Surely, a plant-based diet helps one have great skin. But also getting an appropriate amount of sunlight and Vitamin D is equally important. Most people in the northern U.S. are Vitamin-D-deficient and need much more time in the sun!
Barry, of course, you are right. Sunshine, sleep, hydration are all just as important as the diet itself!
also water water water!
Great vid as always. Keep it up!!
Do you brush your skin or use any exfoliants? I eat very close to 80-10-10, but I just like the feel of coconut oil or a natural lotion, especially on legs. Yes, you are radiant!
I was expecting a before and after picture, oh well! When I tell my daughters about this kind of diet they ask me then how come theire friends that eat fast food all the time have such great skin. My mother used to cook very healthy but I was the only out of 4 children that had really bad akne, not sure if it has to do with gene and skin types.
I loved this video! Your skin really does look radiant, unlike almost anyone else's. I find that reason alone to be enough to do 80-10-10.
I also love your cute pink top in this video. Where did you buy it from?
Thank you very much for your kind comments! I bought my pink top from a large market in Bangkok.
I would rather take vitamins the sun ages people we all know that.
It has to do with your hormones changing. It is hereditary on how severe it can be, I had really bad acne and there is no diet that will help change it but you can outgrow it as I did. I had to take a nasty prescription to control it called acutane but it kicks acne in the ass.
Nice nice! 😉 I want my skin to glow!
You eat more vegetables then fruits?? Do you do coffee enema too???
You are so beautiful!
beautiful skin and tan! im subscribing:)
I'm loving eating raw foods but I'm having some skin issues every night itching ( I didn't want to take antibotics due to hands and arms seems to be abit infected so I have been trying to have lots of foods to help me though it has got alittle bit better but it seems to be ongoing)I am itching, the doctors says I have contact dermatitis though I'm not sure what I am having a reaction to.
Im trying to use only vegan things for my body etc but washing liquid is difficult with citric acid, washing up gloves and ecover seems to anoy my skin . Im trying to have more oils in my lifestyle but I still have dry skin, my legs get so tired they feel I just don't want to move them at all when walking sometimes. I have bad pms, I dont seem to get on with eating lots of bananas, dates cost lots and I think I've got to my limit nearly money for my month, I got very lightheaded and dizzy this month I'm not sure why. I'm at a lost 🙁
If you are suffering from contact dermatitis then putting anything on your skin including oils is far from ideal (even if you have dry skin). I think it would be well worth you speaking to your doctor and asking for a test to try and determine what is actually causing the reaction. Take a look at this link: http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Contact-Dermatitis-Patch-Testing.htm
It basically tells you about tests that can be done to try and understand what you may be sensitive/allergic to. In the mean time, you can always begin looking into this yourself by using a simple process of elimination. Start by keeping a written log every day and removing certain foods, substances or clothing items from coming into contact with your skin and see how you go. Write down what you have stopped coming into contact with your skin and how your skin is each day (if it is better/worse or the same). Not putting anything on your skin including oils would be a good start and not something you really want to keep doing.
With regards to your PMS, there can be many influencing factors and not just diet, including getting enough good quality sleep (8 hours every night) drinking plenty of clean water-hydration (you need to be going to the toilet 8-12 per day) Stress levels, exercise levels etc.
Drinking things like coffee and tea are not helpful and of course neither is alcohol.
With regards to bananas not everyone on this diet does well on bananas, but in saying that have you tried them with soft leafy greens in a smoothie? This can help with blood sugar issues which can cause feelings like dizziness (often experienced by people in transition) so it is definitely something you can try. Also, you may need to supplement chromium picolinate. Mangos, persimmons, figs are some other options you can try, just make sure you are getting enough calories.
I do not know if you have ever had one done but getting a full blood test is always a good idea, just to check there are no underlying issues that may be compromising your health.
Hope this helps,
Inna, I follow a fruit-based diet because vegetables do not supply enough calories and energy for the body. No enema in any shape or form, just a clean diet and healthy lifestyle.
Axel, if people eat a fast food diet and their skin is looking well today, it does not mean that it will look well tomorrow, unfortunately.
Hi, thank you and sorry for not responding, we receive a lot of comments on our videos and sometimes I cannot respond right away. I don’t brush my skin, however well aware about the benefits of dry brushing. No problem with putting some coconut oil. When we are in locations where the water is hard, I also apply some coconut oil, because the water really dries my skin. If the water is soft, I never have to think about oils.
Evil, actually this is incorrect. The sun is natural to our body, whilst vitamins are not. No need to be afraid of the sun if you follow a healthy, plant-based diet. However, if you live in a cold climate, vitamins may be an option.
