Book SynopsisFeel Empowered and Beautiful at Any Age with This Groundbreaking Guide to Skincare We all want to have young and healthy skin, yet the beauty industry is so mixed in its messages that most consumers have no way to tell which skincare products are helpful and which claims are pure hype. In The Skincare Hoax, skincare expert Dr. Fayne Frey explores the "essential" product categories that are entirely unnecessary, exposes how many well-known skincare ingredients have no scientific basis, and recommends truly effective skincare products and regimens that are easy and affordable. Key points include:
- Why an over-the-counter wrinkle cream that removes wrinkles would be in violation of federal law
- The one and only true anti-aging product
- What moisturizers actually do
"An especially important and instructive exposé."

I loved this book! This gave me so much insight on how you should be going about your skincare routine. Given all the tik tok skincare trends lately that I’ve tried and seen little to no results, this books title was really intriguing to me. Everyone should give this a read and see how little you should be doing to take care of your skin.
