Description

Your All-Inclusive Ticket into the Real World of Beauty

Most people think that beauty revolves around all those things that we can see in the mirror. But the fact is that beauty isn't some superficial pursuit. In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz explain how beauty is really about your health and happiness. Busting the myths about how we view ourselves, they take a scientific, informative, and entertaining look at how the three levels of beauty work together to form a complete, and authentic YOU:

  • Looking Beautiful: Your appearance influences your health and self-esteem; here, the docs will tell you how you can look the way you want.
  • Feeling Beautiful: The docs will tell you how to improve your energy levels, beat back your life-altering aches and pains, and help you come to grips with some of life's toughest stresses.
  • Being Beautiful: By improving your relationships with your loved ones as well as with others, you'll be well on your way to finding true happiness.

With their usual candor and honesty, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz break down the mechanics of beauty and explain how little adjustments in your routine can help you become a happier, healthier person. Navigating the tricky but exciting terrain of today's beauty industry, they reveal how different foods, vitamins, creams, gels, and injections can really boost your looks. They'll also take a close look at chronic pain, mood swings, low energy, and financial stresses. And they'll dive into the science of building relationships, finding happiness, and using spirituality to help you define your own levels of true beauty.

    I felt that this book was just TOO MUCH! It seemed like such a hodgepodge of tons and tons of information, that I'm not even sure how much of it will stay with me. My other problem is that very little of the information provided was actually new to me. Let me break it down for you:1. too much sun in bad for your skin;2. drink lots of water;3. using a hairdryer/curling iron/straightner all the time will cause damage to your hair;4. you should be flossing;5. you need to eat regular meals so that you won't feel like you're starving;6. exercise is a good thing;7. smoking is bad for you;I think you get the general idea here.The book is full of drawings that look like they belong in a middle-school health textbook from the 1950s, and the so called "humor" used throughout the book, made me feel like the author was making fun of me - not a good thing.YOU (etc. etc.) is not all bad though. I did find the information on human biology and evolution to be quite interesting. The authors also went to great lengths to explain things such as the functions of our glands, the reasons behind headaches, and why you may be feeling less energetic these days. My favorite parts of the book were the "Safari Secrets: Lessons from the Animal Kingdom". There were lots of little tidbits on everything from the way animals see the world to the way elephants lose and replace their teeth. Again, no new news to me, but I still enjoyed the way the authors related the animal information to information about humans.Overall, YOU Being Beautiful: An Owner's Manual to Inner and Outer Beauty just wasn't what I thought it would be. It is indeed very much like a health textbook, and not at all about things like make-up, hairstyles/colors, or dressing better. If you keep that in mind, you won't be disapointed.
