After rummaging through the first few pages, I knew I wasn't leaving the bookstore without this! Want to know how supermodels attack cellulite? They rub their morning coffee grounds into their problem areas; logic being, since caffeine is the largest ingredient in expensive cellulite creams, this is an inexpensive alternative. Got a big, angry red zit right before a date? Rub some Visine on it- it gets the red out of more than your eyes. How do supermodels' eyes look so rested and refreshed? Break out the Preperation H, my friend. The same "Shrinking of hemmoroidal tissues" can happen to puffy bags underneath your eyes, along the jawline, and on puffy cheeks.

Though this book is undersized, it's really huge in content. All the beauty tips and secrets Diane Irons gives the reader are easy to understand and follow. Whether you want to know how to "get the red" out of a surfacing blemish (use visine), or how to soften the skin on your elbows and knees (use a lemon), this book should be on every woman's beauty shelf.
