I’ve been a big believer in beauty from the inside out over the last year and a half. Even more so lately, I’ve been paying more attention to how foods affect the way my skin looks (not to mention the way they make me feel). That’s not to say I am giving up my beloved wine, cheese and bread any time soon. But on yesterday’s trip to Whole Foods, I loaded up on papaya, berries, greens, basil, yogurt and honey. And I have Clear Skin Detox Diet to thank for the inspiration.
This straightforward, well-written book is actually a joy to read. Clear Skin Detox Diet covers nutrition plans, recipes and recommendations of foods for specific skin issues. I was thrilled to get advice for skin ailments like acne, premature aging, eczema, and more. Needless to say, I will be shooting for half an avocado a day from now on. And when that nasty pimple appears… garlic to the rescue with its powerful antibacterial properties. Just alone, author Lauren Talbot’s “Build a Better Salad” page is now one of my kitchen staples.
Also, I have to mention this shopping list was also amazingly influential in changing the way I shop for groceries.

Too bad I can’t enter. Then again, I already eat super healthy (or I hope so at least) and I’m pretty sure I have a better diet than the average person. And yet my skin is faaaaar from perfect or clear. So I’m thinking it’s more of a stress/hormone thing for me rather than a food thing.
