Beauty: Pure + Simple is a practical guide to modern skincare using the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda. A state of inner balance between body, mind and consciousness and the doshas, beauty is eternal and crystal clear and Kristen Ma shows how to be beautiful at all ages according to doshic principles. (Dr. Vasant Lad, Ayurvedic Physician and Author of Ayurveda: The Science of Self Healing)
“Kristen Ma’s knowledge, insight, easy-to-understand language and personal anecdotes into the world of Ayurveda and all-natural skin, hair and beauty care made this a compelling and inspiring read.” (Chantel Simmons, Author of Stuck in Downward Dog)
“This is not like other beauty books. It’s an intelligent and sensitive guide to getting the best skin possible, without harsh chemicals. I feel like I’m pampering myself just reading it!” (Alanna Mitchell, Author of Sea Sick: The Global Ocean in Crisis)
“Beauty, Pure + Simple is an enlightened, holistic approach to skincare, brimming with informative advice for a healthier, more beautiful complexion.” (Karen Kain, Artistic Director of The National Ballet of Canada)
"Ma proves herself to be an honest practitioner whose rich knowledge of beauty and the body are founded in the ancient Indian philosophy of Ayurveda. Neither Ma nor this book is interested in a quick treatment fix that will zap a symptom. Much like a homeopath, she is interested in understanding and treating the root of the problem."

She was drawn to the world of skin-care at age ten when she started to experience her own skin ailment: chronic acne.

Whilst providing education, the book also gives practical examples on how to apply the best practices for each individual. I thoroughly recommend this book for any one seeking advice on holistic beauty, that goes far beyond the skins surface.
