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.

'Thorough and excellent' The Times

We all want a healthy, glowing complexion, but are we going about it the right way?

Our skin is influenced by many different factors, from our individual genetics to stress, and nutrition to sleep. Each one of these is a piece of a puzzle. Over a decade of treating patients, consultant dermatologist and registered nutritionist Dr Thivi Maruthappu has found that each piece counts. When it comes to our skin we need to start taking a more holistic view, which is why Dr Thivi has devised an innovative, science-backed way to help you achieve the skin that you want: the 4-Step Skin Solution.

Building on pioneering research into the powerful links between the gut microbiome and the skin, Dr Thivi's unique approach prioritises skin health while also helping you to feel great along the way. SkinFood will also explore the importance of the mind-body connection and its vital role in supporting our skin, as well as offer advice on how to develop a bespoke skincare routine that includes ingredients that work for you.

With over forty delicious, tried-and-tested SkinFood recipes designed to target a number of concerns - including acne, ageing well, rosacea, psoriasis and eczema - and in-depth, tailored advice, SkinFood aims to replicate a conversation you might have in a dermatologist's clinic to help you put your skin health at the top of the agenda.
