ABOUT THE BOOK




  • We can all have pretty good skin

  • This book is dedicated to those who want to understand how...

Why did I write a book about skin? What can it tell us that we don’t already know?

So yes, I wouldn’t have devoted three years of my life if I didn’t feel like I’m going to explode from all the knowledge I’ve gathered within me. I felt that my life mission was to pass everything I’d understood over to anyone who wants to take care of their skin, but for reasons unrelated to them, simply make mistakes and ruin their skin instead of improving it. I’ve already shared this knowledge with hundreds of my private clients, but this knowledge is too important to only remain with a select few.

At a time when there’s a jungle of information about cosmetics that is erupting onto us, this book comes to sort out your information from beginning to end: what is skin, what does it even need from us, what makes it healthy and strong and what weakens it, how to treat skin issues such as acne or extreme dryness, how to treat very sensitive skin, what is a hidden cosmetic allergy and how to treat it, how can our skin provide indication for other issues in our body.

I have discovered a lot of fake news during the recent decade, a lot of mistakes, a major lack of basic knowledge in skin and the human body, many cases of negligence and irreversible injuries to skin. I’ve delved deep into the subject matter and arrived at clear conclusions regarding what is good and right for the skin, and what is wrong and destructive. Believe me - whatever is good for your skin is also good for the rest of your body, and vice versa, after all, skin is part of your body, even the biggest part of it.

In this book, I also confront the issue of nutrition. After numerous years of exposure and investigation I’m certain that I know what a healthy diet for your skin contains, and I definitely burst a few bubbles regarding nutrition, at least for some of you. Some of you might find it contradicts your faith or your preferences, but hey - at least you’ll never say you haven’t been warned.

If your kids are teenagers, you’ll be able to gradually and informatively pass on the information in this book to your children. If your kids are very young, you’ll get a lot of tips about protecting their skin at every stage of their development.

I can guarantee that you’ll be surprised with information which you hadn’t considered, in every chapter you get to. Information which you assumed was wholly accurate will suddenly be discovered as unsubstantiated, and you will become informed consumers. Maybe a little bit cynical, but you’ll definitely become more responsible towards your health and mainly your skin.

This is also a self-help book: I’ll be guiding you step by step on how to improve your skin’s condition.
This book isn’t “heavy”. I’ve made sure to shorten the process and present you with the most important information in every section, so that you can understand the subject as quickly as possible.

ABOUT THE BOOK

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Treating Your Skin Wisely Step by Step - How to Heal Your Skin and Achieve Better Health

My name is Ophra. I was Born in 1966 in Israel.
I did my BA in agronomy at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, specializing in plants’ diseases and pests. When I was 39, after 15 years of working as an agronomist, I decided to change fields and went to study cosmetics.

I myself had unsolved issues with my facial skin - more about that is in the book. I wanted to understand the hidden ingredients of the products and to suit them precisely to my clients. Due to my academic background in plants as well as my personal inclination, I preferred the use of natural substances, so I learned how to produce natural creams, I opened a skincare salon, and … I started to work.

I’m not gullible by inclination, and I examine even published research meticulously. I have to check things in depth, to be convinced that there are no hidden commercial motives or false conclusions behind the publications. I enjoy helping people and improving their conditions, and can testify to extremely high integrity. These three features have led me to probe the symptoms I’ve encountered during my clients’ treatments, and to understand the reasons for their appearance.

After 12 years of work, studies and observation I decided to write a book for people who really want to know and understand - people suffering from skin problems as well as those treating them.

Mesotherapy or microdermabrasion is bad, it’s an illusion and here’s why I refuse to use the treatment in my clinic. It injures the skin in a way which causes it to lose moisture and become more penetrable by germs.

Extra knowledge:


Soap is formulated to clean our skin, but it also strip the natural oils from our skin. The natural fat/ oil our bodies produce is good for our skin — it provides a first defense barrier for the external factors (like bacteria's).


Instead, the oil cleansing method works based on the idea that "oil is able to dissolve oil". If we choose to simply dissolve our original oil (the sebum) with new and pure natural oil, we can clean our skin without disrupting its balance.

Oil quality

First and foremost, it is extremely important that you choose high quality, cold pressed oils that have not been obtained by chemical extraction methods. When possible, choose unrefined and organic.
