Overview

The groundbreaking, scientifically based anti-aging program for people of all ages

Many people believe that sags, bags, and wrinkles—on the face and body—are inevitable. According to award-winning research scientist and dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, M.D., they are due to inflammation at the cellular level caused by poor nutrition, pollution, sunlight, irritating skin care treatments, and stress. In fact, this type of inflammation is more than a beauty problem; it can lead to increased likelihood of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis.

Now you can prevent—and even reverse—many signs of aging, producing visible improvement in the skin, and in your body’s overall health and appearance. Step by step, Dr. Perricone shows you how to improve your health, looks, and well-being, providing:

• A three-day “jump start” diet that will give you immediate results

• The 28-day Perricone Program of meals, exercise, and skin care

• Delicious, nutritious, easy-to-follow recipes

• More than 50 impossible-to-ignore before-and-after photos

• A complete resource guide

• And much more!
