Unusual Tie Clips: the Terrain of Men’s Accessories

Even fashion-clueless men cannot resist the allure of jewelry; they still have a touching weakness for the shimmering precious metals and sparkling gemstones, though probably hidden deep within. Sometimes they inadvertently reveal their passion with the flashy watch, diamond studs, or some really unusual tie clips. Tie clips or bars, however, are inherently male accessories. They clip horizontally across a man's tie and hold it to his shirt, stabilizing it while also assuring that the skinny part will not emerge from behind the wide part. Luckily, modern designers do not neglect tie clips when working on the look of the present-day gentleman, and make them into a functional and sophisticated accessory.

Audrey Hepburn – Lady By Birth and Nature

There are cases when the person comes from the aristocratic family though their actions and life style have nothing to do with the elite refinement. And on the contrary, people whose ancestors come from medium class or even the marginal but the person proves to belong to the high class of the society with all they do and feel. And again, we face people who are lucky enough to be born to the reputed and ancient nobility and who appear to be the genuine aristocrats. They treat evenly favorably to people from various levels of society. They are willing to give a hand to those who are in need and act as the model of worthy behavior to follow. Yet, we are blessed to enjoy such a talented and unique actress and a beautiful woman as Audrey Hepburn.

Hyaluronic Acid: A Key to Proper Hydration

Saturday, 24 April 2010

hyaluronic acidChemically, hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide of Glycosaminoglycans family, which is part of animals' and human beings' skin. It is contained in joints fluid, in ligaments, and in vitreous body, umbilical cord, shark's skin, and in some bacteria cells. Hyaluronic acid synthesis in derma and epidermis starts slowing down as early as 15 years of age and accelerates under the influence of different factors.

In fact, hyaluronic acid can absorb more than 1,000 times its weight in water allowing it to hydrate the skin and other areas that it contacts. In addition to its hyper-hydration properties, hyaluronic acid is also known for its role in wound healing and in the prevention of scarring, the reason why it is highly valued in cosmetology and aesthetic surgery. Hyaluronic acid helps our skin to maintain its elasticity, hydration and firmness levels which is essential for young and radiant skin. Compared to other moisturizers, hyaluronic acid has got a number of advantages. Hyaluronic acid has the highest hygroscopic property (the ability to absorb moisture) compared to other most common moisturising agents such as glycerine and sorbitol. At the same time, unlike glycerine, it stays active in dry atmosphere.

Hyaluronic acid is justly called a molecular sponge sometimes. In cosmetics hyaluronic acid (or its natrium salt, natrium hyalurate) is mainly used as a moisturising component and is considered one of the most «pleasant» cosmetic components. At present hyaluronic acid and its salts are used in moisturising creams, lipsticks and lip balms, anti cellulite lotions, eyelid gels, sun tan lotions, and anti-inflammatory lotions, wound healing and anti-sun repairing lotions. It is compatible with skin, does not cause allergic reactions or irritations. Cosmetics which contain hyaluronic acid soften, moisturise and protect the skin, noticeably changing its appearance. High efficiency of cosmetic products using hyaluronic acid is due to its property to evenly distribute on skin surface, forming a light coat which actively absorbs moisture from the air. This facilitates the increase of free water in corneal layer as well as creates «extra moisture» effect, decreasing water evaporation from the skin surface.

The results of scientific researches show that hyaluronic acid does not only serve the purpose of moisturizing. It is supposed that it also stimulates epidermal cells migration and decreases collagen production. Besides, polymerous net, which is formed on the skin surface by hyaluronic acid, allows biologically active substances that are part of cosmetics to stay longer on it. This makes it more likely for the biologically active substances to penetrate into epidermis. Hyaluronic acid decreases free radicals formation. Being a natural UV filter, it prevents hard UV radiation penetration in the range of 280-320 nm.

In cosmetology, hyaluronic acid is commonly used in the production of preparations for mesotherapy and contour aesthetic correction. These preparations and injectable material perfectly moisturize skin, replenish the low level of hyaluronic acid in the skin, and promotes rapid regeneration and healing of tissues. The course consisting of several mesotherapy procedures will make your skin fresh, young and radiant again and help to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural component, over time it dissolves in your body and to maintain the achieved effect you need to repeat the rejuvenating procedure from time to time. As a solution of this problem many professionals offer chemically stabilized hyaluronic acid. However, it's compatibility with the skin has not be fully confirmed yet. Sometimes you have to choose between the long-term effect of hyaluronic acid preparations and their assumed compatibility.

Hyaluronic acid is recommended for high quality moisturising gels and creams though it can practically be used in any cosmetic products, including make-up. The reason for this is due to the skin's chronological aging, which we can do nothing about. Internal, chronological aging is largely a consequence of genetics and affects skin all over the body.
