Skin Sobering: Throw Out Your Lotions & Potions with Dr. Erin Tjam

Aug 16, 2023

Dr. Erin Tjam is a health scientist and professor, and she’s here with us today to give us some tough love about what we’ve been doing to our body’s largest organ – our skin. In her new book, Skin Sobering: 99% of Products Age and Harm Your Skin, Dr. Tjam and co-writer Dr. Ryuichi Utsugi break down why we’ve been mistreating our skin by relying on skincare products, how we’ve been deceived by the billion-dollar beauty industry, and what we can do to stop the damage we’re doing. Skin sobering is a natural and unique approach to keeping our skin at its healthiest and most vibrant. 

So tune in and join us as we dig deep into a skin treatment that Dr. Tjam says is better for your health, better for your appearance, better for your wallet, and better for the environment!
