The skin is made up of proteins, fats and water. In order to be able to convert these into skin tissue, the body needs vitamins and minerals. It is really a question of you are what you eat. Furthermore, what you eat may also slow down the repair process or accelerate the breakdown of the skin. Yes, the skin needs to be nourished from the inside, not only from the outside.

Using simple and easy-to-apply herbal and nutritional solutions can significantly improve the results your customers are getting. In this, the first of a series of talks on the role of nutrition and skin health, Dr. Daniel Crisafi, an internationally renowned author, lecturer and researcher, will discuss the impact of nutritional modulation on esthetic results as well as on the bottom line.

Detoxification “The skin is the body’s secondary organ of elimination” - ~Date~

We are in contact with thousands of chemicals that did not exist a hundred years or so ago. Because these were not part of our environment in the past, we have not developed the specific mechanisms to get rid of them effectively. Research, including research undertaken by the World Health Organization, has discovered the increasingly important role these chemicals have on the development of a variety of diseases. And yes, the skin is one organ that is affected by these chemicals.

Because of this increased chemical load and the fact that the primary organs of illumination, the liver and the kidneys, are often inadequate in limiting these chemicals, the skin becomes the body’s secondary organ of illumination. This is easily observed in the case of hormones and their illumination through the skin. But it is also true of a variety of other chemicals. This is where detoxification, intelligent, not drastic, can significantly help to improve the situation. Indeed, if the detoxification helps the liver and the kidneys do their job more effectively, the body will not have to resort to illumination through the skin there by sparing us this extra burden.

Detoxification programs and detoxification diets need not be difficult or costly. Dr. Crisafi will briefly discuss the impact of foreign chemicals on the body as well as the different, simple methods of detoxification that can be used in your spa environment.

Estheticians and dermatologists are well aware of the impact of the acid alkaline balance on the skin. What is often not realized is that the body’s internal pH has as much, indeed probably a greater impact on skin health, as the external factors.

Your customer’s bodily pH, their internal pH, has a major potential impact on a variety of disorders such as osteoporosis, eczema, psoriasis and arthritis. Helping to determine if he or she is too acidic and helping them if they are to reduce that acidity can have dramatic impact not only on the health of their skin but on their health in general. Helping customers change their pH can have important positive effects on their overall well-being and give them that extra edge when it comes to clinical results.

The word protein comes from two Greek words basically meaning “that which comes first.” And indeed, this is the ideal definition for this nutrient that is only present in living beings and that is of primary importance. Your skin is made up in large part from proteins, particularly collagen and elastin. Since proteins are lost through the normal and natural turnover of the skin as well as through accrued damage by environmental pollutants and even hormonal changes, it is necessary to replenish those proteins. Though collagen can be used effectively topically, the primary source of protein for the skin should be dietary.

In this session, we will discuss protein nutrition, how much we need and what type we should consume.

5

There was a time where we were told to avoid fats. We now know that there are good fats that should not be avoided, just as there are bad fats that should be avoided. What we often forget is that these fats are not only involved in the brain tissue but also on the skin. One of the most important roles of the skin is to act as a barrier against external aggression. And one of the most important parts of that barrier function involves lipids or fats.

In this session, we will discuss the role of the good fats and the bad fats, their dietary modulation and/or use an impact in improving the health of the skin.

When it comes to vitamins, the general impression is that they’re involved in bone health, such as vitamin D, in health of the immune system such as vitamin C, in heart health such as vitamin E, or in healthy vision as vitamin A. Vitamins however, though required in small amounts, are vital to skin health. The appropriate use of vitamins can have significant effect on the skin not only when they are used topically but also, and often most importantly, when they are used internally.

In this session, we will discuss the role of these vitamins in skin health, what doses can be recommended and to whom.

In the 1960s and ’70s, to talk about chromium would probably bring to mind the idea of the beautiful shining bumpers on cars. However, and few people know this, chromium may be very important in the treatment and prevention of a specific skin problem. The magnesium may be touted as a laxative or for calming. Its role in skin health is often overlooked. Selenium is a well-known antioxidant which helps to protect the skin and zinc, though often associated with the creams used for diaper rashes, is also essential for the health of the skin and not just of babies’ backsides.

In this session, Dr. Crisafi will talk about the impact of these minerals on skin health, disclose some of their unknown roles and thereby give you tools to help your customers increase their skin health even more.

An important number of studies are showing that diet can either accelerate or slow down the aging of the skin. Many dietary factors, including antioxidants, can give the skin the added edge in looking younger by slowing down the aging process and in many cases reversing premature aging of the skin.

In this session, we will look at those dietary factors that have a direct impact on the skin, that can be easily modified without adopting a harsh diet, and that can bring your customers significant improvement in a short period of time.

All of us are aware of the impact of hormones on the skin, whether acne at puberty or the hormonal-induced acne associated with the menstrual cycle. These are not the only hormonally associated skin issues. In this session, we will take a look at the role of male hormones, androgens, on the skin as well as the role of hormonal changes and hypothyroidism and menopause on changes in skin structure and appearance.

We will discuss some of the nutrients and herbs that can be very useful in helping give your customers extra support in dealing with these hormonally induced skin challenges.

Acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea are among the skin problems that have the most and best-validated nutritional protocols. The role of nutrition and helping to reduce and even illuminate the skin problems is extremely well-documented. In this session, we will discuss the various nutritional and herbal strategies associated with these skin problems.

11

Associating skin problems with gut health may seem extreme. Research, however, has confirmed the link, for example, between eczema and the presence of good bacteria or probiotics in the intestinal tract. Some researchers have associated certain skin problems, particularly acne, with constipation. Is there a link? Yes, there is! In this session, we will discuss the link between certain skin disorders and bowel health and discuss ways of helping customers improve the state of the gastrointestinal tract.

The impression we often have is that weight gain and weight loss is essentially a question of mathematics. We generally assume that the weight, whether loss or gain, is a question of the number of calories we consume minus the number of calories we burn. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. All of us have had clients who burn more calories than they take in and yet who do not lose weight and who in some cases actually gain weight. Those who wish to achieve weight loss have to focus not only on this mathematical balance but have a balanced metabolism. Discovering metabolic balance and achieving it are in many cases relatively easy - though in not all cases. The objective of this session is to learn how to discover a very simple way, whether the metabolic imbalance exists and how to correct it.
