About the Author:

How Dr. Thienna Solved Your Skin Problems.......... As a young girl growing up in Vietnam, Dr. Thienna found herself comparing her own skin, to the smooth, alabaster complexion of her mother. She wondered why her skin was several different shades darker, uneven in color throughout her body, and prone to deve-loping thick, fibrous scars at the slightest pimple or abrasion. Even worse, the skin on Dr. Thienna s elbows, knees, feet and ankles was embarrassingly rough, thick and dark ashen gray in color........... Over the years, Dr. Thienna tried every skin preparation imaginable to improve her total body complexion. But to her dismay, these products only darkened her skin and made the anomalies more obvious. Her intense desire to correct her own skin problems became an obsession, driving Dr. Thienna to learn everything she could about the science of human skin. After seven years of scientific research, Dr. Thienna solved one of the most enduring mysteries on earth the causes for variation in human skin color. With her revolutionary breakthrough in the altering of human skin color. You can now use her method to solve your own skin riddles. .......... About Dr. Thienna ..........

Eleven years later, Dr. Thienna and her family fled communist Vietnam in a 50-foot wooden boat that carried 285 passengers. On its way to Indonesia, the vessel was attacked by pirates. Less than one year later, Dr. Thienna's family immigrated to the U.S. and settled in San Francisco. .......... She is the founder of Thienna, Inc. and is one of the world's leading authorities on human skin color. She holds a number of academic degrees, including a BA in Economics; a BS in Microbiology; a Graduate Certificate in Genetic Engineering; an MA in Business Administration; and a Ph.D. in Scientific Nutrition.

Review:

A compelling theory about the chemistry of skin color that includes step-by-step advice for those who want to lighten their skin. While the belief that one skin color is superior to another is unthinkable for many, Vietnamese author Ho reiterates a powerful social reality: In many parts of the world, including the United States, fair skin is equated with beauty. Part autobiography, part instruction manual, the book describes how she experienced shame as a child because of her complexion, which was darker than other members of her family. Ho s experiences drove her to develop a method to alter skin color while pursing her doctorate in nutrition at San Francisco State University. The author claims great success the cover shows before and after pictures of her transformation from olive to nearly ivory-white. Ho devotes much of her book to proving her theory that complexion has little to do with genes but instead is a product of diet and atmospheric toxins. She contends that some countries are likelier to produce darker-skinned people because of poverty, malnutrition and geographical elements like volcanoes. To her credit, Ho offers sound nutritional advice avoid smoking and excessive antibiotics, stick to whole foods and hormone-free dairy products. However, readers may wish that in choosing to study the science of skin care, Ho might have also discovered her unique beauty and focused her expertise on well being rather than the struggle to conform. Even so, her method is more realistic than most of the claims that come with many anti-aging products, which promise that we can transcend time itself provided we buy the right cream. An intriguing guide that might comfort readers who seek to fit social definitions of beauty. --Kirkus Discoveries
