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.
