The secrets the beauty industry doesn’t want you to know...

Beauty-industry expert and watchdog Ingeborg van Lotringen knows the good, the bad – and what the beauty industry doesn’t want you to know.Known for her no-nonsense approach, Ingeborg’s 25 years of experience as a beauty journalist means she has tested and researched nearly every possibly skincare product and treatment. Cutting through all the usual fluff and clichés, her new book, Great Skin: Secrets The Beauty Industry Doesn’t Tell You, is packed with practical advice. Lifting the lid on the industry’s many skincare myths, she helps you decide where to save, when it’s worth splashing the cash, and how to get that sought-after glow. Here are her favourite serums and facial oils for transforming your skin.
