Renegade Beauty : The Complete Guide To Healthy Skin And Natural Radiance
Nadine Artemis invites us to rethink conventional notions of beauty and wellness, to abandon established regimes and commercial products, and to embrace orenegadeo beauty-a practice of doing less and allowing the elements and the life force of Nature to revive the body, skin, and soul so that the natural radiance of our own beauty can shine through.
This engaging book explains how our ancestors lived deeply rooted in and reliant on nature, though now we have lost our connection with the elements that once sustained us. The author takes us on a trip to the not too distant past when our lives were integrated with nature, which furnished our health and beauty. She exposes the philosophy that caused this shift and examines why and when we withdrew from the natural world around us, and the devastating health, emotional, and cultural problems that resulted. Along the way, she reviews historical definitions of beauty from ancient Egypt to Plato, the Renaissance and Enlightenment periods, and the Golden Mean.
Anyone stuck in perpetual loops of new products, facials, and dermatologist appointments will find answers as Artemis introduces the energizing elements of sun, fresh air, water, the earth, and plants. She invites readers to ditch their regimes and simplify their routines as she leads us on a joyful journey of cellular rejuvenation. Tackling common beauty complaints, she offers practical botanical, microbial, and dietary suggestions to rejuvenate the cells, reenergize health, and allow beauty to bloom. She draws on current nutrition research to advise us about which foods are health sustaining and which should be avoided. As we shift toward chemical free and environmentally safe self-care products, this book is a comprehensive guide for anyone who wants to simplify their self-care routine, discover their own radiant beauty, and take their health into their own hands.
