Holistic Skin Care or Holistic Beauty has certainly been causing lots of buzz lately.
What does it really mean?
You may have heard before that Holism is interpreted as the understanding that the whole is larger than the sum of its parts. In other words, that our body’s well being is a unified whole is more relevant than the well being of all its parts when combined.
Why is this such a new approach to skin care?
Because our skin - being the biggest organ in our bodies - is no longer viewed as an isolated organ or fragment of it or an individual unit. Quite contrary, it should always be studied and analysed in the context of the whole organism. In fact, the Holistic Skin Care concept entails a connection not only inside the body itself, but also and most importantly between mind and body. This connection is recognised as a key aspect of our body’s health, beauty and skin care. Since Holistic Skin Care perceives the skin as part of a whole, under this new light, our body, our emotions and even our environment are all intertwined and affecting each other. Hence, all of the above are believed to be reflected in the way our skin looks.
Skin conditions such as redness, rosacea, acne, eczema, etcetera all begin inside of the body. And often times as consequence of the digestive tract, or due to high stress levels. This is why, the traditional approach of following a specific skin treatment only ( as if our skin was a separate unit from the whole ) more often than not results ineffective or produces only short term relief.
Most key skincare industry players would agree that it is an exciting time to be a part of it! Every day, the Holistic Skin Care approach is opening the doors to new healing techniques, treatments, breakthrough formulations and lifestyle recommendations including never before seen organic ingredients which don’t fail to improve the skin. In fact, Holistic Skin Care has an ever growing popularity amongst skincare professionals nowadays. There most certainly seems to be an increasing public awareness that a person’s skin is nothing less but a reflection of his or her inner health.
This is why, Kristals Cosmetics’ unique concept - combining gem therapy and crystal healing skincare ingredients - has been so quickly valued and early adopted by a such an immense and growing fan base.
