Face It is not your typical beauty book. Written by Vivian Diller, Ph.D and Jill Muir-Sukenick Ph.D., both are former models. Vivian is a clinical psychologist and Jill is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, both are in NYC.
This book doesn’t look at the “how to apply makeup” or “skin care for your age”. Instead it looks at the various feelings we have as women as we age. We’ve been taught that looks and age don’t matter, yet deep down we seem to feel that looks really do matter. This book helps us strike a balance of what is a healthy image of our looks vs not accepting our changing looks and offers suggestions on recognizing when we begin to notice that difference.
Face It offers six steps to change our thinking – such as when we have those “uh -oh moments” which are distinctly different than “aha moments”! If you’re searching for a deeper meaning and understanding of aging and changing looks, this book offers a wonderful guidance for you. Fabulous over 40 really is a fabulous time, don’t be afraid of your changing looks but embrace them!
