Clean: The New Science of Skin and the Beauty of Doing Less
Clean: The New Science of Skin and the Beauty of Doing Less by James Hamblin is the book to have when weighing your options or wanting some research done on soap and skincare. Hamblin’s skincare routine is practically non-existent, which will be a shock to some, but if you take the time to read what he has presented, some of his reasoning may make sense. Clean isn’t just a soapbox for Hamblin; it contains many credible sources about every aspect of soap and skincare imaginable. Each chapter is labeled something that pertains to skincare and contains historical facts and scientific figures to inform readers of the truth.
I enjoyed this book for all of the historical information about soap, of which I had no idea beforehand. Information about how many well-known brands got their start in the soap industry and how their marketing ploys would make or break them is sure to fascinate the reader. I appreciated the way that Hamblin wrote this book, which is simple to follow and presents many angles to the act of good hygiene. It will give the reader something to contemplate about their personal routines.
