Still being optimistic about a fountain of youth or a miracle cream? Stop reading now. Because the truth can be a shocker. And the truth is that to get beautiful skin, you need to do it from the inside out. Remember how your mom used to always remind you to take your vitamins and eat your vegetables? Mom knows best. Specific ingredients you consume make some maj differences for your skin, health and appearance. Specific foods target specific skin problems. Want to know the secrets to these recipes? How to get gorgeous glowing skin by adding certain veggies to your meals? Oh – and want all this in 1 book with dozens of yummy options?
Wendy Rowe, the author of Eat Beautiful, spent over 20 years as a makeup artist and beauty consultant. She “gets” it, ladies. She knows what we want. She also knows the easiest ways to get there – because ain’t no one got time to do a boot camp juicing cleanse with yoga on the side. Am I right? Wendy breaks it down in a very uncomplicated and holistic way to tell you quickly and simply how to “fix” any skin issues you have.
Need to repair skin cells? Spinach. And spinach the way it should be prepared – inside an almond chocolate milkshake! Would you like to stimulate collagen production? Silly question, right? Who doesn’t want a more taut, young and radiant complexion. Know what? Have a pomegranate spring salad. Done and done. Blood pressure been a tad high lately? Seeking solutions to reduce that and improve circulation? Spice up your meals with some chiles! Cheers to coconut water for a post-workout drink to get those electrolytes and hydration. But – no-no to coconut water from a carton. Must be in a refrigerated bottle (like milk) and it needs to be organic, according to Wendy. Did you know that?
Besides these essentials, you also get advice on what to add in or avoid depending on your skin type. Genius stuff here. Let’s not neglect the pampering part of this book. Homemade masks, scrubs, mists, toners – all to feel luxurious and look gorgeous. Luckily the cookbook part of Eat Beautiful is organized into sections for each season so it’s more convenient to plan your meals.
THIS. The 1 book to get beautiful, radiant skin – just from yummy food!
I received this book to review from Blogging for Books in exchange for this post, but all opinions are my own.
