Video: the Myth About Diet and Skin

Video: The Big Skin vs. Diet Myth

Skin and Diet: the correlation, and the myth that messes skin up!

.
I made this video this summer. I was pretty annoyed by the biggest lie in dermatology (or one of, anyhow) : that there’s NO correlation between diet and skin. WHAT!? So wrong. Oh, so wrong it hurts (literally.)

Oh, by the way, I need to point out a few things. Since I didn’t use a script or a draft for this vid, I made a couple of mistakes! (Oh me, so human.)

  • For one, it was Hippocrates that said “let food by your medicine” (and I’m paraphrasing).
  • Also, please don’t get the impression that I think chocolate is harmful to skin! A high quality chocolate can do no wrong, in my eyes. (Please, don’t tell me otherwise! I loves me my choco!)
  • Also, and this is Adri that wanted me to add this: when I say “It’s taken as a fact” I don’t reaaaallly mean fact-fact, like there are a billion conclusive, in-depth studies saying that my words are 100% irrefutable. (That guy…so literal.)

NOW TELL ME (and everyone else):

What’s your experience with the correlation between food and your skin’s appearance and health? What are some of the biggest no-no’s you have learned to stay away from?

It's pretty straight-forward: skin has the simple (yet paramount) task of being your body's barrier from the outside elements. It's naturally doing a good job, for certain, but many of those elements that it's protecting you against?  Those aren't natural. Your skin's natural defenses can only take so much abuse. You are wearing a coat of armour for a whole other kind of battle.

Let me just be stark about this. You know what you don't want in common with a Sea Captain? Weathered skin. And scurvy, probably. Eat those lemons.

 

"Weathering" happens to everything. It's the law of the universe that all things naturally lean towards chaos and destruction. (It's called entropy, but let's not get too nerdy right now.)
