Along with new photography and product recommendations, the updated version of the original book has new sections on different skin colours, conditions and industry updates. It’s a book that covers all manner of beauty concerns: nails, waxing, teenage beauty, chemotherapy beauty, beauty and the careerwoman, and the etiquette of talking (or not) to your hairdresser… you name it, she’s got it.The author covers skin types, skin problems, skincare routines, where we should be spending the bulk of our skincare budget, skincare myths, and so much more.
My near perfect treat it as bad as you want skin is rebelling and talking to me and showing me on some days that it’s clearly not happy. While acid exfoliation can sound daunting, we’re all familiar with toning, which is why Hirons originally coined the phrase “acid toning” to allow readers to easily identify where it goes in their routine. No nonsense skincare advice from Caroline Hirons (aesthetician/blogger) who shares her knowledge about the elements of a good skincare routine in this guide, it’s written for a UK audience mainly as it references many specific branded products.When it comes to explaining the industry’s love affair with “clean” products, she points out that “the use of the words ‘natural’, ‘clean’ and ‘green’ is completely unregulated. I already have to read the product ingredient list, as my other half is allergic to nuts – so I might as well try to figure out something semi useful from it. I love skincare and I'm still trying to find the right products that are compatible with my skin type.

Full of sensible information on skincare,what to use at various ages,what not to use at various ages. I don’t really understand very much about skincare and I think this book would be so helpful and useful about learning what my skin needs and how best to take care of my skin.

We’ll certainly be keeping Hirons’s recommendations of Medik8’s hyr8 serum, Beauty Pie’s butter cleanser and the alpha beta peel pads from Dr Dennis Gross in our skincare arsenal, too.

She has been in retail for 34 years, working as a consultant to brands in the beauty industry for over ten years, advising brands on the route into market, where they should be selling and why.
