Nothing in Howard Murad's appearance or manner suggests a rebel. At 59, he is a soft-spoken, natty dresser with stylishly slender eyeglasses and short silver hair. Yet throughout his career, and especially in the 10 years in which he's built his El Segundo-based skin care company into a $60-million-or-more-a-year business, he has been a maverick. In his characteristically calm, self-assured way, he says, "I'm open-minded, and I look at things differently than a lot of people do."

Cynics maintain that cosmetics companies sell hope in a bottle. But connoisseurs of beauty products care a great deal about exactly what kind of bottle the promise of beautiful skin or hair arrives in. The newest, most preferred containers dispense a blob of cream or lotion via a plastic pump. Pumps are easy to operate, but their true beauty is as invisible to the naked eye as a germ. Dr.

The Skinny on the Beauty Industry The most common procedures for those 18 and under last year were laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and rhinoplasty. This age group accounted for 1.5 % of all cosmetic work. People ages 35 to 50 made up 47% of the total, and those between 51 and 64, 24%. * 205 % - The growth rate of med-spas in the last five years.

Attaining and maintaining beautiful skin requires more than night creams, Botox cocktails and tutorials on how to use cosmetics. True beauty comes from healthy habits, says Dr. Howard Murad of the namesake skin care line. "To me health and beauty are synonymous. When you're healthy, you're going to be more beautiful," he says. Now he's taking that philosophy beyond the confines of his dermatology practice in El Segundo by offering an immersive weekend health retreat at the Parker Palm Springs in September.

It's a universal truth: When you're in your 20s, you can stay out all night and look fresh the next morning. Unfortunately, as we age, lack of sleep affects us more deeply and shows more prominently on our faces -- lackluster complexions, dark circles, fine lines and, in more extreme cases, rashes and eczema. Progressive loss of cellular water may be one reason sleepless nights affect our skin more visibly as we age, says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Howard Murad. Water retention is key to keeping skin moisturized and supple, which can translate to fewer lines and a smoother complexion.

Thanks to technological improvements and massive marketing efforts, picking a skin lotion--whether for your face, body or hands--is no simple task. In fact, it's beginning to make pantyhose selection (regular? control top? industrial-strength control top?) look like a walk in the park. When you're eyeball-to-skin-lotion-labels, it can get confusing. Do you need the fingers-only formula? A special lotion for legs and feet? The advanced formula or the extra relief lotion?

Actor Dudley Moore has sold his longtime home on Venice Beach for $2.5 million. The Oscar-nominated actor ("Arthur," 1981) has been suffering from the rare degenerative brain disorder PSP (progressive supranuclear palsy), which causes loss of memory and balance and leads to paralysis. He was diagnosed with the disorder in 1998. Moore, 64, became a film star in "10" (1979) after moving to Los Angeles from England in 1975.
