Format: Paperback
I really did not like this book, I wanted to, because I am interested in health and nutrition, but this book was a disappointment. I did not think that there was a lot of substantial or new information.
Besides, no book titled Beautiful skin should have a recipe with Coca Cola in it, which due to its high sugar content obviously is in no way a beauty food.
Also many recipes have a meat/fruit combination which is absolutely not a good food combination, as fruit take about 30 minutes to digest and meats a whole lot longer.
Not worth the money for me.

Format: Paperback
I almost never get books about making my own beauty items as I feel, sadly, that I am a bit of a label and product whore. But, the only one who really loses in that quest is me and my pocketbook!! The recipe's I've tried so far, that Elizabeth has so specifically explained, have REALLY worked. Unbelievably so!! Better than my Lancome!! I WISH I had known about this book sooner as my skin has never looked so glowy and pore-less and my pocketbook is breathing a sigh of relief as over the counter beauty products are an over priced luxury in this economy. You would be foolish to spend another dime until you, at least, try and few of Miss Tenhouten's recommendations at home. This book is a miraculous secret that will be a number one best seller in no time....

Format: Paperback
Cook Well ~ Beautiful Skin, is a wonderful book that goes beyond just recipes. Sincerely written, it covers ideology around beauty and offers natural concoctions that are medicinal and detoxifying. The author, Elizabeth TenHouten, has tried and tested all of this and is truly passionate. Best of all the instructions are clear and simple. It is so motivating to use this book because it is very user-friendly. So many books are intimating and time consuming but I've covered more ground in this book then any other cook book. Also, as a vegetarian and someone with many food allergies, i have plenty to choose from.
Some of my favorites : Antioxidant trail mix: Delicious, I keep a bowl out for guests and its a quick fix for hunger.
Artichoke Delight / Hearts & Seeds : so good !
Hydrating body scrub: I have a new layer of glowing skin.

This book has something for everyone and is a great source book to keep in your kitchen, i highly recommend it!

I love this book...the author offers delicious and super easy recipes that are dedicated to improving your skin, hair, body and mind. The antioxidant beauty bytes teach you how to create your own all natural skin exfoliate, ultra soothing face masks, smoothing foot creams, facial toners and lots more. They were easy to create and I could see the results from the first use. The book is easy to read and follow and lots of fun too! It is the ultimate guide to self indulgence that makes your skin absolutely glow.

Im Teri Struck, Host of Beauty Now and I have interviewed over 80 authors of beauty books. This book makes the best gift for any health and beauty
addicts. This is filled with really easy to buy ingredients at your local grocery store. Elizabeth knows her stuff and makes it really easy for anyone to whip up
these amazing anti-aging recipes. Yummy too. Cheers Teri Struck, Host of Beauty Now

I would highly recommend this book! The "Pretty Poached Salmon" and "Delectable Duck" are to die for! What I enjoy most about this book is that it educates you on the importance of how antioxidants help protect the body against free radical damage. There is also a section on easy "at home" antioxidant-rich treatments (such as body scrubs and face masks) to help enhance your skin!

This book fulfills perfectly it's task - great, flavorful recipes that also do wonders for your skin. With a plethora of books out there that tackle this issue by restricting the fun and flavor of great food, Elizabeth's recipes actually make you want to eat it! Top stuff!
