The Beauty of Dirty Skin

By Whitney Bowe, MD

Little Brown     2018
278 pages     Health and Wellness
The Shortlist

Dr. Whitney Bowe, a dermatologist, has created an incredible guide to radiant skin that, while not surprising, relies more on what a person puts in her body than what she puts on her face. In The Beauty of Dirty Skin, Dr. Bowe explains what she calls the gut-brain-skin connection and the value of probiotics for skin care. She discusses dietary recommendations, as well as recommendations for exercise, meditation and sleep.

In the third section of the book, Dr. Bowe puts it all together with a three week schedule and plan of action for “smooth, youthful, clear skin.” This section includes recipes for both your insides and your outsides.
This is an excellent book, full of good, practical advice. Dr. Bowe has appeared on a number of television shows over the last few weeks. You can check out a couple:  Good Morning AmericaThe View, and Rachael Ray.

The Beauty of Dirty Skin is easy to read and understand, very practical, and helpful. I especially appreciated the list of recommended supplements and dosage amounts.
