Thoughts: As someone who has quite bad acne ridden skin I was very curious about this book and whether it would be helpful or not. I have to say that I quite enjoyed reading through it as it was definitely handy.
Not only does this book have skin care recipes but it has information about each of the ingredients commonly found in skin treatments. I found it to be a very helpful guide as it gave information about the source of the ingredient, what it’s used for and any reasons why you should avoid it.
I really liked the look of the salad dressings recipes featured in the book, because nutrition is also a part of having healthy skin and hair and when it is summer time and a good time for salads I will definitely be trying a few of the recipes.
One bonus is that the majority of the ingredients are really easy to obtain and it’s likely that you’ll already have most of them in your house.
I did try out one of the face mask recipes and my skin felt nice afterwards and the next day there was a slight but noticeable difference in my skin. I’ll be continuing to try the recipe I used to see how it continues.
Overall, if you’re interested in natural homemade skin care remedies then I would suggest giving this book a try.
