Book Summary

Look Ten Years Younger in Days - without Surgery!
From Yale University's dermatological and anti-aging expert Nicholas Perricone, M.D., comes the all-natural program that has already helped thousands---including top Hollywood stars. This antioxidant plan revitalizes your skin from the outside and inside, reducing and effectively erasing wrinkles and blemishes, no matter your skin color or type, no matter your age! Find out about:

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid-lines, wrinkles, under-eye puffiness, acne scars, and enlarged pores can disappear.
  • The Three-Day Diet for Better Skin-special "face-changing" foods visibly change the way you look, in just seventy-two hours
  • Vitamin C Ester-this miracle supplement can heal sun-damaged skin or inflammations by helping your body produce collagen-it firms up sagging skin as well!
  • An Instant Face-lift-DMAE tightens skin almost instantly and offers long-lasting results with continued use. And quickly plumps up lips, too!
  • The Sugar Taboo--simple carbs ravage your skin and speed aging. Find out how to reverse the damage!

Common Skin Problems .... Extraordinary Solutions!
Your skin is as individual as you are: white or brown, oily, dry, prone to breakouts, or easily irritated. Whatever your specific skin concern, cosmeceuticals---vitamin creams and other treatments that provide benefits beyond simple moisturizers---can help. Here's what Dr. Perricone recommends for these common problems:

  • Problem #1-Crow's-feet, Upper Lip Line
    Solution: A form of Vitamin C able to actually penetrate into the skin.
    Discover how it works and where to get it.
  • Problem #2-Dark Under-Eye Shadows
    Solution: An extraordinarily powerful antioxidant available orally or in a topical cream-it can be your miracle-worker.
  • Problem #3-Jowls and Sagging Skin
    Solution: An exciting new nutrient complex that is a true face-lift in a jar.
    In greater strengths, it can lift your thighs too!
  • Problem #4-Dull, Sallow-Looking Skin
    Solution: Alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids-but not all are created equal.
    Discover which one excels at exfoliation.

Chapter 1
Beautiful Skin for Life

Wrinkled, sagging skin is not the inevitable result of growing older. It's a disease, and you can fight it. You can look your best, feel your best, and enjoy beautiful skin and optimum health every day of your life, provided you start right now. And you don't need expensive, invasive plastic surgery to do it. After nearly two decades of scientific research, I have discovered a revolutionary, all-natural approach to preventing the signs of aging by putting nature's most powerful nutrients to work for your skin.

In my dermatology practice in Connecticut, I use cosmeceuticals to treat a whole host of skin problems, from acne, uneven pigment, dark circles, and poor skin tone to fine lines, sagging skin, and loss of radiance---problems that often come with age. My hundreds of patients come from all walks of life, from teenagers to grandfathers, from soccer moms to celebrities, and I'm proud to say that they consistently leave my office with great ...
