Secrets of Beauty and the Bible – The Ancient Arts of Beauty and Perfume by Ginger Garrett
In this book, author Ginger Garrett introduces women to the beauty and health secrets of our former sisters . While few would consider the Bible to be a diet or health book, let alone beauty, Garrett shows us the opposite. She claims that older women had the same desire as modern women to be as attractive as possible. She asks questions about the health and beauty industry that are increasingly worried: that the products we apply on our skin daily are not only unregulated, but are often toxic and dangerous.
As an alternative, she offers recommendations and tips for beauty treatments that are directly off the pages of the Bible. They are so simple that they seem almost too good to be true. For example, using a drop of honey on wet skin instead of expensive moisturizers. Interestingly, this tip is recommended by a hot Hollywood makeup artist!
The book does a good job using modern scientific evidence to prove the effectiveness of these simple treatments. For example, vinegar was a staple of ancient times. We now know that vinegar helps the body maintain a stable blood sugar and slows the absorption of carbohydrates. Another example is flax, which is largely in the regimes of ancient women. Flax acts as an anti-inflammatory, which has the effect of slowing down aging.
The first chapter of the book helps the reader re-evaluate his current ideas about beauty using scripture and meditation. This part of the book may not interest you if you are not religious, but it might lead you to think of our modern cultural ideals around beauty.
Chapter Two goes to the heart of why so many women have weight problems, and what to do about it. Chapter Three highlights the dangers of modern cosmetic ingredients and chapters. Four at Seven offers you alternatives and safer and natural recipes for beauty regimens worthy of a completely safe spa. To top it off, she offers instructions on how to host a Bible Secrets of the Bible Spa Party. If you like doing your own beauty treatments, you will love this book.
