Preface

Introduction

The 21st century beauty industry has launched a whole new stratosphere of high-tech skin care and treatments, all promising to rejuvenate, banish wrinkles and give you younger looking skin. Some of it works, to a degree, and some of it doesn't. But what will really give your wellbeing and skin the edge is using a mind and body approach to stay at your most healthy and relaxed. There is no wonder cream in the world that will cure you of tiredness, stress or obesity, but incorporating a few of our valuable tips into your life really could make the difference to both how you look and how you feel. We don't concentrate on advanced cosmeceuticals, but more on what nature, what you eat and good health routines can do in terms of your physical appearance, both for skin and body.

The makeup and skin care section is designed to give you a good basic knowledge of what products are actually for, and the best way to use them. Makeup is an important part of almost every woman's life, and knowing how to use it properly and to make the most of your looks is a big advantage and a confidence booster.

Relaxation is fundamental to how we look; beautiful, clear and healthy skin is a reflection of how you feel inside. Getting good-quality sleep and regular moments of tranquility in your life will allow you to shine on the inside and glow on the outside.

Perhaps most important is our section on exercise. We now know that it is so important to incorporate exercise into your life not only for longevity and health, but for a vitality that will show in your eyes, face and body. There is no better way to raise self-esteem and throw off clouds of anxiety than to exercise. Work hard to find a regime that you like, and watch the pounds disappear, see your body change to a shape that you'll love, and wait for the years to fall off your face.

However you choose to look after your skin, you will read that the most important thing you can do right now is to wear a sunscreen with an appropriate SPF (sun protection factor) for your skin type. Skin that has been overexposed to the sun not only runs the risk of severe damage, but looks and acts older than it is. It is never too soon to start using sunscreen to prevent sun damage, and thankfully, never too late to gain some benefits.

You will also find that what you eat and drink is a key player in the way that you look and feel. Fresh looks come from fresh food and water; smooth, soft and clear skin is a happy byproduct of keeping your hydration levels up and eating healthfully But we never say never! When it comes to eating and drinking, use moderation not starvation as your watchword, and you will reap the long-term beauty benefits over and over with our real solutions for real women.
