Written by leading industry insiders to challenge the standards of the $571.1 billion beauty industry, this book tackles the common struggles of clients who are often left with more questions than answers when it comes to reaching their skin health goals.
Valeri was inspired to produce this book after consulting with many clients who repeatedly expressed their frustrations despite the multitude of products and services available. Most experienced minimal if any results.
The authors of this book are highly experienced in many areas of this industry, offering honest experiences and expertise that is typically kept silent. They believe in educating clients about their own health and refuse to conform to the mainstream beauty industry’s approach, instead choosing to unapologetically take a different approach.
“Healthy skin doesn’t come in a bottle or syringe and wellness doesn’t come in the form of a pill. Both come from how and what we feed our body, mind, and spirit. To expect a one size fits all approach to healthy skin and a healthy body is a great way to set practitioners and patients up for disappointment and failure. It’s time we stop believing all the hype and recognize that the body does not work on trends and one size definitely does not fit all. Marketing to young girls has become brutal, and the target ages keep getting younger. This type of peer pressure is devastating, and I refuse to stay quiet about it.” – Michelle Valeri
