BETWEEN 80-90% OF SKIN AGEING IS THOUGHT TO BE CAUSED BY DIET & LIFESTYLE 

DRINKING MORE THAN 2L OF WATER A DAY CAN HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON SKIN PHYSIOLOGY. J. Cosmetic. Sci. 2007

6% of the body’s zinc is present in the skin where it is an important co-factor for several enzymes. 
(J Nutr. 2000)
.  Zinc deficiency is linked to alopecia, dry/scaly skin, dermatitis, slow wound- healing and thin hair (Podiatry Today, 2015)

Vitamin E works together with vitamin C to form a powerful team to quench UV- instigated oxidation (Silke et al)

You already know that nutrition is the main character...

You're just used to seeing it in skincare products and dermatological potions, lotions and other topical treatments.

How many of these ingredients do you recognise?

  • Chocolate & cacao polyphenols
  • Green tea catechins
  • Fruit enzymes such as papain from papaya
  • Limonene from citrus peel
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid from plant foods
  • Vitamin E from avocados
  • Resveratrol from red grapes
  • Ellagic acid from raspberries
  • Lycopene from juicy watermelon
  • Potent purple anthocyanins from dark berries
  • Nourishing oils from nuts & seeds
  • Sirtuin (youth protein) activators in strawberries
  • Anti-ageing quercetin from apples
  • Anti-skin cancer Selenium in Brazil nuts
  • Rutin in buckwheat
  • Collagen-building amino acids from Hempseeds
  • Carotenoids (from carrots & mangoes) in botanical sunscreen
  • Aloe Vera gel for skin elasticity
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids from Flaxseed
  • Curcumin from Turmeric in anti-ageing face masks
  • Newsflash:The skin is not a stomach

    These trending foods, nutrients and phytochemicals that you see on the labels of your skincare and dermatology brands are either foods or food extracts. But the skin isn't a stomach. It has a very limited capacity to absorb and assimilate these bioactive compounds directly.

    Science research shows us that these  potent plant extracts and nutraceuticals are significantly more powerful and biochemically active when they are eaten as part of the diet. This is why as a practitioner in the esthetic sciences you need to add nutrition to your professional toolkit.

    If the skin therapists of today don't study nutrition then the nutritionists of today will be the estheticians and dermatologists of tomorrow

      Dietary interventions have traditionally been an underappreciated aspect of dermatological therapy. Recent research, however, has found a significant association between diet and some dermatological diseases. Dietary interventions may be recommended as therapy, as in acne. Dietary change may help to prevent skin disease, as in aging of the skin or skin cancer.

      Dietary factors play an essential role in cutaneous homeostasis since they supply the nutrients necessary for good cellular functioning. Any shortage of these elements can lead to dysfunctions of the cutaneous structure, often hard to identify, since the clinical condition is oligosymptomatic. Nutraceuticals are associations of nutrients with benefits and synergistic effects. They act not only in response to any minor shortage of micronutrients but also in phenomena at the cellular level, associated with aging, dermatoses, and the cellular cycle

    1.

    To Promote Healthy Skin

    THE SKIN IS THE LARGEST ORGAN IN THE HUMAN BODY AND DIRECTLY AFFECTED BY THE NUTRIENTS THAT WE CONSUME. A HEALTHY DIET CAN PROMOTE HEALTHY SKIN, WHILE A POOR DIET CAN LEAD TO SKIN PROBLEMS SUCH AS ACNE, ECZEMA, AND PREMATURE AGEING. 
    2.

    And Offer Effective Treatments

    MOST SKIN CONDITIONS, SUCH AS ACNE AND ECZEMA, HAVE BEEN LINKED TO DIETARY FACTORS. BY UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE THAT NUTRITION PLAYS IN SKIN HEALTH, DERMATOLOGISTS AND ESTHETICIANS CAN PROVIDE MORE EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS FOR THESE CONDITIONS.
    3.

    To Understand Nutricosmetics

    MANY SKIN CARE PRODUCTS CONTAIN NUTRIENTS THAT CAN BENEFIT THE SKIN. BY STUDYING NUTRITION, DERMATOLOGISTS AND ESTHETICIANS CAN BETTER UNDERSTAND THE EFFECTS OF THESE INGREDIENTS AND RECOMMEND PRODUCTS THAT ARE MOST LIKELY TO BE EFFECTIVE.
    4.

    For Vibrant Happy Clients

    NUTRITION IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN OVERALL HEALTH AND WELLNESS. BY UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE THAT NUTRITION PLAYS IN SKIN HEALTH, DERMATOLOGISTS and estheticians CAN PROVIDE MORE COMPREHENSIVE CARE TO THEIR PATIENTS AND HELP THEM ACHIEVE OVERALL HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

    ...And reason 5: to be on the leading edge of what your clients want

    The convergence of food and cosmetics in the beauty industry is a major trend in the recent years, gaining an enormous importance on consumer habits including the diet, the nutritional supplement intake and food-based cosmetics

    Trends in Food Science & Technology

    The global market for nutricosmetics - digestible beauty products - is projected to reach $7.4 billion by 2020, driven by the 'beauty from within' trend.

    Global Industry Analysts Inc

    Beauty and anti-ageing is by far the largest sector in the $3.7 trillion wellness economy.

    With so much misinformation on the web the last thing you want to see is another Instagram 'expert' or TikTok influencer waxing lyrical about chia seeds, kale and collagen lattes...

    You just want valid peer-reviewed, scientifically-accurate information and practitioner-level training so you can up-level your current career and include skin-nutrition services for your clients or staff.

    Christina Ehrhardt | Germany

      Being a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and an Esthetician, going into the course I already had a very good understanding of nutrition and the skin.

    This means you can help your client eat their way to healthy, rejuvenated and healed skin without needing a degree in Nutritional Medicine.

    As with any client-facing service it is up to you to know the laws of the country, state or city that you practice in and to work only within your scope of practice

    Is there a payment plan?

    Yes, you can pay in monthly instalments. Here's how:

    Sometimes there's more than one payment plan so you can choose the one that suits your financial situation the best.

     Please note that students won't be allowed to graduate while in debt to Skin Nutrition Institute so if you select a 12 month payment plan you'll need to take the full 12 months to study as you won't be allowed to finish before your payment plan does.

    What do our students and graduates say?

    Praise from the professionals that have studied and graduated from our courses
      I was into nutrition and skin health a lot before I enrolled at the ABN. I had fairly healthy skin but the knowledge I learned during the beauty nutrition course took my skin to the next level.

    What fascinated me the most during the course was to learn which nutrients are the most important for youthful skin, in which foods you can find them and that they all have a slightly different effect on the skin, such as getting a beautiful glow or repairing sun damage

      I am still fascinated how Star manages to share her scientifically sound knowledge with us in an easily understandable way. The slides are to the point and filled with examples, which helps enormously to implement the exciting facts into practicable advice for our clients  

    Christina Ehrhardt | Germany

    Dipl.Oecotroph. - Nutrition & Scientific Affairs
      Being a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and an Esthetician, going into the course I already had a very good understanding of nutrition and the skin.  The Academy of Beauty Nutrition really helped me to tie them both together which in turn helped me to take my business to a whole new  level.  I love that I am able to offer my clients my added knowledge and transformative properties of beauty foods so they too can experience for themselves having younger, healthy and glowing skin

      Loved the layout of the course materials, felt seamless working through the content. Star is a pro, excellent at explaining things which could be otherwise complicated but her delivery and down to earth approach make learning this enjoyable
