You know your diet should be rich in plants for optimal health. So shouldn’t the products you apply to your skin, which are absorbed into your body, also be filled with plants? 

If you’ve ever looked at the back of your so-called “natural” facial moisturizer or body cream and seen a list of complicated additives you couldn’t recognize or pronounce, then you know firsthand that mass-produced synthetic beauty products can be something of a mystery. 

With Plant-Powered Beauty: The Essential Guide to Using Natural Ingredients for Health, Wellness, and Personal Skincare (with 50-plus Recipes), harness the power of plant-based energy to maintain your natural beauty and let your skin glow like never before. 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

At the heart of Plant-Powered Beauty, you will find 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
  • Natural Mouthwash

Plant-Powered Beauty unlocks sought-after wisdom for all aspects of plant-based personal skincare and celebrates the shift in beauty trends, bringing us back to natural beauty and reconnecting us with plants and healthy choices.
