s skin and take into account the type of treatment to customize a post-treatment plan specific to their needs. DNA damage to the skin cells, caused by UV exposure, hormonal changes, certain medications, and other health issues, result in the steady distribution of melanin. Since it is typically more stable and less sensitizing than HQ it’s a great alternative for those with sensitivities. The goal is to maintain optimum health, or restore it to optimum health so it may properly control pigmentation.
In this post, I’ll go over best practices for hashtag usage, photos, and making yourself more discoverable.

In other words, these peptides inhibit muscle contraction, which is beneficial when correcting the appearance of mimic wrinkles, which may become deeper over time. It is one of the several neurotransmitters in the automatic nervous system that aids muscle contraction. In other words it decreases excessive neurotransmitter release and overproduction of catechomlomines, which are derived from tyrosine. Using the example above, this would be like you covering your ears while someone is talking to you. This is a tri-peptide that targets neuromuscular activity to smooth existing lines and wrinkles, and prevent future ones from appearing. I like mixing a little Milk Mask or spot treating with Perfection Clay and using Rosemary Basil Mask everywhere else.
She purchased, for the first time, Citrus Gel, Hyaluronic Serum and Ultra Hydration moisturizer. Sounds like your client is low in lipids or oil, so I recommend adding Grape Seed Hydrating Serum or Drops of Essence to her regimen. I use a skin scrubber to remove enzymes and after that I do a Mandelic Arginine Peel then extractions, followed by a mask and a customize blend of serums. Our Peptide 38, Hyaluronic Serum, Antioxidant Complex Serum, AGE-lesswould all be nice options, especially for anti aging.
We have so many choices in the moisturizer category, so choose the ones that best fit your client's needs.
I agree with Shannon in the thought that you want all of them in individual sizes for retail. This was more from the back bar venue, as I wanted treatments that would impact the skin in a very positive way and make noticeable changes.

When acne, aging, dehydration, and hyperpigmentation occur for different reasons in different skin types, these products simply can’t be expected to live up to their promises. They have to make these less active so that anyone can simply open the package and start using it without any sort of guidance by a skin care professional. Skin care is an emotionally driven purchase – most want to look better, younger, fast.
What are the common skin challenges they have and what are their expectations for their skin?
Too sparse of a display may convey these are the last few stragglers that couldn’t sell and too many of one item may seem like no one is buying it! Or you might group by theme, such as all green tea-based products or a special summer skin care regimen together. But older product that has clearly outlived its shelf life, particularly if it is changed in appearance will just psychologically cause the client to feel as if there is a problem.
We are in such a high-touch industry and clients want to see, touch, smell, and feel a product before they commit to buying.
In other instances, you might offer a quick skin assessment then offer a customized system or educate clients on specific ingredients, what they do and why they may be effective for their particular skin.
The Melanin Suppressant Solution brighten, while Seam Gems and Omega 6 EFA support the rebuild of healthy, strong cells.
Using them after will allow for lifting of cells that still adhere, prompting the enzyme or acid to work harder and enhance the rejuvenation. After all dexterity in the treatment room is ultimately what will help set your practice apart.
Send clients home with care instructions and some skin-building formulas like the Hyaluronic Serum, MVC Serum, and Daytime Defense SPF30. This combination works to safely prep the skin, deliver antioxidant support, inhibit melanin production, and stimulate collagen activity. Following the enzymatic exfoliation, the Mandelic Arginine Peel will further prevent the formation of damaging radicals. Growth factors are essential to wound healing and the rebuilding process, and the Daytime Defense SPF30 will protect the beautiful work you just did. Progressive peelings and corrective facials are best to start with, and use extreme caution with microdermabrasion.
We offer a number of webinars, seminars at conferences, our 90 Day Live series, and in 2016 we’re also introducing our RA Symposium. You might even consider adding an area of specialization, such as working with men or skin of color or oncology patients.
You might consider traveling to a foreign destination, reading a book outside of your norm, shadowing another aesthetician who operates in a different area or who specializes in different modality than you, attending a different conference, the list goes on. That might be through meditation, yoga, being in nature, or simply reading a book – whatever it is that brings you bliss. There will be plenty of opportunities for learning new skills, strengthening your network, and you will most certainly be a part of a new experience (not to mention being surrounded by breathtaking nature).
On top of it all, there is often a near endless list of parties and gatherings to attend over the course of the month. Using the flavors of the season, you can give your clients a bit of holiday decadence, and indulge the skin and the senses…without the calories. At this point the cold and hot therapy come in with chilled ice globes gently rolled over the skin, followed by a hot compress wrapped around the face and neck. Getting a clear picture of what influences their skin tone is key, as the pigments in the RA Illuma Colour will blend with the individual’s tone to create a true color match. This process stimulates collagen production, however if too little or too much is produced, a scar will form. In most cases it will require creating a treatment plan, one that involves several treatments and proper home care in between.
Note this requires very specific training and caution is advised when combining with acids.
Before they begin a painting, they prime the canvas, and once they’ve finished they seal it to preserve their masterpiece. Ingredient suggestions: bellis perennis flower, arbutin (L), kojic acid, and lactic acid (L).
I should note too, a peel should never be performed if you are not prepared to treat the complications of that peel. The proper pre- and post-care treatment will be essential to creating the best possible outcome and that will keep your clients coming back for more. These, as you may know, produce melanin – an action that occurs in the granular layer. As excess melanin is produced, and dispersing of these pigments is interrupted, hyperpigmentation forms.
Keep in mind, though Instagram allows Facebook sharing, currently it’s only to personal accounts. This will ensure you keep your photo description short, clean and concise, while still benefitting from the search benefits that come with hashtags. If you can have someone else snap a photo of you and client, always opt for that over the selfie.
Since freezing peptides suppress acetylcholine, they produce a similar effect as Botox and other dermal fillers.
As one of our educators put it, this would be like you covering your mouth as you were speaking to someone else. To help answer these and get a dialogue going we created a group on Facebook – the Rhonda Allison Educational Forum.
As I searched for skin care to compliment the services and different skin types, I began to fill the gaps with my own formulas with the help of very astute chemists and formulators.

