Menopause can be an absolute b*tch to the skin. 

As estrogen declines, the levels of of elastin, hyaluronic acid and collagen can plummet, causing rapid and visible ageing of the skin. 

Your clients are already distressed enough going through the Menopause, they don't need the added shock of looking in the mirror and seeing a face they no longer recognise.

🌸 As a practitioner you know that lack of estrogen can cause loss of collagen but did you know that this decline can be managed and slow down with diet and phytochemicals?

🌸 Maybe you thought this rapid-onset skin-ageing is just inevitable and that women should 'grow old gracefully'. In this masterclass you'll learn why that is a terrible mindset and why it's important to preserve the structures of the skin as long as possible

🌸 Did you also know that other hormones can create havoc with the skin-ageing processes too?

🌸 Or maybe hormones are a bit of a mystery to you and you don't yet feel confident to help clients in perimenopause to rejuvenate their skin or slow down the ageing processes.

Is this an area of skin-ageing that you don’t know much about?

Here is your scientifically-valid dietary solution for helping your clients slow down menopausal skin-ageing and balance their hormones.

Our students love this class

Filled with enough info to kick-start my hydration goals. Be more grape and less raisIn!

The class is short which is to be expected however I loved it. A lot of short classes out there don't hold as much information. Enjoyed the science excerpts and study facts.  

Clear, useful and applicable right away. Thanks for this brush-up!

I love this info. It's so important for people to know that only using topical products won't give them the healthy, glowing skin they want.
It's just nice to finally find skin professionals that even think about nutrition being a primary factor in skin health 

I learned things I was not aware of, so quite informative actually!  


I think this course is great! It is nice to know the truth about not being able to hydrate your skin from the outside. Moisturizers and creams are made out to be so miraculous. I also love your humor throughout Star! Thank you for this

 During my work as a skincare formulator I noticed that so many cosmetic ingredients were foods or food extracts, I realised that the power to beautify, treat and rejuvenate the skin was in diet, nutrition and food...not skincare products
