Skincare Guru Kate Somerville Launches New Book

Celebrity facialist Kate Somerville recently launched the book Complexion Perfection! (Hay House, 2010), a practical how-to guide to getting clear, radiant skin regardless of age, ethnicity, skin type, or concern. In the book, Somerville discusses simple strategies for achieving a clear complexion and helps readers understand cutting-edge treatments, technologies, and ingredients. My favorite part of the book is the section on how diet and lifestyle impact the skin. Did you know that almonds provide a very high degree of antioxidant protection, that blueberries fight inflammation at the cellular level, and that spinach helps protect against skin aging? Somerville also says that tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene, which can help reduce the risk of skin cancer, and even cooler is she says that eating a sauce made by simmering tomatoes in olive oil has been shown to protect the skin from sunburns, about the same amount as using a sunblock with an SPF of two or three. Interesting!
