I am proud to announce that I am part of the blog tour for the release of The Skincare Bible by Dr Anjali Mahto, published by Penguin on April 5th.
I would love to say that I know everything about skincare but the truth is I don’t. I used to watch a lot of beauty youtubers when I was younger but never got to fully understand what they were all doing with all those products on their skins. So when Penguin asked me if I wanted to receive this book, I jumped on the occasion and immediately said yes, hoping this bible will be able to answer to all my questions.
❥ THE BOOK
It definitely isn’t the kind of book you sit down to read entirely. I started to use it and only read bits from time to time, picking what I want to know more of. For example my skin is quite red most of the time, so I looked in the book for it and an entire part is dedicated to it, called “rosacea“. It was really useful to finally knowing what it was and to find some way to deal with it. I also looked for regular skincare, and an entire chapter is dedicated to it. In the end, it is very easy to find what you are looking for and everything is writing simply enough to make everyone understand what the author is saying.
The book by itself is also gorgeous: I honestly can’t stop to stare at it, and my pictures don’t do it justice. The typo is big enough and there aren’t too many words on one page, which I find it way better for this kind of book since I’m not looking to get bored while reading medical stuff: it’s book is easy to read, and even enjoyable.
❥ THE PRODUCTS
Penguin was kind enough to send me two skincare products along with the book, which I have been using ever since. Please note that they aren’t sponsored by either myself, Penguin or Dr Mahto, but are recommended by Dr Mahto in this book. I find it so relaxing to take the time to take care of my skin and I have to say that for now, those two products are working well on me (which is very sensitive).
I hope that you liked this blog post! It was very interresting for me to agreed to review a book that I wouldn’t have buy on my own, and I was really surprised by the quality of it.
Do you buy books about health and personal care? Do you take care of your skin?
