Welcome to your holistic skincare regime
Have you ever noticed how a lack of self-care results in feeling unwell and having dull looking or irritated skin? We have all been there. Yet, many skincare companies develop their products without considering the holistic health of your Brain-Body-Skin axis.
We at J’TANICALS believe imbalances to be the root-cause of all problems and can manifest themselves as skin conditions, stress, anxiety, and in some cases ill-health.
The way we address these imbalances is by looking at the body holistically – with a focus on keeping the Brain-Body-Skin axis in balance. The skin can reflect the physical and mental health of a person. You probably have experienced the effects of stress and nutrition on your skin yourself. Indeed, there is scientific evidence for interactions in what is called the Brain-Body-Skin axis.
When we speak about holistic well-being, we are considering well-being on the psychological level, the physical level and in turn the well-being of your skin.
Holistic well-being considers the entire Brain-Body-Skin axis.
You are probably aware of the damage and impact chronic stress has on your physical and mental health. But did you know that your skin is affected as well? Chronic stress can trigger or exacerbate skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, or pruritus. It can also accelerate skin ageing. Such skin conditions in turn can have negative effects on the psychological well-being by lowering self-esteem or even leading to social anxiety.
Focusing on finding mental balance, finding the courage to say “no” once in a while. Doing what makes you genuinely happy will enrich your life entirely. As a beautiful side effect, your skin will calm as well.
Diet and nutrition play a profound role in nourishing your body, mind and skin. A diet high in processed foods and sugar can not only impact your general health, increasing risks of disease including Type 2 diabetes and cognitive decline, but also your skin. Skin is also impacted by high sugar intake as well, increasing the risk of inflammation that can break down collagen and elastin.
Regular, gentle, physical exercise, whilst benefiting body and brain will improve circulation to keep skin cells healthy and toxin free to encourage a truly glowing skin. A balanced, healthy diet full of vegetables, fruits, probiotics, fibre – and of course the occasional treats – will support your inner and outer health.
Your skin is an important and complex organ. It protects you from environmental, thermal and mechanical stressors. It fends of germs, is an important sensory organ and protects your body from dehydration. Yet, we can easily forget our skin’s superpowers and sometimes don’t treat it with the care it deserves.
While some skin conditions are results of complex processes of our hormones, mental health, lifestyle choices, and getting older, we often only focus on what products and ingredients to use for treating these symptoms and not the underlying reasons . Oftentimes, we end up treating blemishes and breakouts with harsh chemicals and excessive exfoliation. More often than not these harsh treatment can make skin conditions worse by sensitising the skin. A sensitised skin has a compromised barrier function. This imbalance prevents the skin doing one of its major functions: keeping moisture in and bacteria out of the skin.
These are all reasons to look at you skin holistically and to take care of yourself and your skin. Having a good skincare regime using high quality ingredients and products will help your skin to calm.
Bye, bye "Instagram face", hello true beauty.
