The market’s flooded with numerous beauty products for every part of our body. Pretty packaging lures our eye, and their unbelievable claims stroke our vanity. The drawback is that many, if not most, contain harsh and toxic ingredients that can do more harm than good. There are other options though; you can spend an alarming price on organic skin care products, or you can make your own. My newest book The Complete Guide to Natural Homemade Beauty Products & Treatments will walk us through the steps to create 175 recipes from scrubs and masks to moisturizers and shampoo.
Over the past decade or so, a nature-derived cosmetic trend has emerged onto the market. With more and more people are getting health conscious, ingredient informed and cosmetic savvy, the demand for natural and chemical free alternatives is growing. Here is where The Complete Guide to Natural Homemade Beauty Products & Treatments steps in. It allows us full control over what we put on our skin and what ingredients we use. It also shares what we can do on a daily basis to enhance our skin.
First, it important to mention that our skin needs to be nourish from the inside. What we eat and drink will reflect just how vibrant and glowing our skin surface is, or just how dull, wrinkled and inflamed it is. You are what you eat! The first chapter shares insight and the Nine Rules For Healthy Eating.
Chapter 2 expands on what vitamins and minerals you need for healthy skin, and what products will rob you of your true beauty. It’s no surprise that sugar, smoking, and alcohol are beauty thieves.
The rest of the books gets right into creating your own customized natural homemade beauty products. You’re provided a list of what tools and ingredients you’ll need to create each recipe.
I spend the most amount of money on moisturizers and cleansers, so this was the first section I poured over. Each recipe tells you which specific skin type it’s best suited for, or if it’s good for all skin types. I live in a drier climate, so naturally, my skin reflects this.
Although most of the ingredients are not what we would have in our home, they are easy to attain. Your health food store may carry some, or you can purchase them online. I love the idea of making my own skincare products, and this book is packed with nourishing recipes that will benefit not our face, but our hair, scalp, hands, nails, and feet. You’ll learn how to make your own deodorant, soaps and colognes as well. It has everything we need to create a healthier, younger, and more beautiful you.
