HELOISE'S BEAUTY BOOK

An avalanche of beauty and health tips from this popular advocate of ""getting things done as inexpensively, quickly and easily as I can""--good grooming included. For Heloise, looking good means feeling good, so she includes sections on diet and exercise (routine advice, in the familiar style), as well as on skin and hair care, and wardrobe planning. Along the way, she mentions her own idiosyncratic routines (""I like to leave my mascara on for five or six days. . . I like the way my lashes look with a buildup""); makes liberal use of kitchen finds (""It's so easy to bleach and soften those elbows. Any time you squeeze lemons, save the little cups of lemon halves. . .""); and expounds on common practices--""Have you ever wondered why we shave our legs instead of our arms--which are, after all, more visible?"" And so on and on--through jewelry cleaning and anorexia nervosa and the use of fragrance and finding the right toothbrush. . .and a host of other problems that can be solved by using materials at hand. Characteristically light and resourceful.
