Beauty Tips From Around the World

Australia: ERASE STRETCH MARKS

Australian women avoid stretch marks with the help of the moisturizing and hydrating properties of yarrow extract.

Chile: MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW

Chilean women make a paste out of grapes to help make their skin glow. They create it by mashing up a handful of the fruit and adding 2 tablespoons of white flour. They then apply the mask to their face and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing it off. The antioxidants of the grapes work their magic.

 

Dominican Republic: MAKE NAILS STRONG

Women from the Dominican Republic use garlic to make their nails super strong. They chop up fresh garlic, add it to a bottle of clear nail polish and let it stew for 7 to 10 days. There might be an initial smell, but it will go away leaving your nails strong.

 

Egypt: SOFTEN SKIN WITH MILK

Egyptian women add powdered milk to their baths in order to soften their skin. Try adding 2 cups of powdered milk to your next bath and feel the difference.

 

France: CHERRIES AND POMEGRANATE FIRM SKIN

French women take a series of preventative skincare measures: they take off their make-up religiously each night, and get weekly facials and massages. But when facials become a bit too pricey, they apply mashed up cherries and pomegranate seeds for 6 minutes to firm and rejuvenate the skin with natural enzymes. And they make sure to remove the mask with a warm towel at the end to boost circulation.

 

Greece: GREAT SKIN WITH OLIVE OIL

Not only do Greek women have a healthy, skin-friendly diet of berries and fish, but they also cook their food with olive oil because it helps their skin glow.

 

Israel: HEAL SKIN WITH SEA SALT

Israeli people believe that sea salt, like the one that can be found in the dead sea, can have healing properties. There have even been stories that the sea heals severe skin diseases. To get the detoxifying benefits of sea salt at home, mix together ¼ cup sea salt, 1 pinch seaweed powder, ½ cup massage oil and 10 to 15 drops lavender oil. Apply to skin to gently exfoliate.

 

Italy: YOGURT HELPS GLOSS YOUR LOCKS

Italian women attribute their beautiful, glossy hair to yogurt. They mix one cup of plain, whole-milk yogurt with one tea spoon of olive oil and apply it to washed hair. They let it sit for 5 minutes and rinse it off. Talk about a yummy conditioner.

 

Japan: SEAWEED FOR LONG, SILKY HAIR

Nori seaweed is a rich source of iodine, which is an integral mineral for healthy hair growth. Japanese women take full advantage of its beauty properties: they either eat or wet seaweed in boiling water and apply it to their dry hair.

 

Spain: GET HIGHLIGHTS FROM CRANBERRY JUICE

Spanish women love to soak their hair in cranberry juice and let it dry in the sun because it gives them great, natural highlights. It works amazing on brunettes. For blondes, chamomile tea is recommended. WARNING: Do NOT use lemon because it will dry out your hair.

 

Sweden: HOME MADE TONER TO BOOST SKIN

For a natural, homemade toner: boil mineral water with a green tea or white tea bag, let the tea infuse the water and then freeze it into ice cubes to use instead of a toner.

  1. first off I’m almost 17, I have noraml skin the occasional pimple and thick pretty much straight hair I use both drugstore and higher end makeup I won’t spend over 25 dollars on a single product. I like to spend under 15my mom buys me the occasional mascara or eyeliner if I run out, everything else I’m on my own.skin care I don’t really have a set or anything because I’ve used a clinique system and then random stuff and my skin looks the same but I like the cetaphil cleanser, witch hazel as a toner and cetaphil moisturizer. Hair care- I use herbal essences hello hydration shampoo and conditioner. Best.stuff.ever. I have oily hair at the roots but this makes my hair so soft without making it greasy. I usually curl my hair- looks way better. So I ALWAYS use a heat protectant on it I like the Tresemme one. it’s black with a red spray top. and I like Tresseme Tres two hair sprayMy favorite products over all- Mac eyeshadows- amazing quality and if you get them in pan form 11 dollars isn’t bad. I like all that glitters, satin taupe, mulch, sable, naked lunch, espresso, vapour, tempting. Mac select coverup concealer- really good for under eye circles and on the face and you get a LOT of product. Mac studio fix powder- powder foundation, really easy to travel with. Mac Vanilla pigment- i sue this as an eyeshadow, cheek highlight and sometimes in the center of my lips to make them look a little fuller. Cover girl lashblash mascara and shimmering sands eyeshadows. only mascara I really like and best drugstore eyeshadow around. Maybelline color sensational lipstick in born with it- light baby pink I wear it a ton. Maybelling dream smooth mousse- a creme foundation It photographs really well and it gives nice coverage and looks natural. Milani liquif’eye eyeliners- I have black and brown they are SO soft and smooth and I liek these better then urban decay liners. My nars blush- such great quality, very expensive but they’re so pigmented you only need a little so it’s not that bad. Revlon super lustrous lipglosses- hands down my favorite lipglosses from anywhere. they’re pigmented without being goopy or sticky and I love all of themHope I helped!
