A5M + COSMEDICON present Skin Health Workshop



Gut health has an enormous impact on all aspects of everyday life including our physical appearance. Our digestive health is the pivotal point in the function of the human body, affecting our skin, its hydration, ageing and function. 

Systemic inflammation & nutritional deficiency contribute to the vast majority of skin problems and its ability to recovery from sun damage, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and premature ageing.

This one-day workshop will provide you with the opportunity to understand the connection between gut health balance and the prevention of skin disorders and ageing. You will also examine the roles of genetics, epigenetics, detoxification, hormone balance and digestive function in terms of skin health, with a focus on strategies for achieving optimal skin health.


  • The function of the gut microbiome
  • The connections between the skin and the gut microbiome
  • How to take a systemic approach to your client's health as well as their skin
  • How to educate your client, assess their outcomes and create realistic expectations
  • The complex interactions of diet, lifestyle and environment with gene expression and the microbiome
  • Skin health benefits of fasting
  • New frontiers in skin health and the role of nutritional support and supplements both internal (including IV) and external (topical) to support gut health
  • Genetics versus epigenetics: the impact of what you eat and when, exposure to toxins and life stressors on your health, skin problems and premature ageing

Join us in March for this important workshop designed to provide you with a framework for a holistic approach to repairing both the body and skin and achieving realistic outcomes.
Our expert panel of presenters will teach you how to integrate these strategies to the clinic environment.
