Gorgeous for Good – How much of a purist do you want to be?

September 11, 2015

Gorgeous for GoodI’m totally into physical tweaks now and then. Sometimes I fall for deceptive marketing practices for cosmetics and foods that promote anti-aging and well-being.

However, after reading a book by Sophie Uliano titled, Gorgeous for Good: A Simple 30-Day Program for Lasting Beauty – Inside and Out, I might reconsider my buying choices, but I had to ask myself, “How much of a purist do I want to be?”

Uliano shares a warehouse (and some) of knowledge on holistic nutrition and skin care along with:

  • How to read labels on ingredients from beauty products to foods
  • Sharing toxic versus non-toxic ingredients in many popular products
  • How to recognize natural versus synthetic
  • Fair trade and organizations that are certified for both natural and organic personal-care products.

This is a fabulous go-to reference book to carry with you any time you are shopping for the personal products you use every day and recipes for many of the homemade organic personal-care products and foods you can make on your own.

Label1Uliano has taught me many new things I never knew. Here are just a few of the things that piqued my interest and, not surprisingly, shocked me at how much I really don’t know about what I’m putting on my face and into my body.

–    Is it made in a lab or does it come from the ground?
–    What NSF/ANSI 305, NPA, NATRUE, COSMOS Organic and Natural Standards are all about
–    What compound disruptor mimics the hormone estrogen?
–    How many synthetic chemicals have been introduced to us since World War II?
–    What questionable ingredient is found in 80% of beauty products?

At the end of this powerhouse book, Uliano provides a 30-day program consisting of beauty, diet, fitness and “me time” tips along with amazing recipes to cook your way to true beauty.

Ask yourself, “What are you going to do; be a true purist or take a glimpse of pros, cons and myths of what you digest so you can reinvest in being Gorgeous for Good?
