The information in Naked Skin Nutrition reimagines beauty by merging the best of Eastern and Western medicine- and helping us all to understand that beauty is not just one dimensional but a three-dimensional reflection of our overall health. I am excited to see this information become more widespread so that beauty becomes so much more - than just skin deep.

Skin mast cells are activated by stress, and in turn they also produce stress hormones and inflammatory factors. This could lead to a vicious cycle of stress-induced inflammatory events.
