Food as beauty + skin care? We all know what we eat can have an affect on our skin health (even if we don't always want to admit it) - but have you ever considered using the foods you eat as part of a natural skin-care regiment? Author Adina Grigore is the founder of S.W. Basics (a natural skin care company) and brings her book, Skin Cleanse : The Simple, All-Natural Program for Clear, Calm, Happy Skin to audiences looking for a cleaner (and greener) approach to the care of the body's largest organ - your skin. (Homemade Bloody Mary mix as a facial toner? Coarse sugar as a body scrub? An avocado skin mask? Yes, please!) Join us at Native Foods in Wicker Park (the too good to be true vegan cafe) for a discussion of "slow" living as it relates to overall skin health.
Light appetizers will be provided. Additional food/drink will be available for purchase.
