The description of Natural Beauty - 200 Tips, Techniques & Recipes
As an alternative to expensive, invasive procedures and toxic skincare ingredients, I’m sharing these do-it-yourself tips to help you save time, money, and your health.
And, the best part is you’re using the healing powers of nature and supporting your body’s innate healing capacities to look naturally beautiful.
The world would have us believe that there are no simple and inexpensive natural beauty tips and tricks. What makes me say that? Well, did you know that the beauty industry is a nearly $300 BILLION dollar empire? And that the average woman spends about $15,00 on just makeup in her lifetime!
And according to a UK survey, women will spend well over a year of their life applying that makeup. Ouch. That, of course, says nothing of the toxic chemicals so commonly found (with almost zero regulation) in beauty products. Yep. Seems like the world is telling us that we need to spend lots of time, lots of money, and risk our health to be beautiful. Don’t believe it.
Many of today's beauty products contain harmful chemicals and other additives that most of us don't even know about - and if we did, we wouldn't use them--no more. With 200 Tips, Techniques, and Recipes for Natural Beauty you'll learn all that you need to know to make your own organic beauty products. Create delightful lotions and potions in your own kitchen, using all-natural, holistic ingredients like herbs and flowers. Discover conditioning carrier oils, sumptuous butters, and aromatic floral extracts that will nourish you head to toe. Also, use some of the recipes for your overall health, including curative herbal extracts and therapeutically effective essential oils. With step-by-step photographs, clear instructions, and expert tips, each recipe is easy to follow. Give them as gifts or keep them for yourself. Regardless, you'll never want to buy beauty products from the drug store again!

Remember, the best all natural beauty tips and secrets are not quick fixes. They require good sleep, stress management, proper nutrition, healthy supplementation and physical exercise. While all these little “gems” above can provide some oomph to your beauty routine, remember that real beauty is a result of taking care (or “thanking”) your body on a daily basis. And by being you. Because you are beautiful.
I hope you enjoyed these natural beauty tips.
