Food for the Skin - Natural Skincare with Rebecca Sullivan



Description

These days more than ever, we appreciate the importance of health and well-being, and place great emphasis on the word ‘natural’. For many of us, though, this is limited to focussing on what we eat and drink. If we really want to achieve a natural lifestyle and optimum health, we need to take a more holistic approach.

Have you ever wondered what is really in the skincare you are using everyday? The only way to really know what is going into your body, and on your skin, is to make it yourself! Now is your chance to make your own using nothing but natural, edible ingredients.
