Skin is the largest organ of the human body with its own ecosystem of microbes (“skin microbiome”) that are in constant interaction with our gut, our immune function, our hormones, and more. So it’s more accurate to view chronic skin issues as a an “alarm” going off to tell us that our gut, our immune function, or our hormones, or some other major body system isn’t functioning optimally.
Since skin is on the surface of our bodies, many people assume that all skin problems are a result of external factors, and that just applying topical creams and lotions externally is the best way to improve their skin. But that’s just not the case.
It’s fine to apply products topically to protect and soothe the skin. But treating symptoms with topical treatments alone isn’t going to fix the source of our skin problems; it requires a more holistic approach.
What is holistic skin care?
Skin concerns such as redness, rosacea, acne, eczema, etcetera all begin inside of the body. And often times as consequence of the digestive tract, or due to high stress levels. The traditional approach of following a specific skin treatment only more often than not results ineffective or produces only short term relief.
Holistic skin care is an ancient practice that involves treating the skin in a “whole” body care approach. It’s an all-inclusive approach to a healthy body, mind and spirit that can result in healthy radiant skin. Addressing skin care is deeper than the surface needs of the skin. There are many factors that can cause a breakout to include diet, hormonal imbalances, stress levels, physical activity, menstrual cycles, bowel movements and others. All of these factors impact the flow of energy within the body. If your energy is blocked, it’s not flowing freely which can cause the body and skin to have an inflamed response. Have you ever wondered why you are experiencing a break out during stressful times or that time of the month? Skin health and appearance are indicators of all that is going on inside to include illness, hormonal imbalances, stress levels, and diet.
