Talking about Colorism Out in the Open
For centuries, there has been a divide within the black race. That divide is of complexion; dark skin blacks and light skin blacks. This divide can be referenced as far back as slavery. As we all have been taught, the lighter skin blacks were hailed worthy to work inside the kitchens or waiting on the slave owners, where dark skin blacks were used in the cotton and tobacco fields. That was the very beginning of a social divide that remains today.On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to tackle the topic of “Skin Bleaching”. Thanks to our listener and friend, Karla G, we are bringing this topic to the forefront with the questions of why are so many dark skin blacks willing to put their physical well-being at risk for the sake of having lighter skin. And, is there a cultural disconnect that comes along with skin bleaching? Join us on Friday, February 8, 2013, where we’re going to dig deep into the topic of SKIN BLEACHING: Hating the Skin You’re In. 8pm PST/ 10pm CST/ 11pm ESTCall (646)200-3148 to listen or voice your views.

On this International women’s day we would like to spot light the dangerous trend of skin bleaching among African women, and even the men. Skin bleaching – the practice where dark skinned people use whitening and various exfoliation creams to lighten their skin color is an alarming trend that is plaguing people of native African communities around the globe. The negative medical consequences of severe burns, damage and likelihood of developing skin cancer does not deter people from this practice which leads us to believe that the problem runs deeper than just a poor trend choice. Studies have shown that people repeatedly make such poor choices to secure acceptance, love and regard from their society revealing a deeper problem of low self esteem, self and worth. Today we will explore the origins of skin color, the clinical functions of skin, how the concept of “colorism “ evolved and trends that lead to lighter skin being perceived as better than darker skin. We will examine the dangerous trend of skin bleaching and the dangerous consequences that may arise thereof. Finally we will look at ways we can teach our children some self esteem and self worth.
Please call with your stories and comments on this dangerous trend of skin bleaching across the African continent. We would be glad to speak with you.

Rosie is going to discuss the many benefits of the Yarrow and Chamomile plant in health and beauty care. Yarrow has many names, including Nosebleed, Milfoil, Thousand-leaf, Soldier’s Woundwort, Devil’s Nettle, Devil’s Plaything, Bad Man’s Plaything and Yarroway. Don’t let the tough names scare you, though– yarrow is a gentle herb.
Yarrow is a perfect ingredient for cleansers especially Yarrow hydrosol which is a very gentle skin toner, especially those aimed at oily skin. It’s great for tonic, especially due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s even used in cosmetics as a soothing agent.
Chamomile is an age-old medicinal herb known in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Chamomile's popularity grew throughout the Middle Ages when people turned to it as a remedy for numerous medical complaints including asthma, colic, fevers, inflammations, nausea, nervous complaints, children's ailments, skin diseases and cancer. As a popular remedy, it may be thought of as the European counterpart of the Chinese tonic Ginseng.

from the archives of Austin's premier lifestyle radio program, Living Wealthy Radio with Teresa Kuhn...
Her own struggles with cystic acne were the motivation for entrepreneur Ann Webb's desire to develop alternative methods for helping people have more vibrant, beautiful skin.
Ann's passion led to research and educate herself about every kind of skin treatment that was available, including specialized, hands-on acne protocols developed by Dr. Brent Schillinger.
Ann went on to work for the PGA Spa, The Florida Center of Cosmetic Surgery, and to serve as Cosmetic Director for the Austin Plastic Surgery Center while maintaining an esthetics studio in her home. Developing a product line came about when she recognized a need for affordable, clean products for her local esthetics clients. She had already contributed to the development of two other product lines, and was ready to put more than 10 years of research and labor into a line of her own.
Ann envisioned products that would be affordable, simple to use, and contain the best pharmaceutical-grade ingredients available. Together with her best friend, business developer Joanna Marceaux, she developed Skin By Ann Webb, a company that sells natural, effective skin products worldwide.
Ann opens up about how she channeled her passion for skin care into a multi-million dollar business; her struggles and the valuable life lessons she learned on the way to success.

People have been using activated charcoal for thousands of years. In World War I, activated charcoal was used in gas masks to prevent soldiers from being poisoned by chemical exposure, and it has been used to treat water (making it tasteless and odorless) since 1930.
Until a few months ago, I really was not aware of the enormous benefits of activated charcoal (also known as activated carbon). However, I soon learned that this substance provides a number of amazing benefits.
