Overview


From one of the world's leading dermatologists, a major new guide to skin health and beauty that helps readers look ten years younger without surgery

Renowned dermatologist Jeffrey Dover and his expert skincare advice have been featured everywhere from the Today show, Good Morning America, and CNN to the New York Times, Vogue, Self, and many other publications. Known for providing high-end yet affordable skincare advice and products, Dr. Dover is the creator of the highly successful Skin Effects line. Now Dr. Dover shares his secrets with the rest of us. The Youth Equation first proves that it's not people's real age that matters, it's their skin's virtual age, or SVA, that reflects the way their complexion is behaving. The book then reveals Dr. Dover's unique program for looking ten years younger--at any age.

The Youth Equation includes a revealing quiz to calculate readers' SVA scores. Dr. Dover then walks readers through the world of skincare ingredients to create a customized do-at-home plan anyone at any age can follow simply by picking up a few products at the local drugstore. Dover's comprehensive product guide includes many popular brands and shows which cleansers, treatment creams, and sunscreens really live up to their promises, offering options to suit a range of skin types and budgets. For those who want to jumpstart their progress with a more aggressive approach, Dr. Dover demystifies injectable fillers, Botox, lasers and light sources, anti-cellulite treatments, chemical peels, cosmetic surgical procedures, and more with a combination of intelligence, warmth, and refreshing candor. The Youth Equation is a fresh and indispensable guide to better skin health and beauty.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

* Ever wonder if Botox, Restylane, or Olay Regenerist serum works? Boston dermatologist Dover tries to answer all of the questions surrounding the latest and greatest in youth-enhancing dermatological treatments. He includes a quiz to determine your skin's ""virtual age"" and presents his home-treatment plans for cleaning skin and treating skin damage. He discusses commonsense items like the effects on the skin's appearance of smoking, sun damage, and a healthy diet. Be aware that Dover does include his own skin-care line (CVS Pharmacy's Skin Effects) in his list of recommended products; however, the conflict of interest this might normally cause seems to be negated by the breadth of his list of recommended products, including low-priced items like Dove soap and high-priced La Prairie, and his insistence throughout the book that you don't have to use expensive products or office procedures to have good-looking skin. For those interested, this is a nice take on all of the anti-aging treatments and products available and a good overview of how skin ages and how to care for it. Recommended for public libraries.—Elizabeth Williams, Washoe Cty. Lib. Syst., Reno, NV (Publishers Weekly, December 15, 2008)
