St. Paul, MN, December 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Face2Face Skincare and Makeup Studio in Roseville is committed to not only helping clients have healthier skin, but to helping girls around the world who are victims of sexual slavery. “It’s not just a problem in other parts of the world but right here in Minnesota,” says Cynthia Kretschmar, owner of the new studio. According to a story last year by WCCO’s Liz Collin, every year hundreds of girls are abducted and shipped out on ships from Duluth. Face2Face Skincare is raising awareness of the issue on their website and with posters in the studio. Five percent of all sales are donated to Shared Hope International which fights sex trafficking around the world with efforts to prevent, restore, and bring justice. Several new clients have said they chose Face2Face over other options because they wanted to help those ensnared in sexual slavery. Kretschmar observes, “People are compassionate and willing to help; they just need to be made aware and be given the opportunity to help.”
“Skincare has to be about more than beauty; it’s about good health and community,” says Kretschmar. The natural condition of the skin is to be healthy. Modern lifestyles and some bad choices, as well as disease, interfere with skin’s natural function. Face2Face uses all natural products and treatments to restore skin to its natural condition – healthy. Similarly, the battle against human trafficking works to restore women to their natural condition – safe and free. Kretschmar says, “We take corporate social responsibility seriously. We take our philosophy of natural restoration and apply it to the community; it keeps our priorities straight.” When beauty alone is the goal, unhealthy treatment choices can be made for quick results that can lead to long-term skin damage. When healthy skin is the goal, beauty is a natural outcome and it can last a lifetime because the skin isn’t damaged in the treatment process.
Cynthia Kretschmar, one time Vice President of a Barbizon Modeling School, has 25 years of experience in the cosmetics and skin care industry. After working as a consultant for Lancome Cosmetics and Neiman Marcus, she became a licensed esthetician and worked in a medspa for several years. She has a B.S. in business management from Northwestern College and chose to open her own skincare business so she could better pursue her passion for a natural approach to skin health and have an impact on the community she serves.
Shared Hope International strives to prevent the conditions that foster sex slavery, restore victims of sex trafficking, and bring justice to vulnerable women and children. They work at every level of the problem: they provide training to aid in prevention; they rescue human trafficking victims and restore them to freedom and safety; they work to bring justice where human trafficking occurs.
