One of our common, everyday beauty essentials can often be the most perplexing. We all have our colorful collections of eyeshadows, lip glosses, and fancy lotions & potions. While they’re fun and typically what we spend the most money on by the time we finish adding up all the receipts– they’re not the most important things in our beauty regime. Our skin is the foundation of it all, and without it– we are literally nothing. If you’re battling any skincare issues (honey, we ALL are), the solution isn’t to run out and buy a full-coverage foundation. You wouldn’t patch a dam with a bandage! So first things first, we have to arm ourselves with knowledge about the largest and most powerful organ in our bodies– our skin. Even seasoned Beauty Junkies can overlook it when it’s so easy to be distracted by all of those compacts with all the pretty colors inside!
I already own some fabulous books written by the industry’s leading experts and refer to them more than I ever imagined. So you know when the new book, “Write Your Skin a Prescription for Change” hit my mailbox, I ate it up! Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields already have a popular range of skincare products, and they’ve co-authored the title to help put the answers to your most common concerns and worries in your own two hands, in one place! I found the book to be incredibly thorough, and detailed just enough without confusing medical jargon that leaves us just as dumbfounded as when we began. It’s kind of like having a direct hotline to two of the most sought-after dermatologists in our generation. Could you imagine? “Hi Dr. Fields! How are you? That’s nice. Now I have question about these blackheads showing up only on the right side of my face. Can you help me? I’m freaking out over here!”
“Write Your Skin a Prescription for Change” covers not only the basics, but also takes you beyond so that you’re empowered to turn things around before it’s too late. We’re more in control of the future of our faces than we think we are! I’d rather read the book 1000 times than have to make a phone call that goes something like this: “Hi Dr. Rodan. I need for you to refer me to a great plastic surgeon, like yesterday! I’m only 50 and I look like the Crypt Keeper!” Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields get two thumbs up from me with this one.
