COLORESCIENCE® INTRODUCES BARRIER PRO™ COLLECTION: 1-STEP CLEANSER AND ESSENTIAL MOISTURIZER.

Colorescience

Colorescience®, a leading dermatologist-recommended specialty skincare company, is launching an innovative new collection of skin barrier-focused solutions, starting with two daily staples: Barrier Pro™ 1-Step Cleanser and Barrier Pro™ Essential Moisturizer. Developed in collaboration with skin health professionals, this powerful but gentle cleanser and innovative moisturizer help to enhance skin’s natural resilience and radiance by strengthening and maintaining the skin’s protective barrier. Colorescience Barrier Pro™ provides ultra-protective, skin barrier health achieved through intense multi-level hydration & moisture retention, a balanced microbiome, and free radical-fighting antioxidants. Skin starts and ends each day strengthened, supported and more resilient with the Colorescience Barrier Pro™ collection of products. Founder and medical director of Lucere Dermatology and Laser Clinic, and Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Zaki Taher is impressed by the complete approach to improving the skin barrier. “ The integrity of the skin’s barrier is pivotal to its overall health, functioning as the foremost shield against environmental factors. Our current understanding underscores that maintaining the skin’s barrier necessitates more than mere hydration. It is gratifying to note that the Barrier Pro line takes a comprehensive approach to skin health by focusing not only on augmenting hydration levels but also on supporting the skin microbiome and bolstering its resilience. This multifaceted care is crucial for the skin’s capacity to adapt and respond to external aggressors, such as blue light exposure. Utilizing such advanced skincare solutions can significantly contribute to healthier, more robust skin.” Barrier Pro™ 1-Step Cleanser ($46) removes makeup and stubborn mineral sunscreen in a single step – no need to double cleanse. This was a must for Colorescience®, the experts in all-mineral sun protection. A multi-benefit skin barrier-boosting solution, this more-than-a-cleanser helps support skin’s microbiome with a first-of-its-kind, patented Lactobacillus Ferment, a probiotic-like ferment that creates balance by favoring the beneficial bacteria that make up the skin's microbiome and discouraging harmful bacteria. Pink Pomelo Grapefruit promotes gentle exfoliation for a softer, smoother texture without skin feeling stripped. Patricia Boland, Vice President of Research & Development at Colorescience® shares, “As a company that is known for our innovative all-mineral, water-resistant sunscreens, we have often been asked by consumers and our aesthetic professional partners how to best remove the layers of protection at the end of the day without harsh ingredients and multiple cleanses. Barrier Pro 1-Step Cleanser not only removes it all in a single step- it supports skin’s microbiome, improves resilience to damage, and leaves skin feeling hydrated, soothed and smooth. Used alongside Barrier Pro Essential Moisturizer, these upgraded staples transform skin in a matter of days, revealing greater integrity and strength.” Barrier Pro™ Essential Moisturizer ($78 ) helps strengthen the skin’s protective barrier, support and balance the microbiome, and refine texture with a patent pending ingredient blend, resulting in a more plump, vibrant, healthy, and youthful appearance. It features an innovative tri-molecular hyaluronic acid that provides multi-layer hydration – different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid ensure lasting hydration and retention. The formula features a first-of-its-kind, patented Lactobacillus Ferment, a probiotic-like ferment that creates balance by favoring the beneficial bacteria that make up the skin's microbiome and discouraging harmful bacteria. Inclusion of a bioavailable vitamin E and hydrolyzed pea protein helps support skin’s adaptive response to UV exposure. The Essential Moisturizer also improves the skin’s adaptive response to increase protection from indoor and outdoor light, including UV and HEV (blue) light, and continues to improve the skin’s resilience and adaptive response over time. The emollient cream melts into the skin and prepares it for optimal sunscreen application. Jessie Pasquarello, advanced practice aesthetician at Robertson Cosmetic Center in Madison, WI states, “What I appreciate most about the Barrier Pro Essential Moisturizer is that it optimizes the skin barrier and easily fits into a skin regimen for so many people. My patients have a range of skin concerns, from dry to oily, aging to acne and everything in between. The texture makes you want to wear it and the ingredients are proven to deliver results. When it comes to impacting skin quality and improving skin resiliency, the Barrier Pro Essential Moisturizer and the 1-Step Cleanser are unlike any others.” ABOUT COLORESCIENCE Colorescience®, the leading innovator in all-mineral sun protection, delivers transformational skincare solutions through wearable multifunctional products that provide immediate confidence and long-term visible results. Crafted for users who know that great results require daily skincare and protection, Colorescience ® uses cutting-edge technology and clinically tested formulas to ensure efficacy and provide reassurance to people of all ages, skin types, and concerns.

