When considering the idea of holistic skincare, I think we can all agree that the definition is subjective. In some schools of thought, holistic skincare is thought of as simply using natural products and avoiding invasive treatments to improve the appearance of the skin. In my bestselling book, Love Your Skin, Love Yourself, I define holistic skincare as “treating the skin from the inside out and outside in using nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices, in addition to high-quality, natural skincare products to nourish and protect the skin.” I want to add my thoughts regarding technologies such as nanocurrent or microcurrent as well, because there are holistic aestheticians who do not believe in the usage of devices of any kind for the skin.
In my practice, I don’t mind the use of non-invasive (meaning they do not break the skin or remove layers of the skin) treatments that utilize technology such as LED, ultrasound, and certain currents (I do prefer bioidentical currents, which mimic ones naturally produced by the body) as a support to other holistic measures such as a whole foods-based diet, positive mindset, healthy lifestyle choices, and a natural (preferably handmade) skincare regimen. I do NOT support the usage of any device, treatment, or technology to REPLACE the aforementioned holistic measures. So all that being said, I recently learned about nanocurrent technology for the skin at the recent International Congress of Esthetics and Spa show in Philadelphia (where I was a speaker), from my friend and colleague, Jaclyn Peresetsky. Jaclyn was this year’s Congress host, and speaker and is also the CEO of Skin Perfect Clinic, Colore Me Perfect custom mineral makeup, and was the first US distributor of the NanoFace Pro nanocurrent device. The device is now available exclusively to licensed practitioners. I recently had the opportunity to interview Jaclyn for an episode of The Rachael Pontillo Show, where we definitely talked about nanocurrent, in addition to other therapies such as microcurrent and LED.

What I especially loved about this interview was that Jaclyn brought up a subject that’s very near and dear to me–the “why” behind skincare in general. We also got really real, just as women and moms (around the 19 minute mark) about the struggles we face as women and moms–and that no matter what your role is in your personal life and professional career, it so important to not play the comparison game! There’s always going to be someone out there who appears to have it all together, whether she’s another mom, a successful entrepreneur, or a beauty expert you see on TV or YouTube. I mention the quote “Don’t compare your behind-the-scenes to someone else’s highlight reel.” It’s so true.
“When we use beauty products and devices to try to look our best and be our best selves, there are underlying reasons that drive us to do that. We have to give those reasons love, just as much as we have to give our skin love.” (Click HERE to tweet that!)
