The Positive Ageing Plan

The Expert Guide to Healthy, Beautiful Skin at Every Age

An expert's plan to understand and feel in control of your skin throughout the ageing process

Over the last 14 years Dr Vicky Dondos has treated thousands of women who are unhappy with their own reflection. In The Positive Ageing Plan she demystifies the skincare jargon, explains the facts of the ageing process and reveals a peek behind the cosmetic medicine curtain so that we can better understand and feel empowered to take control of our own appearance. She reveals the four pillars: mindful practices, lifestyle medicine, skincare options and cosmetic procedures, and shows how they can help you to achieve a beautiful and natural glow - no matter your age or budget.

She explains everything from why wearing SPF every day is crucial for healthy skin to what skincare actually works (often not the expensive stuff!) and from the foods that support your skin, to which cosmetic treatments might suit you. This book gives you the building blocks to create your own personalised skin-care plan, for a long-lasting healthy glow.

Praise for The Positive Ageing Plan

A brilliant book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and learned so much. I finished it feeling empowered and in control - two words I never thought I'd use about my skincare! You can feel the care from Dr Dondos. It's like a love letter from her to any woman who has ever felt bamboozled by the beauty industry. I will be buying a copy for all the women in my life!

Lily Boulle, Founder & Managing Director of Sleep Siren

No judgement - lots of information, this book seeks to give women choices and whilst my age management system is rooted in nutrition, Dr Vicki Dondos's sensible subtle and sophisticated approach to skin makes her my choice for clients seeking a clinical approach

Karen Cummings-Palmer

There is no better (or kinder) authority on the business of beauty than Dr Vicky Dondos. This book will make you rethink everything the world has erroneously told you about ageing. Part practical guide, part philosophical meditation, this is the beauty book women of every age deserves.
