The East-West Secret to Unlocking Beautiful Skin

Beautiful skin starts on the inside (which is why our slogan is to reveal your beauty from the inside out). Let’s talk about some ways you can incorporate holistic skincare, pulling from the wisdom of Eastern traditions and advancements Western science offers to nurture your skin's health.


Start by incorporating antioxidant-rich foods like berries, leafy greens, and omega-3 fatty acids into your diet which supports cellular renewal and overall vitality. Our skin is constantly undergoing a process of regeneration, where old, damaged cells are replaced by new ones. This cellular turnover is essential for maintaining a youthful appearance, as it helps to slough off dead skin cells, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote an even skin tone.


Hydrate your body with plenty of water and consider incorporating herbal teas such as chamomile or green tea, known for their calming and antioxidant properties. A lack of hydration coupled with stress is a dangerous recipe to manifest as pain in the body and quickly reflects on our skin.


Craft a personalized skincare ritual tailored to your unique needs. For example, if you have dry skin, consider incorporating nourishing oils like jojoba or rosehip into your daily routine. Those with oily or acne-prone skin may benefit from gentle exfoliation using ingredients like rice bran or papaya enzymes.


Integrate mindfulness practices into your daily routine to mitigate the impact of stress on your skin. Try incorporating techniques like deep breathing exercises, yoga, qigong, or meditation to promote relaxation and balance cortisol levels, which can help reduce inflammation and support skin health.


Embrace the natural process of aging as an opportunity for self-care and growth. Consider incorporating collagen-boosting foods like bone broth or collagen supplements into your diet to support skin elasticity and firmness. When seeking out treatments, opt for something like Microneedling with PRP to help your body’s production of elastin and collagen. And remember, consistency is key—by adopting these holistic principles of East-West medicine, you can cultivate a radiant complexion that reflects your inner vitality… and, of course, we’re here to help you get results faster.
