Liz Earle Skin Secrets


What a beautiful book! I have been a follower of Liz Earle for years and read lots of her books and listened to her speak about skin care. Liz used to be a beauty editor and is passionate about educating people about their skin and what they can do to make a visible difference. Liz has written many books about skin and nutrition over the years, and has pooled her knowledge into this one brilliant book.
This is a very personal book, with photographs of her family and friends and an indispensable guide to having naturally beautiful skin. It shows Liz’s holistic approach to great skin – which I am greatly passionate about! How you eat, sleep and how you relax are just as important as how you cleanse and exfoliate! I agree with pretty much everything that is in this book and love the recipes and the skin boosting snacks! This book would make a wonderful present for anyone with an interest in skin care and health!

“For the last 25 years, I’ve been writing about and researching ways to create naturally beautiful skin. I’ve been asked many times about how you can make a visible difference to your skin, whatever your age or stage in life. From early teens, through pregnancy, mid-life, menopause and far beyond, a healthier, brighter complexion really is achievable for everyone – including men (and there are suggestions for them, too).” Liz Earle.
