    What you need to know about your skin but never learned.

    This book truly is a beauty bible. I've had the book for about a year and finally decided to read it after checking out Begoun's other book, 'Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me'. The part of the book that I'm most grateful for is the skincare portion. I've had oily/acne prone skin for over 15 years. I'm now 29 years old, and have found the closest thing to a cure- BHA. This book goes in depth and explains why BHA and exfoliation are essential for those with acne, and I've already seen a slight improvement in my skin since following Paula's regimen. I just wish the word could get out to more people.

    Great Book!

    This is a great book for anyone who wants to start taking better care of their skin but have no idea where to start. This book really does discuss everything and more you need to know about skincare. The author is frank about some of these so-called 'miracle products.' With the author's help you will learn what you can and can't change about your skin along with saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars on skincare products throughout your lifetime. You won't regret purchasing this book.
