Diet is the new Dermatology

Skin disorders have traditionally been treated topically with lotions and potions as though the skin were detached from the body instead of being a hard-working organ system that is connected to the rest of the living organism we call 'the human body'

Current science now shows an emerging trend that food, nutrition and diet have the BIGGEST input on both preventing skin disorders AND treating them. Nutrients in the diet build, maintain and repair the skin so it makes sense to stay on the cutting edge of your profession and give your clients the best and most up-to-date treatments available.

 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

How will I use this Nutridermatology® knowledge with my own clients?

If you're qualified and legally allowed to give personalised nutrition information and plans to your clients (this is usually true of professionals with degrees in dietetics or nutrition) you can 'add in' your new knowledge to how you already work with clients: coaching, food analysis, meal plans etc - we provide you with a stack of material for you to use directly but you can also integrate what you've learned into your 1-1 coaching.

If you're from the esthetics, skincare and dermatological industries you might find that legally (in your country) you can't offer personalised nutrition BUT can use all of the ready-made client material we give you upon graduation. This means you can help your clients with their food and diet without needing a degree in nutrition.

What our students and graduates say about us

I started working with Star about six years ago when I first started learning to formulate. She is very professional in her programme delivery. The courses are highly informative, insightful and enjoyable. I have enrolled on ALL Star’s courses and am currently working my way through the Academy of Beauty Nutrition and am fascinated, thoroughly enjoying the professionally compiled modules
I really love your modules. Being a nutrition scientist, I really appreciate that everything you teach has a sound scientific base
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
