Based on over 14 years of dermatology practice, this exceptional approach is the subject of her new book, “SkinFood, The Ultimate Nutritional Guide to Healthy Skin” published by Piatkus in June 2023. Whether you want to tackle acne, troublesome skin conditions or simply achieve radiant skin, Dr Thivi is the experts’ go-to.
