The HealthCentral Network Adds Skin Care Site to Its Web Properties
Date:11/28/2007

ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In recognition of National Healthy Skin Month, the HealthCentral Network, Inc. (http://www.HealthCentral.com) today has launched MySkinCareConnection.com, a condition-specific site that educates and informs online users about acne, aging skin, rosacea and other skin-related problems. MySkinCareConnection.com provides reliable medical information and a community forum for patients, medical professionals and others in the Skin Care community.

MySkinCareConnection.com includes guides to help consumers understand the basics of a number of skin problems, as well as information on medications and cosmetic procedures used to treat an array of skin conditions. The site also provides a support network for those struggling with skin disorders such as acne outbreaks, wrinkled skin and rosacea.

Joining the panel of experts on MySkinCareConnection.com is Sue Chung, an accomplished writer and editor who has written for several publications, including In Style magazine's health and beauty department. At MySkinCareConnection.com, Chung will be addressing a range of skin health and beauty issues in her weekly blog -- from questions on acne and dry skin to tips about getting rid of cellulite and unwanted hair. She will also be writing regular reviews on the latest skin care products in the skin health, anti-aging, and cosmetics industries.

"Working with MySkinCareConnection.com is a great opportunity to explore my own fascination with skin care and help HealthCentral's readers filter the myths from the realities of modern consumer skin care," Chung said.

"Skin conditions affect people of all ages -- from teens struggling with acne to those concerned with aging skin -- and we understand that finding accurate information and advice is a vital part of treating those conditions effectively," said Chris Schroeder, CEO and President of The HealthCentral Network. "Sue Chung's experience and expertise in the skin care and beauty industry will be a great addition to the HealthCentral.com team, and will provide the MySkinCareConnection.com community with a trusted advocate."
