An Australian clinic is helping hundreds of women transform their skin inside out in just five weeks by analyzing their sleep, stress and hormonal health.

Chakra Face and Body in Doncaster, 10 miles northeast of Melbourne CBD, takes a holistic approach to beauty, meaning treatment is based on what happens in the body rather than the imperfections that only appear on the face.

The clinic’s founder, Kiki Chakra, 34, believes that “skin is a reflection of our general health.” Issues like spots and rosacea are tell-tale signs that we are missing an important nutrient or mineral.

Ms. Chakra and her team of therapists conduct special consultations to evaluate the lifestyle, sleep pattern, intestinal health and hormonal balance of their clients before prescribing treatment with edible food supplements and topical creams.

Customer photos taken before and after treatment show incredible changes, with chronic conditions like cystic acne and dermatitis almost completely eliminated in just over a month.

Since opening her clinic in 2010, Ms. Chakra has helped countless clients restore the natural glow of their skin without relying on expensive products or professional facials.

After the initial consultation, their therapists often refer clients to naturopaths, Chinese herbalists, and integrated physicians so that they can address any underlying problems that may manifest externally on the skin.

“We start our clients with a skin consultation on sleep, stress, hormonal health, contraception and bowel health – everything right down to bowel movements,” Ms. Chakra told Daily Mail Australia.

“You cannot treat externally without treating the internal functions of the skin.”

Chakra works with skin care companies that make prebiotic and probiotic supplements that are prescribed for customers who need good bacteria in the gut.

The clinic has partnered with Australian brand Regul8, which specializes in edible probiotics and colon cleansers made from traditional Chinese herbs.

For topical treatments like facials and masks, Chakra uses products from DMK, a clinical brand that creates products that act like an ecosystem for the skin.

Transformations can take anywhere from five weeks to six months, Ms. Chakra said, but no customer leaves without a lesson on what it takes to care for their own skin.

“We want to give them the skills and knowledge to take care of themselves,” said Ms. Chakra.

“Every journey is very different, but there is no quick fix – it’s about taking care of the relationship between your body and your skin.”

Kiki Chakras tips for healthy skin from the inside out

1. Eat good fats like ethical salmon, avocado, nuts, and quality essential fatty acid supplements.

2. Keep your water intake above two liters a day. “It’s clichéd and everyone says it, but it really flushes out toxins,” she said.

3. Take one pre- and probiotic tablet with food twice a day.

4. Avoid foods high in sugar and acid, which not only fatten you, but also accelerate the aging process by deepening the appearance of wrinkles.

5. Avoid smoking and limit your alcohol consumption to avoid dehydration of the skin.

“We’ve worked with a lot of celebrities, but we’re really about the common people who visit us all the time,” said Ms. Chakra.

The clinic’s seven therapists are fully booked five days a week, and Ms. Chakra has just signed the lease for a second location that will open on Bondi Beach in Sydney in June.
