Beautylish is packed with terrific information aimed at young teens and is a great outlet for young men and women who want to launch their careers in the beauty business (http://thenextweb.com/apps/2011/03/21/all-star-investor-backed-beautylish-is-a-social-network-for-the-beauty-biz/). It is a great place for teens that are beginning to realize the importance of skin care and cosmetics to come and become more educated on their skin. The skin we are born with is the only skin that we are going to get so we must take care of it as best we can.

But they feel confident that the experts that are on Beautylish will always have the right answers.
