Who needs to spend a small fortune on beauty? The author, Raisa Ruder shares her fabulous tips handed down from her Ukrainian grandmother. All natural beauty recipes for help in fighting wrinkles, fighting acne, plump up lips, and much more with everyday items such as eggs, honey, and oils.
Womens most common complaints are:
Babushka's Beauty Secrets has tips for all our concerns.
I loved reading these incredible easy beauty ideas. The top five Babushka's ingredients used are:
Potatoes - serve multiple purposes
Vodka - best preservative
Milk - contains vitamins and is sort of a good bleaching agent for skin
Olive oil - good for the skin
Eggs - use every part, shell to yolk
I enjoyed the chapter about pampering. How to set up your home spa. Imagine having a comfortable place of your own to pamper. Invite friends over for a day at your spa! Share the beauty tips with your circle and enjoy the company.
Babushka's Beauty Secrets includes many recipes for beauty treatments. The milk bath - made from powdered milk, epsom salts and a few extra ingredients sounds divine to soak in. Got a hot date coming up? Try the Romance Souffle - for your face. This decadent treat is made with dark cocoa, heavy cream, honey, and oatmeal. That sounds good enough to eat. Place it on your face for 20 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water followed by a milk rinse. A cocoa treat for the skin, to look your delicious best. Each chapter of Babushka's Beauty Secrets: Old World Tips for a Glamourous New You brings something more amazing. You will find tips for hair care, moisturizing skin, sunburn relief and too many to mention. All made with low cost ingredients. I like the idea that I know exactly what is in the lotions, that is a big plus for me.
