Deep Dive Into What the Holistic Approach to Treating the Skin Looks Like

People often think of holistic when it involves the skin, is that it's solely about using natural products.  While natural ingredients are often emphasize, holistic skincare involve the embodiment of lifestyle factors, stress management, and overall well-being for optimal skin health.

Holistically treating the skin focuses on the wellbeing of the skin as a whole body health.  What that means is I don't look at the skin as a singular entity but rather a a connection between the mind, body, and soul

With that I want to show you the benefits of a holistic approach to treating the skin and how I serve my clients while highlighting the intricate connection between skin health and internal well-being.


Holistic skincare is an approach that recognizes the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit. It goes beyond treatments that solely consider surface-level symptoms.  Instead, I consider the whole person and their overall health. 

Some core principles that guide me within my facial studio:

Mind-Body harmony: I acknowledge that physical beauty is influenced by emotional and mental well-being. Stress, anxiety, and other emotional factors can directly impact the skin's health.

Nutrition and lifestyle: Diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices play a pivotal role in skin health. I place emphasizes on a balanced, wholesome lifestyle for glowing skin.

Non-toxic products: Non-toxic, plant-based products are the core to topical treatments for me.  I avoid harmful chemicals that can negatively affect the skin and overall health.

    Before becoming a licensed esthetician, I started my journey into the skincare world as a skincare formulator.  Simply put, I build recipes to produce skincare products such as cleansers.  It was important for me to curate products that were plant-based, effective, and nurtured the skin.

    It's no surprise that I would gravitate to servicing my clients holistically as it directly aligns with the products I create.  Here's some of the benefits you would love:

    Long-lasting results: Aimed to address the root causes of skin issues, leading to long-lasting improvements rather than short-term fixes.

    Improved overall health: Clients can experience not only better skin health but also enhanced overall well-being, including reduced stress and increased self-confidence.

    Individualized care: I tailor treatments to each client's unique needs, considering their physical, emotional, and lifestyle factors.


      This is one of my favorite parts, serving my clients.  Let's look as some of the ways I incorporate holistic esthetics into my practice:

      Getting to know you: Every new client is introduced to me and the facial studio with a thorough assessment of their skin, health, and lifestyle to help me understand their concerns and goals.

      Customized treatment plans: I develop personalized treatment plans that include skincare routines, dietary recommendations, and stress management techniques.

      I am all about educating: I am most fulfilled when I'm able to empower my clients with knowledge about the connection between their skin and internal well-being, so they can make informed choices for their health.

      Plant-based products: As mentioned before, I only use plant-based, skincare products in my treatments to avoid potential harm from harsh chemicals.


        The skin is more than just a superficial layer; it is a reflection of what's happening internally. Conditions like acne, eczema, and premature aging can be indicative of underlying issues. I take into account the body's interconnected systems and seeks to balance them for healthier, more radiant skin.

        In conclusion, a holistic approach to caring for skin that considers the body, mind, and spirit . Remember, the skin is a mirror of internal health, and by nurturing that connection, I am able to help my clients achieve true and lasting optimal skin health.

        Now that you've delved into the world of holistic skincare, what aspect resonates with you the most? Share your thoughts.
