How to Be Wrinkle-Free: Look Younger Longer Without Plastic Surgery

Carlotta Karlson Jacobsen, Author, Catherine Ettlinger, Author Putnam Publishing Group $24.95 (225p) ISBN 978-0-399-13097-7
Their misleading title notwithstanding, Jacobson, beauty editor of Harper's Bazaar, and Ettlinger, managing editor of Mademoiselle, know that ""you will wrinklethat's a fact of lifebut how much and when is all within your control. It's easy to look your best for your agethat's our goal, not to look years younger.'' The clear-sighted authors include a four-step tanning plan to prevent sun damage, a daily antiwrinkle vitamin and mineral program, and advice on rest, exercise and relaxation techniques, hairstyling, makeup and nonsurgical face-lifts. A list of dermatologists and beauty experts is provided but not brand names of specific products, such as a ``super healing'' hydrocortisone cream/moisturizer that is sold over the counter. More information on caring for allergic and sensitive skin would also have been a welcome addition to this guide. Without offering placebos or false hope, this book should help women deal effectivelyand grow older more gracefullywith their number-one beauty problem. Illustrations. First serial to Ladies' Home Journal. (May 30)
