Monday Beauty Poll

Monday, October 15th, 2012
By Glinda

It was almost a three-way tie! 33% of you said that a french manicure is a timeless classic, while the exact same amount said it was never all that to begin with.  32% said it was passe.  So, if you add up the two “negative” categories, I’m afraid it isn’t looking too good for the french manicure.

Would you be willing to try the candy supplement beloved of Brazilian supermodels?  Beauty candy, that is? These “candies” contain vitamins and collagen, for starters.

The Vitamin Firestorm

Hyperbole much, Glinda?

All right, fine.  So there is no vitamin firestorm started by my poll yesterday, but I deliberately chose the topic to get some discussion going.

My husband and I have had many disagreements about vitamins/supplements, which he takes fairly regularly.  I’ve told him that for someone who does not believe in global warming (or my preferred term “climate change”) because there isn’t enough “proof” he sure does place a lot of faith in the unregulated dietary supplement industry.  He shoots back with the fact that even though I don’t regularly take vitamins, I did take pre-natal vitamins during both my pregnancies, so obviously I must have believed they did something.

Usually we just call it a draw.

As for some resources (as requested) about vitamins/vitamin supplements and how they work, try some of these:

An article from WebMD.

This paper from a researcher at Vanderbilt University.

This interesting article.

And this one from The Mayo Clinic.

An overview of vitamins and how they work.
