Have you ever envied a French woman for her dainty and delicate beauty or a Brazilian lass for her perfectly chiselled body? If there’s one thing that we can’t deny, it has to be the fact that there is beauty all over the globe. Here’s a list of well-thought-out beauty rituals for you to shake up your normal regime and put your best foot forward.
At some point in our lives, all of us have begrudged Brazilian women for their flawless bodies. Not only are they blessed with natural beauty, they also go to great lengths to take care of themselves. Their beauty regimen involves the use of a lot of natural ingredients like oats. They believe that this cereal grain provides great nourishment for the skin. Along with being rich in vitamins and minerals, oats possess anti-inflammatory properties that ease off the pain of sunburn and speed the process of healing. One can prepare a paste of milk and oatmeal, apply it on the affected area and rinse it off once it dries.
Want to get rid of cellulite? Borrow the famous dry brushing technique from them. This technique involves brushing gently up and towards the collarbone, in semicircular motions, till the skin becomes slightly red. Dry brushing works by causing microscopic scratches on the skin’s surface. This increases blood circulation in the brushed area, renewing and rejuvenating the skin. Make sure to use a long brush with natural bristles.
Balkan beauties use a lot of organic products to maintain their gorgeous skin and glossy locks, which makes their beauty secrets worth stealing. Bulgarian yoghurt is favoured to calm and soothe the skin. It also relieves pain and redness caused by sunburns. Bulgarian women use a lot of this dairy product to achieve that natural glow. While rose water is universally used as a facial cleanser, easy access to roses makes it easier for Bulgarian natives to make fresh face cleansers. You can prepare rose water by either diluting rose oil in water or boiling a tea out of rose petals and straining the liquid.
We may admire French women for their laissez-faire beauty approach, but they have their own secrets for their flawless beauty. French women use milk for their smooth and glowing skin. Adding two to three cups of milk to the bath along with some honey is proved beneficial for the skin. The lactic acid present in milk helps smoothen the skin while honey moisturises and heals it.
The thick black winged liner look we love today finds its roots in Egypt. Their homemade kohl contains low levels of lead that protects their eyes from the sun and boosts the skin’s ability to fight infections. Egyptians use a blend of castor, sesame and moringa oil to fight wrinkles and preserve their youthful appearance. For their crystal clear skin, they often mix honey and milk to create moisturising masks. The mask is known to kill germs and bacteria and also keeps the skin hydrated.
Greece enjoys easy availability of Olive oil. This natural oil is one of the secrets behind the impeccable complexion of Greek women. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, olive oil is a regular part of their diet. They also use it to moisturise and hydrate their skin and body. Olive oil is also proved beneficial to calm burns and relieve irritation and redness.
Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree that is endemic to Morocco. Moroccans use this plant oil for beauty and almost everything. It is easily absorbed by the skin which makes it an excellent moisturiser. It is also used as a leave-in conditioner for making hair easy to be combed and styled. You can also use it for the same purpose; just massage a few drops of the oil to your ends to tame unruly and frizzy hair.
To keep their beauty of their skin ageless, Japanese women treat their skin with a lot of care. They never rub it harshly or use too many chemicals on their skin. Japanese women love their cup of matcha green tea. Matcha green tea is a popular Japanese green tea, rich in antioxidants and minerals.Drinking this tea helps combat ageing. It also detoxifies the body, keeping the skin flawless. Lately, Indians have also started inculcating it in their diet.
