KIRKUS REVIEW

Inspired by the exquisite complexions of the residents of an Alpine ski village, Aguilar sought out not just the recipes for natural beauty treatments but also the explanations for why they worked. Herein: her findings on skin and hair care, diet, facial variations, protection for hands and feet. Like York in the Back to Basics Natural Beauty Handbook (p. 346), she recommends separately for oily or dry skin and hair, and relies on fairly accessible ingredients--unsaturated oils, eggs, oatmeal, lemon juice, yogurt, vinegar. Oatmeal facials, Crisco chapstick, eggshell membranes to remove blemishes--until the novelty wears off.
