Here's my review of this terrific beauty book for teens:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Nancy Rue and her publisher for sending me a copy of "The Skin You're In: Discovering True Beauty" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“The Skin You’re In: Discovering True Beauty” by Nancy Rue is a wonderful book for tween and teen gals! It is packed with quizzes that lead to deep insight into self. Some of these would be fun to take with your friends during a spa night (chapter two) or sleepover! There are fun and creative ideas and terrific recipes for homemade treatments. There is good advice on products to use to improve hair, skin, feet, etc. And there is a bunch of information to help you decide on your overall style.

This is a terrific book to use with your daughter or let her use on her own. It’s also filled with spiritual insight that points young women to God through scripture and toward a healthy self-image. There is definitely a great need for that at this time. This is a well-written guide that encourages a daughter to interact with her mother and starts young women on a good path of caring for themselves.
