Beauty Pure and Simple
The Ayurvedic Approach to Beautiful Skin
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1590309200
"Beauty Pure and Simple provides an all-natural, holistic view of skincare and beauty drawn from both the latest in skincare science and from Ayurveda, a system of wellness that has been practiced for thousands of years on the Indian subcontinent. In this practical guide, Kristen Ma, who is both a popular esthetician and an Ayurvedic practitioner, provides a skincare and beauty regimen that is easy to use, safe, and effective. Ma gives a clear and readable explanation of skin biology and the basics of Ayurveda as it applies to skin health, helps readers determine their true skin type according to their specific dosha (physical constitution according to Ayurvedic principles), and then recommends individualized regimens with easy-to-obtain products. She also covers such topics as the influence of diet on skin, dealing with skin changes that come with aging, protecting skin from the sun and pollutants, the effect of stress on skin and how to cope with it, and how to treat common problems such as dark circles under the eyes, breakouts, acne, eczema, rosacea, puffy eyes, hyperpigmentation, and many others. Ma is a persuasive advocate for chemical-free products and biodegradable or recyclable packaging, and she alerts readers to the harmful ingredients that are ubiquitous in most products and treatments on the market and recommends alternatives.

No More Dirty Looks
The Truth About Your Beauty Products--and the Ultimate Guide to Safe and Clean Cosmetics
Paperback      ISBN: 0738213969
It started with a harmless quest for perfect wash-and-go hair. Every girl wants it, and Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt finally found it in a fancy salon treatment. They were thrilled—until they discovered that the magic ingredient was formaldehyde. Shocked, O’Connor and Spunt left no bottle unturned. If it went on their body (and thus, was absorbed into their skin and bloodstream), they researched it. As it turns out, many of those unpronounceable ingredients in your self-tanner and leave-in conditioner are not regulated and the “natural” on your face wash doesn’t mean what you think it does. Now, with the help of top scientists, dermatologists, and makeup artists, the authors share their compelling findings and the easy way to detoxify your beauty regimen. No More Dirty Looks also reveals the safest, most effective products on the market and time-tested home recipes. Finally, you don’t need to sacrifice health for beauty—because coming clean is the best look yet.