Founder of Crypto Capital Venture Predicts Price Break Out for Cardano and Bitcoin, Meme Moguls To Dominate the Bull Market

Total Media

A top crypto analyst has predicted that Bitcoin and Cardano are close to experiencing a price breakout. The founder of Crypto Capital Venture explained that the move is already happening early this cycle. Meme Mogul is another crypto that has been predicted to benefit from this bull market. Let’s see how high these cryptos can go in the bull market. Dan Gambardello Has Predicted a Price Outbreak for Cardano ADA Dan Gambardello, market analyst and founder of Crypto Capital Venture has given his bullish predictions for Cardano. He explained that the Cardano coin is already in the early stages of its bull market. He highlighted the bullish momentum as a positive factor for ADA. He added that the price action displayed on the Cardano chart is “even more exciting”. He explained that the Cardano price has moved above the 20-week and 50-week moving averages. This would allow the price of ADA to increase significantly without entering the overbought level. His first price target for the ADA coin is around the $0.450 level. Based on his prediction, if the price of Cardano breaks above this resistance, then a rally to $0.750 could begin. However, he added that bulls must defend the ADA price from breaking below the 20-day support level. Bitcoin Still Has Massive Upside Potential In the same analysis, Gambardello shared his insight on the price of Bitcoin. He explained that there is currently too much bullishness going on in the crypto market. For a bullish scenario, he explained that the Bitcoin price chart must remain above its upper trendline. This excitement can be linked to the anticipation of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval. According to Gambardello, a sustained bullish period in the short term would hint at an actual bull market entering into 2024. For this to happen, the Bitcoin value must surge above $38,000. He added that only a break above $38,000 would guarantee a continuation of the bullish market. BTC made an attempt to reclaim this resistance in mid-November but has dropped below $37,000. Because of this, he warned that the market could become more choppy with sideways price action. Meme Moguls (MGLS) Set To Dominate the Bull Market A fast-growing crypto that has caught the attention of the crypto community ahead of the bull market is Meme Moguls (MGLS). The project has been highly rated by crypto experts because of its plethora of unique features and opportunities. Most notably is the first stock exchange platform built for the meme coin sector. This stock exchange platform was built specifically to cater to the needs of meme enthusiasts. Users will find the widest array of meme coins and meme-based assets. The platform has also infused a tiered leaderboard where traders who rank higher earn rewards. The platform will provide the latest meme trends and updates to help. The Meme Moguls ecosystem has also retained the community-driven nature of meme coins. Within the ecosystem, users will connect with other meme coin enthusiasts. They will connect, share information, and trade ideas, among other things. With the aim of revolutionizing the meme coin space, Meme Moguls has been highly rated by crypto experts. This can be seen in the growing interest in the project. Because of this, analysts have predicted up to a 3,500% price rise in the bull market. A great window of opportunity is still open as you can buy the MGLS token for only $0.0021 before this predicted rally. Visit Meme Moguls Contact Details Meme Moguls pr@mememoguls.com

