Return to Beauty offers regimens made from fresh ingredients that can be found right in your kitchen. With recipes for winter, spring, summer, and fall, you can look beautiful throughout the year. Narine Nikogosian's natural and inexpensive products can be whipped up in less than ten minutes. Have a jar of honey in your pantry? Mix it with a few crushed walnuts to create a sensual, aromatic scrub for oily skin. Use dabs of cottage cheese to lighten undereye circles, or almond oil to rehydrate cracked lips. Narine also provides recipes based on astrological signs, such as for Scorpio, a Gracious Grapefruit Mask made of grapefruit, egg yolk, and soothing honey to rejuvenate your skin even after a late night.

Narine is from a long line of Armenian women who have been harnessing the powers of nature to create everlasting beauty. For the first time, she reveals her secrets so that you can have star-worthy skin.

Have you noticed? You continue to use cosmetics & products promising you an acne-free life, anti-aging results, smoother glowing skin...

But the more you use these products, the fewer results you see.  If you're like millions of other people, you may begin to feel they only prove to be a waste of both your money (the best of these products come with a hefty price tag!) and your time.

There very well could be something else that is being "wasted," too -- your very health.  It's true! 

Even the so-called natural and organic cosmetics seem to carry potential dangers -- despite the soothing assurances of commercials and manufacturers.

If you put cosmetics on with less than healthy -- even toxic -- ingredients, guess what happens?

All the potentially toxic items soak directly into your skin and into your system.  Surely there must be a better way to make you look and feel better without putting your health on the line everyday!

What if I told you there were products available that are natural, and many times organic that wouldn't harm your skin or endanger your health?

What if I told you there were products you can use and be absolutely sure of the ingredients you were using?

What if I told you the ingredients for these outstanding skin care remedies are waiting for you right now in your very own kitchen? All you need to do is gather the items and make them.

It's true and this is what "Natural & Organic Beauty Recipes" will show you.

Just imagine being able to have healthier & more beautiful skin in just 7 days (or less) without becoming frustrated or wasting your time.

Here's what you'll discover in "Natural & Organic Beauty Recipes":

    - The potentially dangerous and toxic ingredients lurking in many modern cosmetics...

    - How to understand the advantages of creating your own skin care recipes, therapies and treatments...

Get Your Glow On With Skin-Loving Foods & Homemade Products

Improve your skin the way nature intended—with real, fresh ingredients! Nutritional Therapist Nadia Neumann completely transformed her skin by making simple switches to a nourishing, real food diet and natural skincare routine. In Glow, Nadia walks you through the steps to naturally clear, radiant skin from the inside out.

Learn the ways that issues inside your body—like inflammation you may not even notice—manifest themselves on your skin as acne, dryness or eczema. On the flip side, get the deets on how common skincare products and routines—like washing your face with harsh cleansers twice a day—can actually make these skin troubles worse. It’s science, but Nadia’s fun and friendly writing makes these issues easy to understand and fix for good. She’ll even spark your creativity in the kitchen with fabulous recipes like glow-getting smoothies, easy lunches and skin-nourishing dinners. Not to mention plenty of fun and unique DIY skincare products like masks, toners, eye creams and face oil blends. Packed with Nadia’s stunning photography, no other book will both inform and inspire you like this. Everybody—both young and old—has naturally gorgeous skin just waiting to be revealed; with this book, you will finally get your glow for life.