I loved watching this video. You say you had dry skin which is the total opposite of mine. I have oily and acne skin, and the acne is all over my body too. I have had good improvement skin kicking dairy, wheat, gluten, meat and animal products out of my diet 3 years ago. I really want to clear this and the scaring and be able to wear what I want without feeling insecure about it. Have you seen people improve their acne and scarring with this diet?
Im really at my wits end.
Thank you, Yulia! I’m surprised to see my message got posted. When I clicked post, there was a notice saying it was declined–hence my second message. Anyway, always nice to get a personal response!
Well if you say so. My wife is a light skinned Asian and she even believes with yellow skin it will age her. I know it will because all the white girls that go bathe in the sun all the time look older than their age.
By the way when my dad was in the nave he got terrible sun burns now he has to have red spots burned off his face to not allow his melanoma to spread deeper in his skin. Why do you want to harm people with stuff that has been proven by many doctors?
We promote healthy sun exposure,which does not include getting sunburn. I fail to see how this is harmful?
I have very light skin and freckle with just 30 min of sun in the summer here in Texas. My doctor even told me after seeing a few spots he was concerned with on my shoulders he said I’m glad you don’t get out in the sun. Melanoma is the biggest cancer killer. I wont do any outdoor activity in the summer without at least sp 30 sunscreen.

But I still avoid as much sun as I can when I am active in the summer stay in the shade as much as possible I understand your point.
It boils down to skin type. Pale skin gets burned more easily and is more susceptible to skin cancer. There’s nothing healthy about porcelain skin or bronzed skin. Those are so frivolous compared to a healthy mind and lifestyle. The bottom line is to know yourself and determine what works best for you. .
While watching one of Dara Dubinet’s videos, she mentioned that she is finding that she needs less or no sunscreen as a result of her plant based raw food diet. She went on to explain that eating this way helps defend the skin against the harmful rays of the sun. I think that may be some food for thought…no pun intended. 😉
you got that classic raw food eater glow!pretty.
fantastic video! thank you:-)
you look wonderful!
Your skin is gorgeous and you have great cheek bones!
I have always been blessed with great clear skin even before I went raw/vegan but I did have keratosis pelaris which are skin bumps all over and they all went away! Sooo cool. I love this way of life for me. Wish I knew from the get go. 🙂
I was wondering where this video was taken at? The house, trees, and grass all look so gorgeous!
Its a park in Bangkok near Khlong Toei Market
Awesome! Thanks, Yulia! 🙂
Thanks Yulia 🙂 How long will it take for Acne to go away?
It all depends on your own body and how long it needs to cleanse and heal. Tomatoes and citrus fruit can cause acne as well, so try excluding certain foods from your diet and see if this helps.
Just wondering, does anyone here ever eat oranges and lemons with the skin?
It’s not, unless you have Anglo-Saxon heritage. The Anglo-Saxon skin is unique in the world because England is unique in the world for its extremely low UV levels. Why do you think it’s only Anglo-Saxons who develop melanoma here in Australia and not other races like Italians, Greeks, Lebanese, Arabs & other people with olive skin?
Your skin GLOWS and that top is beautiful on you. My skin gets better and better as my diet improves. You are soooo RIGHT!
Congrats to you Sherri, yes fruits and veg do makes us glow. Thanks very much for your nice comment!
Thank you for all the videos, that have help myself and so many others. If I feel like ‘cheating’, I just come here and in a few minutes, I don’t want to cheat anymore.
Go on Dexs!
I got a zit thing that doesnt go away, been there almost a year.. Gonna try raw
Юля, если в одном из видео вы расскажете о здоровье волос, было бы классно.
Я думал Путин
That’s it! I am going raw. Been on fruits only for breakfast since 2008.
But from now on I am going for lunch and dinner.
it is only the demo
I will turn 74 May 17, 2015. I have been eating a lot of sweets and cooked
food. I have recently noticed my skin is very dry and wrinkled on my
forearms and now on my face at the cheek area and chin area.. I know many
women who are 85 and older and do not have these wrinkles. I went on a
25-day water only fast with Loren Lockman in Costa Rica via telephone
conference each morning. I feel I did a lot of good for myself but then
after about a month I begn eating sweets and cooked food. (I did have more
wrinkles on my arms after the fast due to losing 20 pounds. ) I now weigh
160 and am 5’5″ tall, having lost 1 inch from I believe dehydration. i do
also drink a lot of coffee to keep going as I own my own secretarial
business and work full time. Will my skin likely imporove and be younger
Thank you for any help you can give me.
