An inside look at the Skintervention Guide with author Liz Wolfe (of Cave Girl Eats)

I am beyond thrilled to introduce my amazingly smart teaching and podcasting partner Liz Wolfe’s newest work – her Skintervention Guide. Liz has become one of the leading voices on natural skincare and treatments that work from the inside out. Her experience and depth of knowledge on various causes of – and remedies for – everything from acne and scarring to rosacea and psoriasis (and everything in between!) has helped countless men and women heal their own skincare woes. “Skintervention” takes Liz’s years of research, work, and professional experience and boils it down into a guide that you can use to resolve your own skin health issues AND natural skincare questions – one step at a time. 

This extremely comprehensive guide doesn’t just cover what to put on your skin to help it look better, but also what to do to clean up and improve your health from the inside – so that your skin can be beautifully glowing naturally, as it was intended to be. I have personally followed Liz’s advice and have had amazing improvements in the quality of my own skin, and I continue to recommend every client looking for skincare help to her work and now to this fantastic guide. It’s the best of its kind!

1. Why did you write the Skintervention Guide?

I wrote the Skintervention Guide for ME! Honestly, I’ve been through so much with my skin – it’s been across the map with everything from eczema to redness to blemishes and blackheads of all shapes and sizes. I’ve dealt with acne on my forehead, cheeks, jawline and even my neck. I’ve had oily, limp hair that HAD to be washed every single day or it would look like an oil slick had set in. When I changed my diet, I started realizing that the ingredients in my skin care products were as processed as any processed food, and I wondered if attacking my problems from the inside AND the outside could be the solution! With that all in mind, I set out on a mission to heal my skin and ditch all those products at the same time. This guide is the product of years of work and research helping to heal my own skin and change my own life! I am a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, working on my Master’s in Public Health, but even those credentials can’t compare to my personal drive to research and learn on my own so I can heal my own skin and body – and help others heal theirs.

2. What makes the Skintervention Guide different from other information I’ll find on health and skincare out there?

Conventional wisdom isn’t welcome! The Standard American Diet and the same old products and potions recommended everywhere we look do NOT work with our body’s natural needs. I cover territory that other so-called “solutions” don’t – I cover nutrition (what nutrients we NEED for healthy skin), digestion (how to get those nutrients where they need to go AND what to use on the outside to make for beautiful skin and healthy hair, nails, and teeth. It’s a fully digital guide, so folks get lifetime updates and can access my ongoing research and recommendations through a password-protected online resource guide. With a conventional book, it’d be impossible to offer continual updates without having to publish and purchase a whole new book!

3. What’s your favorite quick and easy tip that someone can use right now, before they even download this huge guide, to get on their way to clearer skin?

I’ve got a few: first, ditch any food that comes in a box, bag or package with a multi-ingredient label! If it requires an ingredients label, it’s not real food. Even if it says “healthy” or “whole” on the packaging. The secret to healthy skin starts with foods our great-grandparents would recognize – whole, unprocessed, unmodified, and unrefined! And never – I mean never – throw away an egg yolk! There are nutrients in egg yolk that our skin desperately needs.

Another tip: chew your food WELL. It can eliminate digestive irritation that can affect the skin. There is a LOT more information, nutrition tips, digestive help and topical solutions from cleansing to toning and exfoliating in my guide – over 200 pages worth!

4. What’s the biggest surprise you’ve come across in your research and experience in working with skin care clients?

For most clients, the problem is internal. This means that they need good food, the right nutrients, and digestion that works perfectly to see long-term change. Then, the right routine becomes icing on the cake. (Not that we’re eating cake!) This is about bringing the body and hormones into harmony, not beating them into submission. With real food and the right routine, change can be gentle, painless, and permanent.

5. What’s your favorite “fun fact” when it comes to skin care?

The skin LOVES topical oils! We’re so prone to be afraid of them, but there is absolutely NOTHING more nourishing to the skin. The right oils can help heal scars, combat acne, redness, and rosacea, fight wrinkles, and nourish the skin. The dermatologists whose work I follow admit this fact, but call it “paradoxical” – they just can’t understand it – but I call i common sense! Our skin makes its own oil to protect and nourish itself, and often using oil ON the skin helps regulate oil production. Jojoba oil is a great oil to replace conventional moisturizers! I brought Trina Felber, a skin care expert, on-board for the topical section of the Skintervention Guide to give all the details on the best oils in the world for skin care.
