Book Description

March 30 2006

Stress and anxiety can wreak havoc on skin, resulting in acne, eczema, dry patches, rosacea, loss of elasticity, and premature aging. But before opting for Botox injections, laser treatments, and harsh chemical peels, try a healthier approach. Susan Ciminelli, skin-care expert to the stars and owner of the New York City day spa that bears her name, believes that the skin is a mirror of one's internal environment. The right lotions and creams are just one piece of the puzzle: What you put into your body, and, most important, the foods you eat play vital roles in your skin's health and appearance.

The Ciminelli Solution approaches skin care from the inside out, combining recipes, exercise tips, and treatment suggestions in a seven-day program that brings the mind, body, and soul into balance, resulting in flawless skin. Susan's step-by-step, day-by-day cleansing program is designed to jump start a healthier way of living and eating, without deprivation. This isn't a strict, clinical regimen. Instead, Susan takes the spa approach, focusing on what you should give to your body, not what you think you should take away.

Susan shows how eating certain foods gives skin renewed vitality, beauty, and longevity, and explains what to eat -- and what foods to avoid -- to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion. In addition to flavorful recipes for dishes such as Wild Salmon Burgers, Herb-Roasted Chicken, and her famous Adzuki Bean Soup, Susan includes recipes for facial masks, scrubs, and peels using all-natural ingredients, like honey, pineapple, and olive oil.

The Ciminelli Solution will improve your quality of life by detoxifying your system, increasing energy, and ultimately giving you a radiant, glowing complexion.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works! July 12 2006
By T. Williams - Published on
I just completed her 7 day detox plan and I am amazed. I did it to help my skin. I have oily skin, some whiteheads and occasional acne. I have to admit after a few days I was not seeing much imporvement however by the 7th day my skin cleared up, had a glow and was a lot less oily. I even stopped wearing foundation and cover up.

Susan offers many good tips and I like how a lot of the masks and other skin products she recommends I can make at home using food from my fridge and pantry and get great results.

I gave it four stars because it can be a bit costly buying all the food, oils and supplements, however, it is worth it.

Another book I recommend is "You are What You Eat" by Gillian McKeith. It is an overall health book which coincides with a lot of what Susan recommends. It is another great reference if you are wanting to become more healthy.

All in all if you want healthy skin and body, buy the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!! July 7 2006
By Beaney - Published on
I love Susan Ciminelli! This book is easy and fun to read and really spells out a logical and simple approach to health and beauty. It totally makes sense that your outer beauty is a reflection of your inner health which Susan explains in a story of her own journey. I've been following just a few of the suggestions in the book and my skin has already improved in just a few days!!! I also followed a couple of the recipes in the book...everything is really simple and surprisingly delicious! Even more delicious is the fact that what I've been eating is making me even more gorgeous :) ha ha. Great book!!!

ps. After reading the book I was curious about Susan's skin products...they are out of this world!!! I got the algae deep cleanse, marine lotion, and superhydrating cream. I am NEVER using anything else! Bye bye la mer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Susan Ciminelli gives great advice Dec 7 2006
By Erika Muller - Published on
The book does give great advice and ways to give your skin what it needs. I think everyone should read this. I do recommend going on her website to take a look at it. I was actually surprised how pricey her treatments and products were. Choose products carefully and shop around by looking at ingredience that Susan told you about in her book. You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to get what you want for a more reasonable price. Overall the book itself is great. If you can afford her products on the website it is probably worth the splurge.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inside Out Approach to Skin Care Oct. 4 2006
By Jay K. - Published on
Ciminelli's book is subtitled "A 7-Day Plan for Radiant Skin", and it offers directions for skin care and cleansing, as well as recipes that she says will help detoxify your system and give your skin a chance to be its glowing best. The recipes are easy and good and don't require a truck load of ingredients to make. Some of the recipes included are: Watercress Salad with Pine Nuts and Roasted Shallots, Beet and Goat Cheese Salad, Tuscan Bean Soup, Asian Roasted Chicken and Red Snapper with Shallot-Herb Sauce, to name a few.

The author also includes tips for how to make masks and moisturizers, as well as advice on skin care through the changing seasons. There is a tiny section on skin care for men, too, but it's pretty slim.

The author also gives tips for skin care through the seasons and offers suggestions on how to use her recipes and suggestions for 7 days to see a real difference in your skin. Yoga is also mentioned as an aid to her beauty regimen, and several poses are explained and encouraged.

I liked this book and would recommend it if you want a back to nature approach to skin care.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing different, nothing new June 26 2007
By Tinkerbell - Published on
There is nothing to learn from this book. NO new concept here.
She talks about detoxification and acidity of the body.
It reminds me of the Fat Flush book, by Ann Louise Gittleman, but this one is really good.

The book has very large margins, so the reading material is not that much, and in addition to that, half of the book
is about recipes, which are for ex: "Millet Casserole with Tempeh and Arame Seaweed"..Please !!!
"Mashed Celery Root"....."Eggplant Tofu Roliatini".....

Also there are some masks recipes for the face like avocado and lemon juice, pineapple pulp mask, etc, but this is not new.

Better buy Dr Perricone's book if you want to have a great skin.
Also "Eating for Beauty' by David Wolfe is a great book.
