As convenient as it is to scroll through Instagram or TikTok for immediate beauty and skincare tips, it is hard to beat a reference book for comprehensive, easy to follow information from an expert. Whether you are looking for a beginner’s guide to skincare, or want to focus more on the different types of acne and how to treat them, or a guide to the latest Korean or Asian skincare trends, there will be a book for that. Skincare books by dermatologists are also a perfect gift. Especially for the beauty and skincare lover who already has a full makeup bag.
