BABY CORE FUSION, PAPA FRED DEVITO

By: Madison Wright
Blog Coordinator + Core Fusion Teacher

Father’s Day is a national institution, every year on the third Sunday in June; we pay tribute and thanks to more than 70 million papas here in the United States. The year 1910 marked the first celebration of Father’s Day in honor of a widower raising six children all by himself. Not to mention the relentless, laborious effort it took to provide for and ensure the wellbeing of six children in the absence of modern technology. That man deserves an entire month of tribute and praise! A lot has changed since the inception of Father’s Day we’ve gone from the first Model-Ts to battery operated Teslas, from sending messages to friends in a matter of weeks to sending messages in a matter of seconds.

BALANCING ACT

By: Susan Tomback
VP of Sales and Marketing

We’ve all heard the phrase “pH balanced,” but what does that mean to us in the world of skincare? Potential of hydrogen, or pH, measures the amount of acidity or alkalinity in a substance, and since our bodies are composed of over 70% water, this is an important element to watch. Though the general rule is that maintaining a slightly alkaline environment in the body helps to prevent disease, as bacteria and viruses, even malignant cells, cannot survive in an alkaline environment (drink your Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, people!), the opposite is true for the skin.
