Standout Quotes for caring for your skin microbiome:

  • "Your skin is your largest organ. It provides the barrier between you and the outside world, and it's the first thing that people see when they look at you. It protects you; it keeps out most invaders, and it projects your current state of health."
  • "If your skin looks good, you'll feel good about yourself. If your skin has problems, then you'll feel shame and embarrassment such that you'll isolate yourself, and those with severe issues can be outcasts or stigmatized."
  • "Individuals with visible challenges face a steep mountain to climb to embrace themselves for who they are, which in turn helps other people accept them for who they are. And there are numerous other issues such as acne, eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis, and your skin will communicate what is going on within your body."
  • "What happens when you're stressed is all the tiny muscles in our face will pull tight and create wrinkles.  You might develop deep lines around your mouth or between your eyes, for example. "  
  • "Your skin has its own microbiome. This microbiome helps your skin in ways you probably don't realize, and for the most part, it stays stable for most of your life unless you disrupt it."
  • "The damage to your skin microbiomes on your hands can also disrupt the gut, and vice versa.  A healthy skin microbiome promotes a healthy gut microbiome. So they play hand in hand, but they are separate." 
  • "If you have any gum irritation in your mouth, which might develop if you have pockets. you have to floss well every day. If you use a toothpaste with SLS or sodium lauryl sulfate, it'll contribute to the irritation."

Key Takeaways for helping your skin look and perform its best:

  • Just taking care of your skin is a common approach. When you include other lifestyle adjustments together with energy healing, improvements in your health and well-being will accelerate. They have a multiplicative effect.
  • Your skin is composed of three layers. 1. The epidermis is the top layer; it is the sealed outer covering, preventing your fluids seeping out and pathogens leaking in.  2.  The dermis, a layer of stiff connective tissue beneath pulled together with collagen, contains your hair follicles, your sweat and oil glands, and nerve endings.  3. The third layer is composed of fat and connective tissue, where the subcutaneous fat is located.
  • Exercise helps promote circulation, which subsequently aids the skin in excreting pollutants.
  • Apart from consuming plenty of water, which firms and hydrates the skin, some supplements benefit the skin. Antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamins A, B, E, zinc, and fatty acids are beneficial supplements. Evening primrose, primrose oil, basil, and turmeric are beneficial for aging skin, eating more collagen with higher acid content.
  • Whole organic foods rather than processed foods are wholesome for maintaining good skin health, especially vitamins from dark leafy greens such as kale, spinach, and collards
  • Deep breathing and meditation are beneficial release nervous energy. When you enter a parasympathetic state, when your adrenal glands are dormant, your tiny muscles in your skin relax. You appear ten years younger 
  • Toxins will collect in your body if you overwhelm your body's detoxification processes, including the skin. Minimize your exposure by eating organic, using healthy personal care products and clean your environment of toxins.  
  • Antibacterial products are detrimental to all microorganisms, not just the pathogenic ones.  Minimize their use.  If you work in an environment with bathrooms, bring your bar of conventional soap and wash your hands for about 20 seconds instead of purchasing antibacterial soap. It will remove the majority of infections from your hands, about 99.9 percent. The balance of bacteria and other microscopic life is disrupted with all those antibacterial products, increasing your susceptibility to germs and maybe contributing to the flare-ups of rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne.
  • To encourage a healthy skin microbiome, begin by balancing your gut microbiota. If you have candida overgrowth, follow a sugar-free diet, including all fruit, starchy vegetables, grains, and dairy products.
  • There are numerous methods for de-stressing that do not require changing your life circumstances, including deep breathing, meditation, stretching, and yoga. Many of the skin disorders associated with disordered microbiota can be resolved by stress reduction.
  • Quite a few skin products are quite acidic. Purchase pH-balanced soaps, as conventional soap, was created from lye and was extremely basic. While your skin and hair prefer a somewhat acidic pH, pH balancing helps maintain a neutral pH.
  • Tip: Many skincare products, particularly organic ones, have preservatives to prevent them from going bad after a while. When you use something like a skin cream for an extended period, you dip your fingers in it, and if it doesn't contain preservatives, it begins to rot.
