Interesting for those looking for an easy method to better their skin,
This review is from: Younger: The Breakthrough Anti-Aging Method for Radiant Skin (Kindle Edition)
Dr Lancer is a famous dermatologist and in his book he prescribes his own method for healthy and younger skin.
The program starts simple enough, with 3 steps in the morning and 3 in the evening that's easy to follow. He even proposes products to use for cleansing & moisturizing that fall in every price range: expensive, average and affordable. I liked the fact that most of these products are widely available even in Europe, and are indeed affordable to anyone (Roc, Clinique and L'Oreal are included in many lists). I also liked the way he addressed various skin conditions like acne and sensitive skin, and explained what happens beneath the surface in those skin types.
Things got a bit more complicated when extra anti-aging ingredients were introduced in the program; I believe the time needed to apply all these creams and the complexity involved, are a bit of a put off for many working women. As for sensitive skins such as mine, using more than a couple of creams like he suggests (especially AHAs and Glucolic acids) I think is bound to create problems sooner rather than later, as personal experience has shown me.
I found his suggestions for handling stress and generally following a healthier lifestyle very interesting; there were a few very practical and simple suggestions that are easy to follow.
Most parts were very interesting and I liked the fact that he based his suggestions and proposals on scientific data. However, some parts were way too detailed and scientific for most readers.
Does the method work? I don't know yet, but Dr Lancer did convince me to buy a good scrub and start trying it. I'll update with the results in a few days.

How do you find the 'Polish' method so far? :)

Unfortunately, I had to stop it :( I found out that using a scrub on a daily basis + a glucolic cream every second day, aggravated my sensitive skin and even gave me a mild case of acne. I'm using some very mild products for the past 6 months & scrub only once a week, and my face is back to normal at last. Unfortunately, I'd not recommend following the advice on this book without having a dermatologist nearby, especially if you're skin's sensitive or problematic.
