As the spring weather gets warmer, it'll be no surprise if you start craving a fresh salad to cool down in the heat. Here are some "superfoods" that you can easily add to your next homemade salad!
- Quinoa – Is a low-carb protein containing all nine essential amino acids, iron, fiber and antioxidants. Quinoa can be used as the base of your salad, or you can sprinkle on top of leafy greens. To give your quinoa more flavour, cook with chicken stock instead of water.
Our new "Member Spotlight" series features some of our skin gym members - you'll learn why they love their membership, what results they’ve seen, and what their favourite products are!
So, without further adieu, we'd like to introduce you to our very first featured member - Jennifer Virani!

We know your name! But do you prefer to be called something else?
“Jenn, Pennifer (as called by my mother).”
Tell us your job title or something about yourself that's work-related. Whatever way you identify how you spend most of your time!!
“I am an executive assisant at Raymond James Ltd. - a financial firm. Basically I'm a paper pusher. I am also a full-time wife and mother to my 5-year-old fur baby.”
Why do you love your membership?
“I live for my monthly facials now! Before getting my skin gym membership I had never had a facial; I never really treated myself to anything outside of pedicures!! Now I really look forward to my 'date' with skoah and enjoy that hour of bliss where it's all about my skin and keeping it healthy.”

Remember the TV show Seinfeld? Lately I find myself thinking about a particular episode of that sublimely brilliant comedy. You see, we are getting closer and closer to the opening of skoah Newbury, our second location in Boston. This is both incredibly exciting and incredibly stressful. Trying to manage our existing location as well as all the construction, hiring, marketing, purchasing, etc. that goes into a second store is definitely a challenge. So from time to time I find myself quoting Frank Constanza and silently screaming in my head "Serenity now!"
The world of skin care can be very confusing and the sheer amount of articles on the Internet can make it difficult to identify accurate and reliable information. Articles often contain partial information and authors can have weak credentials, if any.
In light of this, I thought it would be beneficial to provide some clarity around the use of preservatives and parabens in our skin care products.
