About this episode
Our skin is the largest organ in the human body, and it acts as a barrier to protect internal organs and cells from external elements. And just like other organs, our skin needs a diverse range of nutrients to stay healthy, with emerging research suggesting the potential role of plant-based foods in the promotion and maintenance of the health of our skin.
In this episode, we ask dietitian Geraldine Georgeou about the science behind diet and skin health. She covers bioactives, oxidation, inflammation – and much more!
