More specifically, it's a book about modern skin problems and their possible causes and management.Do you or your family suffer with - dry, rough or scaly skin?- unexplained morning sneezing and a runny nose?- persistent acne?- limp, lifeless, stringy or greasy hair?- dark rings around the eyes?- recurrent tinea?- disturbed sleep?All these problems are closely related to our modern environment - we spend a lot of time in excessively dry air, are often overheated and are obsessed with cleanliness. These three factors are responsible for conditions ranging from persistent acne to eczema and psoriasis. Good Skin explains why and provides simple, safe, non-invasive and inexpensive solutions.
