    I am a person who, because of allergies and sensitive skin, has not used many cosmetics or skin care regimens for several decades. Instead, I have been limited to avoidance of pollutants and radiation, eating healthy foods and getting enough sleep and exercise. A couple months ago, I heard an interview with Dr. Youn on the radio and decided to purchase the book. Here is what happened. I selected skin care products in my price range to experiment with Retinol at night, antioxidants under a zinc oxide sun block during the day, and Vitamin B3/Matrixyl/hyaluronic acid/ceramides at will. The selections were based upon learning concepts in the book so I could try Dr. Youn’s recommendations or make educated choices in the market place. I used the products on my face, neck and hands. After about a week, my face and neck became irritated and I was able to determine that the problem was just a touch of glycolic acid in the Retinol cream. I switched to a Retinol/hyaluronic acid formulation and the irritation was greatly diminished. After about five weeks, my face and neck looked hydrated and healthier, which was nice. The surprise was my hands. They looked less bony, plumper and more even in coloration. YES!

    The icing on the cake was when a relative of mine was having problems with skin tears on one hand. We tried the following: At night I would place a small amount of Retinol/glycolic acid cream on the back of his hands. In the morning, I would apply an antioxidant serum over the backs of both of this person’s freshly washed hands. The skin tear was healing faster than usual which pleased my relative. A few days later, he went to his dermatologist on another matter and his doctor asked him about his skin tear. When the doctor found out this intervention was helpful, he told my relative to “keep on doing it”.

    This was an easy and very fun book to read. I loved all of his non-surgical suggestions for products and treatments. Many of the products he mentions can just be purchased on Amazon. This book validated many things I have already known and do as a part of my body-care, but also had many things and products that I did not know about. Overall a 10 out of 10–I’d definitely recommend this to others.

    Anthony Youn did an excellent job of writing this book in a way that would make sense to just about anyone. I didn’t expect him to be so matter-of-fact and down to earth, but it was refreshing. This book is not going to tell you that you should get plastic surgery. In fact, I felt more self-assured after finishing it, knowing that the pressure I often feel to achieve or maintain some type of faux perfection is largely influenced by celebrity fandom and popular culture. He does a great job explaining how the media affects our view of self, and also suggests plenty of practical and alternative solutions to plastic surgery. I’ve since stocked up on skincare products that actually work for me and feel a lot better about the prospect of slowing the aging process as I enter my mid-20’s.

    Really excellent book. I have read many articles about plastic surgery procedures. This is the first book where all of the procedures get honestly discussed. This doctor was very open about what works, and what does not. The BEST part – he talked about over the counter products that WORK! This alone made it worth the cost. Saw this doc on PBS, makes things clear and easy to understand!

    I have read this book several times. Each time I find something great. I have met Dr. Youn. He performed the grin lift on me, a procedure he talks about in the book. He is a very honest and kind soul and he really knows his stuff. Everything that I tried from this book has worked. I would recommend this book to everybody. It is filled with information that anyone could use . Buy this book , you won’t be disappointed .

    A thorough, well mapped out tool for all ages. Tried some of the facial creams and serums suggested with happy results. Had to find them online because they weren’t easily available in my area but that was no problem. I first saw Dr. Youn on PBS and enjoyed the program enough to order the book. It will be a great reference for other areas of aging as time passes. At 52, I found many sound, sensible solutions to aging and staying healthy.
