Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Deserving of a better subtitle, dermatologist-to-the-stars Wu's first book is packed with helpful tips. Dense but highly readable, the tome is split into four sections: a look at our largest organ, the skin; a guide to skin disorders accompanied by Wu's insights into foods both helpful and harmful for treating them; four weeks' worth of menu suggestions; and a quickie primer to homemade skincare products. Wu also includes a guide to Botox and other small-scale surgical interventions. The author is refreshingly honest and approachable. She enjoys having a tan, for instance, and doesn't see the point in telling her patients to wear long sleeves outdoors at any hour of the day. Though urging readers to eat organic, minimally-processed food is hardly a breakthrough, Wu's case for doing so is well-explained and easy to implement. The calm, sensible approach she takes here will be appreciated by anyone in search of perfect-or at least better-skin. Photos.

Review

"The key to looking younger - as I have learned from Dr. Wu - isn't copious amounts of Botox or even plastic surgery, it's a diet that will improve your skin from the inside out, as her Feed Your Face Diet has done for me. My skin looks radiant, smooth, and ten years younger."
- Maria Bello, actress

This book has good information regarding foods to boost collagen and elastin production, and how to keep from sabotaging your complexion by eating foods that will cause breakouts and other skin conditions...but, it's very poorly organized. There are interjections with pages of unrelated information and chapters repeat paragraphs, verbatim, from prior chapters. There is a sample "diet" in the back that helps a person create a meal plan that incorporates all of the foods she recommends, but it seems to be somewhat tailored to asian cuisine. I also felt that it really needed a summary of what foods provide what benefit so it would be easier to modify your own taste interests to incorporate her suggestions. The most I got from this book was that the superfoods are: red and orange veggies and almonds, and that the skin produces Vitamin D through a chemical reaction with the sun's rays (UVB or UVA..? don't recall which she said). She also pushes a lot of products by brand name which she admits she's been paid to research...which makes me assume she has a bias towards certain products regardless of whether they are truly the best. She also promotes her own practice and says that botox and other procedures are good to do and that she's basically the best.

I just didn't get a good feeling that I could believe everything because of her personal interest in selling/promoting her products and services, but there were some good tidbits of information about nutrients in food and the benefits, and descriptions of skin and hair problems and which nutrient would fix it (like why some people's eye brows get so thin on the edges, and why eyes get puffy), so I didn't feel like it was a total waste of money. You just have to suffer through a bunch to get those good tidbits.

My sister gave me this book because I spend a lot of money on skin care products and she's always trying to get me to eat better. I was skeptical, but willing to give it a try. Well, I'm so glad she insisted that I read it. It's truly changed my life and the way i think about food and my skin. After reading the book I'm much more careful about what I put in my body because I know it's going to come out on my skin, and let me tell you, I've never looked or felt better. In the past month since i've been following the feed your face advice, I've lost 7 pounds and I have more energy than ever. And my skin, which used to break out around that time of the month, doesn't freak out around my period any more. It was really fun and easy to read --especially the celebrity diaries and stories about Dr. Wu's patients. My favorite part was the chapter on what to order at restaurants, since my job requires a lot of entertaining, and now I know what to order (and drink) when eating out. I also liked that each chapter has a summary so you can flip to the back to get the most important points. Also, a lot of Dr. Wu's advice is stuff I never heard of before, so I didn't feel like I'd "been there done that." This is a MUST READ if you care about your skin!! and your health.

I took accutane 3 times and was on antibiotics for 45 years for my acne. I read this book and got off both gluten and dairy. My face is now completely clear. The advice on using topical zinc oxide also works. In addition i lost six pounds without trying My only regret is not knowing this information sooner.

When I heard about this book I thought this is perfect. We spend so much money on external products to keep our faces looking young and beautiful. This book teaches you what to eat to make your face look beautiful from the inside out. Not only do you look more beautiful but your body feels healthy.

I was so happy how this book covered the different problems one can have with their skin, and what to eat to improve it. So what ever you are trying to improve this book as the solution. It is detailed and teaches you what you need to know, and what a FUN read. It also gives you sample menus and what to eat at popular restaurants.

Dr. Jessica Wu has covered all the bases and made it fun. This is a must read for anyone looking to improve their skin quality along with making your body feel wonderful.

Thank You Dr. Jessica Wu.

This book is very informative. I thought that the book would be boring and dry but it wasn't. Jessica Wu does a great job with introducing various foods, recipes, and even what to eat at common restaurants in an easy to understand manner. The beginning of the books discusses how she first got into dermatology and how she treated her skin when she was younger and even the skin problems she had. The, Dr. Wu discusses the science of skin and its various layers. After that, she goes into depth about the different ways food can affect your skin. For example, there is a section on acne, on skin conditions like eczema and rosacea, and a section about preventing wrinkles and keeping your skin elastic. Additionally, there is a section hair and how to keep it strong and youthful.

After all these sections, she delves in a 28 day diet and throws in a few easy and simple recipes. In the center of the book, there are some before and after photos of some of the patients who tried her 28 day diet.

Lastly, Dr. Wu discusses what you can order at restaurants that wont destroy your skin.

Overall, the book was informative and helpful. The end of each chapter has a table that summarizes what foods that chapter recommends so you don't have to go through the chapter again to find out which foods to eat.

The book lost a star because in some parts, it was quite repetitive.

More About the Author

Jessica Wu, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and an Assistant Clinical Professor at USC Medical School, is trusted by some of Hollywood's most famous faces, including big-screen beauties like Katherine Heigl and Maria Bello. Now, with her breakthrough new book, FEED YOUR FACE, she's changing the way women everywhere think about caring for their skin--no needles, creams, or prescriptions required.

After graduating from Harvard Medical School and opening her practice in Los Angeles, it became clear to Dr. Wu that--contrary to popular opinion--certain foods had a major effect on the look and feel of her patients' skin. Combining her own findings with the latest research, she developed the FEED YOUR FACE Diet, a practical, easy-to-use, 28-day diet plan that will banish blemishes, wipe out wrinkles, and help you get back in your skinny jeans.

When she's not writing, researching (or raiding someone's refrigerator), Dr. Wu is dishing up advice as the Skin and Beauty Expert on EverydayHealth.com and on her daily e-Newsletter (with more than 250,000 loyal readers). She is a frequent medical expert on The Doctors, and has appeared on Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight, E! Entertainment Television, FOX News, and EXTRA. Dr. Wu is also a go-to beauty expert for editors at the New York Times, People, Elle, O: The Oprah Magazine, Glamour, Good Housekeeping, Marie Claire, Women's Health, and Women's Wear Daily.
