ABOUT EAT BEAUTIFUL
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.
I am not really sure what is going on with this book. I know it has recipes to help your skin look good, but why are all the pictures of models? There is the standard pictures of food that looks classy, but then all the pictures are of women are with weird poses that look like they came straight from the runway. Also, why are there no guys? I am sure some guys want healthy looking skin too!
I did like the recipes throughout the book, and I will try making a lot of them because just looking at them had me hungry. There is a lot of info going on about what certain ingredients can do, and I did find it helpful, but I also feel like I could just look all that information up online.
Overall, I would not have bought this book myself, but if you like food and already look like a model, you might want to pick this book up.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
