“The Beauty-Obsessed Scientist” Dr. Erin Tjam, former Director of Research at St. Mary’s General Hospital, and adjunct professor at University of Waterloo, and renowned anti-aging physician and skin specialist Dr. Ryuichi Utsugi, Director of Clinic UTSUGIryu, are pleased to announce the launch of the new book Skin Sobering: 99% of Products Age and Harm Your Skin! Learn What You Truly Need to Be Beautiful and Makeup-Ready.
In Skin Sobering, Tjam and Utsugi deconstruct the myth of reliance on skincare products peddled by the beauty industryTweet this
Tjam and Utsugi know that what we call “skincare” products don’t care for your skin so much as mask the problems that plague it. Worse yet, modern skincare disturbs the skin’s natural metabolism and impairs beauty – daily and nightly.
In Skin Sobering, Tjam and Utsugi deconstruct the myth of reliance on skincare products peddled by the beauty industry. Using evidence collected by treating thousands of patients, and reviewing hundreds of scientific studies, they empower you to understand what will help your skin look and feel its best.
Tjam and Utsugi know that beauty and health are not at odds. What’s healthy for your skin is also what makes you beautiful. They offer the key to helping your skin “sober up,” so you can escape a health epidemic to which you didn’t realize you were contributing.
“Skin sensitivities, dryness, and diseases have reached epidemic proportions in children and older adults, in addition to rampant beauty problems,” Tjam and Utsugi said. “We wrote Skin Sobering to teach people to care for their skin without products, a simple approach that really works, despite the beauty industry trying to silence us.”
Skin Sobering released on January 23rd and is available on Amazon and at other major retailers.
