Healthy and beautiful

Health and beauty are essential things for both young and old people. All of us need to be healthy and to look our best.
Some Cambodian teenagers try to set the fashion pace by adopting foreign styles. They enjoy experimenting with different hair styles and colours, and adopt the latest fashion trends (often following their favourite celebrities) to show everyone they are modern people.

Too much dye, however, can affect the health of their hair. This has become a problem in Cambodia because of the poor quality of hair-care products that carry no trademark or company name (3-4).

On a different topic, one of our reporters has found a case of surrogacy that he learned about when he was an intern in India. He has found similar cases in Cambodia, but people seem reluctant
to talk about them (6-7).

On a happier note, Lift  has found a dedicated young man who is studying in the fields of both health and foreign languages.

He has a lot of achievements to his credit, and he teaches other young people in his free time (8).

These days, many people, especially teenagers, are interested in plastic surgery, which prompted Lift  to make it a topic for discussion (9).
