We can now follow in the beauty steps to achieve that immortal Japanese purity, snag some tips from Spanish chicas on how to party and still have that spotless radiance, and sneak a peek into the skincare secrets of the mysterious Orient.
In fact, if you are looking for a way to refine your current regime, here are a few essential guidelines straight from the most gorgeous ladies around the world that will make your skin happy and healthy!
Japanese ladies are inspired by nature
It seems that every girl you see from Asia somehow seems untouched by time. Their pale, but pure complexion gives them a gorgeous shine, so they strongly believe that you need little to no makeup to make yourself beautiful – that might burden your skin. So, go commando (but only makeup-wise!) and show off your natural beauty.
You also won’t be surprised to hear that they use their rice abundance in every aspect of their lives, skincare included. Make your own rice water cleanser to get rid of dirt residue in the gentlest possible way, nourish your skin and help its natural collagen production!
Aussie mermaids know their sun
These ladies surely know how to relish in their natural wonders, from their sizzling beaches to their coconut groves on nearby islands. But the key to maintaining wrinkle-free, undamaged skin while spending so much time in the sun lies in the perfect choice of the right makeup which contains sun protection and hydrates your skin.
Whether it’s a foundation or a splash of highlighter, every Aussie beauty chooses skincare and makeup such as Nude by Nature that have a sunscreen effect and safeguard their dazzling tan while basking in the sun!
A feast for the senses from India
Famous for their love for rituals, Indian ladies are well-versed in turning their beauty routine into a true hedonistic celebration for all your senses. They use natural ingredients to bring out your skin’s natural glow, purify your complexion and keep those zits away, while at the same time providing you with a sensory spectacle.
Mix in a tablespoon of raw honey with some freshly-squeezed lemon, blend the mixture well, and the sour-sweet concoction will do wonders for evening the texture of your skin. You like to spice things up? Add some turmeric as well! If you wish for this mask to have a more exfoliating effect, then you can even add some granulated sugar or oats and you’re good to go.
Spanish girls’ magic elixir
Don’t be fooled by the deceptive simplicity of this Mediterranean remedy – the fact that it’s made of a single ingredient and takes only ten minutes to work its magic is no reason to doubt it. Just look at those olive-skinned chicas and remember, they know their stuff, and if they say that a potato is your miracle cure for dark circles, then it sure as hell is!
All you need to do is cut your potato into a few slices, place them under your eyes, gently massage the area so that your sensitive skin soaks in the starchy goodies, and you’re all done in no more than ten minutes.
In Sweden, beauty comes from within
Drop that cheesecake and step away from the whipped cream-covered waffles! If you want your skin to restore and maintain its natural glow, look no further than your dinner plate. Swedish ladies know all too well that their diet is the key to longevity, but also to that spotless, youthful radiance. Make a fresh fruit salad every day, stick to healthy veggies, lean proteins and your skin will be nourished back to health.
Pro tip from the queens of north: visit your local sauna to help your body ditch those accumulated toxins. The practice also helps keep that rosy, smooth complexion and cleanse your pores thoroughly!
