Skincare: The ultimate no-nonsense guide – Caroline Hirons
Skincare can be so confusing and while I have reviewed a book on Korean Skincare on this blog, I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
Enter, The Queen of Skincare aka Caroline Hirons.
She’s a HUGE Skincare Blogger and Industry expert who has finally written a book all about Skincare.
What is it about?
Skincare can be so personal and for a lot of people, that time to do some self-care in the morning and evening helps you to get in touch with yourself, quite literally.
In our fast-paced, busy lifestyles one of the things we’re all missing is touch, but taking time out to touch your skin can help relax you after a busy day.
This book details more about how the skin works and then how to identify what kind of skin you have to help you work out which products may work for you.
The good thing I liked about this book is that it gives you enough information to go do some research yourself to find the products right for you, and it gives you suggestions to get started.
A lot of reviews on this book say that it’s too basic or that the information is available on her blog.
This is true, but I like having everything in one easy to reference place with sticky tabs and notes that work for me.
As for it being too basic, not everyone has an advanced understanding of Skincare, and for most, just knowing how to do the basics is life-changing.
If you want an advanced understanding of skincare and you know all the basics, it might be an idea to do a specialist skincare course to understand how things work in more detail.
Any book written on the topic will age with time as technologies and formulae change, but I think a timeless book like this will stand the test of time as it focuses on the basics which are hard to get right.
Would I recommend it?
If you don’t know where to start with skincare or if you want some no-nonsense advice then I would highly recommend this book on Skincare.
