Product Description

Review

Without question, the best book I’ve read on skin care.”—Paula Begoun, author of Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me

From the Back Cover

“Without question, The Skin Type Solution is the best book I've read on skin care. Every recommendation made by Dr. Leslie Baumann reflects current, state-of-the-art information and research. Baumann's skin typing profiles are so well organized with precise detail that virtually any reader will be able to identify her type of skin and then choose products that really work. Her recommendations are effective because they are based on science rather than hype and unsubstantiated information found in most books of this nature.”
--Paula Begoun, author of Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Jane Austen "Barb" on March 1 2006
Format: Hardcover
Like many (most?) women, I have spent years (and huge amounts of money) trying to find skin care products for my problematic skin. Advertising is rarely helpful, since most ads contain a lot of hype and very little information.
Dr. Leslie Baumann, a Miami-based dermatologist, classifies skin into 16 categories, depending on whether it is oily or dry, sensitive or not, prone to excessive pigmentation or not, and prone to wrinkling or not. You answer a four-part questionnaire at the beginning of the book to find out which of the 16 categories you fall into, and then turn to the chapter which tells you what to do (and not to do) for your skin type. She tells you which types of products and ingredients will help and which to avoid, and actually names products, from drug-store inexpensive to department-store expensive brands. (For instance, many products which are touted for sensitive skin are only good for dry sensitive skin, which is a disaster if your skin happens to be sensitive and oily).
Dr. Baumann also makes recommendations as to diet and lifestyle (for instance, a low-fat diet will make dry skin worse).
All in all, a terrific book, and one I wish I'd had year ago.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Amy VG TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 17 2007
Format: Paperback
I've been cleansing, toning, moisturizing my face for years and years (my mom worked in the industry and I used to get lots of samples!) but I never stopped to find out which type of skin I had. Now after three kids, my skin looks dry and dull so I picked up this book and I'm glad I did! It's really informative and gives you many suggestions on what you should be doing to care for your skin.
I do agree there isn't much about lifestyle, but the author does suggest staying out of the sun, exercising and eating fruits and veggies. This book is more about finding which skin type you are and finding the right products to buy for the exact type. Most women do use products and I personally think they are important, especially as you get older. The author does give suggestions for low cost products to extremely expensive.
I highly recommend it!

Good book, let me get to know my skin type, and find the suitable products for me, but some statements in the book are not precise. I recommend other readers to search more for your skin types, not only rely on this book

Not a very big book, and 1/16th of it doesn't apply to the reader. Also, many of the products are not available where I am.

1 of 7 people found the following review helpful By L. Park on June 18 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book is basically a product endorsement for the cosmetic industry. It focuses very little on lifestyle and nutrition. Simply put, the book provides endless lists of 'recommended' products on the market which is overwhelming given the choices. It was very disappointing.
