Skin Health is one of my passions. I absolutely believe that everyone should have gorgeous glowing skin, and if it isn't that means something is imbalanced on the inside.
Many people of all ages struggle with skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, dry skin, wrinkles, and sun damage, among others. This can be very upsetting for those who have yet to find a solution to their problematic skin. While conventional medical professionals often discount the connection between skin health and nutrition, there is strong evidence to support the influence of our food choices on the health and vibrancy of our skin. I believe that skin health is 80% food and 20% cosmetics.
Our skin is the body’s largest organ, and like a mirror, it reflects the health of your body. Poor skin and hair health can be a sign of an internal dysfunction. From hormonal imbalance, digestive disease and immune deficiency, to external factors like stress and lifestyle. As a Registered Nutritional Therapist and Botanical Skin Care Consultant, I use a multi-faceted approach of Nutrition, Lifestyle and Product advice to support people on the path to glowing, healthy skin.
BEAUTY IS NOT SKIN DEEPThe synthesis of healthy new skin cells requires certain nutrients and the integrity of your skin can therefore be heavily reliant on diet. In addition to this, the skin relies on the functioning of many systems, and can often be an outward manifestation of how well your body is functioning internally.
Imbalances with hormones, immunity, digestion and inflammation can contribute to skin problem such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea or sensitive skin. For such cases, the objective is always to work to the heart of the problem so that the protocol can be targeted to the individual’s specific requirements.
Emma is a skin specialist and has worked with many clients wanting to manage specific dermatological conditions, or simply promote youthful glowing skin that is more resistant to the signs of ageing.
How can nutrition help?
Tailor nutrient intake to maximise collagen production and promote healing
Balance hormonal activity to help prevent hormone-induced skin conditions
Prevent DNA damage that can lead to wrinkles and sings of ageing
Reduce inflammatory reactions that can contribute to eczema, psoriasis and hives.
Regulate digestive dysfunction, which is commonly implicated with problematic skin
Identify allergies and intolerances that could be leading to skin conditions such as eczema, acne, hives, dermatitis and psoriasis
What clients have to say: Since having my children I have suffered with severe Rosacea. I had been given every cream possible by the doctors , and none of them worked long term. Emma has educated me in my diet and offered a more natural approach to treating my condition and after the 30 day Clean and Lean plan and changing the beauty products I use I’ve been given the results and a lifestyle that at last I can start living again..it is so much more than a diet it is the answer I have been looking for. H.H“1 day in and my skin is already looking and feeling better and clearer … Is that possible???” J.T.
Having suffered from acne for what feels like my entire life, Emma has completely helped transform my skin . It now glows. I still get the occasional spot – but I would say that 85% of the time my skin is now completely clear. If you suffer with Acne you’ve got to book a session with her. H.C
