First Book to Address my Skin Type

  • Dec 6, 2002
For years I've read all those articles in popular magazines about skin type--unfortunately the prototypes touted in the glossy pages never quite profiled my skin type--I am of Italian American descent, have dark hair and eyes and tan easily with burning only if I am not careful. Dr.Perricone's book--bless him--is the first to present a diet plan for people with my skin type--and it works!

On a more general level, the book features other diets for other skin types and ethnicities. While I can only speak for myself and my own specific needs, I would imagine that his suggestions stand as correct for he seemed to know exactly what my skin needed in terms of nourishment. Yes, his diet does strictly adhere to 'Zone-like' principles--but so what? It works in terms of better looking skin and in over all good health. Another fantastic bonus benefit? Weight loss.

If you can afford them--check out his products. I was lucky enough to receive a few of them last Christmas--and they are wonderful. I was using a popular Shea Butter face cream prior to trying the Perricone grouping, and this was causing black heads and oil build-up. Not so with Dr. Perricone's products. They glide on and offer protection in both dry and cold weather. Along with his food guidelines, they are promoted at the famous Camelback Spa in Phoenix Arizona---used in their facial treatments. As for the supplements, you don't have to buy his--the basic three are packaged in a similar health food supplement blend that you can buy cheaply in your health food store.
His ideas make good sense and contrary to the comments of another reviewer, I think his face looks pretty darn good. Lines in your face also reflect your personality---they aren't synonomous with poor diet or skin care. If you are after a blank page look with absolutely no expression,never mind the diet or the supplements, go to your dermatologist for Botox injections.
I deducted a star for some of Perricone's obviously self-serving rhetoric.