How to Play Omaha Poker at Canadian Casinos: A Comprehensive Guide

Acroud Media

Omaha poker, sometimes called Omaha Hold’em, is a popular derivative of Texas Hold’em known for its volatile and calculated gameplay. It plays identically to Texas Hold’em with a couple of key differences, which makes it easy to learn. However, that similarity can trip newer players up. This guide will teach you how to play Omaha poker and equip you with the necessary knowledge to get out there and try it yourself. Once you have read this guide, check out our review of the Best Poker Sites in Canada; learn more here. How to Play Omaha Poker Omaha poker is a community card game. Players are dealt four hole cards and must use two of them and three of the community cards to form the best poker hand. Of course, this is poker, so there are a lot of subtleties to the play beyond the core goal of the game. Here’s a basic overview of how you play Omaha poker: Dealing: Each player is dealt four hole cards face down. A player may only see their own hole cards. Preflop: The first round of betting takes place. The blinds start the pot, and players opt in or out. In each betting round, players can choose to bet, call (meet the bet), raise or fold (withdraw). The Flop: The first three community cards are drawn and placed face up on the table. With this new information, there is a second round of betting. The Turn: A fourth community card is drawn, and there’s another round of betting. The River: A fifth community card is drawn, and the final round of betting is held. The Showdown: If necessary, the remaining players choose their final hand and reveal it to determine a winner. Players must use two of their hole cards in the hand and can choose to muck (forfeit) instead of showing. Whoever has the best hand (or is the last player standing) wins the pot. Omaha Poker Hand Rankings Hand rankings in Omaha poker are the same as in Texas Hold’em. Here’s a quick rundown in case you need a reference: Royal Flush — A-K-Q-J-10 of the same suit Straight Flush — five consecutive cards of the same suit Four-of-a-kind — four cards of the same value Full House — a three-of-a-kind and a pair Flush — five cards of the same suit Straight — five consecutive cards, regardless of suit Three-of-a-kind — three cards of the same value Two Pair — two pairs of cards, each a different value One Pair — two cards of the same value High Card — the worst possible hand, with none of the above combinations. In Omaha poker, you build your hand using two of your four hole cards, plus three of the community cards. How is Omaha Poker different from Texas Hold’em? Since Omaha Poker is a derivative of Texas Hold’em, you’re probably wondering what the differences between the two are. There are two major changes to the rules of Hold’em that make Omaha poker a unique game: The players are dealt 4 hole cards instead of 2 The final hand must use 2 of the hole cards and 3 of the community cards While these changes are small, they do drastically change your approach towards the game. Here are some of the key strategic differences: Stronger Hands With more cards to pick from, players are more likely to get better hands. As such, a strong hand in Texas Hold’em could be significantly weaker in Omaha, leading to much more volatile gameplay. Hand Building Having to use two of your hole cards means hand building is a lot less flexible than in Texas Hold’em, where you can choose to use only one. Varieties Omaha poker is quite popularly played as Omaha Hi/Low. Because you have more hole cards and more potential hands, playing for both the highest and lowest hands is easier. Betting Limits While both games are played with a variety of betting structures, Texas Hold’em is traditionally played no-limit, and Omaha with a pot limit. This means Texas Hold’em games are often higher stakes. Availability Omaha isn’t quite as popular as the game it’s derived from, so it’s harder to find games online, let alone with the betting structure or variation you’re after. And it can be even harder to find a game at a land-based location. However, you can find Texas Hold’em just about everywhere. Lower Barrier to Entry Omaha poker may be a little more complex than Texas Hold’em. However, the less competitive scene means that, on average, Omaha poker games are a little easier. Tips for Playing Omaha Poker Online So now that you know how to play Omaha poker, it’s time to get out there and put that knowledge to the test. However, before we leave you to run wild, let us leave you with a few tips, especially if you plan to play online. Keep the stakes as low as possible when you’re starting out. This could mean playing casual games with friends, playing at social casinos or with bonus funds. While you’re learning to play, you’ll lose a lot more, and it’s a good idea to limit your losses during that rocky period. Find a dedicated poker site/house rather than a general casino. While you’ll almost always find a game of Texas Hold’em at a casino, Omaha Hold’em is a lot less common. However, it’s one of the most popular poker games at dedicated sites, and you can even find variations on it, like hi/low and different betting structures. Pay attention to your position of play. Your position to the blinds can determine the amount of information you’re working with at any point. As your positioning changes, you might consider changing up your strategies. Don’t worry if you aren’t great at first, even if you’re a whiz at Texas Hold’em. Omaha poker is a very different game, and having a lot of experience with Texas Hold’em can actually be a disadvantage. Let yourself make mistakes as you get used to the different types of play. Conclusion Omaha poker is an interesting game; it’s surprising how such a small change to the rules can dramatically change the flow of play. If you’re a newbie to poker or an experienced player looking to shake up your experience, Omaha poker isn’t a game to sleep on. Expect it to be different but just as much fun!

Well, here are the main factors that we consider: Safety and Security Ensuring your safety is of the utmost importance when enjoying online casino activities in Singapore.

These licences ensure that the casinos operate within the legal framework and adhere to the strictest regulations, meaning you can enjoy fair play and player protection.

