Skincare Decoded

The Practical Guide to Beautiful Skin

Written By: Victoria Fu, Gloria Lu
Depending on who you ask the secret to beautiful skin is microbiomes. Or Korean rice water. Or CBD. You could spend months trying to understand if these products live up to the hype. Luckily, Victoria Fu and Gloria Lu, professional skincare chemists, have done that for you. The science may seem complicated, but this book will show you how simple it can be, giving you what you need to make informed decisions for your skin (and your wallet).

Skincare Actives? Technically, cat sneezes could count. SPF? Yep, super important. CBD additives? The science is still out.

From the authors behind the popular Chemist Confessions Instagram, this book brings both sass and solid information. Skincare Decoded also reveals the best ingredients for every skin type and the only three product types you really need.
