Handbook of Cosmetic Skin Care

New or Used: 3 copies from $103.67
The line between cosmetic products and medications is getting blurred in recent years, with many cosmetics nearly taking on the properties of medications. Even professionals in the field can find it difficult to assess the validity of claims and the suitability of products. This handbook is meant to clear up that confusion. This fully illustrated and highly readable text discusses the main types of treatment available for the skin, nails and hair, and their mechanisms of action. Handbook of Cosmetic Skin Care provides a factual basis by which to judge all the new products and claims. All those wishing to broaden their knowledge of cosmetics and skin care, or those already working in the beauty and skin care industry, will find this a clear and simple guide to the medical and scientific aspects of skin, nail and hair care.
