Narine Nikogosian is one of Los Angeles’ best-known skin care and beauty experts, with a list of celebrity clients that include Jessica Alba, Charlize Theron, Alfre Woodard, and Kirk Douglas. Her skin care regimens are praised for being gentle, natural, and incredibly effective.
Narine is from a long line of Armenian women who have been harnessing the powers of nature to create everlasting beauty.
For the first time, she reveals her secrets in her NEW book, Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin, so that you can have star-worthy skin.Return to Beauty offers regimens made from fresh ingredients that can be found right in your own kitchen. With recipes for winter, spring, summer, and fall, you can look beautiful throughout the year. Narine Nikogosian’s natural and inexpensive products can be whipped up in less than ten minutes. Have a jar of honey in your pantry? Mix it with a few crushed walnuts to create a sensual, aromatic scrub for oily skin. Use dabs of cottage cheese to lighten under eye circles, or almond oil to rehydrate cracked lips. Narine also provides recipes based on astrological signs, such as for Scorpio, a Gracious Grapefruit Mask made of grapefruit, egg yolk, and soothing honey to rejuvenate your skin even after a late night.
This is a brilliant book to have in this economy. If you can’t afford fancy scrubs, luxurious face masks, and expensive moisturizers, you can easy make your own with the recipes found in this book.
I can’t wait to try some of the recipes in this book! Shiny Hair Rinse, Calm Down Apricot Cleanser, Tango Mango Moisturizer, Happy Hands Cream and more! Plus recipes specifically for the Fall and Winter like the Blushing Apple Carrot Mask. So many yummy recipes, I guarantee you’ll want to run into your kitchen and whip one up.
The Sparkling Spa Honey Scrub on page 12 is made with 3 simple ingredients that would cost you less than $3 to make and I’m better you already have at least 2 of the ingredients in your pantry already. The other one I’m dying to try is the Java Juice Body Scrub on page 153. It calls for 4 simple ingredients and helps with circulation and blood flow.
I also thought it would be a great idea for Christmas gifts! Who wouldn’t love getting a jar of homemade sugar scrub or an all natural moisturizer? It would only cost you a few dollars to make and your hard work and thoughtfulness would definitely be appreciated. Even the book itself makes a great gift idea. I can think of a few people on my Christmas list that would love this book.
Would you want to try any of these old world recipes for great skin?
