About Holistic Dermatology:

Holistic dermatology is increasingly gaining favor among individuals who value the benefits of healthy and attractive skin. This type of skincare focuses on total healing and preventing future sickness by bringing about change within the body.

Your skin is a mirror of your overall health. Holistic dermatology may be what your body requires to protect one of your most vital organs from further damage; your skin.

What is holistic dermatology?

Holistic dermatology focuses on treating the person as a whole, rather than merely providing skin treatment. Additionally, holistic dermatology prioritizes treating the underlying causes of a person’s skin problem using the least intrusive methods possible. 

In addition, holistic skincare concentrates on environmental, nutritional variables, and stress exposures as possible sources of changes in the body’s ability to deal with potential antigens that trigger skin disorders.

Suffering from skin disorders such as cystic acne can be an emotional, embarrassing and frustrating journey. It affects the way we connect with others and can make us feel self-conscious, under-confident. Perhaps we end up not going for things in life we would do otherwise if we felt truly comfortable and glowing in our skin. Seeking out an immediate quick-fix can be tempting, but it will most likely not give you the best results you desire.

The skin is the largest organ of the body. It plays a primary role in the body’s natural ability to detox and eliminate, expelling toxins via the pores. When we experience skin issues, it is a clear sign that the body is in some way overloaded or other organs vital for detoxification are underperforming. Therefore, simply treating skin issues superficially and topically with creams or gels does not target the root causes. Instead, you will likely experience recurring issues or more symptoms as the body tries to balance and rectify itself. If you have chosen to try a holistic approach to treat your skin issues, you are already on the path to healing your skin and body.

Holistic Dermatology takes an all-around approach to discover and treat the underlying causes and contributing factors to your skin challenges. These factors could relate to diet, toxic overload, compromised liver function, gut dysbiosis, poor gut health, hormonal imbalance, intolerance or allergy, high levels of stress, or a chemical imbalance that creates inflammation and hormonal dysregulation.

What can you expect from a holistic skin care treatment?

Your treatment will begin with looking at events leading up to the start of your issues including triggers, preceding dietary or lifestyle habits plus understanding what has been tried and tested already. Our experts test for allergies, intolerances, any underlying conditions, deficiencies, toxicity from heavy metals or environmental toxins, or any hormonal or chemical imbalances presenting in your blood. These tests might be pivotal in identifying the root causes and also the direction of your treatment plan. Once taking a full inventory of your diet and lifestyle, you will likely undertake some dietary or lifestyle changes. This might take the form of an elimination diet if you have some suspected or proven allergies or intolerances; otherwise, your prescribed diet will seek to reduce inflammation, stabilize blood sugars, boost the immune system, detoxify vital organs and improve gut health. You will likely also seek to reduce your intake of toxins from other aspects of your life, including household products, toiletries, and cosmetics. These changes ensure that you reduce the toxic load entering the body so that it is less overwhelmed. Lifestyle habits to reduce your stress will also play an important role as these chemicals add to the things the body has to clear from the inside out.

Importance will also be placed on improving the other ways in which your body detoxes and eliminates: the liver, the digestive tract, and the lymphatic system. The changes you make in your diet and lifestyle will also activate, and balance these organs so that less pressure is placed on the skin to keep the body healthy.

During this process, you might also benefit from other healing modalities to encourage the body to relax and reset, including acupuncture and craniosacral therapy. 

The Focus of Holistic Skincare Routine 

The holistic approach to skincare emphasizes the following skincare routines: 

Nourishing the skin with proper substances

The products you use on your skin should nurture it both inside and out. Some examples include vitamins, SPF creams, and antioxidants. 

Skin-Friendly Diet

What we consume is as vital to our skin as what we put on it. Poor lifestyle choices, such as an improper diet, can aggravate skin problems. On the other hand, simple dietary modifications, such as eating anti-inflammatory foods, can help to rejuvenate your skin, immune system, gut, and other organs.

Hydration

Water is a vital remedy for all of the body’s ills, including bad skin. A lack of water in the body shows up as wrinkles on the skin. Drinking plenty of water can give your skin a healthy glow.

Exercise 

Exercise is essential for stress relief and the release of feel-good hormones such as endorphins. Our bodies can regulate the stress hormone cortisol, which may cause acne and inflammation. Sweating while exercising aids in the cleansing of the skin.

Sleep

During rest, our bodies detoxify and regenerate. These processes cannot occur without sleep, resulting in negative skin effects. As part of skin maintenance and therapy, holistic dermatologists recommend getting enough sleep.

Exfoliation 

Exfoliation is a necessary step in the skincare process. Massages on the skin might help to improve blood circulation and relieve muscle stress. Exfoliation masks can supply all of the essential nutrients that the skin requires to smooth and nourish it.

Stress-relieving lifestyle changes

The effects of stress on the body can be devastating. Anxiety and tension can cause stress-related acne breakouts, as well as stomach problems and headaches. An element of holistic skincare includes taking steps to minimize stress and relax.

Sun protection 

Although the sun can harm our skin, it is an important source of Vitamin D. However, long-term skin exposure can hasten the aging process and cause melanoma or skin cancer. Therefore, holistic skincare finds a balance between safely exposing the skin to the sun and regulating dangerous UV rays.

Efficacy of Holistic Dermatology in Treating Skin Diseases 

It is interesting to note that scientific research supports the holistic approach to skincare as an effective way of mitigating the burden of skin diseases. 

A review of recent scientific literature supports the connection between variable lifestyle factors and the dermatological result of skin disorders. The evaluation shows that lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, sleep, stress, smoking and alcohol, and smoking play a fundamental role in controlling the onset and progress of skin diseases. 

A study conducted to measure the impacts of lifestyle changes in treating psoriasis indicates that obesity, smoking, alcohol, lack of sleep, and a sedentary lifestyle aggravate the severity of the skin disease. The basis of the study was the evaluation of some past trials on the subject. The study concludes that nutritional intervention and exercise may lessen the gravity of psoriasis in overweight people compared with orthodox skin treatments. 

Another review studies a holistic approach to anti-aging serves as an assistant to the anti-aging procedure. The analysis examines major clinical trials on the effect of diet, exercise, hormones, stress, sleep, pollution, dental hygiene, smoking, and oxidative stress on the aging process. The results of the review show that standard cosmetic processes along with healthy lifestyle recommendations allow cosmetic practitioners to target multiple facets of aging simultaneously. Also, capitalize on the aesthetic interventions cosmetic experts offer.
