Simple Skin Beauty - Every Woman's Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin

Simple Skin Beauty - Every Woman's Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin by Ellen Marmur, MD, with Gina Way - ISBN: 978-1-4165-8697-5 - $17 - I like how they've made this book really easy to navigate - it's nicely sectioned off into three parts - Part One: The Basics: Know Your Skin and How to Care for it which includes sections on: How Your Skin Works, There Are No Skin Types, Factors That Influence Your Skin and Your Seriously Simple Skin Care Plan; Part Two: Saving Face: The Health of Your Skin which includes sections on: Your UV Protection Strategy, What Does a Dermatologist Do? How Can I Be a Wiser Patient? And Other Important Questions, Skin Cancer, Skin SOS; and Part Three: Regaining Your Youthful Skin which includes sections on: Cracking the Code on Cosmeceuticals: Can Antiaging Products Make Us Look Younger, and Which Ones Really Work?and The Big Breakthroughs: Cosmetic Procedures That Deliver.  This makes it easy to read about only the subjects that interest you and you don't have to plow through a bunch of other stuff to get there!

I especially enjoyed the section where she goes through a bunch of the most popular cosmetic procedures and tells you exactly what to expect with them including how much it will (or won't) hurt!

If you find skincare at all confusing, you will enjoy how Dr. Marmur breaks it down and explains it in a way that anyone could understand!

  1. Sounds like a great book! I am going to have to check this out!!! :)

  2. Interesting book, I am guessing the section on what anti-aging products really work, would pay for the cost of this book tenfold.
