First, I love that Renegade Beauty: Reveal and Revive Your Natural Radiance–Beauty Secrets, Solutions, and Preparations is dedicated to Nadine Artemis’ sisters.
Then Renegate Beauty reminds us that comparison is a killer, whether it is comparison with how we should look or comparison with other women. It was utterly fascinating to read the story of how Nadine Artemis discovered essential oils, after a detour in Paris (and its perfumes) and her upbringing close to nature (she was already making potions when she was a little girl).
Renegate Beauty insists on the benefits of the sun for all nature, including human beings. This touches me deeply as I am preparing to move and live south for this specific reason: to be able to be outside more and to feel the golden beloved sun on my skin. As regard to the water element, it was fascinating to learn that our brain and our hearts contain 73% of water. Then, there is a chapter about the Air element before the Earth element. Again, I am moving out of Paris because I need to breathe more oxygen. It is also a beauty decision!
Moreover, Renegate Beauty initiates us to vitalism, which I understand as a true communion between us and nature and the entire cosmos.
Above all, the best beauty secret actually resides in a healthy colon, which contains beneficial bacteria. I feel encouraged to carry on my regular enemas.
Furthermore, I was shocked by the eye-opener chapter about breast health and it should be required reading for every woman.
Why is this book life changing? Because having the confidence not to wear make up is very recent for me. I spent my teenage years to cover my skin with a thick layer of chemical cosmetics, thinking I was ugly without them. Whenever I look at photos of the old me with so much make-up on, the contrast is striking. Indeed, today my face looks cleaner and sharper, in the purity of the absence of make-up.
I highly recommend this beautiful book by Nadine Artemis, which is adorned by stunning photography, full of purity, grace and beauty.
I am sharing my coconut oil cleaning ritual and many more great beauty secrets in the playlist I created for you called “Beauty: natural, pure, minimalist, simple and healthy“.
As mentioned in the video, I stopped wearing underwired bras and feel so much better since. I share this in the video called “Bye bye underwire bras and hello self care or the end of suffering for beauty“.
