    Since I am only 15 years old, I do suffer from acne a lot. My skin is generally quite dark and oily, so I only use sunscreen in the summer. Every morning I use a special mud soap for acne, but I still suffer from it a bit. Sometimes I still feel insecure about my acne:mellow: I agree that Mika has a beautiful skin:wub2: Then I use a moisturizing oil for the whole face. A face cream and lip cream, because my lips break very quickly :(Sometimes I scrub my face with a rotating brush. I try to drink enough water, but it's not always that simple:biggrin2: And if I have makeup on at parties, I always remove it with makeup remover in the evening. 


    Don't worry !

    Have you read this article before ?


    I think this article is true. When I was a teenager, my problem was acne like you. My acne had never recovered till 18 years old.

    But now, I'm 63 years old. I don't have much wrinkle on my face. :pinkbow:


    Zits in high school may mean youthful looking skin in adulthood



    Cells of past acne victims have longer telomeres, which may delay cellular aging


    For teens, a face full of oozing, bulging, and bursting zits is sure to mortify. But the puss-spewing horror may be a sign of a glowing godsend to come.


    Those who suffer through acne early in life are likely to have longer telomeres (protective DNA caps on the ends of chromosomes) in their white blood cells—a feature that suggests their cells may age more slowly. The finding, published Wednesday in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, may finally explain a phenomenon dermatologists have long noted: that past acne sufferers tend to have more youthful looking skin, with less wrinkling and thinning, compared to peers who never battled blemishes.


    “Our findings suggest that the cause could be linked to the length of telomeres, which appears to be different in acne sufferers and means their cells may be protected against ageing,” lead author of the study,  ySimone Ribero, a dermatologist at King’s College London, said in a statement.


    For the study, Ribero and colleagues measured the telomeres of 1,205 female twins, a quarter of whom reported having acne at some point in their life. After accounting for things like age, weight, and height, the researchers found that those with a history of zits had longer telomeres. That finding suggests slower cellular aging because those telomere caps, which are made of meaningless, repetitive sequences of DNA nucleotides, sit on the ends of chromosomes and prevent the useful bits of genetic blueprints from deteriorating. However, over time, the telomeres themselves deteriorate, getting shorter and shorter leading up to cell death.


    The researchers also examined skin biopsies from acne survivors and age-matched people who had never been plagued by pimples. They found that the latter group tended to have higher activity in genes involved with cell death. This finding squares with the idea that there’s a genetic component behind the glowing skin of some former zit zappers.


    However, it’s important to keep in mind that the study is only a correlation; it doesn’t definitively prove that past pimple poppers have delayed skin aging and, if they do, that longer telomeres are the cause. More research is needed, Ribero said. But for now, those coping with complexion may take comfort in the preliminary findings.

    Restos du Coeur
    The Enfoirés Music Box


    In 2013, the Enfoirés music box sounded in front of the fifteen thousand spectators of the Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy. Because Les Restos du Cœur needs them more than ever, some forty artists, still faithful to the call for generosity launched by Coluche since 1985, have responded to this new edition.

    This year, The Enfoirés music box will cross eras and musical styles with an ever more inventive staging. From the poetic and magical opening painting carried by Jeanne de Laurent Voulzy, to the more rock I saw from Niagara, which offers a joust between two galleys in the middle of the public, through the delirious painting Dance with Bernard, the energy and the talent of the Enfoirés will shine through throughout the evening. Humor will also be at the rendezvous with the interventions of Mimie Mathy, Michèle Laroque, Nicolas Canteloup or Pierre Palmade and Gad Elmaleh. This year, the band welcomes for the first time Tal, Yannick Agnel, Patrick Chesnais and Mika.

    The artists Alizée, Yannick Agnel, Jean-Louis Aubert, Chimène Badi, Amel Bent, Bénabar, Patrick Bruel, Nicolas Canteloup, Patrick Chesnais, Thomas Dutronc, Gad Elmaleh, Patrick Fiori, Garou, Jean-Marc Généreux, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Grégoire, Jenifer, Michael Jones, Gérard Jugnot, Claire Keim, Michèle Laroque, Maxime Le Forestier, Nolwenn Leroy, Lorie, Renan Luce, Christophe Maé, Mimie Mathy, Jean-Baptiste Maunier, Maurane, Mika, Pierre Palmade, M.

    Mika teaching Tabbouleh.

    Sorry, here comes finally the translation:




    Ciao sono Mika e voglio insegnarvi una cosa fondamentale: come fare un buon Tabbouleh. Il Tabbouleh e un’insalata. Si taglia il prezzemolo, tanto, tanto, tanto, si taglia i pomodori, si taglia la cipolla bianca e anche un po’ di cipollotto, tutto molto fino e poi si mette i pomodori dentro un colino e l’acqua del pomodoro è utilizzata per bagnare il bulgur. Se non sapete che cosa è il bulgur andate a cercare. Poi si mischie tutto: il bulgur, i pomodori, cipollotto, cipolla, limone, olio, sale, prezzemolo, tanto sale, “fum fum fum” con le mani soltanto, non si utilizza mai il cucchiaio. E poi mangiate, mangiate, mangiate, mangiate, perché di male non lo fa.



