A holistic guide to skincare from a consultant dermatologist and nutrition expert that equips readers with the knowledge to understand the powerful relationship between skin and nutrition - and how what you eat can play a huge role in the overall appearance and health of your skin.
We all want healthy, glowing skin, to age well, and to keep the wrinkles at bay. And often we believe that the answer to all our skin woes can be found in an expensive jar of face cream - but what if the first step to baby soft, visibly clear skin is in fact what's on your plate?
In Skin Food, leading consultant dermatologist, nutrition expert and researcher Dr Thivi Maruthappu will draw on her experience of treating patients for over ten years, as well as the latest scientific research, to explain how our diet affects our skin - and how understanding the relationship between nutrition and skin will allow you to glow from within. This book will offer no-nonsense, practical advice and tips to help answer your pressing questions on various skin concerns including:
Which foods can help fight wrinkles and reduce signs of ageing?
How can you eliminate key triggers from your diet to reduce oil production and clear acne?
Which nutrients will help to improve acne scarring and redness, and how can you incorporate more into your diet?
Which supplements offer real skin care benefits and which ones are best avoided?
How can changes in your diet help tackle chronic skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and eczema?
Skin Food will take a personalised, tailored approach to equip you with the information you need to adapt your diet - because when it comes to skin, we all know there isn't a one-size-fits-all fix. With delicious, tried-and-tested recipes designed to target a number of skin concerns and in-depth, expert advice, this book aims to replicate the sort of conversation you might have in a dermatologist's office, without having to break the bank.
