The title of the book says it all! Most women do not realise their own Naked Beauty. Yet when we are able to appreciate and pamper ourselves, we discover an enchanting queendom within us! To live in this magical domain called the physical body temple without consciously caring for it is akin to criminal neglect. Shakaya’s book Naked Beauty, provides a very important and necessary guide to embracing our female beauty, caring of it and reasons for rejoicing in this incredible gift that is ours to share with the world! I highly recommend this book as a sure hit for every woman who takes the time to follow the treasured advice and tips offered!

We are reminded of the ancient wisdom of our ancestors who knew that nature has all we need to restore health, energy, balance and beauty from the inside out. Shakaya’s words inspire us to nourish ourselves – literally and figuratively – and ask us to reflect on what we put in our bodies, and on our bodies. She shows us that the fruit, vegetables, greens, flowers, spices and herbs that are not only delicious, they also have hidden medicinal and beautifying properties, and she shares simple recipes, and tips for soothing physical symptoms and imbalances, and restoring well-being.

I have a friend. She has a dream; a dream where every woman is beautiful, sensual and inspired. A dream where every woman has embraced her femininity and feels loved and empowered. No one who carries more magic and inspiration in her heart than Shakaya Leone. She is the most sensual and inspiring woman I have ever known!
Naked Beauty showed up in a whirlwind time of my life when it felt like I could not keep up any longer with the accelerating rhythm of my never ending to do list. What a gift it was… It showed me how simple it is to make the most satisfying and totally indulgent spa treatments at home. And, how essential it is to take time for pampering and dreaming. Especially during the whirlwind times!
I feel Shakaya was destined to write this book. I am savoring each and every word she has placed so lovingly into the enchanting spell of Naked Beauty…she is like a natural spring of wisdom… overflowing, refreshing, real and truly nourishing…how can all that ever be contained in one book? I hope there will be many more!

Wow, I couldn’t put the book down.
Naked Beauty is wonderfully written. I can’t wait to try all the recipes and treatments! It’s a beauty bible that every woman must own.
Thank you Shakaya for sharing your inspiring knowledge with the world.
Shakaya Leone has created the perfect woman’s guide to self-empowerment, health and well being. Her personal growth amplifies to all that reads Naked Beauty that we are on ajourney of deep inner love and devotion – Shakaya touches the mind, body and soul of all of us. I’m honored and proud to have Shakaya as part of my team of writers in Women with Vision!™ Magazine.
The largest growth area in the beauty industry today is related to aging. Women are spending millions of dollars on anti-aging products in the hopes of retaining their youthful look. As a former model and raw foodist of 2 decades now at the age of 50, I believe that health and beauty are directly connected, and that detoxifying and alkalizing the body with live plant foods are the key factors for beauty, health and longevity. Shakaya’s “Naked Beauty” is an invaluable read that will inspire you to embrace your own beauty, and glow from the inside out.
Shakaya is an extraordinary woman of vision and insight. Her heart-filled book “Naked Beauty” is complete with practical tips, fun treatments, pampering suggestions, delicious recipes and resources to give you all you need to live a healthier, more youthful and rewarding life. Not only is Naked Beauty a guide to wellness, it is a user’s manual for the soul!

Shakaya has gorgeously redefined the word ‘beauty’. I find her passion and enthusiasm absolutely contagious! Naked Beauty inspired in me a delicious sense of FREEDOM and reminded me of something that I had let myself forget; that attitude, celebration and appreciation for uniqueness are essential. And, how inextricably linked health and beauty are.
The chapter BECOMING IRRESISTIBLE just blew me away and really set the tone for me. It helped me see that the lens I view myself through sometimes can become cloudy. Reading Naked Beauty helped me to pinpoint the places I was self-sabotaging myself and reminded me of the undeniable truth that our thoughts and perceptions play a huge role in what we refer to as ‘beauty’. And, that our diet is one of the foundational building blocks of those very thoughts! I love how Naked Beauty ties it all into one alluring package; the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of true, natural, lasting, feral, feminine beauty that goes far beyond the mirror.
Now, I am pampering and nurturing myself in ways I never dreamed of. Now that I have Naked Beauty I think I’ll just skip the midlife crisis since I’m having the time of my life reaping the benefits of her research and experience. Can you tell I love this book?
When I ﬁrst received and read Shakayaʼs book Naked Beauty, I felt so beautiful and peaceful. Raw living foods changed my life after discovering I have Celiac Disease which turned into full blown auto-immune disease. What I learned in Naked Beauty though, is that you have to be Holistically Healthy…Mind, Body and Spirit. While living foods brought my body back, loving myself unconditionally made me whole! I realised that ‘If I donʼt love me…how will anyone else ever love me the way I want them to?’ Shakayaʼs love for ALL women is evident in her writing, and this book will show you how to be a Naked Beauty…Loving Yourself so that you can love and be loved!
Every woman should buy this book AND every man who loves his woman should buy a copy as a gift!
Wellness Guide & Lover of Life
Shakaya reminds us of several things we women forget, to our detriment and sorrow. First, we are unique, beautiful creatures who need to thrive in order to nourish others. Second, that health must be our most important consideration because it impacts every aspect of our bodies and our lives…including our beauty. I look forward to trying the recipes and beauty treatments in this book!
As an Environmental Science major, I can testify that we ingest and absorb too many chemicals through food/beverages and personal care products. These chemicals can be quite harmful, and I look forward to using Shakaya’s teachings to clear my home of some of the worst offenders. Thank you for writing this book! I’ve very much enjoyed reading it, and will be sure to keep your words in mind as I continue to move through life.
Shakaya and I are in alignment regarding beauty and health. Our face and body is a reflection of our inner joy.When you feel healthy on the inside, it shows on the outside.The more women and men embrace the ideas in her new book, Naked Beauty, the faster we can heal the energy on our planet.
Thank-you Shakaya for inspiring women to discover joy and empowerment through self care! Using your own healing journey as the impetus to teach and inspire others is wisdom in action. Naked Beauty speaks to the fundamental link between health and beauty and his book carries essential gems to support us in achieving both.
