Then, I started reading Dr. Fine's book. I got interested in her work after trying her IAMFINE clay face mask, and was floored. It was the only skin product that actually seemed to help my skin. But the game changer happened after this book. By understanding how the environment around me could be impacting how I feel and even the products that I was using to help me refine my skin could be potentially harming them because of the toxins in them was so insightful. I switched to products that aligned with the Beauty Code (esp from the advice found in chapter 9! Pure Products for Beauty) and after about 3 weeks of this protocol, my skin is back to where it was seven years ago! I'm in my mid twenties, and to have healthier skin than I've ever had before is amazing.
This book though, isn't just about skin (that was just my initial journey with this book). Dr. Fine takes an incredible, holistic view of beauty. She weaves in the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of health into an easy to digest book. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to better themselves through healthy life choices, and to just learn more about what your body needs in an increasingly toxic and chaotic world.
I liked how Dr. Fine included a discussion of epigenetics, which is a relatively new field exploring how our environment, diet, choices (things we can control) can turn on and off our genes. In other words, eating nutrient dense food and avoiding the myriad of environmental toxins abounding in our personal care products, can influence the activation of our genes. This is empowering news that can help "stack the deck" in our favor by making us less susceptible to diabetes, cancer, and other conditions.
Dr. Fine also espouses the benefits of juicing and how this is an efficient way to assimilate a lot of antioxidants. The author frequently appears to be addressing people who will say they don't have time to eat multiple servings of fruit or vegetables per day. Her book even outlines various programs to apply this information. For example, she preemptively recognizes the reluctance many will have in making an abrupt lifestyle change due to inherent psychological motivations and the gravitational pull of homeostasis. Subsequently, she has delineated "the minimalist" which is appealing because it shows you some quick, easy things any individual can implement.
In addition, if you like your information to be credible and empirically validated, then you will appreciate this book. Since the author is a physician, international speaker and scientist, she cites her sources and alludes to various scholarly publications. This is refreshing as there are numerous so-called "experts" who lack the academic degrees, peer review, and professional experience to speak authoritatively on their subject. I appreciated how this provided the reader with a plethora of references that can lead the reader to more analysis, if desired, Despite the author's academic pedigree and research background, Cracking the Beauty Code is easy to understand and contains very pragmatic ways to improve your health.
