The part on the diet is very similar to the Clean & Lean system by James Duigan. What I really enjoyed is the explanation of the lies cosmetic companies tell us to sell overpriced stuff, the phases that help achieving a great skin (no promises of miracles here), a list of ingredients that are good and where to find them and an how to do an analysis + possible solutions (the magic pot does not exist). Very easy to read, not patronising (unlike Paula's Choice). A must have if you do not want to be ripped off when purchasing products and if you want to buy stuff that work (it tells you what to look for an what it does for your skin).

It was refreshing to read a beauty book not promoting one magic ingredient or product. Dr. Denese offers the most current scientific knowledge on beauty in a very readable style. I couldn't put the book down and kept taking notes on things I wanted to try. Highly recommended for anyone interested in anti aging or beauty.
The book is quite an eye opener. First and foremost, she does not pad it with filler. She gives you the true scoop on Growth Hormones, middle age hormones, menopausal skin, botox, fake botox - you name it, she gives you the hard hitting truth to products and services we all fall prey to.
She provides information for every type of skin - normal, dry, combination, oily, etc. From the lightest to the darkest complexion, she chronicles every problem and its solution.
Dr. Denese also provides some interesting facts on diets and stress and the impact to our skin. Some things are basic, but some of the information regarding blood insulin regulation was new to me.
Dr. Denese chronicles her own mistakes in caring for her skin, as well as patients who come to her clinic.
I truly believe this is the best written and most up to date book on skin care right now. And I believe her line of skin care can work for everyone.
Her complete skin care line is sold on QVC and on various internet sites.
I highly recommend her products, this book and the PBS Special DVD which is also sold on Amazon.
The next day I bought one for myself - I saw a dramatic difference in the appearance and texture of my skin, in one week - without her products.
I began taking only the fish oil (because vitamins are so $$$ - and finding the ones she reccommends isn't easy) noticed a major difference in my overall skin moisture levels and the soft manageable quality to my hair.
I then purchased her products on QVC - and the results are amazing. For me, i had acne as kid an thought that it would simply disappear as I matured, not so - i had dry skin and clogged pores and outbreaks around my mouth. The dermatologist would give me a series of antibiotics, but after that, it was going right back to "delicate" products that clogged my pores, his advice paled to the information I received in this book. (and for a lot less money)
For people with problem skin, this book should be required reading. It explains skin from the inside out - and isn't merely about "feel good products". Dr Denese is honest, helpful and most of all her scientific approach is (continuosly) effective.
She has a six step process: 1) cleansing 2) exfoliating 3) skin-stimulating, 4) skin building, 5) skin sealing, 6) sunscreen.
However, the book seems to encourage using Dr. Denese's products. She lists a few competitor's products, but the competitor's products she lists are more expensive than her own products. So any reader committed to following Dr. Denese's system would logically buy Dr. Denese's products because her products are exactly what she recommends and cheaper than the listed alternatives. Because of that, it seems that the book is geared to help Dr. Denese sell her product line. The author is very bright; it is a very soft sell, but a very logical sell to any person committed to improving their skin condition.
FYI, Dr. Denese's products are available on eBay.
Overall, I thought it was a good book. I am a man and skin care is relatively new to me. It is a huge step for me to start wearing sunscreen on a daily basis, but I am committed to it since I now realize how much harm the sun does to our skin.
