HOLISTIC SKINCARE SECRETS CLASS
Did you ever wonder why women are told to brace themselves as they age, and to "get ready for your looks to go downhill and your skin to head south?" Meanwhile cosmetic companies make billions of dollars off of the fears women have of aging skin, with new “miracle” products launched every year, products which mostly wind up half empty and shoved to the back of the cabinet.
Beneath all the marketing hype there has been an authentic leap forward in our understanding of what causes skin to age, and it centers on inflammation. This is good news! It means your skin really can look better than ever — no matter how old you are — once you recognize that what happens on the inside truly does show up on the outside, and what you use on the outside either helps, or dramatically harms, the aging process of your skin.
That’s because the aging you see in your skin is biological, not chronological, and can be delayed or even reversed with a holistic, natural approach that includes optimal diet, lifestyle and product choices. HMI's Holistic Skincare Secrets class offers you real advice, clear guidance, and a natural holistic path to reversing the signs of aging, as well clearing up a multitude of other skin issues.
In this HMI Holistic Skincare Secrets Class You Will Learn How To Have Your Best Skin With A Three-Pronged Approach:
1. Learn EXACTLY what the targeted nutrients are for glowing clear skin, including critical antioxidants for cellular regeneration, hydration and collagen repair.
2. Find out what daily and weekly habits will give you glowing skin for life.
3. Learn amazingly easy, but powerful recipes for creating your own organic, healing scrubs, toners, cleansers, lotions and moisturizers with ingredients that sooth, heal, protect, and nourish the skin without any cancer causing chemicals.
This program skin works for all skin, including skin with conditions like adult acne, rosacea, and dermatitis. Where conventional medicine turns first to antibiotics, acids, retinol and steroid creams to treat the symptoms of these conditions, the Health Mastery Institute Skincare Program's natural approach helps women resolve their skin aging and other issues by addressing the core causes and using natural holistic ingredients, perfectly paired with high quality supplements, to heal your skin from both the inside and the outside.
Every day I see the results of this inside-out approach in the skin of clients — skin that grows younger and more vibrant each day. I have worked with women of all ages, with all different types of skin from around the world with varied lifestyles who have given their testimonial that the Holistic Anti-Aging skincare protocols and home-made products WORK, and they are told by other women all the time, "You're skin looks AMAZING!"
And yours can too – but the solution relies on a carefully targeted approach.
Reverse Aging Skin
One of the first things we notice about babies is how smooth and soft their skin is. From the moment we are born, our skin serves as our most reliable barrier between our inner and outer worlds. It is the layer everyone can see and touch. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then our skin is the causeway to the brain. In fact, our skin has its own kind of independent intelligence: it blushes when we’re embarrassed, “crawls” when we’re afraid, and itches or tingles for no apparent physical reason.
A woman’s complexion is intimately connected with her feelings of self-confidence and power: it’s the “face” she shows to the world. No wonder women spend so much time and money on beauty products and make-up. We’ve been taught to medicate or cover-up our so-called flaws instead of figuring out why they are there in the first place.
No matter what line a beauty company tries to sell you, the basic fact is that a beautiful face is not just skin deep. Think of a plant – the first indication that it needs water is its droopy leaves. It may revive a bit if you spray some water on its surface, but in order to restore the plant to vibrancy you have to water its roots.
Paying loving attention to the health of your skin is one of the best and easiest ways to listen to your body. Whatever is going on inside will eventually show up on the outside. So if you have skin concerns, chances are you need to look beyond the surface to discover what is really going on — the anatomy of the skin is linked to all our major functions, including the immune, respiratory, circulatory, lymph and neurotransmitter systems.
Acute and Chronic Skin Care Issues
Skin concerns arise on two fundamental levels: acute and chronic. In this HMI Skin Care Secrets Class, we will look at issues facing many women including premature aging, dry skin, acne, dermatitis and rosacea — and other conditions that have recently been linked to chronic inflammation, as well as acute skin conditions and allergic responses, such as eczema, hives, rashes and/or unusual thickening, mottling/bruising or mole growth.
To make significant improvements in the tone and texture of your skin, you need to soothe inflammation on two fronts:
By neutralizing free radicals (both inside and out); and
By boosting immune function through good nutrition, supplements, hormonal balance, detoxification, and topical support.
