A Cute, Practical Guide Packed with Useful, Straightforward Information for All!
In this day and age, women are expected to have a killer full-time job, time to hang out with friends and family, a successful fitness regime, and oh yeah, glowing skin. According to just about every traditional media source, women have never been more into skincare, and the craze shows no signs of abating. So it’s no surprise that in these stressful times, we’ve turned to skincare not only for hygienic purposes, but as a form of self-care and belonging.
However, with more products on the market than ever, the beauty industry can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming and confusing. Do I need a toner? Is it best to use organic products? Should I try Gwyneth’s bee sting therapy? Skin Deep answers your burning questions and delves into the specifics of all these new treatments and trends—in a way that feels informative and fun!
This practical guide makes the material easily understandable for everyone from ultimate multi-step skin gurus to someone venturing out for their first facial. In Chapter 1, you'll start off learning the essentials (think: product layering and “do I really need that vitamin C serum?”), while later on you'll explore special occasion procedures, body creams, and SPF. Plus, you'll learn how to read product labels like an expert and which “classics” are here to stay (say “hello” to your grandma’s favorite cold cream).
Gift it to that friend who already has too many face masks, or as a treat for yourself—it’ll make a nice addition to any book shelf or coffee table. So go ahead, indulge.