The Different Types of Online Casino Bonuses - and How to Use Them No matter what casino you opt to go with, you will find all different types of bonuses available to take advantage of. However, they can be pretty confusing, especially if you aren’t familiar with the terms and conditions. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the different types of bonuses and everything you need to know about how to claim them and understand the terms attached… Match Deposit Bonuses Matched deposit bonuses are a popular type of promotion offered by online casinos. With these bonuses, the casino matches a percentage of the player's deposit, effectively doubling their initial bankroll. For example, a 100% matched deposit bonus of up to $200 would mean that if you deposited $200, you would get an extra $200 in bonus money - giving you $400 to play with in total. These bonuses generally come with certain wagering requirements and terms and conditions that you need to fulfil before you can withdraw your winnings. Ultimately, matched deposit bonuses provide you with even more money to explore the casino's games and increase your chances of winning, making them an enticing incentive for new and existing players alike. Free Spins Free spins are another popular type of casino bonus that allows you to spin the reels of a slot machine without using your own money. These spins are typically offered as part of a welcome package or ongoing promotions. However, any winnings from free spins are usually subject to wagering requirements before they can be withdrawn. Free spins are a great way to try out slot games and potentially win real money without risking your own funds, adding even more excitement to the casino experience. No Deposit Casino Bonuses No-deposit casino bonuses are promotional offers that allow you to claim bonus funds or free spins without having to make a deposit. These bonuses are usually offered as a welcome bonus to attract new players. Although they offer an opportunity to play and win real money without spending any of your own, they usually come with specific terms and conditions that must be met before withdrawals are allowed. Reload Bonuses Reload bonuses are special promotions offered by online casinos to existing players when they make a new deposit into their account. These bonuses basically incentivise players to keep on playing and spending money. Generally, reload bonuses provide a percentage match of the deposit amount, giving you extra bonus funds to play with. Like other bonuses, reload bonuses will come with specific terms and conditions that have to be met before any winnings can be withdrawn. Cashback Bonuses Cashback bonuses are a type of promotion offered by online casinos that provide players with a percentage of their losses back as a bonus. This type of bonus essentially acts as a consolation prize, offering you the chance to recover some of your losses. So, for example, if a casino offers a 10% cashback bonus and you lose $100, you would receive $10 as a cashback bonus. Cashback bonuses are often calculated based on a specific time period or specific games and they can be awarded as bonus funds or real cash - depending on the casino's specific terms. Ultimately, cashback bonuses provide you with an added layer of protection and can give you even more playing time. High Roller Bonuses High roller bonuses are exclusive promotions designed for those players who like to make large deposits and make big bets at online casinos. These bonuses are perfect for high-stakes players and provide them with even more perks and rewards to give them an even better gaming experience. High roller bonuses often offer generous match percentages or bonus amounts that are higher than standard promotions. They may also include personalised offers, dedicated account managers, faster withdrawal times, and access to VIP programs. These bonuses are specifically tailored to suit the needs and preferences of big spenders - providing them with exceptional treatment and benefits. Understanding Casino Bonus Terms and Conditions Pretty much all casino bonuses come with specific terms and conditions that you will have to adhere to in order to fully benefit from these bonus offers. As such, it is essential to carefully read and understand these terms before claiming any bonuses. Here are some common terms and conditions associated with casino bonuses: Wagering Requirements: This refers to the number of times the bonus amount or winnings must be wagered before they can be withdrawn. For example, if the wagering requirement is 30x and the bonus amount is $100, you will need to wager $3,000 before making a withdrawal. Game Contributions: Different games contribute differently towards meeting the wagering requirements. Generally, slots contribute 100%, while table games and other games may contribute less (10% to 20%) or sometimes not at all. Time Limits: Bonuses usually have a specific time limit within which the wagering requirements must be fulfilled. If not completed within the given timeframe, the bonus and any associated winnings will be forfeited. Maximum Bet: There may also be a maximum bet limit imposed when using bonus funds. If you attempt to exceed this limit, it can result in the bonus and winnings being voided. Restricted Games: Some bonuses may restrict certain games from being played while the bonus is active. If you do attempt to play these restricted games, it may lead to the bonus being invalidated. Excluded Payment Methods: Certain payment methods could be excluded from bonus eligibility (usually eWallets such as Skrill and Neteller). As such, it is important to check the terms and conditions to ensure that your chosen payment method qualifies for the bonus. This is usually to prevent bonus abuse. If you are considered to be abusing the bonus system, they may well confiscate your bonuses and close your casino account. It is absolutely vital to familiarise yourself with these terms and conditions to avoid any misunderstandings or potential disappointments. By sticking to these T&Cs, you can enjoy an even better casino bonus experience - and withdraw your winnings with no problems Singapore Casino Bonus Codes - And How They Work Sometimes, Singapore casinos will also offer bonus codes for special deals - which are special alphanumeric.
