Moroccan argan oil (also known as nut oils) is a valuable natural oil, which is rich in vitamin E, omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fatty acids, argan oil can be used as beauty products, face massage, nails, hair and body, can also be used as food. Cecilia Busby’s analyse of South India and Melanesia found that, despite their similarities, there were many intrinsic differences in how they defined and categorised people. In South India gender is fixed, based on obvious bodily differences between men and women. While in Melanesian the definition of gender is not purely concerned with physical differences, rather, definitions depend on how people act and what they do. All parts of life therefore contribute to gender definitions such as ‘appearance, attributes and work’ (Busby. 1997; 267). In South India men are defined as being able only to act in a male way while women can only act in a female way. Men and women though do need each other to help define themselves as they ‘most effectively demonstrate and enact this gender difference in transactions with each other’ (Busby. 1997; 269). In Melanesia though gender cannot be known purely through the physical appearance; rather it must be ‘displayed, through the successful manipulation of relationships'(Busby. 1997; 269). South India and Melanesia also differ in their views of the formation the physical persons. Both state a shared responsibility between both parents towards the creation of the child as the result of mixing the semen and menstrual blood while it is the same gendered parent that gives the life force or spirit. The belief splits as in Melanesia ‘the male and female substances are identified with separate parts of the body, while in South India they merge and are indistinguishable’ (Busby. 1997; 270). This results in the idea in South India that ‘one finds a definitively (wholly) male or female person’ (Busby 1997; 270). While in Melanesia this idea is less rigid as it allows for seeing persons as non-gendered as the body is made up of identifiable male and female parts so an effort has to be made to present a person as gendered. The distinction is made between ‘persons in Melanesia, composed of relations, and persons in South India, separate and yet connected’ (Busby 1997; 274). Throughout India there is also the Hijras (neither gender) who are usually men who have been ritually castrated and are considered close to a Goddess. Hijras are unique from men and women as they stand out with usual definitions; tending to be defined in terms of what they are not. They are people ‘excluded from the normal activities of men and women and who occupy their own restricted niche’ (Busby. 1997; 265). It is from this that it is made clear the importance of the connection between ‘gender identity, bodily difference and the expression of gender through reproductive potential’ (Busby. 1997; 266). A primary view of the hijra is their that they lack reproductive ability what is crucial in the definition of maleness. It is entirely through their inability and lacking of category and position within society that the hijra gain their definitive idea of self and identity as people.

I have to start by telling you that knowing your skin is the first step to a beautiful and healthy skin. We cannot pick the correct skin care regimen without this knowledge. There are four general types of skin: dry, which is generally manifested by a lack of shine, has fine pores, and it has the tendency to develop early wrinkles; oily, which is exactly the opposite, having extra shine and dilated pores, but without the proper skin care regimen, it can develop blackheads, acne and other problems; normal skin is the dreamy skin just perfect and with a balanced grade of hydration; sensitive skin is not that uncommon, and without the correct skin care regimen can lead to serious skin problems where you least want them. This type of skin has reddish appearance, it may itch, peel, and it feels very tight. Finally mix skin, which combine one or various types of skin in different parts of the face generally on the “T” zone (forehead, nose and shin). Dumile Feni was born in Worcester in Western Cape in South Africa at a time not known exactly. It is thought to have been between 1939 and 1944. South Africa was still marked by apartheid imposed by a white-minority government and maintained in the face of opposition by force and violence. Exfoliate skin regularly with a natural exfoliant such as glycolic acid to remove dead skin cells, balance oil production and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. Just like when one speaks about ancient beginnings and dwelling of the Africans in South Africa, “oral traditions provide information going back as early as 300 B.C., up to the sixteenth Century(when the Europeans came into South Africa), and subsequent centuries, that this data needs to utilized by the writers of African South African History, and begin to learn what South African History is ‘really’ about. This is what the first Hub has dealt with as much thoroughly as possible: “South African Culture, Customs and Practices Writ Large: Re-Morphed Cutlrual Renaissance against Dysfunctional Existence.” This Hub mentioned will be posted following this one, but it is the first Hub and this one I am presently onto is a sequel to it. In contemporary Native American literature, authors merge tribal and personal memories because the assimilation of Native American life into the fabric of American culture came with conveniences, hardships, and many ideological contradictions; ultimately, the modern Native American has found it difficult to find solace in the industrialized United States because it is constantly at odds with Native American tradition, of which the latter in its purest form had dissolved by the advent of the 20th century. In fact, at the advent of the 20th century, Native American literature acquired motifs of cultural dislocation and alienation which would become an enduring and reoccurring theme (Hoxie, 1996). For instance, in Vizenor’s Measuring My Blood,” the mixed-blood becomes a postmodern liberatory space in which contradictory histories and languages can create a trickster discourse” (Hoxie, 1996). Ultimately, this means his fiction resembles the disturbing, disrupting, and challenging aspects of postmodernity in relation to the plurality of contexts that construct Native American identity.
