Author Biography: Alan Logan

Alan C. Logan, ND, FRSH is a board-certified naturopathic physician licensed in Connecticut. He graduated magna cum laude from the State University of New York at Purchase, and as valedictorian from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. As an invited faculty member of Harvard's School of Continuing Medical Education, he lectures in the mind-body medicine courses offered at Harvard. Co-author of The Clear Skin Diet (SourceBooks, 2007), he is the only naturopathic doctor to have his commentaries published in the four leading dermatology journals — Archives of Dermatology, the International Journal of Dermatology, the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology and the British Journal of Dermatology. Widely regarded as one of North America's leading cosmetic nutritionists, he has been featured in health and beauty magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, W, Life & Style, as well as CTV and Global National Canadian television.

Book Synopsis

Your Skin, Younger presents clear, scientific evidence of the skin's aging process and how it is directly impacted by diet, stress, intestinal function, and even cooking techniques. Written by top dermatology and nutrition experts, the book reveals what you can do—naturally—to reverse bad effects for nourished, younger-looking skin.

Library Journal

These two titles take drastically different approaches to skin care. Naturopathic physician Logan, Mark G. Rubin, M.D. (dermatology, Univ. of California-San Diego), and Phillip M. Levy, M.D., who specializes in internal medicine and dermatology, discuss the scientific advances in preventing, slowing, and, to a certain degree, reversing skin damage. Nikogosian, a well-known celebrity skin care expert in Los Angeles, approaches skin care with special recipes for toners, moisturizers, and toning creams made at home from botanicals. VERDICTYour Skin is much more technical and may be a bit heavy at times for lay readers, but it is authoritative and presents an excellent overview of current thought. It will be of more use for most library collections than Nikogosian's personal take. Her recipes, even the most complicated, reflect a "handed down from mother to daughter" attitude and will appeal to readers who gravitate toward natural procedures and products.—Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, OH
