The award, which was entered in the Midwest-South region for publications with a circulation under 80,000, was bestowed on the Skin Inc. magazine columns “Good Hands: Back to the Beginning” and “Good Hands: Stepping Up for Success.” Those pieces, written by Dermalogica’s Annet King, ran in the February 2007 and July 2007 issues of Skin Inc. magazine, respectively.
