Plant-Based Nutrition for Skin and Whole-Body Health
We can’t tell you how many clients come in with breakouts after buying a new protein powder or collagen supplement. Long story short…animal-based protein and collagen supplements are often times over stimulating and cause a spike in oil production and inflammation in the skin.
Sadly, many animal-based products are also using extremely low quality ingredients from animals who have been exposed to growth hormones, antibiotics, pesticide covered food sources and poor living environments.
These can create hormone imbalances, gut imbalances and quite simply wreck havoc throughout our systems, which is then demonstrated to us through our skin health. We always say the skin is like our own personal health coach giving us signs of our internal health. At Facial Lounge we read and interpret those signs so we can help you heal from the inside out.
We have an entire article coming soon that will go more in depth into the topic of animal-based protein powders/shakes/supplements and animal-based collagen powders/gummies/supplements. We are seeing so many clients react negatively to these overstimulating products that we really want to dive in deep and share why and how they can be causing skin and even health issues.
With that said, we are ecstatic to be offering a new product that will support your skin and whole body health with organic, plant-based superfoods. Facial Lounge Owner, Amber Johnson, met the Owner of UChooseSuperfoods during a facial session and the connection was instant. Amber is always on the lookout for organic, vegan, non-toxic products that are as effective as they are clean.
After learning more about UChooseSuperfoods (also a local, woman-owned business, you go girl!), Amber knew we needed to make these products readily available to our clients.
Here are the three UChooseSuperfoods products we will be stocking both in-store and online along with their superfood ingredients. We explain what each ingredient does for our health and especially our skin!
