More About the Author

In 1983 I became a skin and beauty therapist. Eventually owning three beauty businesses which gave me access to insider information ... but I didn't like what I saw.

I started to question the manufacturers about the ingredients in the products I was recommending and selling. In the late eighties I discovered aromatherapy (when people didn't even know what the word meant!). While studying to become a clinical aromatherapist in London I began to see how natural ingredients were more effective AND less damaging to your skin AND your health. Using my skin as a laboratory I investigated how nutrition and natural therapies can make a positive difference to the health of your skin. I became VERY disillusioned with the beauty industry. I could not live a lie any longer and in 1997 we sold-up and left the beauty industry behind and took a different career path. In 2001 I started a marketing company, never wanting anything to do with the 'ugly' "beauty" industry. But my friends wanted their skin to look like mine and pestered me for my 'skin secrets' which lead to a book being written about what I had learned about the beauty industry rip-offs. Titled "If You Want Great Skin, Throw Away Your Cosmetics", it was published as a hard copy book in 2004 but seems people were not yet ready to hear this information. Seems they loved their fancy jars of stuff too much - seriously. So I went on with life...

My husband (and childhood sweetheart) 'thought' we could not have children but at the age of 40 I gave birth to a beautiful boy. Being a parent has you see how trivial some things are, things that we 'thought' were important really aren't at all. Being 'older' parents we thought we'd do some travelling while still young which had us touring around Australia for two and half years. Want to get closer to your family? Try living in a caravan for 2 years!

You know those moments in time that change your life? We had a MAJOR one in November 2010 when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. Luckily I was extremely healthy BEFORE I began the chemotherapy which made it easier for me to heal, possibly the reason I survived - as I had a 10% chance of survival! (I'll write a book about 'that' journey one day.)

In the meantime ... here I am, living in gorgeous Cairns Australia giving thanks and gratitude for life. It's so very precious.

Helen Bairstow has put together a well-researched and easy to read book that calls on her specialised training and experience as a natural skin care practitioner. She shares her tried and tested methods of improving the health and appearance of your skin from top to toe, from the inside and on the outside, with minimum use of potentially harmful cosmetic products. This book changed my approach to skin care. The principles complemented the healthier lifestyle choices I was making, and putting them into practice is easy. Give Helen's methods a try if you value your health, want a less expensive option than most cosmetic regimes, and have given up believing the hype and false promises of the big manufacturers. This book promises healthy skin secrets, and it delivers.

Over time I have purchased loads of beauty books. Some were somewhat helpful but none were empowering. I didn't have a ton of faith when I read the book. But, decided to give it a try. Within 7 days I could see a difference in my skin. For the price of one product from the department store you can have all you need to care for your skin. It is wonderful being in control of what is going on your skin.

This is easy quick skincare which yelds results.

I am so grateful that someone finally came out and discovered all this information. I have suffered from skin issues since I hit puberty, now I am 30 years old. I finally realized that I am also slightly OCD about my skin. It is embaressing to admit, but I spend hours cleaning my face and picking at my face. I know its bad and I know that the first thing people see is your face. I am ashamed that Ive been doing this for so long. I've finally set somewhat of a stopwatch on my phone, I'm curious to see if I can be consistent with my routine and notice a change over a 28 day cycle. Helen does a really impressive job of explaining the human biology of the skin down to the cellular level. It helps you visualize what is actually going on. Once you realize her discovery of what actually softens your lips, as oppose to "chapstick", because, yes, everyone is addicted to chapstick and there is no advertising of what really works- you will also see there are soo many other embedded secrets that are just not advertised. I have literally been DIGGING to find out the truth to skin therapy and what we're really supposed to do. I felt so incredibly defeated by the time I started reading this. This is the real deal, people with skin issues are the MOST vulnerable. They will do anything to have good skin, which is why we always get suckered into scams and products that are more harmful than helpful. This book is one of a kind!

This book is a concise, simple to understand explanation of how our skin works.
The simple and mostly cost FREE methods to keeping your skin young, healthy and glowing are hard to believe. The tips and methods are so easy that you actually do them.
I find that when Buy expensive products - they sit there because it is too much trouble and a lot of work - different creams and lengthy processes.
You will also understand why most products are actually bad for your skin.
This book is a must read - it will not only save your skin - It will save you a fortune in products.

Healthy Skin Secrets has changed my thoughts on skin care. I have totally changed the way I care for my skin. I got almost instant results. Within days of using the methods in the book friends were commenting on how "flawless" my skin looked. It has easy, inexpensive and natural ways to best care for your skin. I LOVE the book & highly recommend it. I just wish I had read it long ago!

This is a great book! It's written in layman's terms, almost like a 12th grade health book for the skin. I'm not saying it's simple in any way, but there are diagrams of the different terms Helen is talking about at the time which makes it sink into your brain much better. She talks about eating to heal from the inside out, adding some supplements, and using less soaps with chemicals that dry the skin, using essential oils to help heal and many more good ideas to get your skin going in the right direction. I've always had oily skin and acne (and still do at over 50 years) unfortunately, so maybe changing my actions into a more natural regimen will help me heal this face in particular up. You will learn a lot about skin in general that you probably never knew. She does mention her website, but I haven't been able to get into the site yet, it may be down as I think she is fighting a health battle right now. Buy the book and learn something new. I have never highlighted anything more then this book in my life, so much good information.

Easy and pleasant reading,

Really works as a manual to restoring the natural beauty of your skin.
I put the exfoliation , compress and jojoba ending to test and was really astounded by the positive effects right the first time I did the procedure

Hope to read her book on her cancer journey when she writes it!

I heartedly recommend this book!

I read it through once and I go back to re-read important pieces about essential oils. I love how simple the book is and yet it does have great reveals. Its been two weeks now, I have been doing the compressions, eating better and drinking more water. It even made me want to exercise more-once a day. My skin is smooth and clearing up. It looks supple and hydrated. I will keep with this. Its a great book and I defintely reccomend it.
