Cleanse Your Way to Healthy Skin

by Keri Berardinelli

There are times when a facial client is in need of internal cleansing in lieu of that facial; when, addressing the inside terrain of the body makes more sense, for the support of the skin issue, than just solely addressing the outside surface where the source of the imbalance is visibly noticed. Whether your skin is expressing itself as acne, rosacea, or psoriasis, the skin is a mirror of the body’s inner terrain. Body cleansing is an integral method for achieving skin rejuvenation from the inside and many times the only way to heal a skin issue.

What Type of Cleanse?

There are many different ways to cleanse the body, from fasting to juicing, but what I have found to be the best type of cleanse for skin healing is nutritionally based, with the adjunct support of colon cleansing.

A nutritional cleanse combines both raw and cooked foods. The focus is on food quality, which equates with whole foods that are organic, non-GMO and free from added sugars, chemicals and preservatives. It’s an added plus if you can find them local as well. A nutritional cleanse focuses on nutrient density and eliminates many problematic foods, such as wheat and dairy, as such foods can create inflammation in the body and compromise gut function. This type of cleanse is both catabolic and anabolic, which means that it both detoxifies the body, as well as, builds the body up, creating a healthier, more vibrant you. It is the type of cleanse that can easily be converted into a lifestyle, as opposed to the many radical and/or fad diets that are on the market.

Nutritional cleansing programs will target gut integrity and will aim in balancing the intestinal microbiome. It will incorporate vitamins, herbs and varying super/functional foods to support liver detoxification, as well as, the opening of all the body’s detoxification pathways. Additionally, nutritional cleansing programs are greatly enhanced when combined with colon cleansing. I recommend colon cleansing by combining added dietary and supplemental fiber, toxin binders, mucilage herbs and the incorporation of enemas and/or colonics. This is a truly powerful added approach to cleansing, targeting the colon, achieving the most optimal results from your nutritional cleanse. People experience many benefits from such cleansing, such as more energy, improved sleep, better focus, improved moods, heightened sex drive, and a reduction, or a complete elimination, of symptoms and/or chronic conditions. Skin conditions are high on this list of healing, especially when dealing with acne, rosacea, psoriasis and eczema. Further, skin will appear less dull and more vibrant and youthful over time.

What About Facials and Topical Preparations?

In truth, facials and topical preparations just work better when the health of the inner body is also addressed, as these two methods of care work in harmony together. If you decide to ignore the health of your inner body and only address the surface, your results will be greatly limited, and you may eventually succumb to medically-based treatments, that may, or may not, have long term side effects.


Cleansing your body of toxins is a natural method of healing that works wonders for all skin types and conditions. It is the standard of holistic care that is truly life changing and transforming. Your skin will thank you.
