#ACNE AND YOUR GUT!🤰🏼There is a major connection between gut health and skin health. 🔎Research has shown that people who suffer from digestive related issues such as bloating, gas &constipation are much more likely to suffer from acne than those who do not. Why? 🖇Imbalances in gut flora, particularly in individuals who have more bad bacteria than good bacteria, increase their risk of altered immune function, compromised gut health and skin issues.👇🏼
1️⃣ Good bacteria help to strengthen the lining of our guts, which helps to prevent increased intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". When we have a leaky gut, undigested food, toxins and proteins can make their way into our bloodstream. This should NOT normally happen, and when it does, causes an inflammatory cascade and our body and immune system signals an attack on these foreign invaders. Symptoms of leaky gut often show up on our SKIN & FACE*.
2️⃣Good bacteria help to recycle, break down, & eliminate excess *hormones to be removed in our feces. Hormonal acne appears around the chin and jawline.
3️⃣ Good bacteria help to reduce markers of inflammation in the body. Acne is an inflammatory condition**
4️⃣They help to metabolize our food and regulate healthy bowel movements, preventing diarrhea and/or constipation. Properly formed bowel movements are crucial because this is a method for eliminating hormones. After the liver has broken down and packed hormones for removal, they are sent to the bowels to be removed in our feces. If we are not eliminating feces properly from the bowels and our stools are poorly formed, hormones stick around too long in the intestines/colon and can be reabsorbed back into the bloodstream. NOT GOOD.
In my Healthy Skin From Within Ebook protocol, I provide you with a complete digestive healing guide, meal plan, supplement recommendations, DIY beauty care &TONS more to reduce inflammation, re-establish microbial diversity, improve liver function and hormonal balance, and heal the damage that has occurred in the gut. .

Ok ladies and gents did you know that most people don’t have dry skin?Instead, what many people experience is dehydration (yes, your face can get thirsty). This can cause trouble for your complexion in the form of pimples, headaches, and a long list of other annoying issues. Dry skin is actually something that’s genetically passed down. It is more of a hereditary condition, Which literally means your body doesn’t produce as much sebum—so it’s something you’re born with, rather than something that develops over time.
Dehydrated skin is based on your stress levels, environment, intake of water or even using skincare the wrong way. Let’s do a skin journal to notice when your skin feels uncomfortable and write in detail these markers—what you’re eating, how your stress levels are and where you are in your cycle (note how it changes throughout a 28-day cycle). If eventually your skin returns to that normal glow, you were just dehydrated. Let’s start there... one pore at a time.
LightStim treatments can be incorporated into any facial! Blue light destroys P. acnes and restores cellular function. Red light helps build collagen, elastin and other proteins, accelerates healing, reduces inflammation and so much more! Schedule today with your facial or take one home to use every day! #lightstim#skinhealth#totalbodywellness#alchemyfacebar

*RADISH LEAVES* You guys I have been missing out!! Ok, so normally the radishes sit in the fridge and the first thing to go are the leaves, they get slimy and I have to cut them off to save the radishes themselves. But I discovered they are delicious — they make an amazing pesto — and according to @medicalmedium they are one of the most healing greens possible, they detox heavy metals to an extreme degree and are anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and are the second most powerful pre-biotic!! Seriously can’t believe I’ve been throwing them away 🙈.
Here’s how I made the pesto 🌱:
In a food processor combine radish leaves, soaked walnuts, garlic, lemon, avo oil and nutritional yeast. 🤤
Do you eat radish leaves? Share more ideas on what to do with them 🙏❤️

13 Dec: Evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract (Wu-Zhu-Yu)
This powerful natural active stimulates the extracellular release of nitric oxide in the blood vessels which dilates them and improves microcirculation, thus illuminates and brightens dull and lifeless skin making it look brighter and more healthy. Also has strong anti-inflammatory properties (namely due to high content of indole quinazoline alkaloids). Studies show the extract is significantly more effective at inhibiting erythema* than bisabolol, the active component of chamomile.
The fruit is grown in a very specific area of China. The ethical policy of the manufacturer confirms that no slave labour or child labour is used and there is no gender discrimination, which is great news for women's rights in China. *Erythema - redness of the skin due to skin injury, infection or inflammation.

Trans fats are the result of the hydrogenation process of liquid oil, which is made with the purpose of converting it into solid fat, increasing its shelf life and improving the taste and texture of the foods prepared with it. It is known that trans fats can be harmful to health because they contribute to increasing the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. 😥
Spirulina is trans fats free, so it's safe to consume it daily before each meal. 😉

Hey everyone just a little note to save some scheduling trouble.
Facial injections should be booked after facial appointments. And I would advise giving yourself a bit of time between such scheduling. There are certain services in the facial room that should be done in a certain order so it’s best to be on the safe side (Example electric modalities). Also always let your esthetician know if you’ve had any such services as that will impact what can be done in the facial room. If you do decide to get these services done with a doctor or RN they will give you the full rundown 😉
If you own a Nuface device or any microcurrent device it’s safer not to use it over injection sites.
It only took me 27 years to try roasted hasselback potatoes, but I think I’m in love! The slices are beautiful, but also allow the flavors of a toast to more deeply penetrate the potatoes and help them cook faster - genius! I roasted mine with whole garlic cloves, shallots, olive oil, sea salt, and dried thyme. You slice the hasselback cuts by putting either dinner knives or chopsticks on both sides of the potato to prevent cutting through. So good!
#Sponsored: I know busy moms out there can relate when it comes to getting ready for our day. Six months ago I left my corporate position and decided to go all-in full-time with blogging, because it's my real passion and what I love to do. Reality hit me hard and fast when I transitioned to working from home. I was no longer required to dress up in business professional attire daily, I now do before and after school pick-up with the hubby along with running errands every day, and I found myself often hiding in my beautiful woman cave I like to call my home office to create content. Check out my busy mom regimen I do daily to ensure I always look my best even when I'm pressed for time (which seems to be everyday lately haha). I use serum, eye cream and sunscreen - and on occasions when my eyes are red, I use LUMIFY® redness reliever eye drops from the eye care experts at Bausch + Lomb. I am collaborating with Bausch + Lomb this year and @LumifyDrops feel cool and comfortable. Just one drop in each eye, they start working in a minute and last up to 8 hours (use as directed). Developed by eye doctors, LUMIFY eye drops are FDA-Approved. LUMIFY makes my eyes look more vibrant and helps make them appear brighter and whiter. You can find LUMIFY eye drops in the eye care aisle at CVS or online at www.lumifydrops.com #LumifyDrops
