Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty is a classic beauty book for teens and young women who want to own their uniqueness, feel super-pretty and have a lifetime of confidence. Originally published in the late 1990’s, it will never go out of style because of the basics Brown covers. For instance, to remain beautiful a woman needs rest, happiness and plenty of sleep. The rest is taking care of one’s inside health as well as taking care of one’s skin and finding looks that accentuate individual beauty.
Teens have tremendous self-image problems, but Bobbi Brown offers advice that is sensitive and easy to follow. There are no overly-involved beauty rituals that are confusing or expensive for a young girl to learn. Follow the advice in the pages of this book and you or the teenager in your life will soon appreciate her own uniqueness, all while feeling empowered to do so.
The book includes plenty of tips for healthy, beautiful skin and hair. However, some of the more important points cover Brown’s admonishment of things like smoking, drinking or doing drugs. Who wants to kiss a girl who smokes, she asks the reader, and why do drugs unless you feel like destroying your beauty?
As for girls who battle with acne, she advises that pimples be left alone. They are not to be picked or scratched for that will only make them worse. Girls need to drink plenty of water to stay lovely, and even fresh smelling. It was Brown who introduced the idea to teen girls that body odor is something that can be avoided by drinking plenty of water and eating right.
Makeup tips include doing makeup in the correct light at all times for all occasions. For hair, Brown tells teens to avoid home perms at all costs. She offers plenty of practical, useful tips, too.
Want to keep static from blowing up your hair? Spray static spray directly onto a hairbrush. Voila, no more Mrs. Frankenstein when you want to be the belle of the school with a slicked back, timeless ponytail.
These compelling thoughts captivated young girls when the book first came out, and they will speak to teens of today, too. In fact, many readers of the first edition are still referring back to the book in adulthood. The tips and advice in Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty are that good.
