CELLULAR-LEVEL SKIN HEALTH
Skin is the largest organ of the body and is subject to the same biological laws that govern whole-body health. Skin can be damaged, diseased, prematurely aged by environmental factors such as dehydration, airborne pollutants, applied substances (cosmetics etc) and the daily diet.
You’ll gain a clear understanding of the different theories of ageing including a detailed look at special dietary compounds called AGEs and their proven impact on skin-ageing. You’ll discover which foods are highest and lowest in AGEs and which food preparation methods increase them.
THE BEAUTY FOOD TRIAD
Every skin cell is built, repaired and maintained by the materials supplied in the daily diet. It’s scientifically accurate to state that we can eat our way to youthful beautiful skin.
There are no neutral foods, every bite is either building health and beauty – or involved in its destruction.
In this module, you’ll learn the 3 essential elements that must be present in a food to ensure that it’s a ‘beauty food’. This 3-pronged formula will be your guide when it comes to assessing foods for their suitability in a beauty diet.
THE BEAUTY FOOD PYRAMID
The modern food pyramid isn’t designed to promote healthy, youthful or beautiful skin. We’re going to flip everything you know about nutrition on its head. The old paradigm of ‘4 food groups’ and the traditional pyramid of grain/meat/dairy is ditched in favour of a nutritional system that injects anti-ageing, skin-beautifying power into every single cell.
In this module, you’ll learn about the 5 main beauty food groups and a collection of subgroups that comprise an anti-ageing beauty diet.
THE ANTI-AGEING POWER OF WATER
With the skin being 64% water it is imperative that proper hydration is recommended to any client wanting healthier skin. There’s no point adding watery serums and creams to the face if the underlying cause of chronic dehydration isn’t addressed.
Modern society is rampant with sub-clinical dehydration thanks to a lack of fresh water-rich foods, alcohol and an addiction to sugary or caffeinated drinks instead of water.
In this module, you’ll learn about the best ways to hydrate the skin, from within.
THE KEY MACRO & MICRO-NUTRIENTS FOR SKIN-HEALTH
Split over two classes, this is a thorough investigation into the main nutrients: carbs, proteins, fats, vitamins & minerals that specifically serve the skin.
From A to Zinc all of the essential nutrients for humans are important but some key nutrients are especially beneficial for skin health, anti-ageing and beauty. In this module, you’ll learn about these nutrients and which beauty foods they exist in.
As part of this module, you’ll be shown how to evaluate your own food diary for nutritional status and you’ll be selecting which beauty foods you need to add to your diet.
DISCOVER THE ANTI-OXIDANTS
You’ve heard of ‘eat the rainbow’ but did you know that this phrase is backed by science?
The most potent anti-ageing, skin-beautifying nutrients are the antioxidants found in brightly coloured fruits and vegetables. In this module, we’ll go on a vibrant rainbow journey to learn about the powerful phytochemicals that repair, build, protect, rejuvenate and nourish the skin.
Using the ‘Rainbow Food Log’ you’ll investigate which colourful foods – and subsequent phytochemicals – are lacking in your own diet.
BOTANICALS, PHYTOCHEMICALS AND NUTRICOSMETICS
The fifth – and smallest – food group in the beauty pyramid is the most powerful.
This is where you’ll meet the superfoods and botanicals; nature’s anti-ageing medicine!
In this module, we’ll dive into these most potent specialist foods and dietary additions that will enable you to tweak your beauty nutrients to near perfection. You’ll also learn about specialised components – such as Ellagic acid, Beta Glucan, Catechins and Betalain – within these foods that have verified skin-beautifying, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties
These botanicals are nature’s botox.
TURN YOUR KITCHEN INTO A BEAUTY LAB
There are thousands of foods that fit the classification of ‘beauty foods’ but which ones are the best? Which ones are easiest to source, prepare and start introducing to your diet?
Which foods are the most powerful for detoxing, healing, rejuvenating and beautifying the skin from within? In this module, you’ll dive into the top 30 beauty foods and uncover the current scientific research that proves how powerful these simple plant foods are when it comes to vibrant skin.
