Ruth Ford Elward, a unique combination of writing artist and hands-on skin care specialist. Ruth is an Author and Licensed Medical Aesthetician and Certified Medical Laser Technician. After years in the business world managing the Denver Division of an international financial publishing company and modeling in her spare time, she decided her real passions lie more personal with hands on between the fields of writing and aesthetics.
While giving her time to writing mostly, Ruth manages to incorporate into her work activity her other passion, aesthetics. "Writing keeps the mind sharp, it gives me the opportunity to exercise my imagination to engage the reader", says Ruth. "One of my greatest joys is to be able to lose myself in my writing. So my writing ranges from books on Mystery/Suspense/Thrillers and even a little Sci-Fi and Fantasy to articles on Beauty and Skin Care."
After working in the field of Medical Aesthetics, in 2007 Ruth founded My Aesthetician where she performs a multitude of skincare services, consults and educates. Ruth lives in Colorado and enjoys biking, golfing and ballroom dancing in her spare time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great advice for PCOS, too! March 29, 2013

I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. When I asked my doctor for advice on how to treat the specific symptoms, he told me that most of my symptoms were similar to the symptoms felt with menopause.
When I asked my mom for guidance, we looked online together for different books. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that Ruth had written a book that seemed tailor made for my situation.
This book is incredible. The 50 chapters are devoted to handling different symptoms of menopause or tips to treating them. Each chapter is full of gentle advice on how to treat and prevent the symptom.
I really appreciated the advice on large pores, adult acne, and skin tags. PCOS causes my hormones to go wild, and I wasn't prepared for these symptoms at all.
My mother was able to use the advice in nearly all the chapters. At this point I've loaned the book to her because it's helped her so much! We've both had so much relief from large pores by using the simple technique outlined in chapter one.
Menopause and hormonal changes are difficult to go through. It's books like these that deliver no-nonsense help and advice that make it more manageable. I highly recommend this book.
