Green goddess

Regular readers will remember how I referred to my late sister, Tricia, as Tree-Hugging Tricia, because of her love of all things environmentally friendly.

I, on the other hand, could get completely seduced by pretty packaging.

However, when I was pregnant, I really started to get interested in natural and organic beauty products that have minimal impact on the environment and are super-safe on the skin.

So now I try to champion them wherever possible, just like beauty gurus, Josephine Fairley and Sarah Stacey, the ladies behind the biggest selling series of beauty books in the world – the Beauty Bible books.

The latest in the series, The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible, has a handy new daisy rating system because there are different sorts of 'green' beauties.

Some products are 99 per cent natural and certified organic – they are marked with three daisies.

Two daisies are given to plant-derived products with no synthetics or petrochemicals, while the one-daisy group are mostly natural, with a small percentage of synthetic and/or petrochemical ingredients.

I love all the tips featured as well as – for the first time – the recipes included to try in my kitchen. So, if you're a beauty junkie with a conscience, you should add this new book to your library.
