This engaging book explains how our ancestors lived deeply rooted in and reliant on nature, though now we have lost our connection with the elements that once sustained us. The author takes us on a trip to the not too distant past when our lives were integrated with nature, which furnished our health and beauty.
She exposes the philosophy that caused this shift and examines why and when we withdrew from the natural world around us, and the devastating health, emotional, and cultural problems that resulted. Along the way, she reviews historical definitions of beauty from ancient Egypt to Plato, the Renaissance and Enlightenment periods, and the Golden Mean.
Anyone stuck in perpetual loops of new products, facials, and dermatologist appointments will find answers as Artemis introduces the energizing elements of sun, fresh air, water, the earth, and plants. She invites readers to ditch their regimes and simplify their routines as she leads us on a joyful journey of cellular rejuvenation. Tackling common beauty complaints, she offers practical botanical, microbial, and dietary suggestions to rejuvenate the cells, reenergize health, and allow beauty to bloom.
She draws on current nutrition research to advise us about which foods are health sustaining and which should be avoided. As we shift toward chemical free and environmentally safe self-care products, this book is a comprehensive guide for anyone who wants to simplify their self-care routine, discover their own radiant beauty, and take their health into their own hands.

Praise for Renegade Beauty
What is beauty? We all feel that a redefinition is in order, but the pioneers in this shift may come from a surprising arena.
That is the intersection of science and spirituality, a vanguard front of change that will transform us from the inside out leaving us feeling nurtured, whole, and finally comfortable in our own skin.
Renegade Beauty is a guide to this new terrain, complete with a personal roadmap for your own experience of beauty from the practical to the etheric.
More than simply a beauty book, this is one of the most comprehensive guides to the new paradigm of health and medicine including essential myth-busting and evidence-based tips for true health and wellness.
“A long-time fan and supporter of Nadine’s alchemical creations, this text reminds us how to get exactly where we most
desire to go – home to the web of wonder that is the natural world. This book has soared to the top of my list for awakened vitality and self-healing.
∼ KELLY BROGAN MD, Holistic Psychiatrist and Author of The NY Times Bestseller, A Mind of Your Own
“Renegade Beauty melted me into the revelation that my body will heal –– and beautify –– if
I stop short-circuiting it’s power with chemicals and quick fixes.
The beauty industry is a disempowering (and toxic) industry. Nadine’s type of knowledge is the lotion and potion we need to apply.”
∼ DANIELLE LAPORTE, author of The Desire Map and White Hot Truth
“Nadine Artemis has been my essential oil mentor since I was 19 years old.
She is a savant alchemist whose teachings are on the front lines of the self-care movement.
I recommend her products and her teachings of profound visionary service to any and all.”
∼ ALANIS MORISSETTE
“Renegade Beauty poetically demonstrates Nadine’s devotion to glorifying true beauty
— our inner beauty— and explores the ways we can harmonize with nature’s healing gifts and natural rhythms.
A beautiful and unique book that offers far more than the beauty routine you might expect!”
∼ ANTHONY WILLIAM, Author of Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal
“Simply reading Renegade Beauty made me feel more beautiful.
Nadine’s scientific and poetic style equals the lavish abundance of nature that she extols to restore.
I loved reading about beauty from Nadine’s perspective.”
