Body care and eco-consciousness need not be mutually exclusive, according to Deborah Burnes.
In Part I of this timely book, she explains the historical roots of the search for beauty, and how it has led to a $60 billion cosmetics industry that misleads and confuses consumers on everything from product effectiveness to toxicity.
In Part II, Burnes details options for buying natural and organic products in a range of budgets, with each graded on a “good,” “better,” or “best” scale in terms of chemical content and overall health impact.
Part III discusses the positive effects chemical-free products have on overall health, and how those effects are expressed in the appearance of our skin.
Part IV contains a wealth of facts, tips, and shortcuts to help consumers experience living green and enhancing personal beauty. Written in an engaging style but based in science, Look Great, Live Green offers a fresh perspective on living an eco-friendly, body-friendly, beauty-friendly lifestyle.
