The Natural Beauty Solution will help you completely overhaul your medicine cabinet, show you how to create simple natural recipes that are quick and affordable, and troubleshoot natural beauty methods to fit your specific skin and hair type. The beautiful color photography, the insightful and inspiring editorial, and the easy to create natural recipes will have you re-examining -- and re-directing -- your entire beauty routine to a natural beauty solution.
