Living Without's Favorite Books: Mirror, Mirror
Return to Beauty, Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin (Atria Books) is a cookbook approach to safe, natural and effective beauty treatments. Los Angeles skin-care expert Narine Nikogosian shares proven recipes (used on her client list of Hollywood’s top lovelies) for moisturizers, scrubs, masks and more—all made with fresh, nutrient-rich ingredients found in the grocery store. Combining passed-down wisdom and modern dermatology, Nikogosian outlines a regimen of daily facials for an entire year, taking into account skin type, seasonal changes and individual personality. The book contains quick-fix recipes for common beauty concerns, as well as skin tips for pregnant women and a no-frills section for men. Say good-bye to over-priced, under-performing, chemical-laden cosmetics and hello to healthier skin, naturally.
