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?

I'm sometimes asked why my products specifically target the effects of city-life. 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.
