Aging SUCKS. No bones about it, the extra pounds, the lack of hormones, the slowing down and the wrinkles are not something that I can embrace. Unfortunately I have no say in the matter, so I’m looking for every loophole in the book to stay young. One of those “books” I’ve found is the real deal.
Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist by Debra Jaliman, MD is a simple book that gives the skinny on what to do and not to do to have BEAUTIFUL skin. While I read her tips with my usual jaded caution, the reality is that Dr. Jaliman offers simple, sound advice to women (and men) of ALL ages – whether they’re dealing with teenaged acne or looking for the next anti-aging miracle.
From diet tips that include pink grapefruit (it has 50 times more Vitamin A than white grapefruit) to how to use Botox conservatively for a “lite” effect (and not look like one of TV’s “Real Housewives of”), I’ve been learning the ins and outs to looking younger and healthier.
I must have a dozen dog-eared pages and I haven’t even told you about my FAVORITE part of the book – the RESOURCE SECTION. Not only does this New York Dermatologist to the stars offer tips, but she also has a full resource section of her favorite PRODUCTS to use that include everything from inexpensive Neutrogena (which she prefers in cleansers) to one of my favorites Kiehl’s. Truthfully, I was shocked to see so many AFFORDABLE products on the list (don’t worry though, she also chats about Fraxel, Juvederm and more).
With testimonials about Dr. Jaliman from actresses like Sela Ward and Rachel Bilson, to a thumbs up from makeup artist Trish McEvoy, it seems that everyone who’s ANYONE agrees that this dermatologist knows JUST what she’s talking about.
Look for Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist at your local bookstore or online at stores like Amazon.com.
This one gets a flute of champagne (but only ONE, because I want to look good in the morning)!
I received a copy of this book to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
Sounds great. I’m always looking for skin care tips that are affordable.
I could use this! Thanks for sharing.

It’s a very simple book. Some of the chapters (if you can call them that) have maybe 2 or 3 paragraphs, but it doesn’t matter because she gets to the point IMMEDIATELY.
I’m going to highlight some of her other tips in a post, because most of the brands she suggests can be picked up at WalMart, CVS, Target or Walgreens (cheap).
I love that, I hate reading and reading to never find out what I’m reading for. 😉
