About this event

We hope you’ve been using your sunscreen, but skin health is so much more than sun protection! Join Amit Solway, founder of Naturally On A High, and Dr. Jason Solway, Santa Barbara area Dermatologist, to learn how what we eat impacts how our skin looks and feels, how it ages, and also helps determine whether we develop certain skin conditions throughout life.

Dr. Solway starts with the science: you’ll hear about one of the landmark studies that brought whole food plant-based eating into the medical literature. He’ll also talk about the role certain vitamins and nutrients play in our skin’s health and longevity. His wife, Amit, will share which foods to incorporate into your diet to harness the full power of these vitamins and nutrients, and show us some easy recipes to match! Class participants will also have a chance to ask our plant-based pros questions through chat or video.

You’ll leave this class with a better understanding of how foods affect our complexion and skin condition, how to prepare foods that promote skin health, and the latest science in nutrition and the prevention and reversal of skin aging from the folks that do the research. And, following the presentation, we’ll send attendees an email with links to the recipes, so you can try at home!
