Unblemished: Stop Breakouts! Fight Acne! Transform Your Life! Reclaim Your Self-esteem with the Proven 3-step Program Using Over-the-counter Medicationsby Katie Rodan Kathy Fields Vanessa Williams
It's a fact: Acne affects at least 50 million American men and women of all ages, ethnicities, and skin types. Yet so few of us understand why we have acne, and what we can do to treat it. Did I wash my face the wrong way? Did I eat too much chocolate? Will that expensive new cream really work? Will my face ever look better? In Unblemished, Drs. Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields -- creators of Proactiv Solution, the country's #1 selling acne-care product -- refute some of the most common misunderstandings about acne and present a groundbreaking guide using only over-the-counter medications to banish breakouts forever. Based on proven medical research and their extensive personal experience treating patients, the Rodan and Fields approach works in three basic steps. Rather than spot-treating blemishes and pimples reactively, their system -- individualized for every skin color, type, and age -- treats the entire face using an easy-to-follow regimen that is designed to attack acne at its source so you can get the clear, beautiful skin you've always wanted. You can change the face of acne -- and you can change your life.
A candid and inspirational mother-daughter memoir of family, fame, trials, and triumphs by superstar Vanessa Williams her mother Helen Williams. Since she was a little girl, Vanessa Williams wanted to be on Broadway. As a musical theater major in college she was on her way, but life took a turn when she became the first black Miss America. Forced to resign due to a nude photo scandal, it looked like her dreams were over. But through determination, and with a mom who was always there for her, she went on to conquer the entertainment world. Like most teenagers, Vanessa Williams was often at odds with her mom. Despite their early conflicts, Helen has always ardently protected her daughter, staying in contact with the FBI about death threats Vanessa received and being there for her through the birth of her four children and dissolution of her two marriages. Vanessa and Helen tell of how they've made it through the many ups and down in their lives; and Vanessa dishes on her career and parts of her life that even her mother had no idea about--until now. You Have No Idea is a celebration of the love between a mother and daughter as well as the lives thus far of two women who have consistently defied the odds to achieve success - no matter how uncertain their paths might have been.
