Skin Moles

Published

Nana Aba Anamoah

Skin moles have been portrayed as ugly blemishes marring the faces of an individual. They’ve also been seen as sophisticated marks of beauty, gracing the faces of the world’s most renowned celebrities and supermodels.

Moles are an incredibly common occurrence; nearly everyone has at least a few. Most prevalent in fair-skinned people, skin moles are generally harmless skin growths that result from a high concentration of natural skin pigment. In most cases, moles go through their normal life cycle without ever causing a problem — they’re merely a normal part of a person’s skin.

While most are not, skin moles can also be an important indicator of skin cancer also known as Melanoma. It’s important to learn about the different types of skin moles in order to evaluate whether one may be cancerous. Certain symptoms may indicate the development of an atypical mole, which a doctor should check.

Some moles can be present at birth, but most appear during childhood or young adulthood. New moles that appear later in life should be checked by a doctor. Once a mole has developed, it will usually stay the same size, shape, and colour for many years. Some moles may eventually fade away.

Most people have moles, and almost all moles are harmless. But it’s important to recognize changes in a mole – such as in its size, shape, or colour – that can suggest a Melanoma may be developing.

Possible Signs and Symptoms of Melanoma
The ABCDE rule is another guide to the usual signs of melanoma. Be on the lookout and tell your doctor about spots that have any of the following features:
• A is for Asymmetry: One half of a mole or birthmark does not match the other.
• B is for Border: The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred.
• C is for Colour: The color is not the same all over and may include different shades of brown or black, or sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue.
• D is for Diameter: The spot is larger than 6 millimeters across (about ¼ inch – the size of a pencil eraser), although melanomas can sometimes be smaller than this.
• E is for Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape, or colour.

Some melanomas don’t fit these rules. It’s important to tell your doctor about any changes or new spots on the skin, or growths that look different from the rest of your moles.

#Trends: Rolex Oyster Perpetual

Published

on

The aesthetics of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual models set them apart as symbols of universal and classic style. They embody timeless form and function, firmly rooted in the pioneering origins of Rolex. The simplicity of an original.

The un-suffixed Oyster Perpetual collection, with its simple three-hand design, remains the most affordable (and some would say wearable) watch in the Rolex collection. Until very recently, due to its more diminutive sizing – 26/31/34/36mm – the Oyster Perpetual collection’s primary audience was women. While there were some Rolex aficionados who loved the 34 and 36mm for their vintage proportions, for most men it was just too small. Then, in 2015, the 39mm was announced.

Unsurprisingly, the watch world was very happy about this. Hodinkee’s founder Ben Clymer called them “simply superb but understated pieces that offer incredible versatility without costing a fortune, or showing off too much”.

Almost defiantly simplistic, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual could be seen as the purest distillation of everything the brand’s founder Hans Wilsdorf wanted to achieve – the creation of the definitive Swiss-made wristwatch. This is Rolex at its most pure – incredibly well-made, democratically priced and with a design that manages to be both contemporary and timeless.

Vogue Unofficial Focuses On Blackness In September

Published

on

Vogue Magazine

Blackness has evolved into a symbol of power, boldness, and sophistication, from when being black meant playing second fiddle, being inadequate and being captured in one’s self. Voices of all kinds through every channel of arts have particularly been loud on the seriousness of Black issues across the world. From A-List musicians to movies stars, from big-budget movies to music videos, from magazine covers to social media campaigns, etc…, blackness has taken the forefront in arts and entertainments as a subject to ensure equal opportunities and rights for black people across the world.

As September issues are the most prestigious in the magazine world, @Vogue took Black matters to a more serious level by handing over control to the biggest female artists in the world. With @Beyonce covering US @vogue and being shot by a black photographer and Rihanna @badgalriri fronting the cover of @BritishVogue, Black Excellence just reached another peak.

“Vogue Unofficial” is our recreation of the iconic and historic September 2018 issues of US Vogue and British Vogue. Our take on the covers is our way of paying homage and tribute to two Ghanaian born creative geniuses, @KwasiFordjour, the creative director for @Beyonce ’s September issue for US @Vogue and @Edward_Enninful, the Editor-in-Chief of @BritishVogue, as they take charge of the world of arts and are breaking color barriers.

Through our themes “UNAPOLOGETIC. BLACK.” “INGENUITY. BLACK.”, we re-echo all the messages and values carried by these powerful black women on the cover of these magazines and what it means to all young black women in Ghana and Africa.

Our shoot further explores Blackness as a symbol of INTELLECT, INGENUITY, and SELF-LOVE.

UNAPOLOGETIC.
BLACK.

The issue of black exclusion may seem like a western problem, however within Africa, there is a more vicious issue of blackness. Lead movie roles are given to light skin people as its assumed they are more commercial. This has resulted in skin bleaching amongst celebrities and stars to push up their market value.

Can we see beauty in the darkest shade of black, can we embrace strength in our melanin, as there is a place for every shade of black.

As depicted, our cover embodies the dark shades of blackness an African can be and the glory that runs through her blackness. She is Graceful, she’s Intelligent and she portrays Self-Love.

The beauty of being African is in the layers and tones of the black complexion. This is for us as Africans to embrace and appreciate our darkest tones and see beauty, power, grace and sophistication in the way we look.

INGENUITY.
BLACK.

There’s been millions of messages, writings, movies, speeches, music and various works of art pushing women’s agenda. Have all these efforts been enough??? Well… Not enough to fully curb the marginalization of women, especially women of Color and portraying them as weaklings.

Equally there’s been millions of women who are changing the world with their ingenuity in their own small or massive ways. INGENUITY. BLACK. is a recreation of Beyonce’s US Vogue cover as an embodiment of such finesse, creativity, originality, inclusiveness and inspiration.

We portray black women with our model holding a golden egg to symbolize the birth of unique and innovative ideas. Before great things are birth, we believe a touch of the industriousness, creativity and brilliance makes the difference.
