The Complete Natural Beauty Guide for Healthy Skin

november 27, 2015

Today I'm bringing you something different than usual. I'm going to quickly share my thoughts on a book. The book is called The Complete Natual Beauty Guide for Healthy Skin* and was written by a fellow blogger Cat from Cat Food is Good For You. Funny name, right? :) First of all, this book is actually an e-book but I would happily have it in a paper form because it looks really pretty. You all know I'm all about flowers and cute details and that's exactly what her illustrations are. First impression was great and that is why I decided to give this book a go.
The book is all about minimalistic, simple and affordable approach to skincare, mostly. It's written very much like one long blog post, meaning that the style of writing is super relaxed and feels like Cat is talking directly to you. I think it is a great guide for those who are interested in natural and green beauty but don't know where and how to start. Cat's aim with this book is to show how easy it can be to go all natural and that it can be really affordable, especially if you're really into minimalism. I like that she shares her own story with acne and rosacea and gives lots of helpful advice on these two skin problems. She talks about some ingredients that are best to avoid and about some multi-purpose ingredients that you should incorporate into your beauty routine. Those are Almond Oil, Castile Soap and Essential Oils, just to name a few. There are loads of simple DIY recipes, from facial moisturizers and oils to toothpastes, deodorant, hand lotion and more.
All in all it is a nice natural beauty guide for beginners, but I would like it to be more in depth. I also don't agree with everything she wrote, like using fractionated coconut oil or salt for facial scrub. It is just too harsh for delicate and sensitive skin on the face. I also wouldn't go near fish oil supplements or gelatin, but that is just me. I prefer vegan superfoods, like hemp seed oil for example. But I'm extremely happy we both agree on avocados. They are the best!<3

I don't think it is a complete guide, like the name suggests. Honestly, I don't think that is even possible. But like I said, if you're a green beauty beginner and want to know a bit more about it, then I think you'd like it.

You can get it here. Cat was also super nice to give a discount code for you guys! Use "GREEN15" and get 15% off. Code is valid for one month, until the end of 27th of December (and I don't get anything in return if you use it).

Much love and have a great end of the week,

  3. This sounds really nice! I'm always interested in reading about green beauty! And I agree - sugar is wayyyyy to harsh for your facial skin. My skin gets irritated just thinking about it
