Responding to specific beauty concerns and needs, Clarins skin care products for over forty-years have developed ground-breaking treatments, promoting the youthful vitality and radiance of the skin. If you don’t believe that people worry a lot, and I mean A LOT, about their body image and spend a lot of time desperately trying to fit into their social group; then here’s a coaching exercise to help you research the underlying psychological dynamics that can be done in any mall, school, church or workplace in America. Be very discreet as you pay attention to what factors seem to be the most are important to the people around you, and what is commonly accepted as being ‘cool’ by the majority of those in that particular environment. Your skin is the largest living organ of your body and many cancer-causing chemicals can be absorbed through it into the bloodstream. Research at the University of Pittsburgh shows that twice as much toxic chemicals can enter our body through the skin as through the intestine. Cosmetic and personal care products are most certainly absorbed through the skin. Massage body with mustard oil 10 minutes before bath, and then take a warm bath. Your skin will be moisturized and smooth. In the Lab, we use a Corneometer device to gauge products’ moisturization capabilities, and we also send moisturizers out to a panel of consumer testers to get feedback on absorption, texture, and scent. Products are masked or placed in unmarked containers to remove any brand biases. Our picks for the best moistuirizers, below, are top-tested by the GH Beauty Lab, backed by our Good Housekeeping Seal , or reviewer favorites with thousands of rave reviews. In colonial times some literature was published in regional languages, the most being in Javanese, but this was stopped after Indonesian independence. The earliest official publishing house for Indonesian literature is Balai Pustaka, founded in Batavia in 1917. National culture was expressed and, in some ways formed, through spoken Malay-Indonesian (understood by many people) and newspapers, pamphlets, poetry, novels, and short stories for those who could read. By the time of independence, literary production was not great, but it has grown considerably since the 1950s. The literary tradition is now rich, but one should note that reading for pleasure or enlightenment is not yet part of the culture of average urban Indonesians and plays little if any part in the life of village people. Indonesia has made literacy and widespread elementary education a major effort of the nation, but in many rural parts of the country functional literacy is limited. For students to own many books is not common; universities are still oriented toward lecture notes rather than student reading; and libraries are poorly stocked.
