Great book

My wife like this book ,she is one who love everything about new science and skin care tips I recommended

Good book on skin care, but misses some topics and not entirely unbiased.

I normally would never read a book like this, but I picked it up at the library looking for some information on how to deal with the major allergies to sunscreen of my daughter. The good: More science to back up claims than most books on skin care. Points out a lot of the hype in skin care products. Specific recommendations by brand, and not all of them are costly products. Best description of how sunscreen actually works and how to use it that I have seen. Excellent outline of ingredients and what they actually do in products. Good description of skin cancer. The bad: Need a chapter on eczema and how to deal with it. Acne is covered but eczema is not. Need photos of things like skin cancers so that we can get a visual image. The ugly: Hypes his own products more than I like, almost every suggested list has a Remergent product listed.

fabulous book

I have my own skin care line and this book validates my ideas about skin care. Hugely informative...and although Yarosh is biased (his line is Remergent which is recommended) I felt like he was thorough, with solid research. A must read for anyone who wants to separate hype from effectiveness in cosmetic sales.

Helpful information on skin care

This book offers some good information on how to take care of your skin, from what you eat to what products to use. I like that the author offers specific ingredients for which he believes there is scientific support for their effectiveness, and he also offers his thoughts on what ingredients are mere unproven hype. I also like that he mentions specific products that he believes are effective, such as Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towlettes. Readers considering the book should also be aware that he has a brand of products he sells and those products are featured in the book as well. There were some inconsistent comments in the book, like he starts one chapter by saying, "Cleansers and toners are the least glamorous products in the cosmetic cabinet but are the true workhorses of skin care." But then later in that same chapter, he says, "Whatever toners are called, and whatever their intended use, chances are very slim--unless you are using natural soaps and have hard water--that you need one." ??? Also, he notes at one point that you should steer clear of products that advertise they are "preservative free." I understand the point - those products can spoil more quickly - but if you're willing to pay attention to expiration dates, I think preservative-free products are still okay to use. It's really a matter of personal preference. In any event, I thought the author offered some good advice on steps to take and products to use to achieve radiant skin.
