Episode 87: Skincare from the Inside Out

with Dr. Keira Barr

Today we’re talking about taking care of our skin, but not necessarily in the traditional methods that are often discussed such as washing techniques, exfoliation, moisturizing or using creams and oils. My guest today, Dr. Keira Barr, will share her insight on how other aspects of our lives – diet, lifestyle and stress – can impact the health of our skin.

Dr. Keira Barr believes that true health begins when we feel comfortable in our skin and that we all have the potential to experience it for ourselves. She is a dual-board certified Dermatologist and an internationally recognized author, leader, speaker and educator in her field. As the Chief Wellness Officer of Resilient Health Institute (RHI) she has integrated functional and lifestyle medicine with the traditional to redefine the delivery of skincare.
