One of our favorite writers, Leah Argento, is geared up to go back to school to study skin aesthetics. At 47 with a teenage daughter, this is no small feat. Yet Leah is truly a role model without fear, and she has tirelessly worked for FutureDerm for the past two years, through her amazing writing, in-depth research, and formidable selling skills. She is someone I consider a friend as well as a co-worker, and FutureDerm would not be the same without her.
With that said, please take 10 seconds to vote for Leah to win a $2,000 scholarship through BeautyChangesLives.org to return to school to become an aesthetician. It’s as simple as clicking on “VOTE” at the bottom of the Leah’s Beauty Changes Lives.org page - I promise!
