The Beauty of Dirty Skin, the Surprising Science of Looking and Feeling Radiant from the Inside Out by leading dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe is a must-read for anyone looking to slow down the aging process and improve their skin’s appearance. Not only will you learn which foods, actions, and products may be impeding your skin care, but more importantly, you will learn why.
In her book, The Beauty of Dirty Skin, Dr. Whitney Bowe explains the interrelatedness of our gut, our mind and our skin. Research over recent years has been telling us that what we put in our mouths matter. In this book, you will learn the science behind our gut and how that plays a role in our skincare. In her three-week plan, you will learn how to attack skin issues, through improving your gut’s natural biome and how to take simple, actionable steps to clear your mind and diet for better, and clearer skin.
Although the scientific explanation can get a bit lengthy at times, we found it useful for understanding why you need to change your approach to skincare. Once you get through the science behind this , she divulges want you really want to hear – what you should eat, what type of vitamins you need to take, proper skincare products, how to exercise and why you need to meditate. Some of the information Dr. Bowe presents may already be familiar to you, but there is so much more to learn from this book.
Listen, I have tried it all… seriously. I love her plan. It made me feel like I could really do this. SO, I am. I know you are thinking you have to give up all those things you love but I promise you can still have chocolate, just have the right kind. You can still have wine maybe not as much as you like or I like but it’s reasonable. You can still have good food, just cut out the stuff you already know is not good for you. I won’t lie and tell you its a cake walk – but is it doable? Yes!
I’m always reading articles and books on how to improve my health, stay fit and how to improve my skin as I age. This book combines all of those topics and showed me what I was missing, especially when it comes to the importance of probiotics for my gut and in my skincare line-up. I am following Dr. Bowe’s advice and have already seen improvements to my skin. I’m really excited to have this book as a reference for vitamins, advice on probiotics, recipes, and natural masks that i can make at home to combat specific skin issues.
