Now, Amy Wechsler, MD shows you how to de-stress your skin and take years -- years -- off your face.
In 9 days.
Liking the way you look is vital to your health and happiness. But that's not easy when life runs at warp speed -- you're simultaneously coping with ever-increasing demands: dependent kids, aging parents, or both; shopping; cooking; laundry; money pressures; and more, more, more. Good bet you're superstressed, tightly wound, sleep-deprived -- and it shows.
Sure, but your thirties you've accumulated the first signs of normal aging: crow's feet, a bit of saf, some broken capillaries. But stress aging -- how the madness of modern life affects your physical features inside and out -- is today's biggest skin and health challenge.
Happily, stress aging is very reversible. And it takes only a few days. While you may never be able to totally turn off all the pressure (if only!), Dr. Wechsler has plenty of combination strategies -- from her own favorite stress buster to her number one wrinkle reverser -- to help you turn back the aging effects of tension and time. She'll also teach you how to slow down and, to some degree, reverse the natural aging process. This is your guide to feeling, looking, and living young.
In her book, she shows you how to:
Find out your SkinAge with a groundbreaking test that reveals how old (or young!) you really book Personalize a 9-day renewal plan that's right for your face, wallet, and psyche Understand the different cosmetic procedures and products available today Adopt a mind-beauty regimen that will keep your skin -- correction: your whole body -- looking and feeling terrific -- not just for now, but for life.
The mind-beauty connection is powerful and can dramatically affect how well -- and how fast -- you age. The rewards for soling it go far beyond a quick fix. They're transforming. You'll not only look better, you'll also sleep better, feel better, and likely lose unwanted weight as you begin to feel healthier, less stress, and more alive.

The renowned dermatologist's easy-to-follow, quick-results program to treat skin both inside and out, using widely available products
Since 1972, Dr. Howard Murad has been studying the effects of the environment, nutrition, and lifestyle on skin and creating a skin-care program to slow the aging process. The Murad Method is the result of his three decades of clinical experience treating more than 40,000 men and women as well as independent research proving the effectiveness of the program. His unique approach to skin care combines external products and internal supplements in a simple regimen that will improve the texture and look of anyone's skin.
This book clarifies the science behind what Dr. Murad believes is the next generation of skin care, an approach based on what he calls the Water Principle. Rather than relying on a single "miracle" ingredient, this breakthrough program includes a combination of exfoliants, polyphenols and other antioxidants, amino acids, fatty acids, and anti-inflammatory agents that enhance skin hydration.
The Water Principle is the foundation of Dr. Murad's unique system for repairing and rejuvenating your skin. The skin is your body's largest organ, and The Murad Method is the first book to show you how its appearance directly reflects your overall health.
The Murad Method has been clinically proven to:
- boost hydration
- reduce wrinkles
- increase elasticity
- improve sun protection
By following a regimen that suits your skin type and requires just five minutes, morning and night, for five weeks, you will not only counter the damage that causes aging, but actually reverse the visible signs of aging and reduce wrinkles.
Simple, clear charts show you how to customize an anti-aging regimen for your skin type and special concerns. You can assemble your own program, using either Murad or name-brand products. There is an extensive listing of products that contain the key ingredients Dr. Murad recommends in his anti-aging prescription to guide you.
The information in this book will change the way you think about your skin--and give you the tools you need to make your skin look younger in five weeks.
