Skin Cleanse is an easy to read book utilizing the latest in health and nutrition findings; specifically, an holistic approach suggesting that issues with skin (as with health and weight) are most affected by diet. As such, the first half of the book is about eating the right foods and the second half contains natural ingredient recipes and solutions for a beauty regime. Those looking for more information on the dizzying array of skin care products or understanding their skin problems better will be disappointed - the book is about eschewing all prepackaged goods, from hair conditioner to lip balm, and more about using natural alternatives.Contents: The book lightly goes into the science of skin with a lighthearted and very brief discussion of the science (2-3 pages or so) and genetics. After that, the chunk of the book is about eating right - avoiding sugars, fried foods, processed foods - the usual. Almost all of this information can be found in great detail in most lifestyle diet books. Author Grigore lightly glosses over the particulars of fruits, vegetables, meats, etc. It pretty much boils down to eating lots of greens and avoiding inflammation through poor food choices or hidden allergies.The use of a food journal is stressed to help track which foods are causing the problem as well as identifying `hidden' issues - foods you weren't aware you ate too much of or at the wrong times. Sample journal pages are given to that end.Various beauty products, claims, etc. are not discussed. Instead, Grigore provides information on natural alternatives and pitches a few of her own products for you to buy as well.
I can't believe I'm saying this but this book has absolutely changed my skin...a lot. I have always had rosacea and very sensitive skin. I could go on and on with a lot of detail but I won't bore you with that. I have written other reviews on here for skincare items I tried. At the time, they seemed decent but always my skin would react and the good review I had just given would be meaningless. I have tried every single skincare program you can imagine, from the highest end products to dermatologist-recommended gentle cleansers and moisturizers. My skin might do okay for a little while but inevitably some ingredient would react on my skin and I'd have rosacea, or my face would feel sore or I would get acne breakouts...it seemed like something was always going on and none of it good. To get to the crux of things, I bought this book and read it from front to back. I followed the steps outlined and then I hit the store for products. It was so cool to walk past the skincare, beauty and makeup aisles and straight back to the grocery store/food aisles. Here is what I bought and now keep on my bathroom counter and I use them every day. This list is long but it's because I went wild at the grocery store and wanted to have some fun. I pick and choose which items to combine based on what my skin is doing that day so sometimes I feel I need a more oily cleanser and other times, I just want an oatmeal and aloe vera scrub wash. You can mix and match according to your skin's needs. So, here goes with the long, extensive list and photos. I also bought cute, little containers at Target and labeled things. They look better on the bathroom counter than boxes of baking soda and salt. Also, it is absolutely not necessary to buy all of this.
