The Lanby teamed up with FaceGym to host a masterclass on the internal and external approach to skin health. Soho House NYC was brimming with guests soaking up the knowledge and wisdom from our Wellness Advisor, Taylor Fazio, and FaceGym Master Trainer Monifa Coffee as they shared skin care techniques and wellness tips about the nutrients that impact skin health inside and out. Here are the top 5 takeaways:

1. H2O!

Adequate water intake is essential for skin health and overall hydration. Without drinking a sufficient amount of water your skin will appear duller, and wrinkles and pores will be more prominent. To ensure plump skin, be sure to drink 2-3 liters of water per day. This will mean your skin is less likely to crack or have irritations and blemishes. 

2. Electrolytes support hydration from the inside out. 

Electrolytes are responsible for directing water and nutrients to the areas of the body where it's needed and maintaining optimal fluid balance inside the cells. Along with water, the body also needs sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and chloride aka electrolytes. These minerals regulate a staggering number of processes in the human body. Sodium helps with fluid balance and muscle contraction. Potassium helps with blood pressure and the beating of your heart. Magnesium helps with muscle contraction, heart function, and even anxiety. We absorb electrolytes through food and drink. Electrolytes and minerals provide deep hydration that creates a thriving ecosystem for our bodies.

3. Collagen is the primary building block of your skin, muscles, bones, and more.

Studies show that collagen supplements taken orally improve skin moisture, elasticity and hydration. So, in addition to topical products that allow for a topical application of collagen, ingesting collagen is proven to reduce the wrinkles and roughness of the skin.

4. Vitamin C provides an antioxidant defense and supports collagen production.

In addition to boosting immunity and combating oxidative stress, Vitamin C also improves collagen production. It stimulates collagen synthesis and assists in antioxidant protection against UV-induced damage. 

5. Probiotics support glowing skin

Probiotics are known to support the gut microbiome, but they also have a huge impact on skin health. A healthy gut that is able to properly absorb nutrients can directly improve skin.  

Taking care of your skin is a practice done from the inside and out. Talk to your primary care physician for guidance on how to get started on optimizing your skin care. For more information on The Lanby and our care team approach,  book a consult call or join the club today!
