Beauty is a gift of Nature to men and women and it takes it away if neglected. Even the best-textured skin tends to face problems if not cared for properly. Body in totality makes for an attractive personality and it is essential to take regular care of each part of the body, from head to heel. This book deals with a 100 contemporary techniques which enhance beauty of skin, face and body.

The concept of beauty has widened in the last three decades. For achieving success in career, looks and guts are needed. It is seen that many men and women have the aptitude but not having proper knowledge, they are unable to get good results. The art of Indian make-up and hairstyles has no parallels. Indian faces are exotic enough without being too ethnic. Indian girls are smart and beautiful. They have lovely skin tones and natural looks. If they are assisted and well groomed, they are as good as the best in the world.

Glamour is not out of reach if one is fully conversant with correct techniques of living and know-how about what to wear, eat, and the art of make-up, so one can even match the famous glamorous women in the world. A survey conducted in this regard reveals that women, whether living in metros or in villages, have a penchant for glamour, beauty and fashion - but their hopes are not always fulfilled due to lack of knowledge and guidance.

You will find this book, although not too comprehensive in size, has touched all vital aspects to make you a self-confident, perfect, beautiful, glamorous person by describing dress sense, art of make-up, keeping hair and skin healthy, diet and exercising, personal hygiene and body care to self-grooming.

I hope this book will prove to be a good friend, a helping hand and a sincere advisor to all those (not only women but also men) suffering from disorders of skin and hair, which are curable with a little care, and save them from ailments later in life. I have tried to give maximum natural remedies based on herbal formulations in this book. Such remedies were unknown to Indian women decades ago. However, this awareness has increased rapidly in past over two decades and today the picture is different. Beauty- conscious people themselves have re-discovered the potential hazards of synthetic products and are shifting to natural products.

I am thankful to Dr. D.S.Jaspal Patron & President, Indian Medical Association (Haryana) and Dr. (Ms) Rita jaspal, Chairperson of IMA (Haryana), for the cooperation and assistance rendered to me for making this book useful to the readers, especially to those suffering from serious skin ailments.

I hope this book will help readers to avoid, control and cure their sufferings with a little care and timely treatment. The readers should keep in mind that medical treatments described in this book are a reference only, not a medical guide or manual for self- treatment. No medical treatment should be taken without consultation of a qualified doctor.
