The Ultimate Guide to Smart BeautyBook - 2002
From tanning pills to oxygen in products, and from facial exercises to behind-the-scenes industry information, this new edition of The Beauty Bible covers it all. With 50 percent new material included, Paula Begoun's bible clears up the confusion and gives readers the information they need to have clear beautiful skin, look gorgeous and save money. Drawing on knowledge from her background as a makeup artist, her more than 20 years as a consumer reporter and the latest dermatological studies, Begoun spells out the best skin care routines for more than 15 skin types, gives detailed instructions on how to read a skin-care product's ingredient list, provides step-by-step lessons in makeup application and evaluates the latest research on laser surgery, acne medications, sun protection, wrinkle prevention and special skin problems. Begoun then sets the record straight on a multitude of urban legends and beauty myths, explains the differences between Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids, and reveals why "natural" products aren't necessarily better.
