Diet, the environment, stress, and prescription medicines make us all more susceptible to autoimmune diseases, allergies, and chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and moisture imbalance.
What we apply on our skin is absorbed into the body and what we put in our body is reflected on our skin. Sulfates, parabens, gluten protein, and fillers found in most skincare products enter the bloodstream, causing the internal organs to work overtime in purging these toxins through the skin.
After a personal bout with cystic acne – a devastating side effect of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome – I immersed myself in the study of herbs, natural supplements, enzymatic therapies, and other holistic skincare and diet methodologies. I made it my mission and purpose to elevate my lifestyle by changing my diet and discontinuing the use of artificial hormones.
Using a purely holistic approach, I was able to safely and successfully detoxify my body and take control of my condition. Today, I treat and educate my clients on how they, too, can achieve enduring skin health.
Before becoming a certified Esthetician, I managed one of the most popular luxury day spas on the West Coast. My extensive knowledge of skincare ingredients and healthy eating allows me to pass on to my clients the importance of caring for our skin as the largest, sexiest organ in our bodies.
(Letters From The CEO)
Considered a pioneering force as a successful African-America entrepreneur and owner-operator in the trucking business, Riley Lester and RL Corporation is on course to quadruple his company’s earning power by 2021 - by revolutionizing how the transport industry runs its business.
It’s called the “One Stop Truck Shop,” and it would break new ground in the transportation services by empowering independent truckers with a centralized hub to not only park their trucks, but to fuel their trucks, wash their trucks, service their trucks, and obtain new parts for their trucks – all in one licensed, insured, safe and secure location at the heart of where they work.
The bedrock foundation for the “One Stop Truck Shop” rests on the purchase of a three-to-five-acre parcel of opportunity-rich asphalt in Harbor City, CA – at the intersection of Southern California’s trucking and shipping industries. To ensure lasting partnerships and maintain the highest standards of quality control, RL Corporation would divide and lease its land to successful local vendors, from the parking spaces to the parts shop.
Yearly revenue within five years is being projected to reach six million dollars. Lease income from all service departments and parking spaces, along with sales receipts from the facilities’ multiple maintenance stores, would boost RL Corporation’s revenue exponentially and raise the company’s industry profile.
Also, RL Corporation and its new venture will stimulate the Long Beach economy, and seek to promote minority employment and the hiring of women by enlisting the very best the area’s workforce has to offer.
As a 15-year veteran in all phase of the construction transport business, RL Trucking & Dispatch is a full-service, licensed transport brokering that operates 24/7 with a history of job collaborations on some of the most impactful construction projects in California history.
