Healthy skin starts in the gut. Many of us can agree that beauty is an inside job, but what does this really mean and how do we optimize our skin health via the gut?
Gut health is fundamental for nourishing the body and optimizing skin health. It produces beautiful skin by balancing hormones, preventing inflammation, absorbing essential fatty acids and and creating bioavailable nutrition ( aka SKIN FOOD) to the skin and body.
SO...what happens when the gut is not functioning at an optimal level, when the microbiome is out of balance, and digestion is challenged? It shows up on our skin and creates a cascade of symptoms in the body. You know this all too well if you have experienced fatigue, digestion challenges, brain fog, or perhaps it is now getting your attention as it is showing up on your face in the shape of wrinkles, blemishes, under eye bags, poor skin tone and hydration.
Join Dr. Michelle Van Der Westhuizen and Stacey Irvine, RN & Skin Therapist to learn more about the intricate and undeniable connection between your gut health and skin health. Together they will share current research and science to nourish and support a healthy gut from within, while helping you to recognize early signs and symptoms of inflammation, food sensitivity and dysbiosis.
While appreciating that healthy skin starts from within, the best skin comes from treating the INSIDE + OUTSIDE. Stacey will provide further information and tangible ideas to support the skin barrier topically. Skin nutrition, topical treatments and beauty rituals will be shared to reclaim your glow and actively improve the way you look and feel about aging.
BONUS: The founders of The Gut Lab, Dani + Lexi will also be joining us to nourish you with gut healing and skin boosting elixirs crafted locally with medicinal mushrooms and superfoods.
