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.

Dr. Jessica Wu definitely makes reading her book a breeze by keeping the audience engaged and offering some savvy tips.

About two years ago I chose to really turn my life around and start to exercise, eat a well balanced and nutritionally dense diet, and overall just take care of myself.

I got this book because before I decided to turn my life around, I was breaking out very frequently, and often had cystic acne or painful pimples all over my face, which started since I was about 14 (I'm almost 20 now). Not only was this a real confidence killer but it was also painful. I've read in many places (years ago) that diet has nothing to do with skin health and that it's best to treat breakouts with medication. Wrong, and wrong (well mostly). When I turned 16 I had visited my second dermatologist (the first was a money vacuum and very rude). He had recommended I go on Doxycycline and try a topical treatment along with it. Although my face cleared up very quickly and I had become fairly more confident with myself, I had found myself dependent on the medication to keep myself clear, which was ridiculous because who the heck at 16 wants to take an antibiotic a day for a long period of time? Anyways, a year in (when I turned 17), I started to become greatly intrigued by nutrition and health (which is when I also found this book). I decided to go to my dermatologist for one last time (really nice guy though, not to discredit him) and he wanted to put me on Accutane. I signed the form but something told me I should not do it. I didn't. I went home and read about the medication and went on forums for countless hours. I didn't want to be destructive to my health anymore (needless to say I never went back to the dermatologist). I picked up this book and wow was it great!

As a physician, I'm always interested in reading books by other doctors. Dr. Jessica Wu is a prominent celebrity dermatologist based in Beverly Hills. I've seen her on several television programs, and thought I'd pick up this book. Dr. Wu basically gives a very detailed description of how you can look younger, healthier, and improve your skin by changing what you eat. She explains the glycemic index, and how eating foods too high in sugar can result in inflammation, leading to acne, dry skin, and wrinkles. Throughout the book she includes celebrity stories, and how certain celebs have improved their complexion and appearance by following certain dietary guidelines.

This book is complete, well-written, entertaining, and chock-full of useful information with a scientific basis. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and am going to rethink how I eat as I continue to get older.

If you enjoy this book, I recommend that you consider 7 Years Younger: The Revolutionary 7-Week Anti-Aging Plan, a recent best-seller by the editors of Good Housekeeping. It's an information-packed reference full of tips to look younger, be healthier, and reduce aging. It's very easy to read, and a great resource.

I also recommend Dr. Jennifer Ashton's Your Body Beautiful: Clockstopping Secrets to Staying Healthy, Strong, and Sexy in Your 30s, 40s, and Beyond. It's a great guide for my women patients to be healthier, look better, and reduce their risk of age-related medical problems. Very well-written, scientifically and medically supported information.
