Skin health and wellness is only possible if your whole body is fit and well!
This is not a philosophy that we made up, it’s a fact that skin care professionals need to adopt into their overall business. Skin health and wellness is a manifestation of nutrition, stress management, sleep patterns, fitness levels, and overall body care. None of the treatments that we as skin care professionals do in a treatment room or products that we recommend for home care will have their maximum benefits if clients don’t have good fitness and wellness habits.
Fitness and Skin Health and Wellness
Fitness is a huge factor in skin health and wellness. Fitness and skin care expert Zen Miller talks about this in her recent article Exercise + Skin Care – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Zen is a group fitness instructor, Massage Therapist, and Esthetician and has been doing this for decades.
Exercise + Skin Care – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
“Exercise and skin care – yes, it’s a known fact that every cell in the human body benefits from physical activity. It is also known that there is no supplement or medication that has proven to be as strong or effective as regular exercise for improving immune strength, cardiovascular health, bone density, and lowering stress. Exercise is excellent to help maintain weight, and boost your mood and self-esteem…. Read Full Article”
Nutrition and Skin Health and Wellness
Nutrition is another often overlooked key element of optimal skin health and wellness. We know this from the incredible article by Dr. Erin Madagin-Fleck, Operation Transport – How Nutrition Feeds the Skin, Dr. Madigan-Fleck is a well-respected author, speaker, and educator in the professional skin care industry.
Operation Transport – How Nutrition Feeds the Skin
Nutrition and the way the body utilizes nutrients obtained from food involve several biochemical processes and functions involving the status of the digestive system, cellular metabolism, and metabolic sequencing. Bioavailability is an essential transportation method for delivering nutrients. It includes the availability, absorption, retention, and utilization of nutrients consumed. Read Full Article Here”
How Stress and Sleep Impact Skin Health and Wellness
We know that lower stress levels and good sleep help us have optimal levels of skin health and wellness. We know this from the article by Dr. Kali rater! In her article, 5 Healthy Lifestyle Tips for Healthy Skin.
“Reduce Stress and Get Good Sleep”
These two topics are often not discussed when we think of skin care. Your nighttime routine might need to include better sleep hygiene after your nighttime skin care regimen. Making sure you get adequate sleep helps support your body’s collagen production. Lack of sleep can also drive up the stress response which by nature is inflammatory. When we are under high stress our inflammatory response goes up which can create more damage to the skin including accelerating skin thinning and breakdown. Stress also leads to cortisol production which over time leads to more dehydration, impaired wound healing, and increased loss of collagen in the body.” Dr. Kali Prater

DermaJEM’s Anima Curva
Barry has had 3 treatments with this device and loves the results. Keep your eye on Instagram for a post about his treatment and images.
The Curva combines tried and tested technologies for body contouring like cavitation and radiofrequency and supercharges them, by adding LED and vacuum therapy. Not just standard vacuum therapy, but super pulsed vacuum therapy!
The Curva features a 38khz cavitation, which is even more powerful than traditional 40Khz cavitation. The 38Khz waves are wider than the 40Khz waves allowing them to penetrate deeper into the fat layers, which in turn make the treatment more effective and provide faster results than traditional 40K cavitation. The best part is it is painless and safe.

DMK’s Body Enzyme Therapy utilizes the power of enzymes to completely rejuvenate the skin.

He took 2 on day 3 of the show and had energy and even went out to dinner after the show. He also didn’t feel as exhausted after the show was over, which he normally feels beat up!

SculptICE Detox + Burn
Jenni swears that Detox + Burn has contributed to the overall changes that she has seen in her body. She’s had several body contouring services and has used SculptICE’s LIPO Drops and Detox + Burn during the whole process.
Natural Fat Burner Supplement
Dietary Supplement | Gluten-Free | 100% Vegan | Non-GMO
This Fat Burner Supplement is a mix of ingredients to detox and lower body fat. This combination eliminates and “burns” adipose tissue. Contains 8 vitamins and other natural ingredients to improve the body silhouette.
Sesha Skin Therapy – MuscleSculpt
Jenni’s had a treatment with this device and LOVED the results. It’s one of the treatments that she attributes to helping to improve the stretch marks and abdomen firming that she’s been working to correct as a result of carrying a 9 pound baby.
Muscles account for about 35% of the body, and most slimming devices on the market only focus on eliminating fat but not muscle toning. Currently, only injections and surgery are used to improve the shape of the buttocks.
In contrast, the SESHA MuscleSculpt device, which uses the most advanced high-intensity focused magnetic vibration technology, directly stimulates motor neurons, so that the body’s muscles continue to expand and contract.
This kind of contraction cannot be achieved by typical exercise. The energy pulse of a 30-minute treatment can stimulate 30,000 strong muscle contractions, which help the fat cells metabolize vigorously.
SilcSkin Decollette Pads
Multi-Functionality is key here! Camille first told Jenni to try these pads on her thighs to help with stretch marks and cellulite – then Jenni became obsessed and did a case study. If you want to work on stretch marks and cellulite – definitely give these a try!
The Decollette pads are designed to correct and prevent chest wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and sleeping on your side. They’re also great for stretch marks! They are very discreet to wear any time of day. Made of 100% medical grade silicone, they contain no allergy-causing latex, urethanes, or adhesives.
Designed by 2 time Emmy Award-winning makeup artist, Camille Calvet.
