We all know that taking good care of your skin and hair is the basis of habits not only related to beauty, but also to health. Many of us are guided by the knowledge gained on YouTube channels, blogs, fanpages, Instagrams or the recently popular TikToki.
Information obtained there are often unreliable, mutually exclusive and more often work as curiosities and experiments than are the results of years of work and experience.

Where can you get safe, proven knowledge that is backed by scientific research?
The answer can be found among the many books available in bookstores. Let’s buy and read first of all works of reliable authors, such as researchers, experts in their fields who are scientists or doctors.
