Friedman says she receives about three to five requests a day from organizations wanting to use her jewelry in their auctions. As the jewelry has grown in popularity over the years since the company's creation, Friedman estimates sales from Jewels with a Purpose have generated millions of dollars for the charities that have sold them. "I knew that no matter what I would choose to do as far as work, it would have an aspect of giving back, and that's what I did," she says, though she admits the degree of her success is still surprising. "I'm very positive and when I know that I put all of my soul and energy into what I do, the possibilities are endless, but I never thought I'd come this far because my hope was not how big the business would grow, my hope was always to serve one nonprofit at a time, and I knew that if I just give a little bit every day, it would add up to a lot more." jewelswithapurpose.com If you've not yet discovered Skin Laundry, a unique chain of clinics offering its signature laser facials that debuted in Del Mar Highlands last September, there's yet another opportunity to see what you've been missing with the recent opening of a second location in Westfield UTC. e sleek-chic clinics boast state-of- the-art laser skin treatments that are identical to those you'd receive in a dermatologist's office, but with an accessibility that's anything but. According to Skin Laundry CEO Gregg rogmartin, the treatments are a fraction of dermatologists' prices, and the locations — malls and shopping centers rather than medical complexes — offer far more flexible hours. e protocols, which rogmartin says are equally effective, are modified to require little if any downtime after each service, as opposed to more intense treatments like Fraxel or CO2 lasers. So, while he says many of his clients can afford the premium dermatologist-offered invasive treatments once or twice a year, the appeal of not missing out on regular activity holds tremendous value. Instead, Skin Laundry offers a membership schedule that ensures clients make their skincare part of their monthly routine. "Just like seeing your personal trainer or if you belong to a gym, consistency is key," explains rogmartin. Like a gym membership, rogmartin says it's a misconception to think of this kind of personal care as a simple luxury. "I would say 85 percent of our members are coming in because they have a serious skin condition that they want to correct: acne, melasma, pigmentation, rosacea are the top issues," he notes. With the opening of the UTC clinic, Skin Laundry also launched new, upgraded services that boast even greater strength and faster results with fewer treatments: the Power Signature facial, the Power Signature+, which includes a targeted ermo Fractional spot treatment, and the Power Duo, which is a more powerful facial plus full-face ermo Fractional and additional ermo Spot treatments. Proprietary skincare products are also available on-site that are specifically formulated for post-laser skin, when absorption rates are as high as 90 percent. skinlaundry.com Skin Laundry << JEWELS WITH A PURPOSE: PHOTO BY VINCENT KNAKAL SKIN LAUNDRY: PHOTO COURTESY OF SKIN LAUNDRY Jewels with a Purpose Global Partnership Director Angie Lasagne and Founder Eliza Friedman
