Scott-Vincent Borba Offers Skin-Friendly Superfoods in COOKING YOUR WAY TO GORGEOUS
Top celebrity esthetician Scott-Vincent Borba is a pioneer in the nutraceutical field and an ongoing beauty expert for multiple syndicated mediums including Extra!, QVC, and E! News, as well as The Rachael Ray Show and Good Day LA. Yet as a teen he suffered terrible cystic acne, a case of rosacea, and was overweight in all the wrong places. Ironically, despite his insecurities, he fell into a successful career as a product development and marketing specialist in the health and beauty industry. While helping care for his father who was diagnosed with prostate challenges and pancreatic cancer, Borba discovered how nutraceuticals could help heal the body, as well as the skin.
With the help of product specialists, he began researching how combining topical ingredients with ingestible ingredients could achieve radiant health-and skin-and his BORBA line of products was born. Not only did his own skin transform, he has helped some of the top models and actors achieve flawless, glowing, and healthier skin. His BORBA line of nutraceutical products, supplements, and waters are now sold in 300 luxury stores throughout the country; 1,000 nutritional stores; Walgreens; and on HSN. He has received coverage in People, US Weekly, OK!, Cosmopolitan, Elle, InStyle, Prevention, the New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.You are what you eat. It's an expression everyone has heard in relation to one's waistline, but it also holds true for the complexion. In Cooking Your Way to Gorgeous: Skin-Friendly Superfoods, Age-Reversing Recipes, and Fabulous Homemade Facials (HCI - July-- $14.95), skin-care expert to the stars Scott-Vincent Borba shares his philosophy that outer beauty often begins on the inside: When you feed your skin what it needs on the inside, you banish problem areas and regenerate healthier, younger-looking skin. In the quest for a radiant, lit-from-within-glow, skin is often overwhelmed with endless creams and serums; however, what we put in our body is an integral part of skin health and maintenance.
"What we ingest, what we use on our skin and what ingredients are in our products must work in synergy to have the optimum effects," Scott-Vincent explains. "When you eat nourishing foods and then apply products with those same key nutrients, you're boosting the ingredients' power and therefore the results are seen twice as fast!"
A pioneer in the super food arena, Scott-Vincent recognizes the healing power of ingredients and their benefits, both internally and externally. From years battling cystic acne and helping Hollywood's elite red-carpet ready, Borba reveals the most powerful anti-aging foods for glowing skin, serving up a wealth of delicious skin-friendly recipes plus make-it-yourself facials and scrubs from items you probably already have in your fridge or pantry. Whether your skin problem is wrinkles, pimples, brown spots, or blackheads, Scott-Vincent Borba reveals hundreds of simple and effective techniques plus natural home remedies that are just as effective as an overpriced cream or lotion. His natural-ingredients recipe for exfoliating is wonderful for stimulating cellular turnover and smoothing skin's texture. To create a natural face scrub, he suggests heading to the fridge and picking up some greens:
"Take a handful of kale and mince it finely. Mix this in a bowl with mint extract and plain gelatin or pectin," Scott-Vincent advises. "Kale will gently slough off the dull, dead skin, while the mint opens the pores and the pectin helps the mixture to adhere. Skin will be left smooth and radiant!"
