Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We all know absolute beauty when we see it--skin that glows with health and an outer bearing that projects inner tranquillity. Yet, despite our every effort and expense, few of us know how to achieve it. In Absolute Beauty, Pratima Raichur, a chemist and internationally recognized expert on Ayurvedic skin care, explains how the external skin tissue is the physical reflection of everything that happens within the body: the way we eat and breathe, as well as the thoughts and emotions that fill our mind and color our spirit. Here, in the first beauty and skin care guide to reveal the secret to lasting radiance through the principles of Ayurveda, Pratima Raichur offers readers:

  • a detailed self-test to determine their exact skin type

  • customized skin care plans for each skin type

  • proven-effective advice for addressing the most troubling skin problems

  • essential nutritional information

  • instructions for detoxifying the body

Synopsis:

A chemist and internationally recognized expert on Ayurvedic skin care, Pratima Raichur explains how the external skin tissue is the physical reflection of everything that happens within the body: the way we eat and breathe, as well as the thoughts and emotions that fill our mind and color our spirit. Combining ancient and modern science, Absolute Beauty describes the three constitutional skin types, or "doshas", and walks readers through the three essential steps of good skin care. Raichur also outlines the five sense-based therapies that work from the inside out to create a glowing complexion and an attractiveness that transcends age, fashion, and superficial flaws. This exceptional beauty manual includes a detailed self-test to help readers determine their exact skin type, customized skin care regimens for each skin type, proven-effective advice for addressing the most troubling skin problems, essential nutritional information, and instructions for detoxifying the body. Perhaps most important, Pratima Raichur provides an accessible introduction to Ayurveda's spiritual principles and practices to help all women achieve the joy and peace of mind that are the ultimate source of absolute beauty.
