Program looks at foods and healthy skin

Crystal Wellman, the skin care expert behind Ladyburg in downtown Fredericksburg, is teaming up with the local nonprofit Doctor Yum Project to educate teenagers and adults about what foods create healthy skin.

The class will be offered Sept. 17 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 10482 Georgetown Dr., Suite B, Spotsylvania.

Attendees will learn snack recipes that support healthy skin and receive Wellman’s skin care products. Tickets are $35.

Wellman recently branched Crystal Clear Acne Clinic from Ladyburg to deal specifically with holistic acne treatment focused on treating the causes of acne rather than the system.

At the clinic, she offers her own acne products and works with clients to implement treatments and help them create a healthier lifestyle.

“A healthy lifestyle directly correlates to healthy skin and fewer acne breakouts,” she said. “It’s important to know what foods are good for your skin and what can cause inflammatory breakouts.”

She says people of any age can attend the class. Acne isn’t just a teenage problem, she said, and most of her clients are adults.

“When trying to come up with exciting new ways to inspire people to eat in a more healthful way, we realized that clearing up acne may be a motivating reason,” Nimali Fernando, pediatrician and founder of the Doctor Yum Project, said.
