NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL
Inside and Out!

 

I have had the opportunity to meet and work with amazing individuals who have shared their wisdom with me. I'm so grateful to them for being my teacher, as I'm a most anxious and eager student!  With gratitude and appreciation this page is dedicated to the late Dr. Joe Hansen, Dr. Dennis Everton, Glen Wright, Adam,and Louise, and the other colleagues and friends who share so abundantly and lovingly.   ~Ruth Ann Holloway

ENVIRONMENTAL AND OTHER FACTORS AFFECT YOUR SKIN!

Although your skin acts somewhat consistent throughout your life, some lifestyle choices and environmental factors will affect how your skin behaves. Younger skin requires constant care.  Living in the Rocky Mountains in Cache Valley our skin care needs are unique. Dry hot summers, cold inclement winters, put high demand on the health of your skin.

Feeling Beautiful.  For a woman, feeling beautiful with younger looking skin is a must!  It radiates all around us, through us, and in us.  We are what we radiate.

Benefit: Relieving stress can mean avoiding blemishes, hives, and under-eye circles. One more thing -- your mother was right: Habitually tense facial expressions can create permanent lines.  Beauty is as beauty does.

Benefit: You'll know inside what the benefits are, and others will know as well.

STRESS.  "Smile even when it hurts. It's your frown upside down."   Relax your mind. Find a few minutes to close your eyes, breath deeply and relax. Pay particular attention to relax all facial expressions, and let your face relax. Be grateful, and the smile will come naturally, and life will seem much better. 

SLEEP. Get 7-8 hours a night.  Deep rest. Start at 10:00 pm, as studies show between 10:00 pm and 12:00 pm the body has it's best rest and rebuilding. 

Your skin renews by building new cells while you sleep.  So...have sweet dreams, and rejuvenate!

How to manage:Use a specially formulated products for skin rejuvenation.

 Benefit:

SKIN AGING and TIME: At night to nourish and renew your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  As we get older, our skin becomes drier and loses elasticity. This causes fine wrinkles, lines, and loss of firmness. Use cleansers, moisturizers, and serums that renew, and protect your skin. At night the body renews...give it the best rest you can!

Negative Thoughts.  Are you surprised? Just like Salt, Sun, & Wind, and the other elements, "thoughts" are real.

The skin is a living entity made of living cells. Never talk bad about your body or skin, or yourself!  Besides, when you are thinkin' a stinkin' thought, you wrinkle your face...and cause "wrinkle memory".  So..avoid the Botox and relax your face, smile lots, laugh lots, and  as the song says, "Be Happy!"

How to manage:  How we view ourselves on the inside shows outwardly. Do something "Positive" for your skin/mind/body everyday. It will be easier and easier to feel wonderful in your new skin! The body responds to positive self talk. Talk to your body while looking in a mirror. Use positive energetic and loving words.  It's not silly, its healthy! 

"Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts."

 Extreme temperatures ~ Low or High humidity~Air Pollution~ Wind

Wind-borne dust, dirt, and smog can clog pores and choke your skin.

 How to manage: When cleansing, use a mild pure cleanser to "pre-clean". Then cleanse again.  Apply a "barrier" between you and that nasty stuff floating around you. Carefully cleanse and hydrate each night. With out exception. Strong wind, especially with extreme temperatures and low humidity, can cause dry, flaky skin.

 How to manage: Re-hydrate with a natural based moisturizer, or serum, designed to combat extreme conditions.. Both external cold and hot temperatures with low humidity deplete moisture from your skin.  The result... tight and dry.

How to manage: Ex-foliate, ex-foliate, ex-foliate.  In the Rocky Mountain region beautiful healthy skin requires constant exfoliation. For natural skin care treatment check out the Dr. Schrammek Herbal peel here: http://www.ddskintherapy.com/page/page/1326590.htm

...and talk to me about your personal home spa Dry Body Brushing for Lymphatic & Skin Cleansing, and Spa Silk Bath Therapy!

How to manage: Nourish skin with a balanced natural based moisturizer selected for your needs. Another hint: Use lukewarm, not hot or cold water to cleanse your face, followed by a brisk rinse of cold water. Press towel to dry. Low humidity robs your skin of essential moisture, while high humidity can make skin feel oily.

How to manage: Nourish your skin with a good natural based moisturizer to fight low humidity. In high humidity, that oily feeling isn't moisture -- you may need a hydrator that will help protect skin from dryness. Drink purified alkaline water. I like to drink at a minimum 8 oz. every hour of the day.

 The "No-No's." Alcohol, tobacco, refined sugars, packaged foods with lots of preservatives and artificial chemicals, and caffeine. Your skin will show premature aging by losing moisture, creating creepy skin, looking dull from the toxins in your skin, and your digestion will slow down. The skin is the largest eliminating organ. Thus you may feel and look look older sooner. The body reflects what is put inside. Younger looking skin is the result of your commitment to yourself. I look forward to helping you keep a younger skin that is radiant, healthy, and glowing!

