Discover Holistic Healing with The Naturopathica Effect

Approaching beauty through a holistic lens, Barbara Close, founder of Naturopathica, has been a long-time advocate for educating people about clean and natural products that actually improve the health of the skin.

In her third book, The Naturopathica Effect: A Holistic Approach to Skin Care (2018), Close cuts through the beauty trends and buzzwords to share her simple approach to skin health. Focusing on the performance of plants and their healing potential, she reveals the impact they can have on the factors that influence our daily lives, such as stress, sleep, and digestion.

She also tackles common skincare issues, such as acne, premature aging, and sensitive skin, and the role blood sugar, hormonal changes, nutritional deficiencies, and environmental damage can play. In addition, she offers customized beauty rituals for various skin personalities, gives the lowdown on helpful and harmful ingredients, provides simple strategies for creating skin-healthy foods, and reveals how stress affects the skin. In this helpful guide, she helps spa-goers discover the essence of beauty, which she believes exists within each individual.
