Breaking Out by Lydia Preston

October 25, 2010

Thankfully, my skin has cleared up A LOT in recent months, but I still troll the acne section at the bookstore whenever I visit. I guess old habits die hard! Anyway, I saw this book called Breaking Out: A Woman’s Guide to Coping with Acne at Any Age, and just from leafing through it at the store, thought it looked wonderful. The author, Lydia Preston, presents what looks to be a comprehensive examination of the causes and treatment of acne and related problems such as blackheads on nose, forehead, chin, whatever. What I really liked was how she described the way different treatments work, and give you an idea of what kind of regimen you should be using for your skin type.

I really don’t have any need for this book right now, but I sure do wish I’d found it back when I was having trouble. At least if my acne ever returns (I’m hoping and praying it doesn’t), I’ll have a good idea of where to turn for advice.
