In SkinFood, Dr. Thivi explores the powerful connection between nutrition, gut health, and the skin, with advice tailored to address common skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, healthy ageing, and psoriasis. She draws on both the latest scientific research and over 15 years of experience in dermatology.
With chapters on the role of sleep, the mind-skin connection (psychodermatology), how to curate a skincare routine that works, as well as medical/in-clinic treatment options too, this comprehensive guide is a fascinating read.

With over 45 vibrant, skin-loving recipes such as BeauTea Chai, Spiced Chickpea Salad and BeautyFood Granola with Cacao and Goji (pictured above), it’s a must-read for anyone who wants to unlock the transformative power of nutrition for their skin health.
