Quotes

“We're learning more and more about the microbiome on our skin. We used to talk about the microbiome in our gut, but our skin also has trillions or bacteria that really help to create homeostasis where our skin is healthy…There is this gut-skin-brain axis that's becoming more and more learned about.” [7:52]

“What you put into your gut can really have profound impacts on your skin…Decrease the amount of sugar you eat, decrease the amount of processed foods that you eat…Make sure that you monitor what you eat. Go with organic foods. Eat the rainbow…What you put inside your mouth will definitely show up in your skin.” [16:40]
