When it comes to looking gorgeous, many of the best treatments are to be found in the fridge or fruit bowl, rather than the beauty counter. Nature is an amazing provider, with each season bringing an abundance of different herbs, vegetables and fruits that supply important nutrients to keep our bodies looking beautiful and feeling healthy all year round.
Lemons Are a Girl's Best Friend is a handy, pocket-sized guide to thirty superfoods, each with two simple recipes--one to eat and one to use as a beauty treatment, complete with notes about each food's benefits and best uses. From cherries to olives, or avocados to pomegranates, find out how each natural product boosts well being and nurtures healthier skin, hair, body and nails.
With 60 recipes for healthy dishes and all-natural beauty treatments, Lemons Are a Girl's Best Friend lets you have your Pomegranate Facial and eat your Halloumi, Orange, and Pomegranate Salad, too. Each of the recipes uses just a handful of all-natural, common ingredients to make deliciously clean dishes and easy treatments for healthier skin, hair, and nails. Each superfood is introduced with a list of its active compounds, which are then translated into tangible benefits--for example, the Vitamin C in the Tomato and Basil Bruschetta gives your immune system a boost, while the lycopene in the Tomato Face Mask protects your skin from free radicals and UV rays. With recipes for grocery store staples (oats, sweet potatoes, cucumbers) and buzzy superfoods (seaweed, chia seeds, cider vinegar) alike, there is something in Lemons for everyone!
