Simple Skin Beauty
Every Woman's Guide to A Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous SkinBook - 2009 | First Atria Books hardcover edition.
With all the different kinds of skincare products now on the shelves and all the new-fangled cosmetic procedures now available, skincare has become daunting and overwhelming. New York City-based dermatologist, and a busy mother of four herself, Dr. Ellen Marmur knows that most women simply don't have the time or money to waste on products or procedures that are costly and ineffective. In this user-friendly guide, Dr. Marmur explains how it doesn't have to be so hard for women to get great skin and it doesn't have to be so expensive to maintain it. In her conversational but authoritative voice, Dr. Marmur arms readers with the knowledge they need to make safe and smart dermatological decisions for themselves and their families and provides them with the confidence to take charge of their health--at the cosmetics counter, at home, at the doctor's office, and beyond. In addition to providing readers with the tools to obtain a radiant complexion and help reverse the clock, Dr. Marmur explains how to protect your skin from harmful sun damage and regularly check it for signs of cancer. In refreshingly accessible language, she demystifies the fascinating world of procedures like lasers and fillers and Botox and confounding cosmeceutical ingredients like coffeeberry and niacinamide. With Simple Skin Beauty, readers will learn how to create their own no-nonsense skincare regimen that gets results.
