If you are looking for a great skincare guide this is the book to read! Mary Duerden’s upbeat, warm, and down-to-earth communication style evoke feelings of talking to a trusted friend. Filled with anecdotes and sprinkled with humor she brings to life the journey we as women go through as our body matures--notice I didn’t say age ;-). I laughed at her analogy of the changing roles of estrogen, androgen, and testosterone!
Mary offers practical advice for any budget and time limitation. She stresses the importance of each woman being her own skincare advocate as she guides us to resources where we can find the answers we need to make informed decisions.
In this book she discusses a broad spectrum of skin care routines (daily, weekly, and monthly) involving: cleansing techniques, serum, eye cream, toner, moisturizing, sunscreen, lip care, exfoliation, masks, eyebrow upkeep, professional facials, chemical peels, led lights, dermaplane, and the effects of menopause, disease, cancer treatments, and stress on our skin.
Mary is both encouraging and informative as she explains the whys and how’s of good skincare. She is brand neutral as she details the different types of products available. She discusses how to choose the best routine/product for our own skincare needs. She gives reasons for avoiding certain ingredients as well as noting important ones to look for in taking care of our skin. She also includes websites which have helpful information for understanding the effects that particular ingredients may have on our skin/health.
