Book Review: The Mind-Beauty Connection: 9 Days to Reverse Stress, Aging and Reveal More Youthful, Beautiful Skin (Free Press, 2008) by Amy Weschler, M.D.
Author Amy Weschler is one of only two physicians in the United States board certified in both dermatology and psychiatry. She is also a member of the RealAge Scientific Advisory Board.
Following in the recent tradition of whole-body medicine, Dr. Weschler has identified the correlation between health, aging skin, and the mind in her new book. All of these factors play a part in how we look and feel. As a doctor, the most common skin problems she sees are premature aging and adult acne, both of which are frequently caused by stress and exhaustion.
Key points of The Mind-Beauty Connection:
* 70-80% of our health and longevity is up to us.
* Skin cells need water, oxygen, vitamins, nutrients.
* Cosmetics are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
* The only proven wrinkle-reducers and age fighters are retinoids.
* "A good moisturizer will do more for you than drinking 20 gallons of water a day." (See pp. 31 for necessary ingredients.)
* Americans have about 50 minor stress attacks each day.
* Stress affects the mind, body, skin, and aging.
* Eat: fruits & vegetables, nuts, seeds, olive oil, lean protein, and whole grains.
The Mind-Beauty Connection addresses what we can do for our skin during each decade, skin cancer, sunscreens, sugar consumption and its relation to wrinkles, liver spots, sun damage, acne, tattoo removal, etc... Likewise Dr. Weschler explores and explains natural at-home and more advanced treatments.

I didn't feel like the book was designed to sell an expensive product line (she doesn't have a product line at all), nor did it chastise the reader for history that couldn't be changed.
Dr. Wechsler outlines positive steps for improving your skin, but I suspect these steps will relieve stress and improve your life as a whole.
(The first review for this book gives a solid outline of the material covered in the book, so I will not add to that here.)
The chapters on stress and hormones as well as advice on how to cope with stress make this book a winner for me and have given new insights and HOPE!!!

This book is really just about eating right, getting enough sleep and not being stressed. Also sort of meandered all over without a cohesive story. Read morePublished 18 months ago by CarolynP
