Product Description

Review

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."

About the Author

KRISTEN MA is the co-owner of Pure + Simple Inc., a group of holistic spas with its own line of natural skin-care and make-up. She was drawn to the world of skin-care at age ten when she started to experience her own skin ailment: chronic acne. Kristen is an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Esthetician and studied in both North America and India to deepen her understanding of the connection between internal health and external beauty.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book - I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from skin problems and is tired of conventional treatments and products that don't work. I bought this book for my sister who has suffered from chronic acne for many years and has tried everything to get rid of it. The author's approach to skin care is quite unique, and the ayurvedic approach she recommends really worked for my sister -- we have all noticed a significant improvement in her skin which is quite amazing! I was so impressed that I bought another copy for myself and consult it regularly for questions relating to my internal health and skin.

I am usually skeptical of "natural" approaches to just about anything, but taking some of the advice in this book actually made a noticable difference for me, and I was very happily surprised.

Kristen Ma is incredible when it comes to skin care. I started going to her for facials 2 years ago when my rosacea and acne were at it's worst and have since read her book. She knows more about skin care than my dermatologist! My skin has come along way since I started using chemical free products and I have a much better understanding as to why my skin reacts the way it does. I recommend this book and Pure + Simple products to all my friends battling with skin issues.

Beauty: Pure and Simple is an insightful book on natural and holistic beauty. Kristen Ma's depth of knowledge and personal anecdotes provide a concise and easy to understand guide to beauty. Unlike most traditional beauty books, Beauty: Pure and Simple combines Kristen Ma's extensive education of Ayurveda and her experience in the Spa industry, to then focus in on the root causes of many skin ailments, instead of only treating the skins surface.

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.
