GOOD SKIN CARE BEGINS EARLY: FREE WORKSHOP FOR MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS
Girls Incorporated of the Island City is hosting a free workshop on healthy skin for middle and high school girls.
For many girls, adolescence is a time where they notice changes happening to their bodies and skin. Problem skin, like acne, can lead to poor self-esteem. A Bold and Healthy Approach to Skin Care is a workshop that provides girls resources on good skin care. Participants will receive important information about nutrition and how it relates to healthy skin, about the value of a daily skin care routine, and about affordable skin care products. There will be a fun, interactive demonstration that will include tips on cleansing, exfoliating and more.
“When asked to select a topic for a workshop, the girls in our program unanimously voted skin care as a top priority,” said Teen Coordinator, Diana Cristales. “In order to make a good first impression, many girls want to find out more about how to but their best face forward.”
To register for A Bold and Healthy Approach to Skin Care workshop, please call Diana Cristales, Teen Coordinator, at 510-521-1743 ext. 208. This workshop is FREE and is for all girls in the 6th -12th grades.
