Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every woman deserves to feel beautiful. But what does it mean to feel truly beautiful on the outside and the inside? In The Beauty Prescription, physicians Debra Luftman and Eva Ritvo have redefined beauty around a groundbreaking concept: The Beauty-Brain Loop. In this revealing, candid look at the science and spirit of beauty, Drs. Debra and Eva give women of all ages a prescription for mastering the Beauty-Brain Loop, including:
  • How to see beauty in everything around you
  • Making time to get fit and healthy
  • How a kind, loving, positive demeanor makes you more attractive
  • Staying beautiful in times of crisis
  • Understanding beauty products and cosmetic procedures
  • Creating a lifetime beauty plan

Every stage of the Loop-Outer Beauty, Inner Beauty, Health, and Environment-has the power to enhance your attractiveness, self-esteem, and well-being . . . if you know how to make the most of each one.

Packed with personal stories from Beauty Buddies, tips on physical and psychological wellness, wisdom from top professionals in the beauty industry, and much more, The Beauty Prescription is an owner's manual for every woman who is ready to move beyond today's narrow definition of beauty. If you're ready to become your most beautiful on the inside as well as the outside, Drs. Debra and Eva have the right medicine for you.

Review:

"Dermatologist Luftman and psychiatrist Ritvo, long-time best friends and 'beauty buddies,' dispatch beauty and self-realization advice from their respective areas of expertise in this breezy, effective self-help. 'How to make yourself 20 percent more beautiful in just a few seconds?' Stop focusing on a static mirror image, which is not ever how other people see you. They shrug off magazine-cover standards and focus instead on 'the most effective beauty regimen in the world... unstoppable, radiant self-esteem' resulting from self-worth and health. Count-your-blessings self-help standards take up a fair amount of space, but psychological concepts behind 'inner beauty' ('the beauty-brain loop') are well-explained. Beauty specifics include a useful guide to skin care treatment organized by type and age, and an 80-question self-assessment quiz. Citing trends that Americans increasingly find woman over 50 as beautiful as those under 30, they assess that Oprah-level beauty maintenance costs at least $500,000 between the ages of 40 and 80; they also consider the pros and cons of cosmetic surgery. This guide from two medical doctors is light and efficient, but gains little fresh perspective from its pedigree." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
