I looked at my reflection and despaired. As an exhausted
young mother I felt ugly and saw that a new dress or face
cream would never help. I was at risk of passing on a habit
of feeling miserable about my looks to my baby girl—if
nothing changed. Soon afterward Phoebe Baker Hyde made a
vow: to give up new clothes, makeup, haircuts, and jewelry
in hopes of revealing something she had always paid lip
service to but never quite believed in—her inner beauty.
The Beauty Experiment chronicles Hyde’s quest
for self-acceptance in nothing but her own skin. In
thoughtful, exquisite prose, Hyde holds up a mirror to all
women and shows how perfectionism can keep us from achieving
what we really want: happiness, confidence, and serenity.
