by Stephanie L. Tourles
Release date: September 18th, 2018
I received a complimentary ARC copy of Pure Skin Care: Nourishing Recipes for Vibrant Skin & Natural Beauty by Stephanie L. Tourles from NetGalley and Storey Publishing in order to read and give an honest review.
For the past ten years due to skin sensitivities I have been using more natural based cosmetics and skin care products. The past year I have taken it even more serious going right back to basics by using pure natural items to cleanse and moisturize and honestly, the timing of this book could not be more perfect.
In Pure Skin Care, Stephanie L. Tourles educates us on the science of our skin, how to care for it, giving us information on tips to care for it other than applying products externally. Pure Skin Care includes 78 recipes for all types of beauty products from cleansers, toners, scrubs, masks, moisturizers, steams, creams and balms, and features some easy recipes for every price range. Some ingredients are most likely in your pantry, others can be purchased at health food stores and even some local grocers. Tourles even gives us tips and techniques even teaching us to grow and dry our own herbs.
I tried creating some of the recipes and found them easy to follow, I was able to tailor them to my specific skin type and loved the results. I particularly liked the Balance Restorer, Light and Lively Moisturizer, Salt of the Earth Scrub, Tranquility Toner and the Lavender Protection Balm, all were fairly easy to make and have left my skin glowing!