By the time a woman sees visible signs of aging (usually in her mid 30’s or early 40’s), it’s highly likely she’s been operating with low-grade inflammation for years. Undiagnosed food sensitivities, poor diet, stress, hormonal imbalance, toxic overload and a sedentary lifestyle challenge the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight inflammation on the inside. On the outside, cheap or toxic skin care products, lack of nourishment from the outside, and bacteria and environmental toxins trigger an immune response that ultimately weakens collagen, dilates surface blood capillaries and clogs pores. How this manifests in your skin is individual to you, but for most of us it appears as uneven skin tone, sporadic or chronic outbreaks and, of course, the dreaded premature aging.
We are not talking about trying to look 20 when you're 50. We are certainly not talking about being afraid of the aging process, or dishonoring the incredible beauty in women of ALL ages, but we ARE talking about the unnecessary burden of drastic changes to the skin that are NOT NECESSARY and start happening in your 30's.
LEARN ABOUT AGE's
This class will give you everything you need to know about the metabolic process called glycation (or glycosylation) in which sugar molecules in the blood bond to proteins and DNA, which over time become chemically modified. These new bonded proteins are called AGE’s, or advanced glycation end-products.
AGE’s create unnatural crosslinks with collagen proteins and change their shape, flexibility, elasticity and function.
The result is premature aging.
Inflammation and glycation are two related reactions that impact the body’s natural state of balance and manifest themselves as aging throughout the body’s organ systems, but most apparently in the skin.
YOUR EMOTIONS AND SKIN HEALTH
Skin is a fantastic communicator — often revealing our unspoken emotions to the world. Why does stress cause some women to break out in hives and others in pimples? The answer lies in the body’s individual response to inflammatory stressors. If you are a highly emotional person, or conversely, if you bury your emotions, your skin tends to expose your true nature — perhaps more than you realize.
Two Japanese researchers, Makoto Hashiro and Mutsuko Okumura, have published studies in the Journal of Dermatalogical Science showing that eczema (also called atopic dermatitis) occurs more frequently in people prone to anxiety and depression than the general population.
In this HMI Holistic Skincare Secrets Class you will learn more about this powerful connection, and what you can do about it.
THE BIOLOGY OF AGING SKIN
Walk over to a mirror and look at your face, neck and hands. For most people, these are the parts of their skin that wrinkle, thin or sag first. Now roll up your sleeve and look at the underside of your elbow or forearm. Any difference you see between the two is the result of aging.
Now you may think that there’s not much you can do about aging skin — you can’t help getting older every year. But there is. The aging I am talking about is not chronological. It’s cellular, or biological, aging. It means that the DNA inside a healthy cell has become fragmented or shortened, which affects the mitochondria inside the cell.
Mitochondria are the fuel factories in our cells that convert the food we eat into energy. When mitochondria malfunction, the cell dies. How well we age, including our vulnerability to disease is due in part to how healthy our mitochondria are. Recent studies have linked oxidative stress — the accumulation of free radicals in the cell — and genetic defects in mitochondria with premature aging.
In this HMI Holistic Skincare class you will learn EXACTLY what causes mitochondria to self-destruct, and how to stop it and how to prevent further damage.
LEARN THE MAJOR ANTIOXIDANTS YOU NEED FOR YOUTHFUL SKIN
To counteract free radicals, our immune system relies on certain nutrients that defend the cells. These protective substances are called antioxidants, most of which are plant derived. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and eliminate inflammation by sacrificing one of their electrons without adverse effect.
Since free radicals are inescapable, we must have a constant supply of antioxidant nutrients to keep our skin cells healthy. In addition, antioxidants encourage our cells’ “fix-it” enzymes to repair damage.
Our cells have a wonderful ability to heal themselves, but this mechanism works less efficiently as we get older — due to damaged mitochondrial function.
DEVELOPING THE PERFECT SKIN CARE REGIME FOR YOU
Taking care of your skin means taking care from the inside out and ALSO the outside in. How often do you exfoliate, hydrate, cleanse, and moisturize your skin? And what about delicate areas like around the eyes? Forehead lines and marionette lines around the mouth? How you take care of your skin on the outside is equally as powerful and important as taking care of proper nutrients on the inside.
