The success of a professional model's career depends on her figure, beauty and health -- she can't afford to gain weight, have blemishes or feel fatigued.  But even if you're not among those whose faces adorn the covers of top fashion magazines, you'll definitely want to share the beauty and health secrets of New York model, Oleda Baker.

This book is more than a standard collection of diets and exercises.  The author describes how models lose and maintain weight -- you'll be surprised at the variety of effortless plans -- and she provides recipes that would satisfy a gourmet.  Dieting just doesn't have to mean meals of watercress on a bed of lettuce -- it can also include Bouillabaisse Salad, Sweet and Sour Meatballs or Spanish Peaches.  The author also explains how health foods and vitamins can contribute to your overall beauty.

Overall beauty indeed, for Oleda Baker doesn't neglect any part of the body.  She and many of her model friends reveal their favorite beauty tricks so that you, too, can have prettier feet, alluring hands, a radiant complexion, gleaming teeth, shining hair.  You can learn how to minimize facial flaws and accentuate your best features with make-up, and improve your body contours with specially designed exercises.  You can even learn to make your own shampoos, skin care creams and facials, as many models do.  For instance, your supermarket is a treasure trove of cosmetics; olive oil, vinegar, tea, oatmeal, and honey all can be marvelous beauty aids.  And did you know that a solution of aspirin and baking soda makes a good dandruff treatment?

Above all, there's no need to protest that you don't have time for hours of elaborate beauty rituals -- the routines in this book will easily fit into the schedule of the woman who leads a busy life.

Fully illustrated, The Models' Way to Beauty, Slenderness and Glowing Health provides a beautiful path to self-improvement for any woman.
