Summary

The ultimate guide to building confidence in your body, beauty, clothes, and life in an era of toxic social media-driven beauty standards.

“A self-confidence bible that every woman should read.” (Caroline Dooner, author of The F*ck It Diet)

Empowering, insightful, and psychology-driven, Beyond Beautiful is filled with proven, no-BS strategies for proactive self-care. This stylish and practical handbook takes a deep-dive into all of the factors that make it hard to feel good about yourself, and offers sage answers to tricky questions, like: 

  • Why do I hate the way I look in pictures?
  • How can I stop feeling like a total slob compared to everyone on social media?
  • How exactly does this "self-love" thing work?
  • How do I find the confidence to use less makeup, stop shaving, or wear what I want?
  • Is body positivity really the answer?

Beyond Beautiful is a much-needed breath of fresh air that will help you live your best life, know your worth, and stop wasting any more precious energy and mental space worrying about the way you look.

Good for getting into sleep

I have to thank this book for putting me into sleep after struggling with longstanding insomnia. For this purpose, it's great. Otherwise, there were lots of reports of how women experienced their body since childhood, but it wasn't going anywhere closer to deep analysis or methodology of how to cope with the wrong body image.

Accessible, quick read; great for young women

Great Xmas gift for the young women in your life. It’s a contemporary, conversational rewrite of many classics like Naomi wolf’s the beauty myth. Should be required reading for all women :)

Generic self help

Generic, no new information. A self help book with little substance. I wanted more from it.
