are a 60 year old Grandmother or a 15 year old Boy.
Clear, flawless skin is in. We drop more money on skin
care then just about any other beauty item out there.
It is our first line of defense when people see us and
hey, let's be real here, it covers our entire body! The
search for the perfect complexion has taken people
to some pretty odd places and they do some pretty
crazy things. I watched a special not long ago where
people let Fish eat the dead skin off of them and not
only did they do this willingly, they paid big money to do
it. I do not care what my problem was, getting in a tub
with ANY FISH, even a minnow would only bring Jaws
flashbacks and I would be screaming like a little girl
before my toe ever hit the water. To make matters
worse I get no sympathy from the guys in my life
and I am pretty sure my son would be over my shoulder
humming the Jaws theme song. Now I know this skin
eating critters are little but isn't there a fish that can
get into your body and do some damage? I am not going
to tell where he gets in but let me tell you it is not only
gross but has to be painful. No thanks I will pass on
seen out there. I have seen creams as much as $600
bucks for a bottle I would call a tester of the stuff I use.
You have got to be kidding me. I could buy a laptop for
that price and find a cheaper brand that works just as well
on line with the lap top and pay for that and still come in
under 600.00 bucks! Do people think normal consumers
are insane? I do not care if you are a trump, who would
pay that for skin cream? ( SIGH) I know, I know, people
do, other wise it wouldn't be out there. I have always been
very careful with my skin for my family goes both ways
and there is no middle ground. We either have really really
bad skin or really really good. Since the moment I knew
what a pimple was I was all over my complexion and
have been lucky, though I still would never pay 600
bucks! My son is at the same crossroads and he is also
just as ridged on skin care.
In my quest to find items that are great for your skin
and keep you in the Oh, La La you look fabulous column
and not the hello there Quasimoto side I found a neat
little book that says chuck that cream and eat right and
you just won't have to worry.
You mean I can eat and still look good?
You mean I can use my skin as an excuse to eat?
You mean yummy goodness I stick in my tummy can
be good for the rest of me?
You mean I can feed my son some healthy foods under the
guise that it will be great for his complexion?
Yes Mam', all that is true!
Sign me up, I am in! Well, I am at least going to give it
a whirl. Let me tell you the book is darling. It has cute
little Quotes all through it that keep you trucking along
and are sure to bring a smile to your face and inspire you
too and what really got me was some of these Recipes
are dang tasty! Who cares if they are good for me, the
made my taste buds do a jig! Some of the recipes were things
I ate anyways and didn't know it was good for me, um, er,
rephrase that. I have been telling everyone for years that I
only eat Whipped Chocolate because it is good for my
skin, really, do you think I would resort to eating chocolate
for any other reason! I hope you guys bought that! Anyways,
like I said, some I have been eating all along and some
are things I never would have thought to try but I am now
darn glad I did! Awesome goodness on a plate that my son
even went WOW Mom, good job!
A fruity French Toast! What's not to love?
Candied Pears, yum and double yum!
Spicy Tomato soup with a Pomegranate Tuna Sandwich to
go with it. Now I know you are drooling here! This
stuff is awesome! AND the book is packed with recipes
even better then the ones I just told you!
I love how the book is spelled out in an easy to follow
format that makes finding what you are looking for a snap.
It starts out with some useful tips and information and even
facts for those of you who need to see the proof when you
eat the pudding. Elizabeth TenHouten is the Author and she
knows her stuff for Beautiful skin has me convinced I can
chuck those messy creams and eat like a Queen. She offers
you a guide to healthy skin from start to finish and next time
you are tired and need a nap, point to the book and tell your
husband, hey, Elizabeth says I need my rest to look good for
you Honey and run to your bed before he thinks of a response!
