Sensual Sorcery: The secrets to maintaining a youthful appearance

The continued focus on beauty regimes and maintaining a youthful look can leave many women feeling the pressure to not only turn back the clock, but to actually stop it in its tracks. Whilst treatments such as botox and fillers continue to remain popular, many women are increasingly looking towards more natural approaches to help maintain their looks as they age, and with good reason too. Stella Ralfini is in her 70s, but you’d never guess so by looking at her! In her new book Sensual Sorcery, Stella shares all of her secrets, tips and tricks to feeling and looking great!

At the age of 72, Stella is always being complimented on her youthful looks, her body shape and her glowing skin. She attributes this to the regimes and natural products she has used over the years, many of which were passed down the generations from her mother and grandmother, or were revealed to Stella whilst travelling to many fascinating destinations across the globe.

Sensual Sorcery is not just a book of health recipes and beauty tips; every
chapter includes one of Stella’s inspirational life quotes. It gives a comprehensive range of tips on how to have radiant, youthful looking skin, no matter what age. From how to recreate fruit-filled face masks to her homemade recipes to tackle conditions such as arthritis, acne and even stretchmarks.

Stella’s motivation for writing Sensual Sorcery was to help challenge the assumption that buying expensive beauty products is necessary. In fact, there are a huge range of natural products that provide beneficial properties for the body, both on the inside and out. By understanding these properties, Stella hopes that women will begin experimenting; using Sensual Sorcery as their guide.
