In her new book, Beyond Soap, Dr. Sandy Skotnicki sheds new light on our understanding of skin and explains how aggressive cleansing rituals and modern-day beauty products are negatively impacting our bodies.
From eczema to dermatitis, Dr. Skotnicki reveals the compelling correlation between our modern-day hygiene practices and a global uptick in skin problems. She cites research indicating how frequent all-over washing and harsh cleansers play a role in predisposing kids to irritating skin conditions and atopy-related allergies.
Rather than slathering on soaps that disrupt the skin’s pH and bacterial properties, Dr. Skotnicki argues for a less-is-more approach that protects the body’s inherent barrier and microbial protections that assist with many of the body’s core functions including digestion, mood stabilization and immunity.
