Transcript for Cardi B opens up about her skin condition
Now to superstar cardi B's struggle with her skin. The grammy winning rapper turning to followers on social media for help with her acne. Dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe is going to join us in just a moment but first Lara has more on cardi B. Hello again, Lara. Hey, rob. So cardi B is crowdsourcing her skin care on social media in a series of Twitter posts. She revealed she's been battling breakouts and dry Quinn for three months and asking her fans for their recommendations. Reporter: This morning cardi B saying when it comes to her acne she doesn't like it like that. Reporter: Turning to Twitter asking her followers for help in a string of tweets writing I've been breaking out lately and my face is extremely dry. What are some good products for a little blackout, breakouts and dry skin on your face posting this picture of her cheek. Yardi dealing with acne for years speaking out in this video on Instagram from 2016. Coming to my Instagram talking about, oh, my god, let go of the little pimples on your forehead. You are too pretty so I'm too pretty to be a normal person? Reporter: Yardi grateful for the tips from her fans across the world and announces she'll given update on her progress in two weeks. Okurrr. That's what I'm talking about. That's what we're talking about and yard tweeted overnight she's getting a facial today, everyone. And she's going to try a face mask that her mom recommended. She says she'll keep us posted, robin. I'm sure that she will, Lara. Thank you. Joining us more with board certified dermatologist and dear friend of our program, Dr. Whitney Bowe. How are you doing? Good morning. I'm doing great. I'm doing great. Always good to see you. So how common is this? And what typically causes it? Yes, so adult acne is incredibly common and, you know, acne is more than skin deep so to get to the root of the issue we have to think about the gut/brain skin connection. When I see an acne patient in my office we're not just talking about what you're putting on your skin, we take a deep dive into diet and even stress levels, things like sleep, exercise, they all matter. And fans have tweeted we even heard her mom offering some suggestions having some home remedy, over-the-counter products, some of her followers are suggesting. What do you make of all that? So some of the fans recommended lemon juice on the skin so, robin, you know for the lemon juice, put it in the water, not on your skin, right? Others recommended facial steaming. Seems like she'll try that. Steaming your face in my opinion is a hard no. Although some of her fans did recommend some over the counter moisturizers, those are good. A lot of people instinctively try to dry out their acne with astringent, toners but moisturizers are much better. Not enough but they're definitely a good start. And when it comes to food is there anything in our fridge that we should be aware of? Yeah. So milk surprisingly so many of my patients really struggle with dairy milk. Skim milk in particular so you want to avoid added sugars, refined carb bow hydrates but what's interesting when I have acne patients who switch off their dairy milk on to something like unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk it can make a really big difference and the studies support that as well. Someone just sent me a tweet saying they gave up milk nine years ago and haven't had an issue with acne since so there you go. All right. Dr. Bowe, always good to see you. Thank you as always. Appreciate it.
