Internationally renowned dermatologist and research scientist Dr. Whitney Bowe presents, for the first time, the connection between a healthy gut and radiant, clear skin, with a 21-day program to maximize skin health and beauty.
Every year, nearly eighty million Americans will consult their doctors about their skin. In fact, skin disorders beat out anxiety, depression, back pain, and diabetes as the number one reason Americans see their doctors. Unfortunately, however, the vast majority will receive only a surface-level treatment, leaving the underlying conditions at the root of their skin issues unresolved. Skin doesn’t lie; it reflects overall health in unimaginable ways.
In The Beauty of Dirty Skin, internationally renowned dermatologist and scientist Dr. Whitney Bowe shows readers that skin health is much more than skin deep. As a pioneering researcher on the cutting edge of the gut-brain-skin axis, she explains how the spectrum of skin disorders—from stubborn acne and rosacea to psoriasis, eczema, and premature wrinkling—are manifestations of irregularities rooted in the gut. Lasers, scalpels, creams, and prescription pads alone will not guarantee the consistently healthy, glowing skin we all seek. Instead, Dr. Bowe focuses on the microbiome — where trillions of microbes “speak” to your skin via the brain—and highlights the connection between sleep, stress, diet, gastrointestinal health, and the health of your skin.
With simple explanations of the science, do-it-yourself practical skincare strategies, and a life-changing twenty-one-day program, The Beauty of Dirty Skin is your road map to great skin from the inside out and the outside in.

As Dr. Bowe eloquently reveals in The Beauty of Dirty Skin, healthy skin is a manifestation of a healthy gut. Leading scientific research now confirms that the multitude of microbes living within our digestive systems plays a pivotal role in determining the health of our largest organ, the skin. And while consumers expend hundreds of millions of dollars on topical approaches for better skin, The Beauty of Dirty Skin directly challenges this approach with a straightforward plan to create beauty and radiance from the inside out.
