Covering all facets of the beauty industry, the B2B event offers distributors, retailers, brands and suppliers an opportunity to discover new products, partnerships and business solutions, as well as participate in a wide range of educational offerings. This year, attendees will have the chance to learn about and apply to London- based beauty tech accelerator program Founders Factory, which helps startups with everything from business plan development and fundraising to product engineering and marketing. Meanwhile, time is running out to RSVP for the annual City of Hope Gala taking place the evening of July 28 at the Mandalay Bay Ballroom, just before CosmoProf kicks off. During the celebration, Creative Age Publications' own CEO/president Deborah Carver will be honored with the prestigious Spirit of Life Award. As part of her ongoing support of the renowned cancer treatment center, Carver has been spearheading an eight-month "Hope Is in Your Hands" campaign with a goal of raising $1.5 million. Opportunities to support the cause include attending the gala and doing an in-spa fundraiser.

The research, published in The International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (May 2018) revealed that subjects who routinely practiced yoga reported healthier eating behaviors and higher levels of physical activity than non-practitioners. The researchers used data collected as part of the fourth wave of Project EAT (Eating and Activity in Teens and Young Adults) in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, which fi rst recruited nearly 5,000 adolescents in 1998-1999. More than 1,800 young adults (now an average age of 30) completed a survey about a range of weight-related lifestyle behaviors, including detailed questions about their yoga practice. In addition to the data about specifi c eating and activity behaviors, participants reported that yoga helped them curb emotional eating, motivated them to do other forms of exercise and improved their ability to be more active in general.
