While attending a plastic surgery conference I heard Dr. Rubin, a well-known and respected dermatologist, speak on what he knows best—the skin.
I quickly marched out of the room after his lecture so I could ask him a question about skin and its relation to diet. I was expecting the usual response given by physicians, even dermatologists, that there is no connection between diet and the quality of the skin.
To my surprise Dr. Rubin’s eyes lit up and he told me to buy The Clear Skin Diet book. It proves that there is a connection. The book is well-researched and I highly recommend it. I purchased it immediately, but did not read it. When I stumbled across the book a year later, I started to thumb through it and decided to delve into it after reading the introduction and chapter titles. It is an amazing book! I have recommended it to so many people, but no one has actually read it. After reading it three times, I understand why its not high on anyone’s “to read” list. It is fairly technical and not exactly bed-time reading. However, the information found inside is invaluable.
I decided to give everyone the Cliff Note version in several of my posts. I will discuss the connection between diet and acne, but also address diet, skin, and general health as revealed in The Clear Skin Diet. Through scientific evidence it proves that: We look like what we eat.
