It’s no secret that I love Nadine Artemis of Living Libations. Nadine is an aromacologist and an all around expert in all things natural and gentle for the skin. Her explanation of how diet and hormone balance can affect acne and other issues is so simply stated that I had to post about it. You ARE what you eat and what you absorb! If you have been told by your dermatologist or esthetician that your diet plays no role in your skin issues, it’s time to find a new practitioner!
There are many things I can do topically as an esthetician to help strengthen, cleanse, soften and nourish my clients’ skin. However, without a nourishing diet, these benefits will be short lived and not fully realized. That is precisely why I am working hard to earn my Master’s degree in Holistic Nutrition. I plan on combining nutritional counseling, aromatherapy and skincare in a complete holistic wellness program for the skin. As a bonus, when you upgrade and clean up your diet while taking care of your skin – you will see not only prettier skin, but enjoy many health benefits as well!
