Circulatory System - 3 types of vessels/cells
1 - Erthosytes (red blood cells) transports respiratory gases and oxygen to the cells and carbon dioxide away from the cells, carry hemoglobin
2 - Leukocytes (white blood cells) two types : granuloctyes (form in lymphatic tissue) and agranulocytes (form in bone marrow. Also has defense against disease and goes thru cap. walls
3 - platets (thombocytes)
is blood clotting (hemostasis) and fibrin (entangles threads to catch red blood cells)

Allergice Skin
-Allergies, irritants, frangrance, essential oils and preservatives most cause skin reactions
-Excessively red, burning, inflammatory condition
-Takes longer for an allergice reaction to surface than sensitive
-Rejection by immune system
-not react first tiem - keep products
- entire body affected daily care
Sensitive Skin
-Condition by environmental stimuli, stress and sun exposure
-genetically predisposal
-characterized by redness and is easily irritated by products, heat, touch and sun, soothe and calm
- reaction happens quickly - localized
-bloctching when touched
- localized irritation
- no barrier function
- react 1st tiem exposed
What's Alveoli?
- Tiny sac like formation in the lunghs designed for rapid gas exchange of h2o carbon dioxide
Respiratory System
-Comprised of organs concerned with the exchange of gases between an organism and its environment
-The exchange of gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) between air and blood between the blood and the tissues
-Air pathways and lungs
Respiratory System (1)
Nose passageway for air and from lungs filling impurities, warming and moisturizing
Respiratory System (2)
Pharynx (throat) hallway for food and air
Respiratory System (3)
Larynx (voice box) forms a lid opening of larynx when eating to prevent food and water from entering lungs
Respiratory System (4)
Trachea (windpipe) open passageway for air to lungs
Respiratory System (5)
Lungs - primary organ alveoli exchange of h2o carbon dioxide
Inspiration - takin in air
Expiration - expulsion of air

1 - external jugular - drains ex portion of the head, scalp and face
2 - Internal jugular vein - principle vein of neck
-passes on sides of neck close to arteries

- Introducing water soluble products into the skin with current
- Negative product
- Negative electrode
- Client holds positive electrode
ex: negative attracts positive vice versa
-deep pore cleasning
-create a chemcial reaction that acts to emulsify or sebum and waste - breaks up debris
-beneficial for oily and acneic
- neg. polarity w/ salt solution extract
- positive polarity w/ distilled h2o
