Great book. I am a 33 year old male who took a sudden interest in trying to fix my complexion and reduce sun damage. I was astounded to see how extremely limited information there is on the internet. If researching something like Vitamin C, it would just say a few lines and the rest would be product promotion. I found Reddit to be an excellent starting resource, but rather than clicking through a hundred pages, it is far better to just do yourself a favour and purchase this book. The cost of this book is nothing in comparison to what you would spend in a year on creams and so on.
Things I liked: very easy to read, quite comprehensive (I learnt A LOT that, particularly information on difference between UVA and UVB - that information alone to me is worth hundreds of dollars!)
Things I didn't like: still confused about sunlight vs Vitamin D amounts, information was repeated, but that's due to the book organised based on the condition. A nerd like me ould also like a bit more scientific information on some of the recommendations, but I think the amount contained was perfect for the average person.
All in all a very factual book that dispels the myths and tells you exactly what you need for your routine. Absolutely worth the money
Good, easy to understand advice that cuts through the marketing hype so common when it comes to skin care. I read this book in one afternoon and found it easy to read and informative. The author has a really nice way of writing and explains the complex topic of skincare in a sensible and informative format. While the recommendations are more UK based it’s not hard to take the information given and adapt to different markets. The use of sunscreen is heavily promoted and so it should. As a child sporting pale English skin and growing up in Australia I have certainly managed to damage my skin! I’m paying for that now as I get closer to 50 😕 I enjoyed the educational content of the book and know I will return to it over and over again as I navigate the world of skin care and treatments to enable me to undo perhaps a bit of damage. Highly recommend if you want education that will propagate confidence and maybe save yourself a lot of money on products that just plain don’t deliver.
