BenBella Books, a leading independent publisher of non-fiction books, with fourteen New York Times bestsellers, is pleased to announce the second edition of Plant-Powered Beauty: The Essential Guide to Using Natural Ingredients for Health, Wellness, and Personal Skincare (with 50-plus Recipes) will be released on August 4, 2020.
Natural beauty experts Amy Galper and Christina Daigneault show readers how to deconstruct beauty labels, parse ingredients lists, make informed choices about the products they use—and, most important, better understand how their skin works. They also share insight on a plethora of plant-based ingredients, including carrier oils, essential oils, hydrosols, clays, herbs and spices, and many more – teaching readers the art and science of natural product blending.
Touted as the “definitive guide to blending natural skincare products,” Plant-Powered Beauty offers more than 50 easy-to-follow recipes to make your own plant-based skincare and beauty products, such as Almond Milk Facial Cleanser, Anti-aging Facial Scrub, Blemish Gel, Choc-o-Mint Lip Balm, Coconut Whip Makeup Remover, Vitamin-Rich Hair Health Serum, Quick and Fresh Cucumber-Thyme Body Scrub, Moisturizing Body Oil for Super-Dry Skin, and Natural Mouthwash.
Plus, in this updated edition of Plant-Powered Beauty, meet the hottest wellness and beauty ingredient: cannabidiol, a very unique molecule within the Cannabis sativa plant. Research shows that CBD has a remarkable effect on the skin, including supporting tissue repair, evening skin tone, and promoting a youthful glow. New CBD recipes—for men and women—include a salve to reduce pain, bath salts to address inflammation, roll-on for anxiety relief, body butter, face oil, and more.
