We are so excited to welcome Rakhi Roy, MS, RD, LDN to the Nutritional Aesthetics® Alliance’s Advisory Board! We have been searching for a dietitian for the Board, who not only shares our passion for advancing an integrative approach to healthy skin, but also who has a deep connection and understanding of how food and digestion affect the skin. Rakhi certainly fit that bill!

About Rakhi Roy, MS, RD, LDN:

Rakhi is an actress-turned Registered Dietitian who holds a Bachelor’s in Anthropology and Theatre, and a Master’s in Dietetics & Nutrition. Her own skin struggles with eczema on- and off-camera led to her passion to help others with chronic skin conditions, find food freedom, and support their skin from within through an integrative approach.

Rakhi believes that there is no one diet that fits all. She helps guide her clients on how to reintroduce foods back in safely instead of focusing on long-term food eliminations. Rakhi also writes, educates, and speaks for various health online outlets in the dietary & nutrition health community. She has been featured on Healthline.com and the National Eczema Association.

Rakhi’s past work includes corporate wellness, Food Network & Cooking Channel SOBE WFF Festival, consulting as a clinical dietitian in VA long-term care, the Department of Health, Miami Children’s Hospital, eating disorders, and detox substance abuse patients in behavioral health psychiatric hospitals.

Rakhi Roy, Registered Dietitian joins the Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance's Advisory BoardRakhi currently sees eczema, psoriasis, and TSW (Topical Steroid Withdrawal) clients via phone and video conference as a licensed Dietitian and internationally as a nutrition coach.

We love Rakhi’s story, and we are honored to welcome her to our Advisory Board!

As we do with all our Advisory Board members, we asked Rakhi to share why she wanted to be part of the Nutritional Aesthetics® Alliance:

The Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance:

What excites you the most about The Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance?

Rakhi Roy:

Skin health is so much more than just what we put on our skin topically but also what we put in our body internally. It’s so rare to see both modalities integrated into one platform so I love that the NAA does that.

The NAA:

How has Nutritional Aesthetics® (integrating nutrition and lifestyle changes with skincare and self-care) impacted your practice and/or work?

Rakhi Roy:

Being a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist, my wheelhouse of practice is in nutrition and gut health, so I love to collaborate with aestheticians to help serve my clients holistically. I learn something from my aesthetician colleagues every time. In turn, I teach them about nutrition, supplements, and even the psychological relationship one has with food can impact our overall health. Knowledge is power when it’s shared.

The NAA:

Complete the sentence: “For optimal skin health, I wish people would do more of ___________________, and less of ___________________.”

Rakhi Roy:

For optimal skin health, I wish people would adopt mindful eating practices everyday: something as simple as eating out in nature, slowing down to chew your food, drinking enough water, including at least 2 colors on your plate, and less stress eating.

We are so grateful to have Rakhi Roy on our Advisory Board!

We already have a webinar planned–stay tuned for that!
