In her refreshingly smart and insightful book, Forget the Facelift , Dr. Day helps us confront the fact that dealing with life's stress is not easy but basically unavoidable in today's world. She explains how physically and emotionally there are saboteurs at every turn and navigating them is easier with a little professional medical advice as well as some sound ideas on treating yourself better. She gives us examples of how she has helped many of her own patients look years younger even before they had any treatment in her office.
But don't be fooled by the spiritual side of this brilliant doctor; her book is filled with medical and technical answers to questions we all have, written in a way that we can understand and use to our benefit. Understanding the physiology of skin really increases awareness of what damages us and what helps us glow. She lists ingredients to look for in beauty products when faced with the confusing array of choices. In addition, she includes what can cause problems and what her favorites are. She names names - there's no hiding from Dr. Day.
She also provides time saving skin care routines, quick ways to eat healthy meals, an explanation of ingredients, vitamins and supplements allowing you to figure things out on your own. These are all ways Dr. Day helps you become educated in looking great.Read more ›
The title and back cover caption could not be more appropriate. The promise delivers, if you follow the program detailed in this book.
Firstly, Dr. Doris J. Day is one of the few doctors around that is in the medical field for the right reasons. I am fortunate enough to reside in New York City and be a patient in her private practice.
Secondly, Dr. Day believes in good health; physical health being equally important to emotional health--the introduction is entitled, "Beauty isn't only skin-deep." She discusses how the stresses of modern life can substantially take it's toll on one's skin. Sample menus, recipes-for meals and additionally for do-it-yourself skin treatments, facial exercises, fashion tips, and obviously a specific skin regimen and education targeting skin saboteurs are all included in this book!
Thirdly, I don't know too many dermatologists and/or plastic surgeons that don't "over prescribe." Dr. Day is rather conservative, insomuch that she would suggest surgery as an exception rather than the rule, potentially not even as an alternative treatment because it is not necessary.
Good skin does not need to be costly, or overly time consuming. Coincidentally, or rather brilliantly, Dr. Day also has created a skincare line simply called 'Good Skin.' Clean, easy, simple skincare.
Having radiant, glowing skin needn't be complicated, and 'Forget the Facelift' is a testament to that statement.
Style of writing, like an advertisement for some investments, repeats: "I will tell you about ..........later" and similar phrases.
I doubt Dr. Day is at fault, it must be the co-author.
The message is basic and might have been covered in a few pages.
