Look Great, Live Green: Choosing Bodycare Products That Are Safe for You, Safe for the Planet Hardcover – 13 October 2009
Enhance your purchase
From the Back Cover
Since she was old enough to buy her first lip gloss, Deborah Burnes has been obsessed with beauty products. But as she worked as a model, trained as a cosmetologist and herbologist and began to raise a family, she became a much more savvy consumer.
Lipstick with lead, powders with toxic talc, silicone that damages pores...? Burnes knew there had to be a better way. "We buy these products because we want to look good and feel our best, but looking good shouldn't make us, or the planet, sick in the process."
So Burnes set about combining all of her research about what works and what hurts with an industry insider's tips, tricks and techniques. She debunked inflated label claims and eliminated dubious ingredients. The result was her all-natural, highly-successful, celebrity-beloved Sumbody skin-care line ... and now her first book, Look Great, Live Green.
In these pages, with infectious enthusiasm and no-nonsense practicality, Burnes shares her secrets, shortcuts and even recipes. You learn to:
de-mystify label claims and ingredients in everything from soaps, lotions, and toothpaste to deodorant, shampoo and makeup
detox skincare at every age and stage -- baby, kid, teen, adult
enjoy natural and organic products on any budget
You'll also be inspired by the contributions of Oscar-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition carpenter Didiayer Snyder, Golden-Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick and former model Keisha Whitaker. Each shares her philosophy about the nature of beauty and how it guides their everyday actions as women, mothers and global citizens.
As Burnes says, once you are empowered with the green options and real-world solutions offered in Look Great, Live Green, "You save money, your skin, your health. You save the planet. That's the best ending I could write."
