1. Perfumes made of oils tend to have a natural fragrance when compared to alcohol based alternatives. In fact, these scents have a very discernable and pure fragrance and they are rarely overpowering.
2. Oil based scents tend to last longer on your skin when compared to alcohol flavored ones since alcohol tends to evaporate very fast. These perfumes smell very strong when you first supply them but the scent goes away very fast on account of evaporation. If you do not get a lot of opportunities to touch your perfume up then it makes a lot of sense to use an oil based one.
3. If you wear an oil based fragrance then it will be very mild. This means that there is very little chance of irritating the nasal membranes of a person who has a sensitive nose. It also means that you won't have to worry that your perfume has entered a room long before you do.
4. Many people are allergic to alcohol on their skin and therefore they cannot use perfumes that contain this ingredient. Alcohol also has a drying effect on the skin; it is best avoided if the weather is very hot and dry.
5. It is an interesting paradox that an alcohol based perfumes is very costly even though it is mass produced. Most of the biggest names in this industry do use alcohol and their products are priced very high. Natural perfumes, on the other hand, are very affordable.
While most of the perfumes available these days are made of alcohol, it is very easy to find products that do not contain this ingredient. The growing demand for fragrances that do not contain oil ensures that many famous perfume companies have started offering them in addition to their regular products. Be sure that you try out different options before you select the right one. It is also important to buy perfumes from a reliable company that uses high quality ingredients.

The problem is that not everyone is born with the perfect body, and as a result many women who feel uncomfortable with their bodies resort to seeking surgical enhancements, in order to change the way that they and others see themselves.

Today the number of women undergoing breast augmentation surgery has largely increased, in contrast to the individuals pursuing this type of surgery two to three decades ago. This is because the majority of women seeking plastic surgery or rather breast augmentation are pursuing it in order to conform to the ideals of an ideological women, in today's self-absorbed society.

However many women the world over, who wish to undergo plastic surgery are often concerned about the repercussions that augmentation surgeries may have on the bodies.

Botox. Botox. Botox. The word has hurled itself into our collective consciousness with all guns blazing over the last ten years or so. It also provokes strong opinions. Some see it as nothing short of a miracle while others remain wary and avoid it at all costs.
However, until relatively recently Botox has had all its eggs firmly in the 'anti-aging' basket. It looks like that is all about to change.
During the past year a number of studies have been undertaken which have been concerned with documenting the use of Botox for chronic pain relief. The results are remarkable and broad reaching.
Now, some of you may remember this is not a totally new theory. Anybody recall how a number of 'A-listers' started having the balls of their feet injected with Botox and filler in order that they could wear stratospheric heels all day/night with NO pain? In fact it became known as a 'Loub Job'... Now, when you bare in mind that the average price for a pair of Laboutin's would cost more than the treatment itself it doesn't seem so silly, does it?
Anyhow, I digress, as these new findings have absolutely nothing to do with vanity or looking pretty. OK, it has a little to do with looking pretty, and a whole lot to do with feeling ready to take on the challenges of a new day. Those of you that suffer from migraine headaches will understand what I mean. A migraine is a type of headache that may begin as a dull ache and then turn into a constant, throbbing pain, often felt on one side of the head. When you have a migraine, you may be sensitive to light and sound and experience nausea and/or vomiting. Even the tiniest chink of light escaping through the curtains is enough to force you to crawl to bed and curl up like a foetus under the duvet for hours on end.
A study in Scotland has shown that injecting Botox into various points in the head, shoulders and neck paralysis certain muscles, which in turn stops the pain signals from reaching the brain.
The results showed that what amounted to 19.1 days of migraines in a month was reduced by 8.2 days when using Botox. Further research is now being undertaken to determine how Botox may be able to replace steroids in certain conditions.
Furthermore, it may provide valuable pain relief for those with arthritis. Cancer sufferers could also benefit from having an alternative option, when morphine is becoming unbearable or addictive. With each treatment lasting around 4 months it is cost effective and could, ultimately, save the NHS millions.
Importantly, the FDA has just approved Botox for treatment of chronic migraines. This treatment is meant for those patients who experience 15 or more headache days per month with each headache lasting for 4 or more hours.
The injections would be given at 12-week intervals with a total of 31 injections in 7 specific sites over the head and neck. You no longer have to suffer hours of excruciating pain.
