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."
