Nice to meet you..
Hi! I am Dora,
Skin issues can be devastating and control the way we feel about ourselves. With standards that are unrealistic in our society, the way we look influences the way we feel and consequently affects our lives.
I know this first hand because it is my story.
My journey in skin and wellness started when I was a child. I constantly experienced a lot of different skin issues, rashes, acne, eczema, hives, you name it, it was so frustrating.
Simple activities like going to the pool with your friends or accepting a dinner invitation became challenging, one never knew if it was going to be a good or a bad skin day.
Those skin challenges awakened my curiosity to study the skin at a deeper level and led me to become a Skin professional.
After working with dermatologists for over a decade looking for answers, I learned a lot about skin, however; I also discovered that there was a huge gap in the way chronic skin conditions were treated in mainstream medicine, addressing only the symptoms without looking into the root cause of the problem.
Many skin conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema, etc. are often linked to digestive, immune problems or even multi-factorial roots and without taking a deeper look at what is going on at a deeper level, restoring balance is not possible and symptoms inevitably re-occur.
Such was my case, being prescribed costicosteroid creams over and over again as the only option without considering other lifestyle factors.
The skin is finely in tuned with our health, therefore, factors like gut health, sleep quality, good nutrition, hormonal balance, hydration and stress management among many others, are big determinants in skin integrity and resilience.
My thirst for answers continued and guided me to studying holistic and functional methods of natural healing which gave me the knowledge to make strategic changes in my nutrition and lifestyle habits.
Those changes not only made profound improvements in my skin, but also made me feel better, more energetic and healthier.
I adapted a balanced and realistic heathy lifestyle including anti-inflammatory foods and other holistic selfcare practices which became my new way of living and now at the age of 50 I can tell you that the benefits of being proactive and mindful about what you do to support your health and your body to be resilient and vital are powerful.
Now, my mission is to share my knowledge and my experience with other people and empower and support them in their own wellness journey by listening to their story and educating them on selfcare, skin treatments, healthy eating and nourishment of the mind and body to fit their needs and their own unique life.
