Nu You Skin Care Nurtures Glowing, Healthy Skin from the Inside Out

by Gisele R. Siebold

NuYouLogo_0417Healing is the cornerstone of Nu You Skin Care and Wellness Centers, with locations in Ambler and Langhorne, where an atmosphere of healing and rejuvenation pampers the body and soul.

Gerry Christopher, owner and licensed esthetician, believes education is key to helping clients understand that healthy skin comes from the inside out. “We assist clients in making good decisions about what they put on their skin and into their body.
