Anyone who likes to push party time into the early, or not so early, hours of the next morning will tell you: Having too much fun makes you look like shit. It doesn’t always happen overnight, but too often it does, especially when said night involves a little too much time spent imbibing substances and being generally rowdy and not enough devoted to sleep. There are plenty of reasons not to stay up acting like an animal that aren’t vanity-based (like the fact it will almost undoubtedly ruin the next day, and if you become a 24-hour party person, eventually, your entire life), but in my experience, vanity is always a good initial motivator.
Eat Beautiful: Food and Recipes to Nourish Your Skin from the Inside Out sounds awfully specific, but when it comes to your current state of health and wellness, or lack thereof, it’s all visible in the skin. Besides, any makeup artist will tell you: A nice, radiant complexions is everything. Wendy Rowe is one of them; the artistic consultant to Burberry Beauty who regularly works with Sienna Miller, Victoria Beckham and Suki Waterhouse is famed for “no-makeup makeup,” code for making people look like they have amazing skin.

As you probably know, good skin starts from the inside out, which is why this recipe book is a mix of concoctions to eat (she names cucumbers “the internal cleanser” and limes “the natural astringent”), ideas for homemade masks, scrubs, toners and cleansers and tips for getting your sugar fix the right way and detoxing when you need to. Most importantly, it focuses on striking a balance between keeping your life—and face—clean and having down and dirty fun.
