SKIN | How to treat your skin after being sick

It’s cold and flu season and a lot of us have been, unfortunately bedridden, sneezing, and coughing for days. It’s not fun, or glamorous and can wreak havoc on the skin. When our immune system is down inflammation of the skin occurs and a lot can come out topically as we heal ourselves back to health. Not to mention the red dry nose that occurs from blowing into one too many tissues. Here are a few tips and tools to help nourish and support your skin back to a healthy glow!

SKIN | Well Balanced

When writing the signature workshop almost 2 years ago we decided that there were four major categories of health that most people seem to identify with. The first 3 categories we have covered in the journal over the last several weeks. These include environmentally affected, hormonally affected, and gut imbalanced. Today we are going to navigate the theme of being well balanced. After reading all of the SFT categories some of you may be thinking “I don’t really fit with an imbalance?” and that’s we the 4th category is a focus on preventative care. To be well balanced can mean a lot of things such as you may not notice any symptoms but don’t go out of your way to be extra healthy. Or you could be the type who is very well aware of your body and it's needed so you do your best to navigate all areas of health. Either way, this category is a great outline for anyone looking to continue their wellness journey because it encompasses the full mind, body, spirit approach to balance. With our preventative care and intuitive practices, this category can help you transition through the ebb and flow of life with grace and a glow!

SKIN | Digestive health

What a better time for us to begin the discussion on our third category of health, gut imbalance, then right before the holiday festivities really start. All aspects of health we know start in the gut so this can definitely show up in the skin and determine even the most minuscule dietary imbalance. You may be wondering why we don’t start our SFT workshops by diving into the digestive system first? We believe that it’s important to understand other systems because the digestive system is regulated by the nervous system, endocrine system, and also itself which makes it not only complex but a great place to root every condition back too.

SKIN | Product Combinations

Have you ever gone to a beauty counter or spa and suddenly left with 5 new products with no clue why you picked them up? We call this the beauty store blackout. This is a common occurrence because most of us not only love beauty products, but we also are convinced into a sale based on claims of what said product would do for us. The desire for a clear and glowing complexion can come at a cost when you don’t understand how to structure a regimen for yourself. There is so much to consider when you are buying products for your skin including how your products will work together in synergy. The combination of ingredients can become a science experiment gone bad on our face if we’re not careful. So how do you navigate all of this if you’re not an expert? Here are the 4 SFT steps to keeping your regimen simple and effective.

SKIN | Hormonal Imbalance

When coming up with the Signature workshop almost 2 years ago, one of the first topics that we wanted to address was hormonal health. You wouldn’t think that an esthetician and nutritionist would be so passionate about this topic but from our own experiences to the increase in conditions affected our clientele, this is a topic we can’t avoid. Most of us have experienced the type of education when it comes to our hormones where it’s split off into two conversations. The first being - “Here is how your body will change and deal with it” and the second being “Sex Education with a focus on abstinence”. Where in all of that do you learn about listening to your body and how to support yourself? The major issue is that hormone health often misses the point and leads men and women to their own devices when trying to connect the dots in their health imbalances.
