As we all know having that perfect glow to our skin is something we all desire. Luckily, I believe that I have found a whole book of some of the secrets. Return to Beauty is a jammed packed book by Narine Nikogosian who has a long history in skin care. Narine has studied nursing with a specialty of dermatology in Armenia and Russia. Once she moved to the United States, she found success at Ole Henriksen Face/Body in LA with a slew of devoted celebrity clients.
Return to Beauty is a 260-page beauty book full of skin care recipes for all skin types. It addresses common skin care concerns and gives you a way to treat them at home, inexpensively (which I know we can all get down with right?).
There are six parts to this book: Seasons (my personal fav), Sun Signs, Simple Solutions, Pregnancy, How to Give Yourself a Facial and Simple Solutions for Men. Each part is broken down further, making it easy to find the recipes meant for your skin type, skin concerns or astrological sign.
Now to the good stuff! I have tried out two of the recipes because it is that time of the month for me (I KNOW! TMI) I have oily skin. So I thought that I would try out an oily skin regimen. I tried the Grapefruit Refresh Cleanser.
Did you know that grapefruits contain citric acid which rejuvenates skin and closes pores. They also contain fructose and vitamins A, C, and D.
After a week of this I feel that my skin is a lot softer and that I only needed my daily SPF and just some eye cream around my eyes. Two thumbs up!
Since I was really into the whole grapefruit kick I decided to try the Gracious Grapefruit Mask.
Did you know that grapefruit is high in healing vitamin C. It tones and brightens skin, and the citric acid exfoliates dead skin cells.
I used this one three times in 2 weeks and the smell isn’t so great, but the outcome of your skin is incredible. I highly recommend both.
Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin is full of recipes that cater to your particular skins needs. I highly recommend Return to Beauty for anyone who likes natural remedies that don’t break the bank and have beautiful results.
