Day 77/365 - On the Spa Doctor
Today I finally received the promotional book from ‘The Spa Doctor’: Clear Skin From Within by Dr. Trevor Cates. I already skimmed a bit through it but I can’t wait to read it thoroughly!
Skin has been a major area of interest for me in recent years. Contrary to recent treatment guidelines for skin disorders, skin health begins inside. The book is aptly titled because our internal environment is largely responsible for how it expresses on the outside.
The skin is the first thing the world sees of us. It makes first and lasting impressions, and presents an image, which may or may not coincide with our self-image. It can make or break our confidence in ourselves.
Whether it’s eczema, rosacea, acne, or an allergic inflammation, skin eruptions have an undeniable presence on our physique and psyche. In order to begin to tackle these problems, we need to look from the inside out. Our emotions, hormones, gut integrity, and skin flora should all be optimized for internal and external health, harmony, and beauty.
