The skin is our largest organ and one of the most complicated. It plays many roles in the maintenance of life and health and is often the first indication or sign of problems with other organ systems. It helps regulate temperature, immune defense, and even vitamin production. Yet we are most concerned with making it “look pretty” or covering it up.
The global skin care market is worth hundreds of billions of dollars. But nearly half of that comes from antiaging skin care focused on only 10% of the surface area of the skin (the face and décolleté). What about the rest of the skin?
In this episode, we look at the other 90% of the skin, the professional approach to services, and the booming market of total body skin care (retail)! Join Ella, Maggie, and Tracy as they discuss how to be a part of the growing awareness that the skin below the collarbone needs antiaging love too!
