Nutrition and Optimal Skin Health

by Chiza Westcarr

The learning outcome will be a good understanding of internal health, beginning with an introduction to the gut and its influence on our digestion, immunity and skin health.

Course Agenda:

Part 1

Introduction to the Gut and the Gut-Brain-Skin Connection – 9:00 am – 10:20 am
This module introduces the gut and its structures, as well as the meaning and importance of the gut microbiota and microbiome, as they both impact skin health. We will identify where and when a human being first acquires its first inoculation of gut bacteria. We will also take a look at the importance of gut integrity.

There are many factors that cause damage to the gut wall and we will take a look at the concept of gut dysbiosis or ‘leaky gut’ and discuss its implications, as it relates to inflammatory skin conditions. We will explore the terms ‘gut-brain’ axis and ‘gut-skin’ axis and the link to mood, energy levels, metabolism and immunity.

Part 2

Nutraceuticals 10:30 am – 12:00 noon
 This Module looks at the importance of nutrient support to optimise skin health.

Many of the skin conditions that come to our attention as Skin Therapists are often linked to undetected nutrient deficiencies and ultimately to problem skin concerns. Oftentimes Skin Therapists find that despite having ‘all the tools’ to address a skin concern, both in terms of in-clinic treatment modalities and effective actives for the client to use at home, the desired outcome is not always achieved.

In this Module we are going to identify key whole food nutrients and the role they play in helping to manage a number of common skin conditions that you can recommend to your client without the need for a prescription or the need to be a Nutritionist or Naturopath.

I always say that Skin Therapists are in charge of the largest organ in the body and should therefore feel comfortable recommending what is needed to ensure it performs at an optimal level. Supplementation forms part of those recommendations.

Part 3

The Consultation Process incorporating nutrition-related questions 1:00 pm to 2:20 pm

This Module looks at the importance of the consultation process and why it is crucial that you adopt a holistic approach, setting yourself up as an expert from the very beginning.

Skin therapists often spend too little time during the consultation and so fail to gain vital insight into their client’s needs which often means that they are unsuccessful at recommending, and having their clients purchase products or courses of treatments.

In this Module we shall go through an actual consultation form that incorporates nutrition-based questions, the types of questions that need to be asked in order to gain a deeper insight into the client’s needs and turn her into a raving, loyal fan
