Read It: Beauty Junkies by Alex Kuczynski

I have always been into trying out beauty treatments. From Botox to the Brazilian Keratin Treatment to Revitalash, I've dabbled in them all. So when Mai read this book last year and passed it along to me, I dove in. In Beauty Junkies, New York Times style writer Alex Kuczynski delivers a witty and sometimes disturbing look at America's increasing obsession with beauty. While it's all far more extreme than any of my beauty experiments, this book is SO good – informative and entertaining. From Botox to breast implants, it's a must-read for anyone who appreciates the fantasy the beauty industry creates. --Shannon
