Each culture has its own secrets regarding health and beauty tips. In Korea, women follow a specific skin care routine consisting of ten steps, and in Egypt, rose water was the secret of Cleopatra’s beauty.
The best natural beauty secrets from around the world, which are easy to apply and inexpensive, according to a report published by the Spanish magazine « Fuchia« , you can choose what suits you:
Singapore … Avocado Moisturizing Mask Avocado
Is a staple of many diets, but we certainly did not consider making it a face mask. It is advisable to try this, following in the footsteps of Singapore women who trust the benefits of avocado to get moist and healthy skin, because this fruit contains beneficial oils for the skin. To make an avocado mask, you must crush an avocado after peeling it and apply it to the face, then leave it for 15 minutes before washing the face with water.
Panama … Drink cocoa (not chocolate)
When we think of cocoa, hot chocolate comes to mind, but it is not about this type of cocoa in this case. On the San Blas Islands of Panama, the Kona drinks five or more cups of pure and natural cocoa daily. Scientists believe that may be the secret of the longevity of its inhabitants. It is believed that cocoa can reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke and diabetes by 10%.
Cocoa contains flavonoids, or powerful antioxidants, that make cocoa a beneficial beverage for cardiovascular health. You can try it yourself by adding a tablespoon of pure cocoa powder and a teaspoon of honey to a cup of warm milk.
Brazil … Calming a sunburn with oatflakes
Residents of Brazil believe in the effectiveness of oat flakes in treating sunburn, and this makes perfect sense, because oats have anti-inflammatory properties, making them an ideal treatment for any type of burn. In this case, place an amount of oatmeal in a gauze pad, then wrap the remaining gauze in a bag shape and tie it around the bathtub faucet.
This way, cold water can flow through the bag until the bathtub is filled with water containing the oatmeal. After that, you can shower in this water for a period of 20-30 minutes and you will feel that the burns gradually disappear.
Mexico … The spoon to beautify eyelashes
In Mexico, women use kitchen utensils in their beauty regimen, especially spoons, which work just like eyelash curlers. In this case, you should hold the spoon horizontally with one hand until it covers your eyelid, making sure that the edge of the spoon touches the upper roots of the eyelashes. Using your thumb, press your eyelashes on the back of the spoon, then push the edge of the spoon to the ends of the eyelashes. Repeat the process as many times as necessary before applying mascara.
Turkey … Chamomile water to lighten hair color
Although many believe that the best thing to lighten hair is the sun, the truth confirms that chamomile water is one of the best natural mixtures that do this task. All you have to do is boil chamomile in two cups of water for a few minutes. After that, leave the mixture until it cools, then remove the plant from the cup and pour water on the hair. We should let the hair dry automatically after pouring water on it without rinsing it.
China … Cleaning the face with ricewater
Trains use rice water to clean the face without resorting to using many types of face wash and rinsing it with water. And rice water is full of antioxidants that help cleanse and prevent skin aging. However, we need to use authentic Chinese rice to ensure the trial is successful.
And we can get this natural lotion by soaking rice in pure water for 20 minutes. We pass the rice water on the face for ten minutes, then wipe the face with a wet towel. Do this once a week and you will notice a great difference in your complexion.
South Africa … Moisturizing the body with shea butter
We usually use a lot of moisturizing creams to get the result we want. But South African women prefer to use shea butter, the natural product they know well. It is noteworthy that shea butter is very beneficial, especially in cold climates where our skin is more prone to drying out. Also, some women use it as a moisturizing mask or hair conditioner without rinsing it off.
Romania … Soaking nails with olive oil
We always hear about the magical benefits of olive oil in terms of health and beauty, especially in moisturizing hair. But women in Romania confirmed that olive oil is the best remedy for brittle nails. Olive oil makes nails strong, moisturized, and less likely to peel or break. It is preferable to do this process once every two weeks to get stronger and healthier nails.
Australia … Sea water A magic hair styling solution
Australian women fill in sea water in a sprayer to use with great ease. Although some stores sell this water, they do not need to buy it.
