My mother always said that the old ways work. Many of the old ways have been forgotten as we struggle to be everywhere at once and are bombarded with advertising telling us that these miracle products will helps us look picture perfect all at the expensive of our pocket book which costs us more of our precious time. Before all of this chaos, people turned to their kitchens for beauty aids.
The author Raisa Ruder is an Esthetician to the stars and she learned her time-tested beauty techniques from her Ukrainian grandmother or babushka as she so lovingly calls her.
Since our skin is so absorbent, I believe that what we use on our body should not be any different that what we put inside our bodies. The recipes in this book are all made from everyday grocery items like eggs, honey, vegetable oil, strawberries, carrots and much more. This is a very practical book to own and I am very excited to try out some of the soufflé masks and temporary hair color boosters found inside this wonderful book! There is even a mustard wrap that is supposed to smooth the thighs and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Recipes aside, there is a lot of practical tips in this book from soaking sweat stained clothing in powdered aspirin and warm water. Yes, I said aspirin. I was quite surprised as well.
