Surprising DIY Droopy Eyelid Lift! by KJ Walt is a book of natural, homemade skin and hair care recipes. As the title promises, there is an eyelid lift technique for individuals who see the effects of what is medically known as ptosis, a condition where the upper eyelid situates itself in a downturn beyond what is and has been normal for the individual. It can occur with one or both eyes and for a variety of reasons. Walt's technique is a fingertip to face touch technique that incorporates ultra-light touch, hold and lift movements that are manual. She offers additional advice on lymph drainage for water retention and other areas of the face, neck, and chest, employing her years of experience as a massage therapist in the therapies.
Surprising DIY Droopy Eyelid Lift! is so much more than an eyelid lift, and I cover that on its own in its introduction because it is most likely that would be the reason a reader would pick this specific book. In addition to the eyelid lift, KJ Walt provides a complete encyclopedia of twenty-five bath and body recipes using all-natural ingredients, and additional recipes as a peek into the first two books in her Healthy You series. There is a Vanilla Woods moisturizing perfume recipe that is to die for and an anti-aging pineapple powder mask that I'm not sure I could live without anymore. My daughter was excited about the natural color pop recipes for hair, which uses mica for a temporary streak of color in an almost limitless number of shades. I came for the eyelid lift and left with loads of healthy additions to play with. Amazing!
