Abstract
The series “Clinical Approaches and Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology” intends to be a practical guide in Cosmetic Dermatology. Procedures in cosmetic dermatology are very popular and useful in medicine, indicated to complement topical and oral treatments not only for photodamaged skin but also for other dermatosis such as acne, rosacea, scars, etc. Also, full-face treatments using peelings, lasers, fillers and toxins are increasingly being used, successfully substituting or postponing the need for plastic surgeries. Altogether, these techniques not only provide immediate results but also help patients to sustain long-term benefits, both preventing/treating dermatological diseases and maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. Throughout this series, different treatments in Cosmetic Dermatology will be discussed in detail covering the use of many pharmacological groups of cosmeceuticals, the new advances in nutraceuticals and emerging technologies and procedures.  This volume, entitled “Daily Routine in Cosmetic Dermatology” will be an important tool for aesthetic doctors, practicing dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and all other physicians interested in the field of aesthetic medicine. It discloses in detail the semiology and general treatments in cosmetic dermatology, providing the state-of-the-art regarding patients’ evaluation, photoprotection, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals and special prescriptions.  Also check the other volumes: Volume II - Chemical and Physical Peelings Volume III - Lasers, Lights and Other Technologies Volume IV - Botulinum Toxins, Fillers and Related Substances.

Abstract
This user-friendly reference tool presents clinical scenarios and discusses some practical complementary and alternative therapies available in dermatology. It focuses on peer-reviewed data that are suitable for use in a conventional dermatology practice and helps dermatologists guide their patients when faced with questions regarding integrative dermatology using an evidence-based, reader-friendly, and case-focused approach. Within the field of dermatology, there is a marked void in the understanding of complementary and alternative approaches, though dermatologists frequently use off-label therapies to manage chronic conditions. They do so, however, with a range of success and potentially considerable side effect profiles. Handbook of Integrative Dermatology is a must-have tool for any practicing dermatologist.

Abstract
This book serves as a practical guide for the prevention and treatment of radiation dermatitis. Skin toxicity caused by radiation treatment is common among cancer patients and minimizing the frequency and severity of these reactions improves quality of life and prevents interruptions that can compromise local-regional control. Each chapter is devoted to a specific disease site, such as the head and neck, breast, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecologic, and central nervous system. Pediatric malignancies and wound care for locally advanced cancers are also discussed. For each topic, the range and frequency of the observed skin reactions, factors influencing these reactions, the typical course of each reaction and its resolution, and the interventions used are presented. This book provides evidence where it exists for the specific interventions and an extensive illustration program depicts the various reactions and their response to treatment protocols. Skin Care in Radiation Oncology: A Practical Guide presents a framework for patient care in an era of advancing technology and systemic and targeted therapies and is a valuable resource for radiation oncologists, dermatologists, and residents. .

Abstract
Dry skin impacts on the lives of many individuals but in most cases it can be adequately managed with current moisturizing products. Certain moisturizers, however, can themselves adversely affect the quality of life by inducing further dryness and eczema and so becoming addictive. In addition, there is a possible link between moisturizing treatments and asthma. Development of moisturizers is a scientific and artistic discipline, where consumer insights are also needed. This new book bridges the gap between the moisturizers and the skin by covering all the essential information required to tailor the use of moisturizers to particular disorders and patients. Important aspects of skin biochemistry and barrier function are explained, and the ingredients and treatment effects of moisturizers are explored in depth. Careful attention is paid to controversies, including the role of certain moisturizers in inducing dryness/eczema, asthma, and comedones. The information provided in this unique book will enable the reader to go beyond the traditional thinking regarding skin care. The novel insights offered will suggest the properties required for a new generation of moisturizing treatments that more effectively improve the quality of life.
