And as for the book itself: Invaluable material for anyone interested in getting more knowledgeable about skin of color and how it should be treated. A great starter book for getting oriented to the difference in the range of skin types represented by the Fitzpatrick Scale. For the consumer, I think this book will give them more information on how to make better choices for thier skin health. For the professional, I think it will help them get thier head wrapped around this topic in some majorly meaningful ways. Just enough technical information for guidance, just enough layman's terms to make it relatable to every day people.
I'm very grateful that i was able to get this book at this price and in such a excellent condition. I hope to order more books from this seller.

The information contained in the book is very informative and to the point. The information and advice given is sound and up to date. It is also news about groundbreaking "new procedures specifically for people of color."

It's not always about the outside. Sometimes it's just knowing that you are doing everything you can to ensure your skin is healthy and radiant regardless of blemishes problems or conditions of the skin.
The chapters are arranged in sections. They start out with an introduction usually showcasing a specific request from someone who wrote in asking for help and advice. So the information is real time. After the introduction the next section is "Why it Happens." Then it goes into "Remedies" and explains the different procedures of what has or has not worked. After remedies they provide "A Doctor's Guide" where applicable; which explains the different kinds of medical and dermatological procedures available today along with new ground being broken for exploration of how to care for and treat skin of color.
