Beauty Tips From Around The World
by Andrea Young
Isn’t it amazing how everyone communicates, but every country has a new language (and even a different language within that country).
We all have our day to day lives, but different cultures have different traditions?
And how everyone has skin, but different places take care of it differently?
FRANCE The women are keeping it simple. They don't use cleanser, simply wash their face with water, keep make up to a minimum, but never forget to wear perfume!
GREECE Have you ever noticed how Greek food is cooked in olive oil instead of butter/margarine? This is how Greek women take care of their skin. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and vitamins, which are essential ‘skin food’, giving skin it’s healthy glow.
SPAIN Do you get dark circles under your eyes? Try cutting thin potato slices and putting them on top of your eyes for ten minutes - just like the Spanish women
SWEDISH WOMEN Totally into antioxidants and detoxing their bodies. As well as drinking green tea, they use the used tea bags as a toner on their skin (reduce, reuse, recycle!).
Saunas are also a great way to rid the body of toxins, and are super popular in Sweden!
Lastly, instead of washing your face with tap water, swap it for a splash of icy mineral water. This will firm up your skin and reduce puffiness around the eyes.
CHINA Do you have stretch marks? Camellia oil is used daily by Chinese women to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, as well as other skin discolouration. (Try our Camellia Bio Spray).
The list is endless with tips and tricks from women around the world, often easy and inexpensive.
