About the Author
Top celebrity esthetician Scott-Vincent Borba is a pioneer in the nutraceutical field and an ongoing beauty expert for multiple syndicated mediums including Extra!, QVC, and E! News as well as The Rachael Ray Show and Good Day LA. Yet as a teen he suffered terrible cystic acne, a case of rosacia, and was overweight in all the wrong places. Ironically, despite his insecurities, he fell into a successful career as a product development and marketing specialist in the health and beauty industry. While helping care for his father who was diagnosed with prostate challenges and pancreatic cancer, Borba discovered how nutraceuticals could help heal the body, as well as the skin. With the help of product specialists, he began researching how combining topical ingredients with ingestible ingredients could achieve radiant health--and skin--and his BORBA line of products was born. Not only did his own skin transform, he has helped some of the top models and actors achieve flawless, glowing, and healtier skin. His BORBA line of nutraceutical products, supplements, and waters are now sold in 300 luxury stores throughout the country; 1,000 nutritional stores; Walgreens; and on HSN. He has received coverage in People, US Weekly, OK!, Cosmopolitan, Elle, InStyle, Prevention, the New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.Writer Ali Morra-Pearlman has covered health, nutrition, food, cosmetics, and beauty in personal features, columns, and reviews for AOL, the Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, New York Sun, New York Post, New York Observer, New York Times Sunday Styles, New York Resident, Boston Herald, and Chicago RedEye newspapers.
