Friday’s Fabulous Person:

Ricky Gervais

Gervais is a fervent supporter of animal rights, and has been a fan of wildlife documentaries since he was a child. He has spoken out against fox hunting and bullfighting, and wrote to Gordon Brown urging him to stop the use of black bear fur as caps for the Foot Guards.

Funnyman Ricky Gervais is celebrated a victory recently after a ban on using wild animals in circuses was passed in Britain.

The comedian and longtime animal rights activist has been outspoken in pressuring government officials into outlawing tigers, lions, elephants and other exotic creatures from the big top.

Gervais took to his Twitter.com page to share his delight, writing, “We won… Congrats Twonks (fans). A victory for compassion.”
Sir Paul McCartney also threw his support behind the legislation, while American stars including Pink, Demi Moore and Olivia Munn have helped spearhead a campaign to eliminate elephants from U.S. circuses.

Gervais is also against animal testing. On July 30, 2012 he spoke on behalf of HSI, the Humane Society International/UK branch, slamming cosmetic companies for “Testing on Animals and Abandoning Ethics in Order to Sell Products in China.”

Gervais is speaking out in support of the Humane Society International’s “Be Cruelty-Free Campaign” to put an end to global cosmetics animal testing, especially within China, where the practice is often a requirement by law.

Like me, most people will be shocked to learn that testing cosmetics on animals is often still a legal requirement in China. By law, rabbits must have cosmetic chemicals dripped in their eyes or spread over their sensitive skin, causing sores and bleeding. It makes me really angry that this is still going on, and it makes me particularly angry that some previously cruelty-free companies are abandoning their principles and returning to animal testing in order to profit from the Chinese market.

Included in the companies Leaping Bunny.org publicly removed from its list of cruelty free companies were Yves Rocher, L’Occitane, Mary Kay and Caudalie for having operations in or exporting to China. However, Urban Decay, who was removed, then reinstated to the watchdog’s list, was praised for its decision to not sell products within China.

According to the press release, via HSI, good news may be on the horizon for China as it is looking into non-animal test methods thanks to a Europe-wide ban issued for 2013 on selling newly animal-tested cosmetics.

Ricky Gervais urges consumers to support the cause and sign the Be-Cruelty Free Pledge as well as use cruelty-free products.

What is your acne telling you?
1 & 2: Digestive System — Eat less processed or junk food, reduce the amount of fat in your diet, step up water intake and opt for cooling things like cucumbers.
3: Liver — Cut out the alcohol, greasy food and dairy. This is the zone where food allergies also show up first, so take a look at your ingredients. Besides all this, do 30 minutes of light exercise every day and get adequate sleep so your liver can rest.
4 & 5: Kidneys — Anything around the eyes (including dark circles) point to dehydration. Drink up!
6: Heart — Check your blood pressure (mine was slightly high) and Vitamin B levels. Decrease the intake of spicy or pungent food, cut down on meat and get more fresh air. Besides this, look into ways to lower cholesterol, like replacing “bad fats” with “good fats” such as Omegas 3 and 6 found in nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed. Also, since this area is chock-full of dilated pores, check that your makeup is not past its expiry date or is skin-clogging.
7 & 8: Kidneys — Again, drink up! And cut down on aerated drinks, coffee and alcohol as these will cause further dehydration.
Zone 9 & 10: Respiratory system — Do you smoke? Have allergies? This is your problem area for both. If neither of these is the issue, don’t let your body overheat, eat more cooling foods, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air. Also keep the body more alkaline by avoiding foods that make the body acidic (meat, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, sugar) and adding more alkalizing foods like green veggies and wheatgrass juice. Another thing that most of forget – dirty cell phones and pillow cases are two of the top acne culprits and this area is what they affect the most!
Zone 11 & 12: Hormones — This is the signature zone for stress and hormonal changes. And while both are sometimes unavoidable, you can decrease their effect by getting adequate sleep, drinking enough water, eating leafy veggies and keeping skin scrupulously clean. Another interesting point: breakouts in this area indicate when you are ovulating (and on which side).
Zone 13: Stomach — Step up the fibre intake, reduce the toxin overload and drink herbal teas to help with digestion.
14: Illness — Zits here can be a sign that your body is fighting bacteria to avoid illness. Give it a break, take a yoga class, take a nap, take time to breathe deeply, drink plenty of water and know that everything always works out!
So the next time you break out or notice dark under-eye circles, look to your face map: your skin is probably trying to communicate on behalf of the internal organs. However, do remember that, as with all medical issues, it is always best to see your doctor or dermotologist for a proper prognosis. This is just a general guide to head you off in the right investigative direction – just because you break out between the brows doesn’t always mean you have a bad liver!

DRY BRUSHING
Miranda Kerr’s KORA Organics team have written a fantastic article about Dry Brushing and our Irie has often raved about KORA as a fab source of info about lifestyle and body/skincare. 
I dont know about u but sometimes I get stumped when I have to explain benefits of the cactus brush. I know dry brushing is good for you & here’s why:
It perks up skin colour and clarity
Unclogs the follicles and pores
Allows the skin to breathe better
Assists in the elimination of toxins and wastes
Improves the skin’s texture through cell renewal
Improves skin hydration and reduces the appearance of cellulite
Stimulates the skin’s overall function and increases blood and lymphatic circulation
Allows the better absorption of products
In future I will simply say it “eliminates toxins by stimulating blood circulation” and is a perfect partner with just about anything bath& body. Of course, such a firm brush will cause initial redness but it is not an irritation, your skin is just reacting to the pressure (it is a normal vascular response).
Brush away, not too hard!
