Format: Hardcover
Dr. Doris Day promised a younger me in 2 weeks with just simple lifestyle changes. Until I saw the results first hand, I doubted the possibility, as anyone would. I was surprised to find that these changes were not painful resolutions or deprivation; they felt more like self indulgences.

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.

Although Dr. Day is a dermatologist, I must say the information in her book was mundane and certainly not very new information. What was informative was her section on rejuvenation techniques that are presently available. Her focus on attitude, diet, makeup,and style brought nothing new to the table. Her section on hair loss was inadequate. This information should have been a 25 page pamphlet but certainly not a book. I will commend her for not hawking her skin care line too heavily like others have done (does Perricone ring a bell?). Just not very revolutionary.

Format: Hardcover
"Subtract Years From Your Appearance Change Your Life," proclaims the author of the book 'Forget the Facelift.'

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.

Dr. Day's book can best be described as inspiring. It not only does justice to your skin (yes, it really will look that much better if you follow her recommendations), but it is guaranteed to also change your life for the better. Her three 'R's (read the book), nutritional and facial product recommendations, as well as so many other valuable pearls, made a huge difference in the appearance of my skin in just two weeks, not to mention creating a happier medium for myself. This book is highly recommended, and is one of the best on the market that I've read for benefiting one's overall health, with results of looking like way more than a million bucks!

The author, Doris Day MD was on SIRIUS RADIO. Doctor radio. Wanting to learn more of her what she had to say, I bought the book. I've picked it up and put it down a number of times.
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.

Worst book of vanity filled fluff I have read in a while. She lost me when she said seeing a patient with chipped nail polish made her think they should get their priorities straight. Is this book for Real Housewives or real women?
