“Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.” – Coco Chanel
Based in downtown Toronto, The Skiny is a lifestyle site focused on how to age amazingly by taking care of the largest organ you have: your skin! Because we’re big believers in correcting complexion woes rather than masking them with makeup, we cover the latest innovations in the world of skin care.
Helen comes from the print world. She spent five years as an editor for Oxygen, a women’s fitness magazine, and as a freelance writer for Elevate, Canada’s anti-aging magazine. Before that, she managed a salon and spa for a pretty decade. Fittingly, her motto in life is “Work hard, play hard – but see a good dermatologist so you don’t age prematurely!” She lives in downtown Toronto. Follow her on Twitter @helenvong
