During the past two decades, people have become increasingly mindful and careful as to what food they consume, what products they use to keep their houses clean, and what beauty products they apply to their bodies. Just like the preference for organic food has been expressed by more and more consumers, now they are manifesting the same inclination towards healthy, non-toxic ingredients in the case of cosmetics and other hygiene products.
Luckily for all those who are health-conscious or for those who want to improve both their lifestyle and their body’s appearance in a natural way, Jan Benham has put together a complete guide to making your own beauty products – “The Baby Boomers Beauty Bible (Cosmetic Making)”. In this well-written book, you will find a wealth of tips and easy-to-follow recipes which will help you make shampoos, cleansers, moisturisers, body lotions, lip balms, sun screens, deodorants, and so much more. All of the previously mentioned products are based on all natural ingredients – such as lemongrass, lavender, cider vinegar, citrus fruits, coconut oil, peppermint – which can be easily found in stores.
Jan Benham’s guide is well-structured, comprising nine parts each dedicated to a certain aspect of beauty care: part one deals with the basics of cosmetic-making; part two is all about choosing the right ingredients; part three is entitled “The Essential Guide to Basic Cream and Lotion Making” which is pretty self-explanatory; part four focuses on what the author calls inner care (detoxifying your organism, breathing properly, getting your beauty sleep, and so on); parts five, six, and seven offer information on facial care, body care, and hair care; part eight comprises recipes for holiday care (insect-repellants and sun screens); part nine, “Es-sensual Sexuality” focuses on the use of essential oils as a means of increasing one’s libido.
Making your own beauty care products will improve your health and your appearance, plus you can share them with your dear ones or even start a business of your own with these all natural products.
