Synopsis:
A complete guide to good skin care, including targeted recommendations for addressing specific problems and keeping skin healthy and beautiful. Every year, consumers spend billions of dollars on skin care treatments--from basic soaps to the most expensive, exotic substances "guaranteed" to banish acne, erase wrinkles, rewind the aging process, and make us beautiful. But which products and procedures actually work? What causes common dermatological problems and what do researchers and clinicians know about what our skin really needs? From one of the foremost experts on skin care comes the first science-based resource to explore, in layperson's terms, the full range of dermatological conditions, remedies, and treatments. From infants to octogenarians, from curing acne to avoiding skin cancer, The Comprehensive Guide to Skin Care: From Acne to Wrinkles, What to Do (And Not Do) to Stay Healthy and Look Your Best explains the facts, deflates the hype, and gives readers the information they need to be good caretakers of their skin and smart consumers of skin care products. A practicing clinician for over two decades, Dr. Rebecca Campen organizes the guide around the types of questions commonly heard in the dermatology office. Coverage moves from basic principles of good skin care to descriptions of effective cosmetic procedures. One complete section focuses on advertising claims, revealing that many inexpensive products are actually more effective than their higher-priced counterparts. Campen also provides a blueprint that anyone can use to develop their personal skin care program. The concluding section looks at new directions in skin research, as well as the latest products and procedures.
