December’s been a busy month for Pür Minerals and for our fans. With the holidays fast approaching, many have taken to the web to share their thoughts, experiences and opinions on this month’s must-have beauty buys. Here’s a look at what a few have to say:
Ever wonder why you’re never born with the hair you want? Curly girls always seem to want straighter strands, while those with straight hair constantly crave curled tresses. Well, researchers in Australia may have discovered the culprit—a “curly gene” responsible for those unruly locks. The next step? Developing a pill that may, one day, render straightening irons and chemical relaxers obsolete.
Looking to add a little mystery to your winter wardrobe? Then pick up the December edition of Trend, W magazine’s fashion and beauty supplement, for expert tips on adding some classic intrigue to your year-end look. In an article called “Hitchcock Hip,” beauty editors hearken back to a bygone era where femme fatales lit up the silver screen and nothing was quite as it seemed. Forget flapper chic, this winter’s to-die-for look is smart and sophisticated with an edge (and an alibi).

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States and the second leading cause of female cancer death. The American Cancer Society (ACS) expects 192,370 new cases to be diagnosed this year alone. However, for those cases detected early enough, there’s encouraging news—the disease is highly treatable, with over 2.5 million survivors living in the United States today. That’s why we, at Pür Minerals, urge you to get checked and get active in the fight against this malicious disease.
While regular self-checking is always encouraged, it’s no substitute for clinical screening, which can detect the disease in its earliest (and most treatable) state. In addition the month’s numerous charity and awareness events, October is also host to National Mammography Day. On the third Friday of the month (October 16 for 2009), many radiologists provide free or discounted mammograms. To find a location near you visit the Associated College of Radiology.
With the sweltering dog days of summer finally behind us, the cool, crisp autumn months come as a welcomed relief. However, as the mercury drops, so does the humidity. As Mother Nature dials down the heat and dries out the air, the change in weather can be a roller coaster ride for your skin. Here are just a few things you can do to keep your skin hydrated and healthy in the months ahead:
