Friends, family, colleagues and members of the press met at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, central London, on April 5 to celebrate the launch of consultant dermatologist at Skin55 Dr Anjali Mahto’s first book, The Skincare Bible: Your No-Nonsense Guide to Great Skin.
Champagne and canapés were served throughout the evening, while guests had a chance to meet Dr Mahto and find out more about the book, which is published by Penguin UK.
Targeted towards the general public, The Skincare Bible aims to debunk myths surrounding skincare advice and offer readers a definitive guide to caring for their skin.
The book was inspired by questions Dr Mahto gets asked in clinic every day, and aims to tackle common complaints such as acne, eczema, rosacea and ageing with her practical advice on products and routines.
During the event Dr Mahto thanked guests for attending and said, “For those who know me well, you’ll know that one of the things that bothers me the most is bad skincare advice. Growing up I spent an awful lot of time wasting money on products that didn’t work and skincare advice that wasn’t very good. I genuinely feel strongly that people should not have to go through this, so want to get credible advice out there.”
She continued, “To be given a platform to be able to talk about skincare and in an evidence-based, science-based manner, and reach out to as many people as possible, has been really important to me. On that note, I do hope that the book is useful to either somebody that you know, or to yourself; I think there’s something in it for everybody. It covers a whole manner of things and I feel incredibly grateful that I have been given this opportunity to write it.”
