KIRKUS REVIEW

A companion volume to New Hope for Your Hair (p. 257, 1960), this reads with the same informative ease. Dr. Lubowe covers the field with the remark that for maximum efficiency and good appearance, the skin requires an adequate and nutritious diet, the proper use of mild soap and water, beneficial cosmetics, fresh air, sunshine and an untroubled mind"". Down to particulars, he describes the functioning of the largest organ of the body, discusses diet, hormones, allergies, aging, eczema, and the more serious ills of psoriasis, lupus erythematosus, syphilis. Other agents of attack are insects, fungus, bacteria, viruses, poisonous, plants. Treatment through such means as cleansing (""Cleanliness is Godliness""), diet, plastic surgery for again, electrolysis for the hirsute are covered; the question of allergens and hormones in cosmetics aired. The appendix lists various diets and a biological food chemistry chart. Informally authoritative.
