The Age Fix by Dr. Anthony Youn got me off to a great start to meeting my reading goals.
About the Author
Anthony Youn, MD is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with sixteen years of experience in his practice. "He is known to be the expert in looking younger with or without plastic surgery." Dr. Youn has been named as one of the United State's top plastic surgeons by many well known media outlets.
The Age Fix is the latest addition to many of Dr. Youn's well respected publications and I'm excited to have gotten my hands on his book before its release to the public on April 5, 2016.
This book contains a wealth of knowledge, from cover to cover I was hooked from beginning to end. The book doesn't come off lecture-like similar to school textbooks. Dr. Youn speaks to you through the book. Imagine being best friends with a plastic surgeon - someone who we can run to when we have all sorts of aesthetic questions and concerns. We can pretend that Dr. Youn is our best friend :)
From beauty myths, skincare, aging, plastic surgery, health and beauty routines, Dr. Youn's got you covered from head to toe. He's included DIY recipes, makeup tips, and emphasizes on a few skincare advice that we know we should follow but sometimes we happen to neglect to do so.
As I was reading through the book, I found myself so inspired by the things Dr. Youn shared (while I got to the Acne section in the book and he started to talk about Blackheads, I ran to the bathroom and slapped on a Biore Pore Strip - recommended by Dr. Youn of course, and he also shares a DIY alternative! Another time when I was reading through the book, I stopped and put together a DIY face mask.
Dr. Youn discusses options if one considers plastic surgery and gives you his professional thoughts and advice backing up what he says with a reasonable explanation to understand the importance of the topic and why a certain option may or may not be right for you. Ultimately, the option is yours to choose. Regardless of your decision - he inspires you to love yourself inside and out.
Not going to lie, there's been days here and there where I would skip using products and simply use moisturizer. After reading The Age Fix, I was inspired to take my skincare routine more seriously again so I sat down at my vanity table and went through my stash of skincare products - evaluating my skincare needs, reading product labels over, swapping out products to spruce up my skincare routine.
I'm really glad to have a copy of this text in my book collection and think that every beauty enthusiast should have a one too! Dr. Youn wrote a wonderful and resourceful book to read and learn from.
