DROP EVERYTHING, it’s a major news day today!
I’m finally able to talk about my second book, Face Values: The New Beauty Rituals and Skincare Secrets, which will be appearing in warehouses any day now and in shops on September 16th.
Face Values: The New Beauty Rituals and Skincare Secrets is not your average beauty how-to book. It’s beauty through a lifestyle lens, a show-and-tell of identity stories, beauty philosophies, wellbeing rituals and relatable skincare revelations from a truly wonderful global line-up of contributors.
What is Bethann Hardison’s unusual relaxation ritual? How did a frustrating skin condition influence Gucci Westman’s make-up line? What’s Linda V Wright’s grey hair hack? Which superstar DJ can’t live without her Byredo candles, Weleda Skinfood and her neti pot? The key takeaway is not to sell you products and ‘perfection’ (although there are product recommendations) but to celebrate the sensorial everyday rituals that make us feel good in an overwhelming world.
While the official launch date is September 16th, the pre-order is almost as important, so if the book piques your interest (or you enjoyed my first book), do consider pre-ordering it from Waterstones*, Barnes & Noble, Walmart*, WHSmith, Foyles, Hatchards, Bookshops.org or Amazon* to give it a head start and some added visibility. (Oh, algorithms!)
