Our friends at Bestow Beauty often say that what you put on your skin is only half the story. We couldn’t agree more.
We offer four professional skincare ranges at Jamele Skincare because we know that topical skincare is very important. However, unless your skin receives the key skin nutrients which are the building blocks for healthy skin, your skin will never look as good as it could. This is the reason that, when women book in for our one-hour holistic skincare consultation, one of the first things we do is to look at their typical weekday and weekend diet.
Many people don’t realise that there are particular skin nutrients required to produce good quality collagen and elastin and that even people who eat a basically healthy diet are often deficient in them. There are also particular foods that people who struggle with acne and rosacea should avoid.
It is remarkable how quickly skin changes once people are educated about these factors and take a more holistic approach to caring for their skin.
The type of exercise you do can also have a surprising impact on your skin.
If you struggle with acne, high-impact exercise, especially in competitive environments which raise testosterone, can make acne a lot worse.
Gentle exercise like walking, pilates or yoga is better when you are treating acne from a holistic perspective.
People who are prepared to make changes to their eating and exercise regime often experience quite remarkable changes in their skin.
