Skin Nourishment 101

by Christy Hall April 28, 2020

Just like we need to feed our body certain nutrients for health, we need to feed our skin for optimal health and beauty as well. To optimally nourish your skin, here are some tips: 

  1. Skin nourishment and overall health starts on the inside.  Eat a mostly (90%+) plant- based diet with low glycemic index vegetables and fruits.  Supplement this with lean, healthy, organic proteins.  Consume healthy fats like nuts, olive oil and avocado daily. This diet will provide your skin with proteins to build collagen and antioxidants and fatty acids to decrease inflammation and collagen breakdown.

Exfoliation 101

by Christy Hall April 21, 2020

Cellular Turnover

The health of your epidermis is most important for the hydration and radiance of your skin and cell turnover or natural exfoliation is the name of the game here. These cells are CONSTANTLY shedding, and it is important to understand that this natural process slows down as we age which results in a thickening of the stratum corneum giving the skin a dull appearance, as well as a rough and dry feel to the surface. If this layer of the skin is not shedding optimally, then we need to step in with topical or physical means to help increase exfoliation and natural cell turnover. This is a simple first step to more ageless and healthy functioning skin.

5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out

5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out

by Christy Hall March 24, 2020

We all know that beauty starts on the inside.  Let’s look at some ways to go beyond skin deep to get the results you desire. 

  1. Be kind to yourself:  Be conscious of your thoughts. Notice when you feel yourself going into a negative state. Because of our survival instincts, humans have a negativity bias built into our psyche. This was helpful back when we needed to remember not to eat a poisonous plant in the wild, or that a tiger lived in that particular cave. But in modern life it is used to ruminate on current dramas, past hurts, or future anxieties. See if you can notice when you go down your particular rabbit hole, and see if you can change your thoughts to kindness and gratitude. If not, just focus on the word STOP.

Skin Health & Well Aging Part 1: Skin Function

by Christy Hall March 09, 2020

Understanding how the skin functions as a whole will explain why some topical (on the skin) interventions work, and others don’t. The intent of any good skincare regimen should be on bringing the skin’s natural function back to optimum performance, much like it was back in your younger years. It is important NOT to just apply a topical “Band-Aid” on skin issues with moisturizers or organic oils. You need to get your skin back to a healthier state of functioning on all levels by feeding it the right nutrients.
