Food and Recipes to Nourish Your Skin from the Inside Out
by Wendy Rowe
Care for your body from the inside out with this cookbook that highlights ingredients and recipes designed to make your skin glow.
After more than 20 years of experience as a makeup artist and beauty consultant, Wendy Rowe’s approach is uncomplicated and holistic. In Eat Beautiful, she details how specific ingredients feed your skin, offering breakdowns of the vitamins and nutrients they provide. They include:
· Pomegranate: The Elixir of Youth packed with Vitamin C, which stimulates collagen production to keep skin looking taut, young, and radiant.
· Spinach: The Free-Radical Fighter whose iron moves your blood, helping to repair your skin cells.
· Chili Peppers: The Circulation Booster famous for its capsaicin, which reduces blood pressure and improves circulation by encouraging blood vessels to relax and dilate, therefore acting as an anti-inflammatory.
· Natural Red Wine: The Youth Potion featuring a powerful anti-ageing antioxidant that slows the grown of acne-causing bacteria and fights disease-causing free radicals.
Rowe’s recipes showcase these essential foods to help target specific skin problems and alleviate common complaints. She even provides specific advice for what to incorporate or avoid depending on skin type.
Here, too, are suggestions on how to pamper yourself with recipes for homemade masks, scrubs, mists, cleansers, and toners, as well as an informative section for troubleshooting those confidence-sapping skin problems. Organized into the four seasons, you can dip in and out of this stunning cookbook, or follow it as a plan. Either way, it ensures beautiful, radiant skin all year round.
"Eat Beautiful" by Wendy Rowe is a beautiful book. Simply put. It is broken down into sections for every season, which makes this book so wonderfully organized. You can gain some much useful knowledge and information in a short time from reading one recipe on how to better take care of your body and skin. Some of the ingredients are a little far fetched, but with time, I can see that this will become a lifestyle change for better skin and an over all healthier person! This is a must book for anyone who wants to learn how to better take care of their body and skin. It is worth every single penny! I highly recommend this book not only for its education, but for its beauty! I give this 5/5 stars and was not required to write a favorable review by the publishers.
