Smart Face by Susan Goodman

If you want to have beautiful and healthy skin and are tired of spending money searching for that "magic potion," Smart Face will give you the inside track to saving money and saving face--regardless of your age.

With the sound medical and consumer-product advice in this book, you'll be able to read between the lines of beauty-product advertisements and know what to believe and what not to believe. Dr. Goodman also explains why the most expensive skin-care products are not always the best.