MARBLING APPLIED TO PAPER PATTERNS,Marbling is similar to cooking; it is impossible to give the exact recipe. Turkish Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to marble or other stone, hence the name.

She is professional in Ottoman Calligraphy - Tile Design & Turkish Motives - Ottoman Paper Marbling. And they may have even come back to you with their tale between their legs after having dismal results.
The way around this is through education, realizing that it is a huge disservice to not offer home care products to your clients, and understanding a few fundamentals of an effective retail display. This, of course, will allow you to determine which essential items, correctives and skin-nourishing products to keep on the shelf. Some of this will come through the treatment you just performed on their skin, but it is nice for them to be able to pick it up and try it.
Ancestry plays a major role in how the skin will respond to certain topicals and treatments.
You can do this with a simple email, a quick phone call, a handwritten note, sharing their posts on social media, or even attending community or industry events and conferences. Finish with the Cucumber Spritz, Peptide Primer and RA Illumi Colour Natural Mineral Crème to send clients off with hydrated, radiant, and glowing skin. In the week following the treatment, clients may also use a retinal like the ChronoPeptide A or Salicylic Serum to continue the gentle exfoliation and rebuilding. The skin, much like a canvas, needs to be primed to stimulate the rejuvenation process and prepare the skin for what is to come.
It is also ok to recommend Tylenol or Advil, if needed, and if there aren’t any allergies.
This is a natural and necessary process as pigments give us skin color and also provide a unique defense system against UV radiation. Be sure clients are regularly exfoliating, boosting the skin’s strength with nutrient-rich and skin-building ingredients, and protecting it with a good mineral-based sun protection.
This wonderful community has become a place not only for Q&A, but also for collaboration and sharing amongst aesthetic professionals.

Murphy states that 90% of individuals polled have said they would prefer to die at home, surrounded by their loved ones. Murphy offers a view of death as something other than a "medical event" that need not take place in a sterile hospital and that the time before dying and death itself can be an important part of living in which closure, love, and forgiveness can take place and plans for what the dying person wishes must be put into writing for doctors, other caregivers, and family members.A  The book's scope is far wider than these elements in taking a whole new look at dying and death.

Nationally, there are 85.6 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women and the birthrate is approximately 53% women over men. They have the a€?TV-ADa€? looks, drugs, drinking, sex, and instant communication (cell and text). Some people give up on themselves and become self destructive with over eating and drinking or hibernation.

From a mana€™s perspective, if a man is looking for a quick date, sex, or just a temporary girlfriend he will frequent a bar. If a man is looking for a long term loving relationship or wife, he will look around church, a library (or book store), coffee bars, or social groups.
Dona€™t settle on things that go against you conscience whether it is with yourself or a mate.
People with multiple divorces fail in relationships, drinkers are good drinkers, abusers (physical or mentally) are just abusers and players, and cheaters are cheaters.
People rarely change and never enter a relationship with the thought that you can later on change that person to your expectations.
If a person you care for ever poses this statement ----- A a€? If you want me (or love me) you need to do a€?this or thata€™.a€? ----- then walk away and dona€™t look back.

