In addition to a topical skin care routine, noticeably beautiful skin is best achieved by implementing a strategic lifestyle, diet and supplementation plan that optimizes skin health. It is important that clients understand the skin’s visible surface is just a single element of a broader complex of physiological systems that function synergistically to maintain the well-being of skin. Because the skin is the largest organ in the body—one that is alive, sensitive and reactive—it is the most exposed organ to external influences, such as UV rays, pollution and harsh weather. Skin is equally responsive to internal processes that can be altered drastically by stress, sleep and other lifestyle factors.

A whole-body approach to skin care should be palpable throughout the entire duration of your interaction with clients—from intake, to treatment, to post-treatment home care. A focus on diet, supplementation and lifestyle should also be integrated into all aspects of your business practice, including your retail space and marketing campaigns.

Intrinsic and extrinsic

The aging process occurs in two ways: intrinsically and extrinsically.
