Case Study Wanda B. Young is a 47-year-old white female who, over the past ten years: spent $10,000 on a face lift spent $5,000 on liposuction had laser resurfacing at $2,000 had her hair highlighted and conditioned had her nails done and pedicures weekly She spares no expense to try and keep her youthful appearance, including all of the most expensive skin care products she can find at department stores.
Still Wanda B. Young struggles. Despite all she does for the outside she looks in the mirror and still does not have that “healthy youthful glow.” She seems to lose ground faster than she can make an appointment for a new expensive procedure! Wanda B. is not Happy
Wanda B. is not Healthy Wanda B. is not even trying to be healthy: She refuses to pay $30.00 a month on a multivitamin Every Monday she starts the newest fad diet She smokes on occasion She consumes alcohol regularly She views a gym membership as a waste of money She thinks sodas and chocolate are part of the food pyramid She never wears a sunscreen and visits the tanning bed weekly.

The skin reflects the health and nutrition that is put into the body All of the outside treatments can not make up for poor nutrition and poor lifestyle choices that affect the inside Healthy Skin = Healthy Living
