Beauty From The Inside Out By Dr Libby Weaver
In this gem written by one of our favourite ladies in wellness, Dr. Libby, we are introduced to the idea that our outer beauty (skin, hair, nails etc.) is merely a reflection of our health on the inside, which is all impacted on by the food we eat, the nutrients present or absent from our blood, and the hormones our bodies produce each and every day. This book teaches you everything you need to know about hormones, nutrients and self-love so that you are equipped to really experience true beauty from the inside out.
The Goddess Revolution By Mel Wells
