Holistic skin care involves looking at the whole person to understand why the skin may be showing signs of inflammation or irritation. Rather than taking a solely disease based approach to reach our skincare outcomes, a wellness base model of care is preferred.
Conversation around lifestyle, stress, ways of eating, personal care and self love, medications and social habits aim to uncover factors that may be contributing to your skin (and you) not feeling its best.
Toxins such as artificial fragrance, pesticides, excess hormones and medications place a load on the liver and can lead to presentations like acne, irritated skin and pigmentation. We talk about strategies to help ease the burden by making some small changes to how you do things at home.
Looking at your overall health and honing in on why your skin is suffering from certain seemingly benign habits can help you to understand why your skin is unhappy.
Recognising the connection between aspects of life and not only skin health but overall physical, mental and spiritual health, we can better appreciate the need for holistic care as a way of living.
