Making Good Happen
Let's start here.
Our skin is incredibly resilient (but it does have its limits!). This high-fidelity organ is often our first line of defense against infectious pathogens, sun and other radiation, air and chemical toxins, hormonal flux, genetic factors and disease stressors. Keeping our skin strong and healthy can be challenging, but it is not without far-reaching rewards. In addition to disease prevention, good skin health promotes happiness, confidence, personal and even career success

MEET DR. BARON
What really seems to define this "new normal" for me is the immediate reality that good and better health makes us stronger. Just about anything we encounter on a daily basis may take a toll on our skin, yet its tireless regenerative capacity is a force to behold. Let's keep the odds in our favor.

As with other aspects of health and longevity, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
