Taking care of your appearance and hygiene increases self esteem and is essential for your general wellbeing. As people age or become unwell, the need for health and beauty care does not diminish but the body becomes more sensitive and deserves to be treated in a different way. This practical handbook is specifically designed to assist carers in looking after their clients' appearances as well as their health, providing a wealth of information on health and beauty care for older people.

Throughout the book, Sharon Tay, an experienced beauty therapist, gives detailed and easy to follow instructions on appropriate cosmetic techniques, avoiding damaging treatments and the overuse of harmful products that often cause unwanted skin, nail and hair problems. Question and answer sections are also included, highlighting some of the more frequently asked questions that have been asked by clients. The handbook gives guidance on a wide range of treatments including manicures, pedicures, herbal remedies, hair removal, skincare and make-up application.

Brimming with beauty and health care tips, this accessible handbook gives comprehensive guidance on cosmetic care for carers and anyone looking for advice on sensitive beauty treatments.
