No More Dirty Looks

Skinny Bitch meets the cosmetics and hair care industry - two beauty junkies go behind the bottle to reveal the hidden toxic chemicals in your favourite products, what they're doing to your body, and how you can get gorgeous without 'em. It started with a harmless quest for perfect wash-and-go hair. Every girl wants it, and Siobhan O'Connor and Alexandra Spunt finally found it in a fancy salon treatment. They were thrilled-until they discovered others had died from the very same product. Determined not to make the same mistake twice, Spunt and O'Connor left no bottle unturned: if it went on their body (and thus, absorbed into their skin and bloodstream), they researched it. As it turns out, many of those unpronounceable ingredients in your self-tanner and leave-in conditioner may not actually be regulated, and the 'natural' on your face wash doesn't mean what you think. Now, based on studies and interviews with top scientists and experts, the girls share their compelling findings and help readers detoxify their beauty regimes. Let's be honest, women care about their health - but vanity isn't far behind. In "No More Dirty Looks", readers will learn: what ingredients you want to avoid, both for your health and your vanity; the best available products out there, tried and tested and reviewed by the authors themselves; and, simple alternatives that you can make yourself. Now you can get gorgeous and come clean.
