UPDATE 2019:  

What is the real evidence that DNA Repair works in skin?  Pretty good, judging from hundreds of subjects in clinical studies.  See my just published review https://www.dovepress.com/six-critical-questions-for-dna-repair-enzymes-in-skincare-products-a-r-peer-reviewed-article-CCID 

How does the brain judge beauty?  How do we decieve others and ourselves about our personal attractiveness?  Check out my new review Perception and Decption: Human Beauty and the Brain at https://www.mdpi.com/2076-328X/9/4/34

From a GoodRead's review:

"This is a well written book that will help you understand how and why your skin care purchases matter.  Moreover, you will learn how to protect your skin.  Readers of any age will find information of value to their health.  During a recent visit to a Plastic Surgeon's office to ask a few questions...you guessed it, this book was on the physician's shelf."
