A dab of colour on the lips can liven up even the most tired of faces and it looks the freshest if the colour is pink.A lip colour be it a gloss or a lipstick is an iconic cosmetic that is a must in a woman's vanity case. Says makeup artist and trainer Samantha Kocchar, "Lipstick is the most important item of makeup. No woman's make up bag should be without few key shades." The key most shade is pink.

Egyptians most likely devised the method of making and applying lipstick to

Study finds why smokers gain weight when they quit PDF Print E-mail

WASHINGTON | Scientists say they've finally discovered why smokers tend to gain some weight when they kick the habit.It turns out that nicotine can rev up brain cells that normally signal people to stop eating when they're full, researchers report in Friday's edition of the journal Science.The weight connection isn't huge: On average, quitters gain less than 10 pounds. Still, it's a worry that many smokers cite when asked why they don't try to quit. Now the question is whether the discovery might lead to better treatments to help them quit without worrying about weight.Yale University associate research scientist Yann Mineur stumbled onto the connection while studying a nicotine-related substance in mice — and the animals suddenly started eating less.Nicotine hooks onto a variety of receptors, or docking sites, on the surface of cells. That's how it

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
