"A magical guide.” —Aerin Lauder, Founder & Creative Director of AERIN and Style & Image Director of Estée Lauder

From three generations of French beauty experts, Ageless Beauty the French Way is the ultimate book of tips, products, practices and French beauty secrets in ten categories such as Hair, Skin, Makeup, Sleep, and Perfume.

While many women are passionate about the best skin care lines, hair treatments, and beauty practices, Clémence von Mueffling has that passion in her DNA. Both her mother and grandmother were beauty editors for French Vogue, and Clémence proudly continues their legacy in Ageless Beauty the French Way, a luxurious, entertaining, unparalleled guide to every French beauty secret for women from all walks of life. Learn the most effective ways to let your natural beauty shine through; that double-cleansing your face is the only way to go; that there is more to choosing the perfect perfume than you ever imagined; and that a simple, nightly facial massage is the ultimate secret to an ageless, glamorous, youthful face.

Weaving wisdom from all three women with insiders tips from top beauty experts, Clémence shares both timeless and age-specific information in three categories—Jeunesse (15-35), Plénitude (35-55), and Maturité (55+)—creating a wonderful guide that any woman can cherish throughout her life, and pass down to her daughter through the years.

It's not your age that's causing half of those lines and crinkles. It's your life.

Now, Amy Wechsler, MD shows you how to de-stress your skin and take years -- years -- off your face.

In 9 days.

Liking the way you look is vital to your health and happiness. But that's not easy when life runs at warp speed -- you're simultaneously coping with ever-increasing demands: dependent kids, aging parents, or both; shopping; cooking; laundry; money pressures; and more, more, more. Good bet you're superstressed, tightly wound, sleep-deprived -- and it shows.

Sure, but your thirties you've accumulated the first signs of normal aging: crow's feet, a bit of saf, some broken capillaries. But stress aging -- how the madness of modern life affects your physical features inside and out -- is today's biggest skin and health challenge.

Happily, stress aging is very reversible. And it takes only a few days. While you may never be able to totally turn off all the pressure (if only!), Dr. Wechsler has plenty of combination strategies -- from her own favorite stress buster to her number one wrinkle reverser -- to help you turn back the aging effects of tension and time. She'll also teach you how to slow down and, to some degree, reverse the natural aging process. This is your guide to feeling, looking, and living young.

In her book, she shows you how to:
Find out your SkinAge with a groundbreaking test that reveals how old (or young!) you really book Personalize a 9-day renewal plan that's right for your face, wallet, and psyche Understand the different cosmetic procedures and products available today Adopt a mind-beauty regimen that will keep your skin -- correction: your whole body -- looking and feeling terrific -- not just for now, but for life.
The mind-beauty connection is powerful and can dramatically affect how well -- and how fast -- you age. The rewards for soling it go far beyond a quick fix. They're transforming. You'll not only look better, you'll also sleep better, feel better, and likely lose unwanted weight as you begin to feel healthier, less stress, and more alive.

Ready for a whole new you?

Open this book and let's start!
Tired of wasting hundreds of dollars on expensive wrinkle creams, drying lotions, and zit-zappers that just don't work? Well listen up, ladies. To really get gorgeous, you've got to change the way you feed your face.
Cosmetics companies, women's magazines—heck, even most doctors—will swear that food doesn't affect the skin. But celebrity dermatologist Dr. Jessica Wu knows that's just not true. After years spent battling her own pimple-prone, "problem" skin (not to mention caring for some of Hollywood's most famous faces), she's learned that what you eat has everything to do with the condition of your complexion.
Packed with patient testimonials and celebrity anecdotes from stars like Katherine Heigl, Maria Bello, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Lisa Ling, FEED YOUR FACE is an easy-to-follow, 28-day diet plan that will help you banish blemishes, wipe out wrinkles, shed unwanted pounds, and generally feel better—in your clothes and in your skin. Along the way, Dr. Wu will dish the dirt on her journey from Harvard Medical School to the glamorous Hollywood Hills, while offering realistic, practical beauty and diet advice for women of all ages.

Follow the FEED YOUR FACE Diet, and you can have pizza. You can go out for Italian, indulge in Chinese takeout, and dine at The Cheesecake Factory (with the help of the FEED YOUR FACE Restaurant Guide). Because you do have the power to change your skin. All you have to do is eat.

"Hannah Bronfman is challenging us all to rethink our default standards of beauty and definitions of ‘healthy’ —and I, for one, couldn’t be happier to hear this from another woman of color in the wellness community.  Do What Feels Good is a practical, inspirational, and beautiful guidebook to feeling good in your own skin.” --Gabrielle Union, actress and bestselling author of We’re Going to Need More Wine

As a food lover, beauty product addict, exercise junkie, and wellness entrepreneur, Hannah Bronfman practically radiates confidence and health. But she’ll be the first one to admit that the road to wellness and self-acceptance hasn’t been easy. As a woman of color who grew up watching a close family member struggle with an eating disorder, Hannah’s had to forge her own path and create her own standards of beauty. And what she’s learned is this: Healthy is beautiful. And healthy should feel good.

In Do What Feels Good, Hannah offers real talk about getting in touch with your body’s needs, baring her soul and sharing her story along the way. Hannah provides insight on everything from gut health to nutrition to fitness to skincare, sharing insight from top experts on how to understand your body’s unique chemistry so that you can fuel it with more of the things that feel good and less of the things that don’t.

And since delicious food is one of the things that makes everyone feel good, Hannah shares more than 50 of her favorite recipes for healthy hedonism (desserts and cocktails included!). Enlightening, empowering, and educational, this is an approach to wellness that is holistic, hedonistic, and real. Because self-care should not feel self-punishing, and every body deserves to feel good.

An Ounce of Hydrogen Peroxide is Worth a Pound of Cure

Hydrogen peroxide is trusted by every hospital and emergency room in the country for its remarkable ability to kill deadly germs like E. coli and the swine flu virus. In fact, it has attracted so much interest from doctors that over 6000 articles about it have appeared in scientific publications around the world.
Research has discovered that hydrogen peroxide enables your immune system to function properly and fight infection and disease. Doctors have found it can shrink tumors and treat allergies, Alzheimer’s, asthma, clogged arteries, diabetes, digestive problems and migraine headaches.
Smart consumers nationwide are also discovering there are hundreds of health cures and home remedy uses for hydrogen peroxide. A new book called The Magic of Hydrogen Peroxide is now available that tells you exactly how to use hydrogen peroxide by itself... and mixed with simple everyday kitchen items... to make liniments, rubs, lotions, soaks and tonics that treat a wide variety of ailments.
It contains tested and proven health cures that do everything from relieving chronic pain to making age spots go away. You’ll be amazed to see how a little hydrogen peroxide mixed with a pinch of this or that from your cupboard can:
