The Clear Skin Cookbook

It's no surprise to you all that I'm a big believer in treating the skin from within and when I got the chance to review this book, I grabbed it with both hands. My skin has been acting up very badly, meaning I've gotten very bad break outs. Slowly going through this book, I think I've become more conscious on what I eat and what I buy in the supermarket. And like Caroline once said: "99% of what your face is showing comes from you stomach - everything that goes in you gut shows on your face". So without further ado, let's crack on...

The Clear Skin Cookbook* is written by Dale Pinnock who is a Medicinal Chef. This book is based on  discoveries and knowledge he gained because of his own struggles as a teenage boy with troubled skin. He started being interested when he read a book that said that "unless you look after what's going on inside, nothing will change on the outside". Lucky for us, he's made a nifty little book containing all we need to know about the road that leads to clear skin.

The first part of the book explains common skin conditions, what the skin does, how the skin ages, vital vitamins, 'magical' minerals, antioxidants and essential fats, which is really interesting and very useful to know. For example, explains what the mineral Zinc is and what it does for your skin/body. It also gives a few examples of foods and vegetables that are high in Zinc. The second part consists of recipes ranging from soups to desserts to sides to drinks. All recipes are very easy to follow, a short description of what it is and a list of benefits the ingredients in that particular dish give to your skin.

Now I haven't tried many recipes yet, but with all the knowledge this little book has given me, I now know what is good (and bad) for me. Because of the list of 'good' and 'helpful' ingredients, you can easily integrate them into your daily meals. I'm already making lists of foods I need to stock up on and what skin benefits these have. Clear skin, I'm coming for 'ya!

Do you believe in treating the skin from within?

  1. Oh I definetly agree that if you eat healthy your skin will look healthy as well! That book does sound interesting, especially the recipe part. Might need to purchase ;).

    1. It definitely is worth checking it out. Amazon has a few preview pages so you can get an idea of how it all looks. The book has quite a good deal at the moment. x

    2. I ordered it via bol.com and there it is only 10 euros or so including shipping costs (and it will be here next week). I also saw it on thebookdepository.com! X

    3. Yay! Let me know how you get on with it :-). x

  2. I believe as well: Feed your body what it needs and you can keep your strong bones and the glow of youth.

  4. I'm gonna buy this now, my skin has been horrendous this week, I think its from a mixture of exam stress, hormones and then not eating well, drinking too much alcohol at uni and just the student life. Cant wait to start getting sleep and completely detoxing! No alcohol and late nights for me!

    Thanks for this :) Love Em x


    1. Oh my, I can feel you - been there, done that. I'm sure as soon as you change your lifestyle a bit and take a moment to relax (for as much as you can) and cut out sugar from your diet the condition of your skin will change drastically! So glad I could help :-). x
