Yes Sophia Loren has written a book about beauty tips/advices it's from 1984 by the way. You can buy it on Barnes and Nobles and Amazon. You can also read reviews about it. If I can get a hold of it it may take a while thougt I promise I'm gonna write on this thread what the book said.

Women & Beauty by Sophia Loren is out of print unfortunaely where I live (Sweden) but I have gotten the suggestion to look for it in books shops that sells old books. Amazon and Barnes & Nobles don't ship to other countries. So it is really hard to get hold of it from where I live.
The founder of the web site http://www.miss-vintage.com own that book I'm going to mail and ask if she can scan pages of the book. If she does it I can link to her page or write it down here.
But I have found this on the http://www.celebrity-beauty-tip-goldmine.com

"Sophia Loren is known as an ageless, exotic, Italian beauty. When she first came on the celebrity scene in the fifties and sixties, she was known for her thick dark hair and exotic brown cat-eyes. Sophia has even written a beauty advice book called Women & Beauty, which is avaliable in Amazon.com. Who better to write such a book than a woman that is still beautiful in her seventies! She must be doing something right! Sophia explains that in Italian culture women can still be considered beautiful no matter what age they are if they take care of themselves. She offers her advice on discipline, makeup, skin, hair, fashion, style, eating healthy and exercising. Sophia believes by preserving your looks has a lot to do with what you eat. Check out our Celebrity Body Section to learn to learn how to eat nutritious food like Sophia.

Sophia is a big fan of olive oil. While Sophia is sure to get two tablespoons of olive oil into her Mediterranean diet each day, she also rubs a small amount of olive oil into her skin everyday to keep it moisturized. She attributes her youthful looks to this ritual.
(However, if you have sensitive or acne prone skin this is probably not a good idea.)
Olive oil is the healthiest of all cooking oils and the best "fat" to fit into your food pyramid. According to the official Sophia Loren site (Sophialoren.com), Sophia's beauty secret is a love of life, spaghetti and the occasional bath in virgin olive oil!

Sophia also believes that women can enhance their beauty with colorful jewelry. Sophia is also extremely humble about her looks. She has said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that she considers her not beautiful in the classical defintion. She describes her face as "interesting" instead. Sophia is also a big proponent in inner beauty, and has said that attitude and charm can make anybody beautiful.

Sophia has also revealed a celebrity style secret. She says, "the cut and tailoring of a Giorgio Armani suit is mysteriously elegant-the formula can't be defined-It is just beautiful and simply Armani."

Sophia is famous for her eye wear, she sports very flattering and sophisticated styles. She is often seen in oversized and cat-eyed varities. She also has her own line of both eyeglasses avaliable at (Framesdirect.com) and sunglasses avaliable at (Eyefine.com)."

I have another one of her books called Sophia: Living and Loving, and there are some beauty tips in the back. I'm in college and don't have it with me, but on Thanksgiving I will try and type that section up for yall if you want. The tips are very wholesome, and rather common sense, like sticking to your own style when you embrace trends, eating what you want in the right portions, etc. But she does make it sound lovely.

Oh Bismarck I would appreciate that so much!! Even if this is the makeup part of TFS I would appreciate it you could write down what she writes about cooking too. I can't wait! When is Thanksgiving by the way? We don't celebrate it where I live.

You're welcome. I think both those sites are fantastic. British Adlibris apperently ships to Sweden. Or I think that at least. But I haven't figured out with which creditcards you can pay it. It irritates me so much this books is so difficult (at least for me) to get a hold of.
