Winner, 2010 IBPA Ben Franklin Awards for Cover Design

“These are simple choices we can all make without creating any negative impact on our personal lives; [they] benefit us all…. That is beautiful.” — Kyra Sedgwick, Golden Globe–winning actress

Experience a New Brand of Beauty

Yes, you can look good, feel good, and do good— without sacrificing time, money or results

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 shouldnt 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 insiders 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

Youll 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. Thats the best ending I could write.”

Synopsis:

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.
