Defining a fresh image

A gentle spirit, a caring attitude and the capacity to support women’s healthy choices describe Snellville’s A Defined Image owner, Barbara McClure. “Our skin shows how we feel inside,” says Barbara. “We need to make healthy choices for our bodies and minds.” Keeping our skin healthy is just one part of our image.
