Living on a tiny, remote island in the Caribbean, former model India Hicks has developed a reverence for the most essential elements of life: breathing in the fresh air, surrounded by cleansing water, standing on the bare earth, taking hold of time. In Island Beauty, the inspired sequel to Island Life, Hicks shares her holistic approach, demonstrating how "island wisdom" can help women everywhere to rejuvenate both their outer and their inner selves.

Hicks offers a multitude of island-inspired ideas and daily practices, covering everything from exercise and eating well to meditation and detoxification. Every chapter includes lore from the island's elders, quick tips for a healthier lifestyle, and easy-to-make, all-natural recipes for body treatments (Avocado Cleanser, Exuma Salt Glow, Hibiscus Hair Shampoo) and snacks (Grilled Lobster and Mango Salsa, Papaya Aloe Smoothie, Sleepy Tea). Graced with stunning photographs by David Loftus that capture the beauty and tranquility of the people and their setting, Island Beauty will encourage every woman-whether she lives on a tropical island or in a city apartment-to embrace nature and to lead a calmer, healthier life.
