Is 2018 the year you are looking to be more natural, using only natural and organic ingredients in your skincare, beauty and makeup products?

If this is your personal mission for this New Year then start by venturing into the world of gorgeous coffee table books and invest in the simply beautiful ‘An Atlas of Natural Beauty’, a coffee table book worthy of many ‘ooh’s and ahh’s’!

The cult Parisian apothecary l’Officine Universelle Buly details the secrets of seeds, flowers, oils, trees, fruits and herbs that form the foundation for their irresistible concoctions based on time-honoured recipes and uncompromising natural ingredients, with each entry beautifully illustrated.

Written by beauty power couple Victoire De Taillac and Ramdane Touhami from l’Officine Universalle Buly this delicious book focuses on botanical ingredients for retaining and enhancing beauty.

An excerpt from the first few paragraphs sums up natural beauty and what it means; ‘Nothing is simpler, more enjoyable, more self-evident or more efficient than taking good, natural care of yourself. Nothing is easier than devoting the requisite amount of time to it – no more than you would spend on commercial cosmetics – and nothing is more pleasant than giving meaning to your beauty rituals.

This beauty book offers a new way of looking at, making, and using beauty and cosmetic products, without costing the earth, and without harming the earth – a winning combination.

An Atlas of Natural Beauty walks you through a list of easily understandable rituals, preparations, tools for the job, ingredients, recipes and much more. This book isn’t just the perfect coffee table book; it is the perfect way to adapt your already busy millennial day-to-day life to incorporate a natural beauty lifestyle.

Available online from Amazon and eBay, plus Wordery and Blackwell’s, prices vary from around £10.50 to £13.50 depending which online store you buy from.
