The image a person projects is of basic and significant importance in career development, opportunity, peer status and ultimate achievement. It has often been thought that well-groomed persons are generally more sensitive, kind, interesting, strong, poised, sociable, outgoing, and exciting than poorly groomed individuals.
The importance of beauty in human affairs has long been appreciated by poets and artists. Today much can be done with sophisticated cosmetics to enhance the appearance of an individual. Cosmetics contribute not only to the appearance but also to health in the fullest sense of skin, psychologic and social wholesomeness.
This book is primarily intended for the new conscious generation of men and women who groom to look good. It is for those people who want to scientifically appear marvelous and who want to know what they are using to look glamorous, because there is a right way to do things and a wrong way to do things, and this is where the book will help you out.
Starting with a basic knowledge of the structures and functioning of skin, nail, hair and teeth, the book goes on to cover normal scientific care of parts of the body which are ‘on show’. A number of myths are dispelled on a scientific basis and the book does not subscribe to the effect of unscientific instant remedies. One objective of this book is to give information concerning the major categories of cosmetic products with emphasis on intended uses, generalities of formulations and an update on what is new. This I feel is very important because most women are totally confused by the vast range of cosmetic products available. Just looking at the range of shampoos alone, each one promising an instant ‘crowning glory’, is enough to leave anyone feeling mystified and liable to make an expensive blunder.
Another objective is to review specific problems caused by cosmetics. The cosmetic product for people with special skin types is also stressed. How each cosmetic category can be used to the fullest advantage is discussed in great detail.
A part of the book is devoted to the cause and effort of common skin, hair, nail and teeth problems. It provides sound practical advice on the treatment of these problems. A separate chapter deals with the modern trends in cosmetic surgery – a field which is attracting a lot of clientele today. However, readers are strictly advised to seek expert medical opinion and not indulge in self treatment.
