In this interview Lois provides advice taken from her book, Tick Tock, Stop the Clock – Getting Pretty on Your Lunch Hour, to help women venture along their individual paths to beauty. The book features chapters by 11 highly renowned experts on topics ranging from the newest in lasers, fillers and dermal devices to optimum skin care products to meet specific facial landscape needs, details on the arsenal of techniques used by skilled cosmetic dentists, solutions for thinning hair, make-up illusions, body sculpting techniques and more.

Stern explained that she came to the realization that there was a need for a book with this type content while doing presentations for her earlier book, Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery.

I am so proud of each and every one of them. They certainly put their hearts and minds into their chapters and delivered beautifully.”
