A wrinkle is not just a wrinkle. Your Skin, Younger explores the connection between the visible signs of aging and internal health. Beyond sun exposure, the aging of human skin is dictated by stress, nutrition, sleep and lifestyle. This cutting edge book revives the diet-lifestyle teachings of dermatology elders from the 1930s and 1940s and proves them right with modern scientific results. The book also explores the latest research on internal and topical methods to feed the skin with protective nutrients.
Your Skin, Younger presents clear, scientific evidence of the skin’s aging process and how it is directly impacted by diet, stress, intestinal function, and even cooking techniques. Written by top dermatology and nutrition experts, the book reveals what you can do—naturally—to reverse bad effects for nourished, younger-looking skin.
Loaded with delicious recipes, creative food preparation techniques, stress-busters, exercise and personal training tips, and other habits that promote sound, restful, restorative sleep and better overall skin care, this is the one-stop resource for expert, need-to-know advice.
Your Skin, Younger also exposes many skin care myths and the major chemical offenders in cosmetics and topical skincare products, as well as what to look for and what to avoid in oral dietary supplements and topical ingredients. The book takes a holistic approach to healthy skin with a focus on diet, supplementation, and stress reduction techniques that are fresh and exciting and easy to follow.
