A Diamond in the Rough: Becky’s Skin Care Plus

Like many of our readers, I live in Fort Wayne but drive outside the county for work. When you are used to the plethora of amenities that Fort Wayne has to offer, sometimes new shops and different tastes are difficult to find in smaller cities like Auburn.
