The Art of Looking Younger
The dynamics of skin conditioning explained in a revolutionary guide to a youthful appearance
by Bedford Shelmire, Jr. M.D.
Publisher:  St. Martin's Press
Copyright 1973

Beauty is only skin deep, but often so is age.  A person looks older because his or her skin becomes dry, wrinkled, spotted and coarse.  But some people look much older than their age, while others seem to defy the years by keeping the bloom of youth.  Dr. Shelmire, in this revolutionary book, explains the dynamics of skin condition:  why some people have genetically youthful skin, how others unknowingly destroy their skin's youthfulness, how it is possible to prevent skin aging or correct it, simply and inexpensively, in your own home.

Dr. Shelmire begins by examining the scientific basis of preventive and corrective skin care, describing the structural changes skin goes through as it ages and explaining how these can be delayed or prevented completely.  He goes on to discuss skin care in detail, concentrating on what an individual can do at home, recommending specific products to be used and specifying which combination of ingredients and techniques best suits different types of skin.  Proving that effective skin care needn't be expensive, Dr. Shelmire suggests readily available substitutes for many high-priced products in addition to personal skin care, he discusses ways in which physicians and dermatologists can help your appearance, including relief of hair caused by bodily changes.  By following the advice contained in this invaluable guide, anyone can keep or gain a more youthful appearance and possibly save money in the process.  If it's true that you're as young as you feel, it's also good to be able to feel as young as you look.
