As a teen Marcy used her fair share of harsh prescriptions from dermatologists to try to clear up her acne, but she was always left with a burning feeling on her skin and little progress. She thought there must be a better way, and became interested in using holistic and natural skincare, nutrition, and alternative medicine treatments to treat her skincare issues. As she got older, she saw many young women her age already turning to toxic injections and dramatic procedures in attempt to keep a youthful look, and again Marcy felt there must a more natural way to achieve anti-aging.
