According to Niyati Sharma, MD, quite a bit! On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, the plant-based dermatologist joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss the connection between the food on your plate and your skin.

The pair examine the relationship between nutrition and acne, dry skin, psoriasis, hair loss, wrinkles, and a host of other common conditions. Dr. Sharma also details how being overweight can increase your risk of being diagnosed with many of those ailments. 

And what should we be eating to stay young? Dr. Sharma will reveal her best and worst foods to keep your skin looking young and vibrant!

Plus, Chuck is joined by YouTube sensations Nina and Randa Nelson. The identical twins have gained a major following thanks to their fun videos and skin care tips. The California-based sisters have been vegan their entire lives and are the authors of The Clear Skin Diet. Their philosophy is simple: heal the body from the inside out by eliminating foods that are believed to be major causes of acne.

Among their many fans is Neal Barnard, M.D.

“Damage from acne is not just physical, but psychological, too,” Dr. Barnard said. “Nina and Randa are successfully teaching others how to overcome the physical and emotional challenges. These girls are true leaders.”

So put on your headphones and facial mask! You’re about to learn how a plant-based diet can help keep your skin looking young and fresh!
