Skin Authority Announces Two Ways to Celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 1-14. Nominate Your Favorite Teacher for a Pampering Experience.

Carlsbad, CA, April 29, 2012 --( Pink slips. Packed classrooms. Not enough supplies for students. America’s teachers have a lot on their plates. A survey by the National School Supply and Equipment Association found that teachers spent a total of $1.3 billion out of pocket on classroom supplies during the 2010 school year. For Teacher Appreciation Week, leading healthy skin lifestyle company Skin Authority and nearly 50 top spas and resorts invite you to help put your favorite teachers’ face in the spotlight.

Through May 14, which includes Teacher Appreciation Week (7-11), TOUCH Transforms Teachers offers two ways to touch the hearts of teachers:
1. Nominate: Share the story of why your favorite teacher makes a difference in your life and nominate that teacher to win a Skin Authority spa facial experience via Skin Authority’s Facebook contest. Through May 14, written nominations will be accepted via Facebook. Top finalists will receive $50 Skin Authority gift cards.

2. Donate: For every customer who purchases $50 or more of Skin Authority product from or a participating retail location through May 14, Skin Authority will donate a Free $50 gift certificate to a teacher of their choice. Gift Certificates will be delivered by e-mail to the teacher and will include a personalized message from the donor.

Skin Authority CEO Celeste Hilling is leading the TOUCH Transforms Teachers movement. Her San Diego-based company has hundreds of teachers as clients, “We listen to teacher’s stories of struggling to keep their classrooms stocked with basic supplies. Teachers are America’s heroes. While we can’t give every teacher $500, we can give them a wellness lift and self-esteem boost.”
