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.
