Esthetician to the stars Raisa Ruder learned her time-tested beauty techniques from her Ukrainian grandmother (or babushka, as they say in the old country). Now everyone can discover the all-natural, better-than-botox secrets the Hollywood stars use to shine on the red carpet! Ruder reveals her sought-after beauty recipes that can fight wrinkles, plump lips, and eliminate crow’s feet and acne, using inexpensive, everyday grocery items like eggs, honey, vegetable oil and strawberries (and a splash of vodka for freshness!). At last, by popular demand, Raisa Ruder opens up her babushka’s secret pantry and shares her most amazing and effective beauty advice:

Skin-saving Souffles – whipped up wonders that shrink pores, brighten skin, and diminish lines
Chocolate weight-loss wrap- a moment on the hips, tightens, tucks, and nips!
Hot hair- a cayenne pepper blend that leaves locks silky, soft, and full
PediPure- a soothing, smoothing foot scrub made with milk and mint
Lustrous Lashes – a simple castor oil serum that thickens and lengthens
Perfect Pucker- a mix of salt, green tea, and fruit that plumps up lips naturally
And much more…
