I was very glad this past week to have made a slight detour in one of my usual routines because I ran into someone who shared a wonderful story of how she had purchased Mindful Beauty Is In Your Hands for her daughters over the holidays.
She told me how they were now working through the recipes and it sounded like they (the daughters) were having a blast with it. Apparently they already loved to experiment and create with their own beauty recipes with much the same sort of food-based ingredients that I use in the book (eg. cucumber), and so mom thought why not step it up a notch and toss in a bit of science while they are having so much fun.
Mindful Beauty Is In Your Hands provided just the right blend of recipes and added ‘how it works’ information. For example, according to mom, the girls now know that strawberries contain salicylic acid (a beta-hydroxy acid that loosens dead skin cells and aids exfoliation). Sweet, huh?
She says the only drawback is that she has yet to participate in the “beauty workshops” at home as of yet! 🙂 Well, I certainly hope that she does soon and I am so grateful to her for sharing her story with me. It definitely made my day.
If anyone else reading this blog has a story to share, feel free to do so, either here or email me directly. And please feel free to leave comments on the Amazon website once you’ve read the book as well. And thank you everyone for all of your continued support.
Note: As you might have guessed, I have anonymized this story on purpose. 🙂
