It's not your age that's causing half of those lines and crinkles. It's your life.
Now, Amy Wechsler, MD shows you how to de-stress your skin and take years -- years -- off your face.
In 9 days.
Liking the way you look is vital to your health and happiness. But that's not easy when life runs at warp speed -- you're simultaneously coping with ever-increasing demands: dependent kids, aging parents, or both; shopping; cooking; laundry; money pressures; and more, more, more. Good bet you're superstressed, tightly wound, sleep-deprived -- and it shows.
Sure, but your thirties you've accumulated the first signs of normal aging: crow's feet, a bit of saf, some broken capillaries. But stress aging -- how the madness of modern life affects your physical features inside and out -- is today's biggest skin and health challenge.
Happily, stress aging is very reversible. And it takes only a few days. While you may never be able to totally turn off all the pressure (if only!), Dr. Wechsler has plenty of combination strategies -- from her own favorite stress buster to her number one wrinkle reverser -- to help you turn back the aging effects of tension and time. She'll also teach you how to slow down and, to some degree, reverse the natural aging process. This is your guide to feeling, looking, and living young.
