Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Celebrity, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jessica Wu knows that expensive personal care products don't automatically produce the radiant skin that we all want. She also knows that few of us can easily afford the high cost or physical pain that some "elite" treatments entail. Her Feed Your Face sets your beauty table with a 28-day diet plan that doesn't require needles, prescriptions, or cream, and with its help, you'll not only look better, you'll feel better.

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.

Library Journal
A board-certified dermatologist in Los Angeles, Wu (Univ. of Southern California Medical Sch.) is a frequent contributor to national TV shows and magazines. Her premise here is that one's diet affects the skin, and she uses profiles of her patients, which include celebrities, to illustrate how changing what one consumes can improve the skin's appearance. Divided into four parts, the book covers the skin's physiology; common ailments such as acne, sunburn, and wrinkles; the Feed Your Face diet; and make-at-home remedies and cosmetic procedures such as Botox, laser treatments, and chemical peels. Recaps at the end of chapters highlight the important messages, and there are sections on when to see your doctor, a Q&A, and a "Did You Know?" section. She also lists where to get the recommended foods and products. Wu also discusses her own struggles with maintaining healthy skin, how she identifies with her patients' insecurities, and her comfort level with her patients' decisions on choosing the diet or cosmetic procedures. VERDICT Recommended for those looking for a different approach to healthier skin.—Rebecca Raszewski, Lib. of the Health Sciences, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago
From the Publisher
"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

Read an Excerpt

“Maybe it's because women in L.A. are overly concerned with what they're eating, but when I opened my own dermatology practice, I started asking every patient to tell me about her diet. Over and over I heard variations on the same theme: "I know that my diet doesn't have an effect on my skin, but I seem to break out every time I eat [fill in the blank]." It didn't take long to notice some definite patterns and to realize I was on to something. Maybe food did affect the skin, despite what I had been taught in medical school? 

       The original version of the FEED YOUR FACE Diet was just a pile of papers held together with a binder clip. But before long, family, friends, and even my celebrity patients were clamoring for it. That’s because the results spoke for themselves: Skin looked smoother. Acne cleared. Rashes subsided. Even women who already had beautiful, blemish-free complexions swore that their skin looked more radiant than it had in years. Now you, too, can learn how to feed your face.”

    Thank you Dr. Wu!

    How great would it be if someone with genuine authority, impeccable education credentials, and years of professional experience, was actually willing to tell you the truth about looking radiant for less than $30? Pretty great, and lucky for us that is now readily available in "Feed Your Face." Full disclosure - I have been a patient of Dr. Wu's for almost 10 years (Dr. Wu is one of my favorite people, very kind, and she tells the truth in the most constructive fashion). "Feed Your Face" is a great mix of easy advice, a peek into celebrity food journals, and even a food guide taken directly from the menus of some popular restaurants. My favorite part is that Dr. Wu offers some simple basics on how your skin works with the choices you make. I was surprised to find dermatology such a page turner, before I knew it I was 90 pages in! In no time, you'll know better, which gives you the power to do better, and the results will make you look & feel better.
