As the largest organ in the body, skin can benefit from the same nutrition we get from foods that have a positive effect on our heart and other major organs. The Healthy Skin Diet is a guide to help readers understand possible connections between their skin and their diet at any age.
From psoriasis, acne and PCOS, to dermatitis, eczema and hives, Geraldine Georgeou explains skin conditions and what this means for you when it comes to nutrition, complete with real-life case studies from Geraldine’s own practice. The book is also full of practical ways to help protect your skin from free radicals caused by sun exposure, as well as methods to improve the integrity of your skin, hair and nails by harnessing the natural potential of B vitamins, biotin and vitamin A from your diet.
In the recipe section of the book, Geraldine applies her scientific research to the plate, with dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast dishes range from sweet potato halloumi hash with fried eggs to banana nut protein pancakes and spinach, mushroom and ricotta omelette . Lunch options are just as delicious with recipes for Thai beef noodle salad, chicken teriyaki poke bowl and summer pea, mint and goat’s cheese tartine . When it comes to dinner, Geraldine offers fabulous al fresco dining options with her lamb skewers with pomegranate tabbouleh, as well as comforting recipes such as lentil shepherd’s pie with cheesy cauliflower crust, plus the Sunday roast staple is sorted with Geraldine’s dukkah roast chicken with root vegetable crumble .
Geraldine Georgeou’s The Healthy Skin Diet is your health journey to better, glowing skin.
