Beauty Secrets : Natural Products

They say that we are what we eat. What we put ON our bodies is whats also going IN. This talk is about using natural, organic products to cleanse, moisturize as well as feed the inside of our bodies. Benefits of living healthy out weights the inconvenience and it does NOT have to be overwhelming to start.
InshaAllah we will go over some basics and alternatives while including a few benefits for each item we suggest in starting the transition. We might be surprised that MOST of the things we need to care for our bodies (inside and out) are things that we can EAT.