The body is remarkable and will respond to proper care. Love the body you are in. Be grateful for how miraculous it is, and for the journey.

 Raw Food.  Fruits and Vegetables are a diet staple. Not just something to have once in a while.  Eat your food raw as much as possible.  This means more fresh uncooked vegetables, the brighter the color, the better.  (Try peeling a yam (orange in color...), slice it up, and eat it with a small amount of spinach/avocado dip or Tahini dip. Buy organic if it is fresh.

Juicing.  Juicing at first takes a little getting use to. Remember to go light on the fruit, you are getting concentrated  juice, and it should be used alone, diluted with pure water, or combined with fresh firm leafy greens (not iceberg lettuce...it will not juice) Do some research, or ask me for more information at your next appointment.  

Benefit: Live food=beautiful skin!  More vitamins, minerals, water, and fiber, without added sugar. Most cooked, canned, vegetables have sugar added...read the labels, and have lost their valuable natural mineral water content as well as digestive enzymes.  

Please ask me what equipment you may need, books, or how to begin. I am happy to assist you. 

 Eat Raw Fruit and Vegetalbes in season.

Benefit:

Fruits contain many nutrients, with fiber to clean out waste. Eat your fruits raw, without added sugar. Vitamin C is a potent free-radical scavenger that's known for its countermeasure and preventative benefits for sun- and environmentally-damaged skin.  It also helps to rebuild connective tissues in the body. In our Rocky Mountain area eating skin healthy fuits in season is not possible! So instead of eating canned fruits, buy fresh!

VERY important for your skins beauty.Vitamin C. Eat vitamin C-rich foods and take a good supplement, such as Ester-C ®, 1000 mg. daily. The fruits we eat many times are not tree ripened, and may not supply the body with enough Vitamin C, which is used up by the body within hours, especially when it is under physical or emotional stress. Our bodies do not store Vitamin C. It needs to be replenished every day. 

Vegetalbes, especially bright colored, are high in minerals to help sustain minerals in your blood stream.  Did you know your vitamins cannot be assimilated without minerals?  

Both Fruit and Vegetables help to hydrate, regnerate, and sooth the GI tract, as well as keeping elimination regular every day. If you do not have regular elimination every day, your skin and body will not be as healthy. 

 Water. Drink at least 8- 10 glasses of clean, non-chemical treated water per day. A good way to get enough water is to drink one glass for every hour you are awake. Foolproof!   

Benefit: Improved circulation, cell hydration, and accelerated cell growth.

 Exercise. Regularly. Find a few minutes, EVERY day of something that builds muscle and stamina, and moves the Lymphatic System. For more on your lymphatic system click here: http://www.ddskintherapy.com/page/page/1839366.htm

Benefit: Movement helps rev-up circulation and speeds blood flow to the surface of your skin. An added benefit: Exercise is proven to lessen stress, something we can all use.

Healthy glowing skin for a lifetime!

Benefit: Look younger longer. Make them guess your age! Sun is the most damaging of all environmental factors, enjoy it wisely! Think of the term UVR = Ultra-Violet-Radiation. Continued long exposure ADDS UP.  The damage expresses itself as dehydration, spots on the skin, and accumulative wrinkles. Remember, it is radiation! 

Sun exposure is one of the major cause of skin cancer. http://www.ddskintherapy.com/page/page/4551252.htm  You may ask, "How do I get enough Vitamin D?" It only takes 15 minutes a day of your skin being exposed to sunlight to start manufacturing Vitamin D.

Your Vitamin D is important to your body's structure (bones) and skin, as it helps Calcium to be absorbed. Your skin contains calcium as part of it's 'building blocks'. A few minutes a day, depending on your Fitzpatrick Type, can help with Vitamin D. You can also speak with your doctor (there are blood tests to see if you are "D"eficient) or a compounding pharmacist, about Vitamin D supplements. 

One of the best times to be in the sun is in the early morning before 9 am. The sun stimulates Vitamin D, which is a hormone. Early day exposure has less UVR= Radiation,helps with positive mood, and proper cell regeneration. Calcium uptake is important to beautiful skin (and bones). Start your day with just 5 minutes of light. Here in Utah with our 8 months of colder weather  ~ sitting by a sunny window is a great way to brighten your day. Enjoy 5-15 minutes of total solitude sitting next to a beautiful window to greet the day!

How to manage: Avoid long exposure, especially between 10a.m. and 4 p.m.,  and use a natural mineral sun screen like Parasol Sun Shield High 30.  Remember, sun damage is accumulative.

   
 

Skin Maintenance.  Taking care of your skin with professional skin caring services and products, ensures your skin the best defense against aging.  Every day counts...like time in an hour glass.  Ask for your personal lesson on body skin brushing for increased skin rejuvenation and lymphatic stimulation.

Taking care of yourself should be a pleasant experience, with benefits that last a lifetime
