The Young Skin Diet is the product of author Michelle Lee’s survey of thousands of peer-reviewed nutrition studies, which she investigated to understand the relationship between the foods we eat and the youthfulness and quality of our skin.
The Young Skin Diet sets forth the results of Ms. Lee’s research, delineating six principles for healthy eating to support our skin; practical steps to make healthy eating sustainable in our lives; and meal plans, more than 75 recipes and skin treatments shown to be effective at delivering proper nutrition to our skin. The Young Skin Diet provides beautiful and inspiring full-color photographs of recipes, allowing readers to understand the simplicity of ingredients and how prepared dishes should appear. The photos further demonstrate that eating healthy can be delicious and enjoyable.
The Young Skin Diet plan is directed at reducing skin inflammation, boosting collagen and elastin levels, enhancing tone and consistency, improving smoothness and ensuring suppleness to the touch. All of which is designed to produce young-looking, radiant skin.
At its core, the guiding philosophy of The Young Skin Diet is that, for a diet plan to be helpful, it must be grounded in science; offer actionable advice; generate results; and be sustainable as a part of everyday life. The Young Skin Diet is engineered with this philosophy in mind, translating cutting-edge scientific research into results-oriented action plans that are easily integrated into even the busiest schedules.

This unique combination of analytical muscle and culinary artistry makes The Young Skin Diet both edifying to read and gratifying to follow.
