The Skin Games is an annual competition that helps licensed skin care professionals show what results they can achieve by using professional-grade product lines, with an aim of helping them to share their knowledge, skills, experience, and results with the world. This year’s competition also included a compassionate category, where entrants competed to win a donation to their chosen charity.
The Skin Games’ compassionate category saw 10 finalists compete for the top three monetary prizes to help their chosen charity by bringing awareness through a game changing act of kindness. Lyn Ross entered to highlight Foster Care Support Foundation’s Prom-A-Palooza annual event and the financial needs of the foundation.
For the past 17 years, Foster Care Support Foundation has hosted an annual Prom-A-Palooza event to help teenagers in foster care with everything they need to shine on prom night. For the past five years, Lyn Ross has recruited over 60 aesthetician and makeup artist volunteers through her spa business, Institut’ DERMed Clinical Skin Care and Cosmetics, and they have served more than a thousand young ladies at the Prom-A-Palooza event.
By competing in the Skin Games’ compassionate category, Ross won not only much needed funding for her chosen charity but also helped to bring awareness and inspire other beauty professionals to seek out how they can support young girls in the foster care system in their community.
Taking home an award and a prize donation for the Foster Care Support Foundation, Ross was delighted to present a check for $5,000 to Rachel Ewald, founder of Foster Care Support Foundation.
