DermStore.com is proud to partner with several of its makeup and skin care brands to support The Angel Faces Organization. This extraordinary nonprofit organization strives to provide innovative healing retreats and ongoing support for adolescent girls with facial disfigurements. This June, attendees of the Angel Faces retreat will receive products from several of DermStore.com’s generous brands (see below for a complete list of brands graciously supplying cosmetics and skincare items to the attendees).
Angel Faces is a unique camp environment that helps its participants achieve their optimum potential and develop meaningful relationships with themselves, their families and their communities. The five day retreat provides a safe and fun environment, while also addressing issues such as grief, drama and self-esteem.
Angel Faces is the creation of Lesia Cartelli. A burn victim at the age of 9, Lesia recognized the unique psychosocial needs of adolescent girls with facial disfigurement as they navigate the developmental tasks of adolescence.
Each June, twenty girls from ages 11-19 anxiously visit the Angel Faces Retreat. The goal is for them to leave with confidence, new friends and the tools to stay positive and get past their insecurities. In addition to a fun comfortable camp-like environment, the retreat focuses on personal therapy and social skills. Activities and discussions include self-leadership, goal setting, access to a mental health professional, a spa experience and a private consultation with a corrective cosmetic professional, all of whom specialize in damaged skin and scarring.
DermStore.com and its partnering brands are thrilled to take part in this wonderful organization and the transformation of these young women. To find out more about Angel Faces or to donate, please visit www.angelfacesretreat.org.
