For the next eight weeks you will be provided with a set of objectives and some supporting reading materials.
What To Expect
Here’s what you can expect:
- Weekly modules contain objectives and supporting reading materials
- End of week reflections are encouraged and can make the process much more rewarding
- Your feedback helps further improve the program
The Points System
Points are used to control access to SkinSupport program content.
These points are provided at account creation and throughout the length of the program.
Premium members are automatically assigned 100 points at registration. This is the maximum amount of points a member can earn. This unlocks all program content and allows you to work through the program at your own pace.
Community members are assigned 10 points at registration. This unlocks the informational sections and the first module of the program. Additional points must be earned through reflection at the end of each module or by simply waiting 7 days.
- Earning Points Through Reflection
Each module includes a reflections section at the end. These sections are ment to provide you with a way to share your thoughts and evaluate your progress throughout the program. Submitting a weekly reflection awards 10 points and unlocks the next module.
- Weekly Points Assignment
If you really don’t want to participate in the reflections, points are automatically assigned every 7 days. You don’t need to do anything to earn these. Simply re-visit the website after 7 days and these points should be assigned to your account.
To get a good understanding of how the program is structured, here are the main 8 modules for you review:
There is delicate relationship between your digestive system and the state of your skin. By improving one, you provide the building blocks needed by the other.
Achieving Dietary Balance
Dietary choices should not be overly focused on single nutrients and components. Instead, balance must be achieved to provide the stability your immune systems need to thrive.
Controlling Stress and Anxiety
Stress, anxiety and depression are known to worsen various chronic skin conditions. Finding strategies to deal with these issues can significantly reduce their burden.
The first three parts have covered a lot of ground. This module allows individuals to catch up and connects the various topics discussed previously.
There are certain habits that are detrimental to your health. Isolating the addressing these factors can go a long way to stabilizing immune function and further reducing stress.
Various environmental factors may irritate the skin and intensify existing symptoms. Understanding the things that may be doing some of the damage is the first step to stability.
Improving Barrier Function
The outermost layer of the skin is one of it's most important protective components. Discovering ways to improve this barrier can prevent many issues down the line.
Time to wrap things up. This module attempts to provide a summary of the content discussed and highlight the important takeaways from the program.
Let me know if you run into any issues, need any assistance or if have any questions/concerns. Community support is provided via the dedicated program forum.
Hope the whole journey proves useful and worthwhile.
Best wishes for the eight weeks ahead!
