I was reading one of my favorite authors, Rex Stout, and Archie Goodwin, my favorite narrator spoke about one of their clients who he did not like. She was loudmouthed, rude, overdressed, and he was glad to see that he had an excuse not to like her. She had an unwashed neck.
I gave a grin of smug and superior pomposity. Washing behind my ears, and washing my neck properly every day when having a bath had been drilled into me when I was a baby. So I had a squeaky clean neck, hurray, hurray. But it looked like I had been neglecting my elbows and my knees and also my feet. That comes of having no time for leisurely showers because one is in too much of a hurry to shower, get ready, and get out of the house in time to catch the morning’s rush to the rat race.
Even if you are not rushing around, and you have all the time in the world to have a long leisurely bath with all those lotions, potions, bath salts, and all those chemical-based stuffs, let us look at natural methods which are going to add to a clean body and exterior.
These notions of elementary hygiene and cleanliness were disregarded, in many parts of the world, especially in Europe for centuries, but in other parts of the world, especially in ancient civilizations like Egypt, Persia, Babylon, China, Japan, and even ancient Europe, traditional beauty recipes to take care of the body and keep it young, youthful looking, and beautiful were handed down from grandmother to grandchild, and utilized.
Nowadays, so many of us are so busy buying really expensive brand name cosmetics, and slathering them all over our skins, that we have forgotten all about natural-based traditional methods which have been in use for millenniums, especially in body and hand care.
People always admire beautiful and well-maintained hands because they are about as expressive and appealing a feature to enhance your personality as a beautifully formed and made up youthful looking face is.
The time spent upon taking care of your hands, feet, and the rest of your body can never be thought wasted. However, hands and feet and other parts of your body only get a fraction of the care and attention, we lavish upon our faces.
If you think that a hand is not expressive look at the soft and smooth, graceful gestures of a dancer using both her hands to express a variety and gamut of emotions. It is sheer poetry and you may often have seen women using their hands so gracefully even in normal day-to-day gestures. This may make you feel so envious.
Being quite human ourselves, we look at the ill cared for, rough skinned, and possibly red hands and decided that we are going to do something about it tomorrow.
Well, tomorrow is here today, and this book is going to tell you all about traditional recipes made from items found right there in your kitchen, and in any traditional kitchen, with natural products.
