Just off the presses, a fascinating book about our skin. Dr. Whitney Bowe tells it all, from the technical and scientific aspects of skin care to the emotional and psychological.
Here’s what the publisher has to say about The Beauty of Dirty Skin: The Surprising Science of Looking Radiant from the Inside Out.
In recent years, science has shed new light on the connection between the gut and the brain. Now, for the first time, The Beauty of Dirty Skin spells out the connection between the microbiome—the balance of healthy microorganisms that inhabit your body inside and out—and skin health.
In the book, Dr. Bowe provides data-driven knowledge and life-changing, actionable advice, including:
An explanation of the gut-brain-skin axis, the hidden factor of skin health
How you can turn your diet into a solution to myriad skin problems, including 5 fundamental dietary rules about what to eat and what to avoid for glowing skin
How oral probiotics are the new emerging antibiotics, and can work wonders on skin health
Why we have an epidemic of adult acne, rosacea, eczema, and premature aging today (including skin cancer!)
Why some of today’s skincare products, including organics and antibacterials/antimicrobials, can inflict lasting damage
How to send signals of beauty to your skin through 3 lifestyle interventions: the power of sleep, exercise, and meditation.
With simple explanations of the science behind Dr. Bowe’s findings, do-it-yourself practical skincare strategies, and a life-changing 3-week program, The Beauty of Dirty Skin will forever change the way you look at loofahs, Diet Cokes, fat-free milk, energy bars, and antibiotics.
