Amazed at the results, Dana wanted to share her knowledge with FOFs everywhere. In 2009, she asked dermatologist Dr. David Bank to work with her to write the book and develop her skin care system, The Skin Regime
. "Because Dr. Bank makes it a personal goal to give the truth to his patients, he was thrilled," says Dana. "He went through the entire book to be sure everything was accurate.
In August of 2012, just as her book was about to come out, Dana caught wind of New Jersey mother-turned-social-media-sensation Patricia Krentcil, better known as "Tanning Mom" because of her frighteningly dark, wrinkled skin from over tanning. "I wanted to prove how well the boot camp could work," says Dana. "I got in touch with her and told her about what my system could do for her. She agreed to commit to the regime and to stop tanning." Patricia's boot camp lasted roughly eight weeks, and involved a total of eight glycolic peels. She used mild soap, Lubriderm moisturizer, and sunscreen in between her at-home, inexpensive glycolic treatments supplied by a dermatologist.

"My book teaches you you how to get truly effective medical-level "peels" at home," says Dana, "at a fraction of the cost that medical spas and doctor's offices charge. Yes, you can do it, safely and easily. And it only takes about five minutes of your time every week, for 6 to 8 weeks."
