Youthfulness is not something bought from a surgeon or over a cosmetics counter. "Healthy Living: Staying Young" teaches us that through simple changes in our diet we can (among other things) make our skin supple and blemish-free and have glossy, healthy hair and sparkling eyes. Moreover, by applying natural preparations to our skin and hair, we can give ourselves even more of a healthy, youthful glow. Throughout the book are two running themes - 'inside out' (recipes for health, vitality and beauty) and 'outside in' (natural treatments to be applied when we need a beauty boost). In chapter one we discover how diet and the health of the body affect how we look and feel. Chapter two presents the rejuvenating benefits of more than 200 foods. In chapter three the author takes more than 70 common problems associated with our skin, hair, nails, lips and eyes, and shows how nutritional principles can help overcome them. In chapter four 100 delicious food recipes and 50 treatment recipes are brought together to make this a fully interactive guide to natural rejuvenation. The book is rounded off with practical advice on the importance of relaxation in any beauty regime.
