Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin by Narine Nikogosian is a beauty book that takes us to the kitchen. It’s filled with recipes for face masks, hair treatments, and much more. The author, Narine Nikogosian, comes from a long line of Armenian women who have been harnessing the powers of nature to create everlasting beauty.
This book offers regimens made from fresh ingredients that can be found right in your kitchen. With recipes for winter, spring, summer, and fall, you can create treatments to look beautiful throughout the year. Narine Nikogosian’s natural and inexpensive products can be whipped up in less than ten minutes. Have a jar of honey in your pantry? Mix it with a few crushed walnuts to create a sensual, aromatic scrub for oily skin. Use dabs of cottage cheese to lighten undereye circles, or almond oil to rehydrate cracked lips. Narine also provides recipes based on astrological signs, such as for Scorpio, a Gracious Grapefruit Mask made of grapefruit, egg yolk, and soothing honey to rejuvenate your skin even after a late night.
