Perusing a more naturally inspired life? Just as it’s important to turn to natural sources for what we put in our bodies – it’s equally important to turn to natural sources when it comes to what we put on our bodies. Our skin is our largest organ, and absorbs all things we come in contact with.
A few months after I made my family our first batch of homemade deodorant DK Publishing sent me their Natural Beauty book – and I was super pumped to dive into it!
The book is simple and very easy to navigate. As soon as you dive int – you’ll be ready to start making some beauty recipes from day one! Some of the recipes you’ll find will help you make naturally derived:
- Creams and Serums
- Facial Oils
- Face Masks
- Shaving Aids
- Lip Balms
- Toothpastes and Mouthwashes
- Eye Masks
- Scalp Treatments
- Foot Creams
- Hand Creams
- Makeup Tips
- Facial Massage Guide
- Skin Care guides (there’s a great step by step guide on Dry Body Brushing and the why of it)
- And much more!
There’s also a section to help you determine your skin type and teaches you the basics of skin care. You’ll have a directory of ingredients which explains what different elements do and are used for. For instance, here’s some of the scoop on lavender.
The visuals in this book are amazing!! Take a look inside:
Natural Beauty: Natural Makeup, Soothing Therapies, Homemade Preparations is a book that every mom should have in her library and it makes a great gift for your growing daughters.
