MISS BLACK NEW YORK CASSANDRE BRISSOT TALKS ABOUT EATING FOR NOURISHMENT

I am a first generation American of Haitian decent hailing out of Brooklyn, New York. In the Haitian culture almost every meal is based around rice and beans. If I haven't had rice and beans I feel as if I haven't had a real meal. In addition to that my mom always cooked growing up, so we rarely ate out. If we had McDonald's or another fast food it was a treat, not the norm. Over the years particularly the last 3, I've realized there's a difference between eating and being nourished. Just because you've eaten doesn't mean you've eaten anything of nutritional value. However, getting all my nutrients everyday is still a work in progress.  I've started packing almonds, carrot sticks, brown rice, and peanut...

SEA SALT AND OLIVE OIL… THE SECRET BEHIND HEALTHY NAILS?

Do you know exactly what a healthy nail looks like? Did you answer no? Hopefully I can change that answer for you. I must say before I decided to go to cosmetology school, I didn’t know what healthy nails looked like either, but with the proper knowledge I gained, I can tell if a person is in good or bad health, just by looking at their finger nails. The normal healthy nail is firm but flexible, shiny, smooth and ridge free, no splits and no discoloration. It’s usually translucent in appearance with the ability to see through the nail plate. The nail bed varies from person to person so you may think “my nails don’t look healthy according to these characteristics”; but you can achieve healthy...

HOW PERMANENT MAKEUP IS DONE (PART 2)

The process is just like getting a tattoo. The person applying permanent makeup uses a needle that penetrates your skin and releases pigment. Proper sterilization, techniques, and licensing are important. Getting Permanent Makeup Before getting permanent makeup applied, you'll get a patch test on your skin to check on whether you have an allergic reaction to the pigment that will be used.

The technician will then use a sterile surgical pen to sketch the area to be tattooed and then put an anesthetic gel on your skin. Using a hollow, vibrating needle, the technician will apply the pigment into the top layer of the skin. You will feel a slight stinging. After getting permanent makeup, it takes...
