Utilizing the benefits of antioxidants, which help skin cells fight off free radicals found in the environment like UV rays and airborne pollutants, this book helps make beauty and health synonymous with each other. The book contains more than 120 antioxidant-rich recipes and more than 75 “Beauty Bytes,” which are recipes for natural beauty remedies and topical treatments made from 100 percent natural ingredients found in most kitchens.

Planning to drink apple cider during Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow or eat a salad with apple cider vinegar on it? According to this book, it can do more than just taste good. To experience the skincare benefits of this ingredient, fill up a spray bottle with a 1:1 ratio of apple cider vinegar to purified water and spritz on the face and body to help tighten and tone the skin.

American Spa Scores Multiple Folio Awards

awards09I spend a lot of time on the road, both at spas and at trade shows, and the most common thing I hear from my readers is, “American Spa is my favorite magazine. I read it from cover-to-cover and even tear out pages to pass along to my staff.” It is incredibly fulfilling to know that the efforts of my team are so appreciated by our industry. And it turns out, the spa world isn’t the only one impressed by our magazine. The publishing world is equally enthused. For the fourth year in a row, American Spa has been tapped for editorial excellence from FOLIO:, a leading publishing industry magazine. A panel of 60 expert judges sifted through more than 2,000 entries this year and honored American Spa with two gold Eddie trophies—one for Best Overall Issue for the October 2008 edition and one for Best Single Article for “There’s The Rub” by Peggy Wynne Borgman, which was published in June 2008.

I’m so excited to share this news, and I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to my team. Click here to meet the staff of American Spa magazine and access all of our email accounts. We’d love to hear your feedback about the award and the magazine itself. What do you think about American Spa, and what can we do to improve and serve you better? I’d like to continue receiving these annual FOLIO: honors, and the only way we can do that is by maintaining our position as the industry’s most valuable publication.
