This book is a beautiful game changer. Such an easy and delightful read that will make you rethink what products you put on your body and how that might effect your skin and your health.
I have been free of the big no's, i.e. animal testing and parabens for years... But this books really opened by eyes to so many other whack ingredients that I certainly don't want to slather on my face.
Adina's tone is friendly and personable which makes this an easy read. I am going to play around with homemade natural recipes and share on ATC in the months to come.
I did two things as soon as I read this book. First of all, I decided to just wash my face in the evenings, and I began washing with water in the morning. Secondly, I switched body washes to one that is made of just three ingredients and they are all orangic oil. Coconut oil, jojoba oil and olive oil by Brooklyn based, Plant. Two weeks later, I looked down at my arms, and for the first time in my entire life, my arms are smooth as silk, no irritation or bumps. I have always had little bumps on my arms, to the point I had just adjusted to seeing them. But now that I am just washing my body in amazing organic oil... Silky smooth.
I can't wait to explore more in depth the knowledge in this book and share with you all the process.
What kind of homemade recipes for skincare and natural products reviews would you like to see on ATC? I would love to hear from you.