    :uk: (Translated by my colleague translation software DeepL and I also intervened a bit. :biggrin2:)


    Hi, I'm Mika and I want to teach you something very important: how to make a good Tabbouleh. Tabbouleh is a salad. You chop the parsley, a lot, a lot, a lot, you chop the tomatoes, you chop the white onion and also some spring onion, all very fine and then you put the tomatoes in a strainer and the water from the tomato is used to wet the bulgur. If you don't know what bulgur is, look it up. Then you mix everything together: the bulgur, the tomatoes, spring onion, onion, lemon, oil, salt, parsley, lots of salt, "fum fum fum" with your hands only, you never use a spoon. And then eat, eat, eat, eat, because it doesn't hurt.


    Thanks a lot for your tranlation@Prisca

    80 TELE & SCHERMI L’addio alla madre di Mika DI MARIA VOLPE




    page 80 - 81


    SKY UNO, 29 LUGLIO, ORE 21.15




    Un concerto davvero indimenticabile per tanti motivi: perché Mika (nella foto) è una popstar internazionale, perché l’Opera di Versailles è un luogo mitico e perché alla fine di quella serata magica è successa una cosa molto triste. Giovedì 29 luglio Sky manda in onda un concerto registrato il 16 dicembre 2020 alla Royal Opera di Versailles. Disse Mika allora: «Voglio dimostrare di essere il prodotto dell’incontro tra il mondo classico e quello pop». Accompagnato dall’orchestra della Royal Opera di Versailles, diretta da Stefan Plewniak, Mika ha accolto sul palco alcuni grandi e prestigiosi ospiti, come il violoncellista Gautier Capuçon, il chitarrista classico Thibaut Garcia o il coro Gospel Pour 100 Voix. E ha proposto i suoi brani più famosi: da Grace Kelly ad Ice Cream, passando per Lollipop, Elle Me Dit e Love Today, e la celebre Happy Ending. Anche se Happy Ending purtroppo quella sera non ci fu (anche se Mika non lo sapeva).Quel live del cantante è stato infatti l’addio di Mika a mamma Joannie. Due mesi dopo, a febbraio, confessò al magazine francese Le Parisien: «L’intera mia famiglia era presente a quel live, mia mamma compresa che era seduta su una sedia a rotelle. In un certo senso facevo quel concerto per lei. Se ne è andata poco dopo, sicuramente orgogliosa di quello che sono diventato». Un dolore fortissimo perché Mika aveva un legame davvero speciale con sua madre. Joannie Penniman dal 2019 stava combattendo con una forma di cancro al cervello molto aggressiva. Poi aveva contratto il coronavirus. Ma con la determinazione e la caparbietà che le appartenevano, uniti al grande amore per il figlio, riuscì a seguire fino all’ultimo i suoi successi. Fino a Versailles. Del resto Mika aveva sempre dichiarato che a incoraggiarlo a combattere per realizzare i suoi sogni c’è sempre stata, al suo fianco, mamma Joannie. Fin da quando era piccolo aveva capito la sua passione per la musica e lo invitava a leggere poesie in italiano, latino e tedesco.

    Una forza che Joannie è riuscita a trasmettere a Mika: «Il 2020 è stato un anno dolorosissimo per tanti. Ma mi ha anche dato un’incredibile libertà creativa. Essere così turbato mi ha permesso di vedere che c’erano altri modi perfare le cose, di cogliere altre opportunità. Mi ha aperto le porte alfuturo». E per ora, una piccola parte del ika a settembre tornerà come giudice.

    SKY ONE, 29 JULY, 9.15 pm


    A truly unforgettable concert for many reasons: because Mika (pictured) is an international pop star, because the Versailles Opera is a mythical place and because at the end of that magical evening a very sad thing happened. On Thursday 29 July Sky broadcasts a concert recorded on 16 December 2020 at the Royal Opera of Versailles. Mika then said: "I want to prove that I am the product of the encounter between the classical world and the pop one." Accompanied by the orchestra of the Royal Opera of Versailles, conducted by Stefan Plewniak, Mika welcomed some great and prestigious guests on stage, such as the cellist Gautier Capuçon, the classical guitarist Thibaut Garcia or the Gospel Pour 100 Voix choir. And she proposed her songs more famous than her: from Grace Kelly to Ice Cream, passing through Lollipop, Elle Me Dit and Love Today, and the famous Happy Ending. Although Happy Ending unfortunately didn't happen that evening (even if Mika didn't know it), that live of the singer was in fact Mika's farewell to mam ma Joannie. Two months later, in February, she confessed to the French magazine Le Parisien: "My whole family was present at that live, including my mother who was sitting in a wheelchair. In a way, I was doing that concert for her. She left shortly after, surely pride knows what I have become ». A very strong pain because Mika had a very special bond with his mother. Joannie Penniman from 2019 was battling a very aggressive form of brain cancer. Then she had contracted the coronavirus. But with her determination and stubbornness that belonged to her, combined with the great love for her son, she was able to follow his successes to the last of her. Up to Versailles. After all, Mika had always declared that to encourage him to fight to make his dreams come true, there was always his mother Joannie at his side. From an early age he understood his passion for music and invited him to read poems in Italian, Latin and German.

    A strength that Joannie managed to transmit to Mika: «2020 was a very painful year for many. But she also gave me incredible creative freedom. Being so upset allowed me to see that there were other ways to do things, to seize other opportunities. You opened the doors to the future for me ». And for now, a small part of Mika will return as a judge in September.
