“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”

—Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher

Inspiration can come from many places. Although it is preferable that it comes in a positive package, sometimes that isn’t the case. I received an e-mail recently from a reader who had a concern about some of the imagery used within an article from a previous issue. Although she had a point and her problem with the imagery had some validity, she also included several sentences in her e-mail that insinuated that myself and my team don’t work very hard to provide the very best content for our readers. This I took issue with, knowing full well the countless hours and back-and-forth with authors and art and sales and marketing that we do on a daily basis in order to maintain the integrity that Skin Inc. is known for. Let me assure you, our job is not easy, cushy or a constant joyride of exotic travel and delicious facials.
