229: Slowing Premature Aging & Natural Skin Beauty Tips - Alison Keith, Whole Story Skin
On Air with Ella - podcast episode 229
Aging gracefully is one thing, but aging EARLY? No thanks. In this episode, I'm talking to Alison Keith, founder and co-owner of Whole Story Skin [discount below!] about how:
Our skin is aging faster than our grandparents' generation - eek! What to do about it.
Premature aging is caused by environmental toxins (not genetics) such as diet, sun exposure, pollution and other toxins. How do we protect ourselves?
Botox isn’t skin care or preventative health, it's a temporary solution, a façade to younger looking skin. But whether we Botox or not, there are a few things we ALL need to be doing.
The beauty industry in general functions like western medicine: it medicates the symptoms, and does not address the root cause of the problem.
Natural preventative skin care addresses the root cause of aging by supporting the core needs of the skin, rather than temporarily treating the symptoms with chemical injections.
Beauty industry myths (example: moisture and hydration are different categories in the skin, they are not the same thing).
Water dehydrates your skin and triggers premature aging?! Whaaaat?
Fine lines, large pores and rough uneven texture are all caused by the buildup of dead skin cells over the years (this can be easily prevented)
The 5 needs of healthy skin: exfoliation, moisturizer, hydration (acidic water?!), protection, repair (Vitamin C!)
Ingredients Alison loves: Vitamin C, quality hyaluronic acid, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide
