If you're like most women, there's at least one part of your body that you wish you could change or "improve". It might be your weight, your thighs, or your nose -- but no matter what it is, it keeps you from feeling good about yourself. In Love Your Looks, Carolyn Hillman shows you how to get beyond societal or self-imposed standards and learn to accept -- and appreciate -- your own special attractiveness. Full of affirming, hands-on exercises, this compassionate guide
-- reveals how your upbringing affects the way you view your appearance, then shows you how to revise that perspective
-- teaches you how to regard your weight in a healthy and nurturing way, rather than in one that makes you feel unattractive and insecure
-- shows you how to improve your sex life with techniques that foster body love
-- tells you how to celebrate the uniqueness of your own beauty, instead of obsessing about how you're "supposed" to look

Most important, Love Your Looks will teach you how to develop positive feelings of acceptance and approval of your appearance, so you can feel good about your body and yourself.
