Caring for one's skin is an important part of maintaining physical and mental well-being, at all stages of life. In this book Professor Rona MacKie explains clearly how the skin is structured and how it works, before giving information on healthy skin and the prevention of skin disease frombabyhood to old age. She emphasizes why it is important to protect the skin throughout life from excessive exposure to the sun, and gives information and advice about the commoner disorders of skin, hair, and nails. There is also a chapter on what it is reasonable to expect from cosmetics andhair-care products. The book has been written for anyone with an interest in keeping their own - or their family's - skin healthy. No specialist scientific or medical knowledge is needed to understand the text.
