Overview

How many beauty products do you use each day? Are they safe or are there toxic chemicals lurking in those seductive creams, silky lotions or luscious lipsticks? How can you tell?
Face Book gives you recipes and tips for some safe options that you can make yourself from ingredients that are trustworthy. It also tells you how to check the contents of your beauty shelf for danger signals.
It is a scary fact that the majority of commercial cosmetics contain at least one ingredient that is carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic. Each item on the shelf has to contain enough preservative, not only to keep it from going bad, but to kill the germs on YOUR fingers or face every time you use it. Gives a whole new twist to 'preserving your skin' doesn't it?
Making your own beauty aids is easy, fun and creative.
Cheaper too... Try it!

Meet the Author

Jan was the youngest of seven children, raised on a farm in New Zealand. She has been making her own cosmetics and remedies since she was old enough to realize what fun it was, so has more than sixty years worth of safe recipes and hints to share. On coming to Canada about fifty years ago, Jan married, raised a family in northern B.C. and now lives in the Kootenays in the sunny, southern mountains.


It was the fierce New Zealand sun that sparked her interest in skin care, an interest that has continued over the years, while teaching, raising five children and spending every possible minute outdoors, riding, hiking and prospecting with husband Dan, a third-generation placer gold miner. In spite of all this exposure to the elements, and 70+ busy years, her skin still fits her, so she knows that her remedies work


It seems that men as well as women are looking for ways to improve their health and (literally) to save their skins. They just don’t know where to start. The ‘Kitchen Cosmetics’ series can help with that.


Jan is working on a series of do-it-yourself books, covering skin care for women, men, teens and the very young, as well as recipes using native Canadian plants. Her goal? To help folks to smile more and become healthier.


Are her recipes and ideas simple? Yes. Are they effective? Definitely (if they can keep seventy-year-old skin in shape, think what they can do for some gorgeous young person…)
