‘Your skin is a mirror of what is going on inside’
Every month Louise Gray brings you great skincare advice and the latest treatments.
Our Skin Is Mother Nature’s Barometer
I started my professional career as a registered general nurse, working extensively in intensive care.
With that type of nursing you quickly get a grasp of how the body works as a whole and learn that you can’t compartmentalise things. I often saw how my patient’s facial skin reacted to various medications and how stress from illness, disease or trauma is portrayed on the skin.
Nowadays, working as a skin care therapist, I still believe in working with the body in its entirety when it comes to achieving optimum skin health. My mission is to provide my clients with outstanding results.
Bigger test within the para:
That goal has taught me that topical products are only half of the equation when it comes to great skin. They’re often used as a band aid, treating or masking what’s happened internally.
What if we could help address skin issues before they reach the surface?
Targeting the cells at their source deep in the skin (where a topical cream could never reach), and feeding the body with the necessary ingredients to make them form and function perfectly. I believe this is the foundation to optimum skin health, and my recommendation is to nourish your skin from the inside out!
We Are What We Eat
The old saying of ‘we are what we eat’ is very true. When we eat, the body makes sure that vital organs like the brain, heart and liver get first divvy of all nutrients. The skin only gets what’s left, so even if you’re eating a good diet you may not be eating enough to nourish your skin assisting it in thriving, healing and glowing.
Two Amazing Skincare Supplements
After a lot of research, I am very proud to let you know I am working with two supplements that act beautifully together. Add them with the right topical products for your skin and they deliver that goal of mine: outstanding results.
Bestow Beauty Oil
This essential fatty acid (EFA) oil has long been a favourite of mine for myriad skin conditions ranging from acne to increased sensitivity, and for stabilising oil flow from excessive oiliness to extreme dryness. It moisturises your skin from within. When the skin is rich in EFAs, the oil naturally makes its way to the surface and forms a healing, anti-inflammatory, protective outer layer. It also helps prevent skin congestion and ‘breakouts’ and can even help dissolve existing blockages as long as you reduce your intake of congesting foods.
Skin Accumax for Acne
I’m also very excited to introduce Skin Accumax, an award-wining, scientifically advanced, nutritional supplement which works to encourage clear, flawless skin. It targets acne head on from the inside out, won’t cause dryness or flakiness and doesn’t contain harsh chemicals or drugs.
It Just Makes Sense
The results we have seen are very impressive. As skin problems are a reflection of an internal imbalance, it makes sense to target the source from the inside.
