The Mind-Beauty Connection: Amy Wechsler

Liking the way you look is vital to your health and happiness. But that’s not easy when life runs at warp speed—you’re simultaneously coping with ever-increasing demands: dependent kids, aging parents, or both; shopping; cooking; laundry; money pressures; and more, more, more. Good bet you’re super-stressed, tightly wound, sleep-deprived—and it shows.

Sure, but your thirties you’ve accumulated the first signs of normal aging: crow’s feet, a bit of safe, some broken capillaries. But stress aging—how the madness of modern life affects your physical features inside and out—is today’s biggest skin and health challenge.

Happily, stress aging is very reversible. And it takes only a few days. While you may never be able to totally turn off all the pressure (if only!), Dr. Wechsler has plenty of combination strategies—from her own favorite stress buster to her number one wrinkle reverser—to help you turn back the aging effects of tension and time. She’ll also teach you how to slow down and, to some degree, reverse the natural aging process. This is your guide to feeling, looking, and living young.

In her book, she shows you how to:

-Find out your SkinAge with a groundbreaking test that reveals how old (or young!) you really look
-Personalize a 9-day renewal plan that’s right for your face, wallet, and psyche
-Understand the different cosmetic procedures and products available today
-Adopt a mind-beauty regimen that will keep your skin—correction: your whole body—looking and feeling terrific—not just for now, but for life.

The mind-beauty connection is powerful and can dramatically affect how well—and how fast—you age. The rewards for soling it go far beyond a quick fix. They’re transforming. You’ll not only look better, you’ll also sleep better, feel better, and likely lose unwanted weight as you begin to feel healthier, less stress, and more alive.
