The way to a healthier skin
The way to a healthier skinHelena Nyblom, illustrated by Catharina Tham
What can we do in order to take care of our skin?
What should we eat?
How dangerous is the sun?
And what help is available for skin problems such as rosacea, acne, eczema and psoriasis?
In this book, Dr Helena Nyblom gives an overview of the skin’s structure, function and ageing process. The latest research is introduced so that these findings can be put into practice in everyday life. The emphasis is on what the individual can do in order to enjoy good health and to have healthy, more beautiful skin, following your own genetic make-up.
Medical knowledge is combined with aesthetic skin care. We learn which vitamins, minerals and fats build up the structure of the skin, how different hormones affect the function of the skin, and what effect alcohol and cigarettes have on the freshness of the skin, and on premature ageing.
In conclusion, various medical treatments using lasers and light are considered. The book can be summarised by saying that a healthy body gives the necessary preconditions for healthy skin.
