Nature's Beauty Secrets: Recipes for Beauty Treatments from the World's Best Spas

Enjoy the most healthful and luxurious beauty treatments from the best spas worldwide, using ingredients from your own kitchen. The pursuit of beauty today is happily fused with a desire for inner health. Drawing from her extensive travels, fashion model Dawn Gallagher presents a natural, multicultural approach to beauty care. She has collected recipes from spas all over the world and translated them into simple treatments one can do at home. This book is a collection of ancient and modern beauty secrets, healing practices for mind and body, and lifestyle tips for health and vitality from exotic locations in Arabia, the Caribbean, the Far East, India, South Africa, and the Indian Ocean islands. Few of us have the time or money to drop everything and escape to the tropics, so here’s a top-to-toe revitalizing program you can do in the comfort of your own home. And in a move away from costly, chemical-laden cosmetics and beauty products, the book offers natural alternatives using healthy ingredients from your own kitchen—such as avocado, banana, olive oil, and yogurt—at a fraction of the price. Brimming with gorgeous photographs, easy-to-follow recipes, and multicultural beauty tips, Nature’s Beauty Secrets transports the reader to a world of beauty, pampering, and relaxation.
