Feed Your Face

The 28-day plan for younger, smoother skin and a beautiful body

By Jessica Wu

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

Dermatologist to Hollywood's A-list Dr Jessica Wu demonstrates how to achieve younger, smoother, healthier skin without the need for skincare products, prescriptions or surgery.

Each year the average woman spends hundreds of pounds on skincare products, only to be disappointed when the hype outplays the performance. Empowering women to break this cycle, Dr Jessica Wu shares the secrets to transforming your skin from the inside out.
Feed Your Face is an easy-to-use 28-day diet plan that will help you banish blemishes, wipe out wrinkles, shed unwanted pounds and generally feel better - in your clothes and in your skin. Along the way, you will learn how to separate skincare fact from fiction, as Dr Wu explains why:
* A slice of pizza and a glass of Cabernet can prevent an impending sunburn
* Milk doesn't always do a body good - dairy products are a major cause of acne
* Almonds can ward off grey hairs
Packed with patient testimonials, entertaining illustrations and celebrity anecdotes from stars including Katherine Heigl, Feed Your Face is as entertaining as it is informative.

Robert O. Young
Authors:
Robert O. Young

Millions of people around the world suffer from diabetes, and the figure is climbing - in the next decade cases are expected to triple in Europe. What this groundbreaking book proposes is that this serious and debilitating disease is entirely preventable. For those already suffering, this plan can reduce or even eliminate the need for insulin or oral medication of any kind. If you want to prevent or reverse diabetes, you should follow the guidelines in THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES. Dr Robert Young and his wife, Shelley, reveal a revolutionary diet and lifestyle program that unlocks the secrets of pH balance and of food as a healer, restorer, balancer and life-giver. They illustrate that the single most important measurement of your health is the pH of your blood and tissues - in fact, the entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment and chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue. THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES is a proven program that explains which foods to eat, which foods can be combined safely, which should be eaten alone, which should be avoided altogether.
