The bulk of his book is then devoted to a clearly presented skin care regimen that involves oral and topical antioxidant therapy. On the oral front, he emphasizes eating antioxidant foods, such as cantaloupe and dark green leafy vegetables, and avoiding "bad carbohydrates" (high in the glycemic index) such as pasta, sugar, and pancakes. And if you want to look good for a big event within a few days he suggests eating "fish, fish and more fish."
On the topical level, he recommends nutritional skin products such as his DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) cream ("an instant anti-aging face-lift"), a product that can only be purchased at specific places, such as selected Nordstrom stores or www.Sephora.com. Perricone's tie-in with his personal line of "cosmeceuticals" makes the book feel a tad self-serving. (He even includes an index of where to buy his products.) However, most of his advice is based on solid research and common sense, which gives this celebrity doctor credibility as well as a huge following. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

“Dr. Perricone's years of clinical and laboratory research have resulted in technological breakthroughs. Powerful antioxidants are actually proving to rejuvenate wrinkled skin.” ―Harry G. Preuss, M.D., professor of medicine, Georgetown University
“Dr. Perricone brings science to the art of beauty. His breakthrough treatments are pivotal to the success of my artistry.” ―Maria Verel, celebrity makeup artist--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I breezed through the book the first night I bought it, bought two of his products soon thereafter (one product to firm around the eyes and another to firm the face), and didn't bother with the nutritional supplements (I thought the list was too long and there was no way I was going to figure out which ones were more helpful and the right amount of each to take, and when to take them throughout the day). Instead of rigorously following the diet, I just loosely tried to take his advice, drinking more water so I don't dry up and look like a prune, eating more fruit and veggies, eating more fish (especially salmon), and less red meat (though still stopping in McDonalds every now and then).
Two weeks later I was out with a fellow I had dated a few times and he said I looked particularly attractive that evening. I told him I had had my teeth whitened. He said, no, it's not that, it's my skin, something is beautiful and different about it, he didn't know what. Then I told him I had been trying something new and that it must work, though he was the first person to say anything. The following weekend, my mother told me I looked nice, contented - perhaps it was something else? Last week I took two days off from work and the first day a guy flirted with me in the bookstore and gave me his business card, then the next day I was hanging out in the park and a guy introduced himself to me and kept hanging around me 'til I made it clear I was going my own way, without him. That kind of attention in two days hadn't happened in a long time.Read more ›
That said. If one follows the instructions given regarding dietary changes and paying special attention to the food groups that are emphasize in one's diet, you will see the results. Drink plenty of water. Use the supplements suggested; use sun screen and exercise -- It works. Be consistent, be persistent, and give it some time - a little patience.
My only gripe is that one might be intimidated into thinking that one must use Perricone's products, which are outrageously expensive. That is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. However, I have found that with a little research, many of the products he talks about are offered by other manufactures for a fraction of Perricone's price. So, for example, Vitamin C Ester, DMAE and Alpha Lipoic Acid can be bought at fairly reasonable prices, certainly more reasonable than those offered by Perricone. And guess what? You can find substitutes in some of the same outlets that carry Perricone's products.
Further, there is no cost involved in cutting sugar out of your diet - and water is available in abundance to everyone. Just drink it. Exercise is cheep - go walk around the block a couple of time - or the park if you are near one. Meditate - enjoy your life and your joy will also be reflected in your skin. In all my years I never had had beautiful skin. I DO NOW - ask my friends who are all asking me how I did it. To some I try to explain - to the more skeptical ones I say, "read 'The Wrinkle Cure.'"
