#SkintoSoulBeauty Unleashed is a non-fiction motivational self-help book written by Neva K. Read. What is beauty? Read differentiates between the superficial beauty found on the pages of social media and glossy fashion magazines and that deeper beauty which comes from within in this guide that shows you how to get in touch with your soul and let your true beauty shine through. She introduces her subject with anecdotes from her own life. As a young, successful professional, she found herself obsessing over unrealistic and shallow beauty standards and realized that she had needlessly wasted money that could have been saved towards a house and her future on makeup, the latest fashions and trendy shoes. She took stock of her life when she became a thirty-something and decided to do something about the fact that she was on her own and lacking satisfying friendships and love interests. As she assessed her situation, she began to examine the choices she had been making and started looking for new directions based on her early life and familial mentors. She discusses beauty myths and then sets out twelve steps to unleashing your own skin to soul beauty. Read also includes her personal beauty routine and an invitation to join her Beauty Tribe, a free online support system designed along the principles of this text.
Neva K. Read's non-fiction motivational self-help book, #SkintoSoulBeauty Unleashed, is intended for a female audience; however, I found much within it that is well worth considering no matter what your gender. Read's concerns reach across the gender divide, and most of her solutions are relevant to everyone. From her beauty myths to her twelve steps to discovering your true beauty, Read's discussions and exercises will help anyone willing to honestly sit down and assess their lives, hopes, dreams and aspirations. She guides the reader through an examination of their past and family background that is perceptive and thought-provoking, and her material on the healing powers of forgiveness is persuasive and well-founded. I especially liked the meditation work she presents, as well as the whole health and fitness routine that concludes her book. Read sprinkles inspirational quotes throughout her work, and I found myself looking forward to reading each one. She also includes links to online resources and a list of references and supplemental readings that is quite useful. #SkintoSoulBeauty Unleashed is most highly recommended.
