What is Integrative Skin Care?
The focus of most traditional skin care centers tend to be on the care and treatment of our outermost layers of the skin; what we see when we look in the mirror. What sets our skin care apart is the emphasis on integrating other aspects of our health and physiology that can affect the clarity, integrity and tone of our skin. Over the past several years we have gained tremendous insight into how our internal chemistry plays a role in healthy skin formation. Skin stressor such as nutritional deficiencies, food allergies/sensitivities and internal and external oxidation levels are very influential and need to be assessed. Dietary and lifestyle modification are and should be an essential component of proper skin care. An integrative/holistic model of skin care encompasses all of these facets of skin health and healing.
