|Beauty Secrets For Dummies||
Beauty Secrets For Dummies is another in the “Dummies” line of books published by John Wiley & Sons. As those familiar with this series know, they help readers learn the basics of different tasks. Beauty Secrets For Dummies is ostensibly written by supermodel Stephanie Seymour, who shares her basic beauty tips on everything from hair to makeup to nails. Beauty Secrets For Dummies is widely available at online booksellers like Amazon. It includes a chapter on skin care tips including how to keep skin hydrated, how to prevent and correct wrinkles, and how to protect skin from sun and other environmental damage.
Online reader testimonials appear mixed for this title. Some readers feel that the advice is too basic to be of use and that similar information can be read for free all over the internet. Others feel that Beauty Secrets For Dummies is a useful primer for those wishing to learn the ABC’s of skin care.
At the time of this review, Amazon did not have Beauty Secrets For Dummies in stock nor were we able to find it on the Dummies list of books so there is a possibility that this title may be out of print. However, there may still be many used copies available for purchase.
The information in the book is indeed very basic and can be found in many places on the internet for free. In fact, any top-rated skin care product’s website will provide detailed information on the symptoms of aging skin and its rejuvenation. The book may be a welcome give for a teen or pre-teen just learning the basics of a beauty regimen, but those who are seeking more in-depth knowledge of skin care may be disappointed.

The Bottom Line
While we are always seeking new sources of information and new breakthroughs in skin care technology, Beauty Secrets For Dummies leaves much to be desired. Its basic format and information may be suitable for those who need a primer on hair, skin, and makeup, but we find that most consumers want a deeper understanding of their skin and how to care for it. With so many products on the market today aimed at mature skin, there is a wealth of information available for free. We feel that these websites may prove to be a richer resource of skin care wisdom.
