When most people hear Holistic Skincare they pretty much think “putting stuff on my face that’s good for me”. Well, yes and no. A better understanding would be “taking care of your skin by caring for our health, inside and out.”
We can all agree that “inside” refers to food, supplements and medicine; and “outside” is basically the skincare and make up we apply on bodies. But let’s take this one step further: You can better achieve or maintain your health and beauty if you expand what you perceive to be holistic by extending what we put “inside” to include our thoughts and our feelings; and the idea of “outside” to include our environment and the people and things within it.
You’d be surprised how we think, behave and interact influences our health and attitude, and therefore our appearance.
The environment, including our community and the people and things in it, are having an impact on our personal appearance without our realizing it. By creating positive changes in our environment, we can create positive changes in our health of our bodies and our skin.
