Our skin is our body’s covering. It is also how other people see us. A dull, lifeless and pre-maturely aged skin brings about insecurity, lack for confidence and ultimately lack of friends. On the contrary, a glowing, healthy skin makes us more youthful, vibrant and assertive.
One sure way to achieve this enviable glow is to do away with chemically-packed skincare products and embrace all-natural, organic beauty products as an increasing number of people have done. And what better place to start than during your bath time with the application of body and face scrubs.

Why Scrub?

The main reason for applying body scrub is for exfoliating. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells that clog up beneath the skin’s pore.
As humans advance in age, the skin becomes rough and patchy. In exfoliation, the uneven outermost dead layer is removed to reveal a balanced smooth and fresh skin underneath.

Other exfoliation benefits include:

Removal of excess oil from the skin.

Increasing blood circulation.

Reducing the likelihood of blackheads formation and acne breakouts.

Reducing cellulite.

Improving the texture of the skin.

Minimizing wrinkles and fine lines.

Exposing hair follicle for a closer shave.

Allowing new cells to regenerate.

Preparing the skin for an even tan application.

Removing dull tanned skin.

This book focuses on the major homemade body scrub recipes to help your skin. Get hold of it and learn more details including sugar scrubs, salt scrubs, oatmeal scrubs, among others.

Do not disregard your skin care. It is important for both men and women. Get a beautiful skin and impress your family and friends.

Unprocessed: My City-Dwelling Year of Reclaiming Real Food

Unprocessed: My City-Dwelling Year of Reclaiming Real Food

Megan Kimble

In the tradition of Michael Pollan’s bestselling In Defense of Food comes this remarkable chronicle, from a founding editor of Edible Baja Arizona, of a young woman’s year-long journey of eating only whole, unprocessed foods—intertwined with a journalistic exploration of what “unprocessed” really means, why it matters, and how to afford it.

In January of 2012, Megan Kimble was a twenty-six-year-old living in a small apartment without even a garden plot to her name. But she cared about where food came from, how it was made, and what it did to her body: so she decided to go an entire year without eating processed foods. Unprocessed is the narrative of Megan’s extraordinary year, in which she milled wheat, extracted salt from the sea, milked a goat, slaughtered a sheep, and more—all while earning an income that fell well below the federal poverty line.

What makes a food processed? As Megan would soon realize, the answer to that question went far beyond cutting out snacks and sodas, and became a fascinating journey through America’s food system, past and present. She learned how wheat became white; how fresh produce was globalized and animals industrialized. But she also discovered that in daily life, as she attempted to balance her project with a normal social life—which included dating—the question of what made a food processed was inextricably tied to gender and economy, politics and money, work and play.

Backed by extensive research and wide-ranging interviews—and including tips on how to ditch processed food and transition to a real-food lifestyle—Unprocessed offers provocative insights not only on the process of food, but also the processes that shape our habits, communities, and day-to-day lives.

The Case for Faith: A Journalist Investigates the Toughest Objections to Christianity

The Case for Faith: A Journalist Investigates the Toughest Objections to Christianity

Lee Strobel

In his #1 best-seller The Case for Christ, legally trained investigative reporter Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God’s unique son.

But despite the compelling historical evidence that Strobel presented, many people grapple with serious concerns about faith in God. As in a court of law, they want to shout, “Objection!” They say, “If God is love, then what about all the suffering in our world?” Or, “If Jesus is the door to heaven, then what about the millions who have never heard of him?” Or, “If God cares for everyone, then why does he eternally torture some in hell?”

In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief–the eight “heart” barriers to faith. The Case for Faith is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with formidable intellectual barriers standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with even their most skeptical friends.

Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life

Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life

Emily P. Freeman

You’re strong. You’re responsible. You’re good. But . . .

. . . as day fades to dusk, you begin to feel the familiar fog of anxiety, the weight and pressure of holding it together and of longing left unmet. Good girls sometimes feel that the Christian life means doing hard work with a sweet disposition. We tend to focus only on the things we can handle, our disciplined lives, and our unshakable good moods.

But what would happen if we let grace pour out boundless acceptance into our worn-out hearts and undo us? If we dared to talk about the ways we hide, our longing to be known, and the fear in the knowing?

In Grace for the Good Girl, Emily Freeman invites you to release your tight hold on that familiar, try-hard life and lean your weight heavy into the love of Jesus. With an open hand, a whimsical style, and a heart bent brave toward adventure, Emily encourages you to move from your own impossible expectations toward the God who has graciously, miraculously, and lovingly found you.

“If you struggle with trying so hard, being so good, and hoping so much for joy and grace in the mundane, savor this book.”–Mary DeMuth, author of Thin Places: A Memoir

“It is such a joy for me to recommend Emily’s book to you. She has profoundly ministered to this recovering good girl.”–Angela Thomas, bestselling author and speaker

“Emily Freeman is one of those rare writers: profoundly biblical, lyrical, transparent–memorable. Her emancipating words on these pages offer the needed keys to all the good girls longing to take wing–and soar home to God’s heart.”–Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts

Emily Freeman is a writer for DaySpring (a division of Hallmark) and has also traveled as a writer with Compassion International. Emily extends a daily invitation on her blog for women to create space for their souls to breathe. Join the community of grace dwellers at www.ChattingAtTheSky.com.

Rick Mantovani knows pasta. He has a string of successful Italian restaurants on the East Coast, but he wants to conquer barbecue. And the place to prove himself is the heart of Texas.

Love and a Side of Chips by Traci Tyne Hilton
Never kiss your boss. That’s a lesson Kylie Rossi isn’t going to forget, not after losing her job. Now she’s back home with her parents, mopping floors at a taco shop, and trying to figure out exactly where everything went wrong. Was Chris Stevens just not that into her? Well, that seems plenty obvious. His complete lack of interest when he delivered the news didn’t leave much room for misinterpretation. When Sergio Reyes shows up at Tio’s Tacos, he’s just what her grandma says she needs to order: handsome, charming, and maybe even interested in her. He seems like exactly what she needs to get over her heartbreak, but even so, she can’t seem to get that boss out of her head. Her grandma’s recipe for love gets a new ingredient when Chris gets back in touch. He is definitely still interested. Kylie has to figure out what she really wants—a fling with the man who fired her or love with a side of chips.
