About the Book



Originally published in hardcover in 1997.



Book Synopsis



Ayurveda has become the most prevalent and respected holistic discipline in America today. Popularized by bestsellers such as Deepak Chopra's "Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, " its principles of working in harmony with nature and treating the mind, body and spirit as a whole have been wholeheartedly embraced by millions.

"Absolute Beauty" applies Ayurveda's principles to create a truly unique approach to skin care. Unlike other beauty books, which concentrate solely on creating superficial beauty through makeup or drugs like Retin-A, it helps readers achieve the kind of radiance that comes from within a beauty that is so luminous, so vital, that it transcends age, fashion and physical flaws. The book includes: a self-test to help readers determine their exact skin type, customized skin-care regimens; a consumer's guide to the dizzying array of so-called natural products available; remedies for common skin problems; important nutrition information; instructions for detoxifying the body; and a discussion of the spiritual side of Ayurveda to show how it can help readers achieve tranquility and the resulting inner glow.



From the Back Cover



We all know absolute beauty when we see it-- skin that glows with health and an outer bearing that projects inner tranquillity. Yet, despite our every effort and expense, few of us know how to achieve it. In "Absolute Beauty," Pratima Raichur, a chemist and internationally recognized expert on Ayurvedic skin care, explains how the external skin tissue is the physical reflection of everything that happens within the body: the way we eat and breathe, as well as the thoughts and emotions that fill our mind and color our spirit. Here, in the first beauty and skin care guide to reveal the secret to lasting radiance through the principles of Ayurveda, Pratima Raichur offers readers:

a detailed self-test to determine their exact skin type

customized skin care plans for each skin type

proven-effective advice for addressing the most troubling skin problems

essential nutritional information

instructions for detoxifying the body.
