What is Holistic Skin Health?

Holistic skin health goes beyond the surface, acknowledging that the skin is a reflection of our overall well-being. It involves treating the skin as an integral part of the whole body, considering the interconnection of physical, mental, and emotional aspects. Nowadays, skincare is often reduced to quick fixes and trendy products in our fast-paced lives. However, adopting a holistic approach is the key to radiant and healthy skin. In this blog post, we unravel the concept of holistic skin health, explore its components, and show how it can transform your skin.

 

1. Nutrition and skin:

The saying "you are what you eat" holds true when it comes to holistic skin health. A balanced and nutrient-rich diet plays a crucial role in supporting skin health. Antioxidant-rich foods, essential fatty acids, and hydration contribute to a glowing complexion from within.

 

2. Mind-Body Connection:

Stress and emotions can manifest on the skin. Practices like mindfulness, meditation, and adequate sleep are integral to holistic skincare. Managing stress enhances mental well-being and positively impacts the skin's appearance.

Apps such as Headspace, Insight Timer and Clam are great to start when incorporating mindfulness into your lifestyle. 

 

3. Hydration Matters:

We all know the importance of drinking water, but it is often overlooked as it's readily available. Proper hydration internally and topically by skin soaking keeps the skin plump, supple, and flexible. It supports its natural functions, such as detoxification.

 

4. Skincare Products:

Holistic skincare embraces the use of Corneotheraputic skincare, by avoiding disruptive ingredients such as colours, fragrance and preservatives and instead using supportive skin identical and bio-memetic ingredients. 

 

5. Movement:

Regular exercise promotes blood circulation, delivering essential nutrients to the skin and aiding the detoxification of waste products via the lymphatic system.

6. Beauty Sleep:

Adequate, quality sleep is essential for skin regeneration and repair. During deep sleep, the body produces growth hormones that aid in maintaining and repairing the skin.

 

7. Elimination:

Proper elimination processes (yes, we mean poop) are vital for expelling toxins from the body. A healthy digestive system reflects positively on the skin, supporting a healthy, radiant glow. 

Our favourite product to support elimination is the Bestow Gut Love+ Capsules; trust us, you won't have a problem pooping ever again!

 

Holistic skin health is not a quick fix; it means addressing lifestyle factors to transform your skin. It takes time, diligence, and commitment. However, by addressing the root causes of skin issues rather than merely treating the symptoms, you create sustainable, long-term improvements.
