Have you ever asked yourself what the difference is between sun block and sunscreen or wondered what the best moisturizer is for your skin? How about whether or not anti-aging products really work or what skin cancer looks like? Dr. Ellen Marmur, a world-renowned New York City dermatologist, knows these are the kind of questions women ask themselves, and she provides the answers in her book Simple Skin Beauty: Every Woman's Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin.

As a skin cancer surgeon and skin cancer survivor, Dr. Marmur breaks her book up into three chapters: Know your skin and how to care for it; The health of your skin; and Regaining your youthful skin. Throughout the book, she touches on important topics about skin that she hears every day in her practice. Topics like skin and cancer, anti-aging investments and wrinkles fill the pages with practical advice for over-the-counter treatments, when to see a doctor and what you should, or shouldn't, be paying for great skin. Dr. Marmur also details effective ways to gain gorgeous, healthy skin by adjusting a regimen to treat issues like acne breakouts, dry skin, wrinkles and more.

This book is easy to understand and offers a straightforward, humorous guide to the skin.

15 Minute Beauty Fanatic -

The 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic blog is written by a high-maintenance girl in search of an easier beauty routine, and she needs it! Blogger Christine is a PICU doctor in the Midwest with a new baby at home. As a product junkie, she is always looking for the best beauty treatment, and with 15 minutes to style her hair, put on makeup, get dressed and get into her car, she dislikes products that take too long or don't work.

"Hopefully, I've pointed my readers in the direction of some great products, steered them clear of some horrible ones and given them some info on the science behind beauty," Christine writes.

The blog features a special series that includes Anti-Aging 101, Concealer Review Series, Sunscreen 101, Manicure 101, Mommy/Pregnancy Beauty and Prom & Wedding Looks from The Runway & Red Carpet.
