Published on Feb 7th, 2013 by Blog Admin

Stretch marks can be a common result of weight change, rapid growth, or certain inherited conditions.

Published on Feb 15th, 2010 by Blog Admin

Many of us are familiar with the allure of the beauty counter and all of its creams, serums, and fancy packaging. It is very easy to get drawn in by all of the exaggerated claims and the celebrity endorsements that the big cosmetic companies use in marketing their skin care products.
