Our skin is one of our most important layers. It shows EVERYTHING. Dirt, stress, sunburns, wrinkles, dimples, shaving irritation, allergies, and (let's not forget) the horror of acne. It's the one organ that lives on the outside of the body, and it takes the brunt of all of our actions. It's there to protect us, and also, at times, to give us major headaches. This beautifully illustrated and well-researched advice manual is all about skin. Provides researched biological and medical information in easily understood language. Also explores organic remedies, doctor-administered procedures, old wives tales, and current trends.

Grade 6 Up—Girls well versed in the world of magazines will find themselves on familiar ground with this book. Bergamotto draws from her beauty-industry experience to discuss every conceivable skin-related issue: protection from the sun, figuring out skin type, best cleansing rituals, hair removal, etc. Particularly helpful are the makeup primers that include an overview of the products and comparison of different brands, a realistic response to pimples (it is a bad idea to pop them, but since you can't resist, here's the best way to do it), and simple recipes for concocting at-home facial treatments. There's something for every girl here, whether she's just had her first breakout or needs a refresher on which sunscreen to use and when to reapply. Colorful spot art decorates the pages and gives the book an open, attractive look.—Joanna K. Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Library
