Dr. Yael Adler introduces us to the mysterious spaces of the skin and reveals its functions and the complex tasks it performs. The author debunks myths, sheds light on the reasons of the most common skin problems, and provides answers to a number of topical questions based on recent dermatological studies:
How do we treat our skin at different times in our lives?
Why is the way we live more important for the health of our skin than any expensive cosmetic?
Why tanning beds and tattoos damage our health?
What are the consequences of excessive hygiene?
Why does sex prettify the skin and stress and negative emotions make it sick?
Written with love, this book is not a medical reading with pre-written prescriptions. It provides popular and systematic knowledge and invites us to UNDERSTAND our skin and to take care of its health.
