As a young girl, Paula Begoun struggled with severe acne and eczema. After years of struggle, she had a skincare epiphany: peeking at a product label, she noticed the fourth ingredient listed was acetone - as in the key ingredient in your nail polish remover. Miss Begoun decided she had had enough! She ditched the harsh treatments and put together a non-cloying product line-up that finally cured her problem skin. Preaching her healthy skin gospel, Paula has penned over 20 books, hit the talk circuit, and in 1995, launched her own skincare line.