The following religions or faiths consider Jesus as an enlightened spiritual teacher: Jehovaha€™s Witnesses, Mormonism, Unification Church , Christian Science, A? of all Wicca, New Age, Nation of Islam, Bahaa€™i World Faith, Hare Krishna, Hinduism, some of Judaism, and Islam. It is funny that all these listed above recognize him as a great spiritual teacher but do not follow His teachings.
The other half of Wicca, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, and Buddhists either do not mention Him or He is not important to their way of thinking. Malm's Grief Retreat following the death of my mother in 2002, and found it to be extraordinarily helpful in my own grief process. Genesis Chapter #1 in part of verse 2 says, a€?and the Spirit of God was moving over the watera€?. He won trophies for the best in class in New York State for horseshoes and archery (before compound bows) for several years running. He hunted and fished and always, it seemed, brought back his limit no matter what game, fish, or bird was in season.
He joined the Navy Sea Bees in WW2 and ended up getting drafted in the Marine Corps on an Island in the Pacific during the conflict.
The only way there is through His Son Jesus so I accept Him as my Lord and Savior and try my best to follow His ways. A ====================================================== ==============================================Note: If you have not seen the movie "Left Behind" with Kirk Cameron, now would be the time.
Well to begin with; this promise from God is only for believers and followers of Jesus Christ.
Paul was talking about believers and inserted the condition of a€?for those who love Goda€?.
You see, when you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness and confess to Him your sins --------- you are washed clean with the blood of Christ. However, sometimes you carry the baggage of the memories of those sins in your mind and heart. This verse in Romans assures you that your guilt is unjustified because God will make it turn out in the end for good.
Jesus did not promise that this life would be easy but that He would walk through those troubled times with you.
Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience.
I do believe that God is making this bad thing turn out to be good and I think He has a better job for me in the near future.
If you believe in God and love Him and believe in His promise, these too will turn out for the better. And leta€™s not forget that even though what his brothers did was a€?wronga€?, God made it into good when Joseph forgave them and helped them. His promise does not make wrong right but makes it turn out into something good for his glory, for us believers.
We know that Jesus will walk with us through the valley but God will get us to the mountain top when we get through it. I am sure there are many stories out there of how this verse helped many people weather their storms. Kendall============================================================Pastor Pop-Pop July 31, 2010. Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth. Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. It tells us His personality, words, likes, dislikes, rules, commands, pleasures, and all the things he has done.
So any god or image of him that does not conform to or match the one described in the Bible (the word of God) is not the God of Israel that we are to worship. Let us be clear that making images of anything is not a violation of the commandment but actually worshiping it as a god. Some churches within the body of Christ have pictures or statues of saints or even Jesusa€™ mother. That is not a violation unless the statue (or the person) a€?itselfa€? is being worshiped as a god or the statue is believed to have some sort of power within itself. Wearing a Jewish star or a cross is also not a violation unless the emblem itself is worshiped. If they are decorations that is OK but if you actually place or believe some hope or faith of luck in them, it is a violation of the commandment. People now seem to create their own god to worship in a€?their own minda€? and not within the scope of the Word of God (the Bible). The one I hear the most is, a€?I am a good person so that is all that is needed to go to Heaven and be saved.a€? That is not what the Bible tells us.
Matthew 7:21 (ESV) says, a€?Not everyone who says to me a€?Lord Lord,a€™ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.a€? What is the will of the Father?
People go around saying god is this or god is that or that is a€?not what I believe ina€™ but if their beliefs are not in line with the Bible, they are in violation of the first commandment.
God is OK with working on a Sunday (or having your place of business open), God is OK with Homosexual and Gay behavior, I dona€™t have to go to church and worship Him, I dona€™t have to give, I dona€™t have to forgive everyone, it is OK to kill unborn babies, He is OK with pagan rituals, I can be rude to people, God did not make the earth a€“ and on and on and on.
The pastor said that this church was saying the Holy Spirit told them this was OK but another church said that the Holy Spirit was against this and yet another one had a different view point from the Holy Spirit. We all violate them in some way or another but that is why Jesus died on the cross to wash us clean in His blood and absolve us of our faults.
He scribed it on stone tablets and gave them to Moses on the mountain top to give to His people.
That is the translation that she likes to use.===============================================================Thou shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous Goda€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦. Leta€™s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to). Have you ever created another God in your mind or worshiped another god of a different religion or faith?
Jesus said that if you even lust in your heart (or mind) for another that you violate this commandment. Covet is defined in the NIV dictionary as: To want for yourself something that belongs to another person.
Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment.
If you believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven of your sins and you are washed in His blood clean and white as snow. A Timothy McVey the mastermind on the Oklahoma bombing defied God and declared that he alone was the a€?master of his destinya€?. A ==============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop August 24, 2010. Having a good relationship with your spouse, family, friends, or co-workers is usually based on a good two way conversational attitude. To render Him praise and glory through prayer, actions, good deeds, following His laws and commandments, and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He knows what we need before we ask but He likes to hear it from us also with some praise and worship attached. Your Mom knows you need food and gives you healthy meals but approaching her and asking for a snack also tells her you would like some cheese doodles too. Prayers can be from a book, made up by you, from the Bible, or just general conversation between you and God. They can be on your knees by your bed, in Church, or just during every day activities or work. I try to concentrate not on an earthly or worldly fixture or thing but temporarily close my eyes (not while driving) or look up when I talk to Him. I find one (or a paragraph or verse) that I derive comfort from and say it as a special prayer to the Lord.
What can flesh do to me?Psalm 121(NLT): I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there? Go to a good book store and page through some and see which ones are comfortable for you personally. They are good Bibles but one is paraphrased and one is in a so called modern language that, for me, does not read real well. I highly recommend The New Living Translation (NLT), The New Century Version (NCV), or the New American Bible (NAB). The first two are used a lot with Contemporary Christian Churches and the third contains extra books as it was designed to meet the needs of Catholic Christians. I also like the Good News Translation (GNT).A It is important that you like it and are comfortable with it.
