Dr. Skotnicki is a leading expert on skin irritants. Through her lectures, book and articles, Dr. Skotnicki has been encouraging society to rethink its obsession with overwashing. She asserts that excess scrubbing, particularly with soaps and detergents, is compromising the body’s inherent barrier and microbial protections by literally washing them down the drain. By the time women are done putting makeup on their face there are close to 500+ ingredients are on their face and some of their interactions can cause a breakout or a skin irritant. And since the Beauty industry isn’t regulated so many of the products we use on our skin are not healthy for certain skin types. This is one of the reasons she wrote her book, Beyond Soap: The Real Truth About What You Are Doing to Your Skin and How to Fix It for a Beautiful, Healthy Glow. She is also a busy Mom of three boys.
