Although our skin is the largest organ of our body, it is often the most overlooked for proper health care. The food we eat or don't eat, the liquid we drink or don't drink and the products we use or don't use, can negatively impact the health of our skin. It reveals the stories of our lives – our level of stress, the time we sleep, our good and bad habits and the amount of exposure to weather – temperatures, sun and wind.
While protecting us from the elements and microorganisms, skin helps to regulate our body temperature and permits the sensations of touch, heat and cold. It's working hard for us each day through its three main functions of protection, regulation and sensation.
Our approach stems from owner Deb's belief that we must take care of our skin, just as we do our other vital organs like our brain, heart and lungs. And just like our brain, our skin is unique and needs an individualized system for care. We are here to provide that for you.
