From Damage to Glow: The Skin Sobering Revolution and Benefits With Dr. Erin Yuet Tjam

Today I have Dr. Erin Yuet Tjam the author of Skin Sobering: 99% of Products Age and Harm Your Skin.

For over 35 years, Erin read, researched, and experimented about anything she could find on skin. Publishing a “skin-deep” book beats writing scientific articles that are lucky to get 50 readers. Erin would be happy if she could get all her kids and future grandkids to do skin sobering.

We talk about what is skin sobering (or skin fasting) and how you can get started, fixing your skin problems, and many more ways to take care of your skin without chemicals.
