Our skin is our largest sensory organ. Through skin we perceive and feel the world outside, and we show our beauty in the way our skin appears. So if you fancy getting to grips with some truly natural and organic beauty products, full of local folk remedies and knowledge handed down from generation to generation, look no further:
