Pure Skin: Organic Beauty Basics

by Barbara Close (Author), Gentl & Hyers Gentl & Hyers (Photographer)

Product Description
Spa expert Barbara Close has created a holistic guide to beautiful skin,
covering everything from organic products to detox to stress relief. In the
tradition of her popular Spa Deck and Well Being, Pure Skin is a natural,
no-nonsense approach to skin care. Demystifying beauty-industry hype, Close
helps readers understand what makes their skin unique, how skin really
functions, and how to make sense of the multisyllabic minefield that is a
cosmetics label. With balance as a main ingredient, readers develop a skin-care
regimen to suit their individual needs. Forty recipes for natural beauty
treatments introduce luxurious alternatives to industrial products. Sensible and
accessible sections on food and detox reveal simple and effective ways to
nourish and restore skin from the inside out. Special attention is given to
curatives such as homeopathy and Bach flower remedies, offering invaluable
resources for those with hard-to-treat skin problems. Evocative photography and
clear advice make this indispensable guide to naturally beautiful skin the next
best thing to being born with it.
