Overview

Our skin is the one organ that most accurately reflects our inner health and wellbeing and yet it is rarely understood. Alexandra Soveral, one of the world’s most in-demand facialists, lifts the lid on everything you need to know—what the skin is, how it works, what affects it and, above all, how to make it as healthy as possible from the inside out and from the outside in. Perfect Skin will give you expert nutrition advice and skin-friendly recipes; organic solutions to allergies and flare-ups; and all-natural skin-care products that you can find in your kitchen. It will also uncover the myths, lies and pseudoscientific claims we are fed by brands. It's time to discover the organic way to healthy, glowing skin from the beauty industry's best-kept secret.
