by Wilma F. Bergfeld Shelagh R. Masline

In the fifth of a series of health care books written for women by female physicians, the head of the departments of dermatology and pathology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation offers professional and practical advice on the care and treatment of the skin, hair and nails. Diet, skin care at different ages, cancer, infections and cosmetic products are among the topics covered. Medical advice, e. g. , how to cope with varicose veins during pregnancy, is included, as well as information on choosing over-the-counter shampoos, soaps and cosmetics based on skin and hair types. Inclusive and easy to use, this volume addresses skin care issues for women of color and any certain age. Its advocacy of sound skin care habits makes it particularly valuable for young women. An appendix and a glossary are included.
