Skin aging and acne: What you should do
As a listener to this show, you’ve probably heard of the gut microbiome. But did you know that your skin has its own microbiome?
Recent evidence suggests that these microbiomes are vital for our skin health. So, what should we do? Which foods make an impact?
And if we want our skin to look healthier, how about those collagen supplements that many of you have asked us about?
In today’s episode, our guest is Dr. Justine Kluk, a consultant dermatologist with a specialist interest in acne. Justine is a member of the British Association of Dermatologists, the Royal Society of Medicine, and the Royal College of Physicians.
ZOE’s Chief Scientist Dr. Sarah Berry also joins as a cohost to explore these ideas.
