About the Natural Skincare & Nutrition course

Learn how to have natural healthy skin today

It no surprise that our skin, the largest organ in our body responds to what we eat. So, if we want radiant, glowing skin we must give as much attention to how we look after it on the inside, as we do on the outside. The good news is if we nourish and feed our skin properly then the whole of our body benefits too! Our skin is a remarkable barometer of our body’s health, and can really tell the story of what is going on inside of our bodies. The condition of our skin is therefore highly influenced by what we eat and drink. Stress, lifestyle and environmental factors such as overexposure to the sun are also all contributory factors to ageing and affect the complex structure and anatomy of the human skin.

This course will focus on how we can look after our skin from the inside out, focusing on the importance of nutrition, diet, supplementation and lifestyle:

This course offers you the chance to learn about:

  • Anatomy and physiology of the Skin
  • Functions of the Skin
  • Different skin types
  • Skin nutrition and how to ‘Eat yourself beautiful’
  • Common skin complaints

What our students say:

“I wanted to say how fantastic these two weekends have been, not only the nuts and bolts of what our lecturer Geraldine taught, but also the passion and inspiration she brought with it. In just one week I’ve completely transformed my diet and I’m already seeing the fruits of it in a healthier complexion and bags more energy. I’ve known the theory of good nutrition for so long, but never really put it into practice. Thanks for the inspiration for making better and more natural food choices. Maybe my next step is CNM’s Nutrition Diploma!” -V.G.
