In these difficult economic times, have you ever considered that fruit and vegetables like carrots or strawberries can make a gorgeous face mask? Or that a simple inexpensive ingredient like milk has been used as a beauty product for centuries to exfoliate and soften skin? BeautyCraft contains lots of recipes to teach you how to craft your own simple hair and skincare products.
Are you fed up with buying products full of chemicals you can't identify or pronounce? BeautyCraft contains dozens of recipes ranging from face masks to foot scrubs scrubs to bath soaks. None of these recipes contain any of the synthetic skin irritants found in most commercial cosmetics. Each recipe is simple to follow and uses only natural ingredients.
BeautyCraft has been beautifully illustrated with photographs that show you how to make all the recipes. Each recipe card takes you through the ingredients and instructions step by step. You won't need to buy expensive oils or rare plants, all of these natural ingredients should be available in your local shops.
Did you know that apple cider vinegar has been used in beauty products since Roman Times? Or that coffee is thought to fight cellulite? Or that honey and thyme have great antibacterial properties? As well as a recipe book, BeautyCraft also contains a detailed A-Z of all the ingredients and equipment used in the recipes with explanations of what they do and how they work.
This phone app is beautifully made and just SO easy to use! I love it! It's very inspiring as the ingredients are very simple and you may even have a lot of the stuff at home needed already! I love the coloured photographs and the way it's been set out. The tips in there are fantastic too, I had no idea you could use Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner on the face! You can save yourself lots of money by making these things and you will also know exactly what is going on your skin, body and in your hair, unlike when you purchase mainstream products! This App is simply brilliant! - Anna Rodgers (Miss Eco Glam)
