A Beautiful New You: Inspiration and Practical Advice to Transform Your Looks and Your Life-- a Total Makeover without Cosmetic Surgeryby Laura DuPriest
Synopses & Reviews
Give yourself a real extreme makeover from the inside out!
Is all the stress of taking care of your family, home, and work starting to show on your face? Is your waistline increasing while your energy and patience levels decrease? Are you ready to make a change but aren’t sure how to do it? A Beautiful New You is about more than getting the right haircut or dressing to look ten pounds thinner. A former model turned beauty expert who rescued herself from being overweight, frumpy, and tired all the time, Laura DuPriest is a source of invaluable advice for anyone who wants to improve herself, just as she did—without cosmetic surgery! She knows firsthand what it’s like to let yourself (and your appearance) get lost in the grind of daily life. In her hand-holding inspirational guide, Laura reaches out to women just like you who are ready to reconnect with the person they truly want to be.
For years Laura has made it her mission, through her salon and weekly TV makeovers, to help hundreds of women who know the pressures of today’s fast-paced life and have little time and energy to devote to their own well-being, but want to look and feel better. Included in A Beautiful New You are the heartwarming stories from women whom Laura has helped, along with their astonishing before and after makeover photos. Just like these women who have embraced Laura’s six-step program, you too can feel empowered to change and improve every aspect of your life and become a beautiful new you.
•Does your exterior show that you take pride in yourself? Your self-esteem is communicated to others through your appearance.
•Come up with a dream look by collecting photos from magazines that will help you stay focused on the new you. Keep a journal of your moods and thoughts to recognize just what is holding you back and what is keeping you going.
•Create a simple makeup routine, allow time for exercise, and go to bed earlier—the time you spend on yourself will benefit everyone around you.
• Give yourself permission to be the best version of yourself: happy, confident, and proud. Treat yourself with the same care and kindness as you give to others around you.You deserve to look and feel beautiful!
Laura shows you how to reclaim your beauty—both inner and outer. Each step features real-life makeovers and moving personal stories of women who have transformed their appearance—and discovered a whole new positive attitude in the process. Stop wasting time making excuses—let A Beautiful New You help you bring out your best.
A beauty expert shares her personal approach to achieving both inner and outer beauty and explains how women can change and improve every aspect of their lives, taking readers step by step through the process of transformation in order to escape the grind of everyday life, renew their optimism, and reclaim their true beauty.
