The tips in this book is very general - and they are probably nothing you don't already know... always use sun screen, drink lots of water, eat a balance diet and exercise, use products that are gentle to your skin. And what's really annoying is every other page there is a patient's endorsement of the author/doctor's own line of skin care products. I've learned nothing new from this book.

This book is basically a sales pitch for the author's own line of skin care products. There is some good information in the book, but it could have been better organized and the author could have given more information about products available at the local drugstore instead of pushing her own products every other page.

I read this book because I was at a loss for why my skin had taken a turn for the worse. I had always had healthy, radiant skin and all of the sudden I was getting breakouts, dry patches, oily patches, and noticeable sun damage despite my use of SPF 30 each day before putting on my makeup. I am only 28-year-old and want my face to continue to look young and radiant instead of going downhill, so I read the advice in this book and although most of it is common knowledge, it reminded me of some things that I had forgotten. The simple CEAMP system reminds me daily how to properly care for my skin without cutting any corners, and I have noticed a HUGE difference in the past month of following the advice outlined. My wrinkles and pores are minimized, my dry patches are gone, my oily patches are gone, my two age spots are less noticeable, and my skin looks and feels clear, healthy, radiant, and soft. I even cut down on the products I was using on my skin, which is saving me money! I now cleanse with Cetaphil face cleanser each morning and night, use an alpha hydroxy toner, and then moisturize with a Vit A/Retinol lotion at night and with an SPF lotion during the day. The book also recommends using vitamin lotions (Vit C and E), but I get enough of this in my diet that I don't need to apply it topically. Also, the book recommends both moisturizing and protecting with SPF, but I just do this in one step to save time since I'm a busy mom and student. Great book! If I had more money, I would be tempted to try her product line, too :)

The elbow test draws you into the book. I like that the authors makes a statement that they are not trying to push anything "that haven't been thoroughly tested" p12. This book talks about everything i.e. anti-aging creams, exfoliation, scar prevention for nicks and cuts, and skin cancer. There are topics for men too which is rare in topics discussing skin. Additionally, on p76 Parabens is mentioned in regards to reading the labels, but I was unclear of the authors' opinion if it is good for your face or not. I just noticed that more and more products are purposely mentioning "parabens-free" on their labels. This book was copyrighted in 2007 and IMO that it is a missed opportunity that parabens was mentioned briefly in this book.

Overall, it has been a year since I read he book and I used a few ideas which has changed the way my skin feels since the first time I took the elbow test.

The intro states that the author is a practicing plastic surgeon, so I figured this book would lean towards artificial, quick fix remedies. To my surprise, she backs her information with a lot of nature-based ideas. I love this book!
