Tired of wasting hundreds of dollars on expensive wrinkle creams, drying lotions, and zit-zappers that just don't work? Well listen up, ladies. To really get gorgeous, you've got to change the way you feed your face.
Cosmetics companies, women's magazines--heck, even most doctors--will swear that food doesn't affect the skin. But celebrity dermatologist Dr. Jessica Wu knows that's just not true. After years spent battling her own pimple-prone, "problem" skin (not to mention caring for some of Hollywood's most famous faces), she's learned that what you eat has everything to do with the condition of your complexion.
Packed with patient testimonials, un-retouched before and after photos, and celebrity anecdotes from stars like Katherine Heigl, Maria Bello, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Lisa Ling, FEED YOUR FACE is an easy-to-follow, 28-day diet plan that will help you banish blemishes, wipe out wrinkles, shed unwanted pounds, and generally feel better--in your clothes and in your skin. Along the way, Dr. Wu will dish the dirt on her journey from Harvard Medical School to the glamorous Hollywood Hills, while offering realistic, practical beauty and diet advice for women of all ages.

I found this book a bit disappointing. I changed my diet recently and got better skin and a leaner, younger look from following a diet close to the one in Kris Carr's "Crazy Sexy Diet." Wu's book advocates a diet more like what I ate BEFORE I changed things up. I know there's lots of debate about nutrition issues--some people advocate eating animal products and cooked food and oats and wheat, others going totally gluten-free, vegan and raw--and I have no training to go into the medical issues and no leg to stand on on the ethical issues.

BUT, if you simply want beautiful skin and a lithe body in less than a month, eat 80% to 100% raw, high alkaline, zero gluten, zero wheat, zero sugar, no booze, 100% organic (and not Wholefoods "organic", more like Integral Yoga organic, checking to make sure there's no processed anything in any of your food.)
I'm a foodie, and I'm not saying everyone always has to get that radical. Lots of times I choose delicious foods over looking my very best! But a book giving you a short-term plan for looking your very best through diet should provide the best diet for truly glowing, luminous skin. I love dairy and I see how all the great probiotics in yogurt make it a "superfood"--but going from eating whole grains, organic salmon, organic probiotic yogurt to raw vegan made a super-radical difference in my skin. It glowed!

Jessica Wu's diet will not make you look lovelier as fast as a diet like Kris Carr's. And the book is a lot less inspiring and entertaining. I recommend Carr's "Crazy Sexy Diet," "The Raw Revolution Diet" (by Cherie Soria, Brenda Davis, Vesanto Melina) and "Eating for Beauty" by David Wolfe over this book.

Its a nice book but might look at many times like Dr.Wu is overly praising herself! Talks of sensible eating...no magic here...the usual more fruits/veggies/grains routine.
