If you are obsessed with beauty recipes and are always looking for something new to try, why not check out what beauty secrets women in other countries follow? While each culture has a different perception of beauty, they all have one thing in common: the desire to stay youthful through beautiful skin, healthy hair and a fit body. Just because you are not from that country, that does not mean that you can’t try out their beauty secrets for yourself. From Japan to Africa and Thailand, you can easily do these recipes right from the comfort of your own home.
# Japan #
Japan tends to be one of the most innovative countries that always take a new twist on the latest trends. Beauty is a major industry in Japan, with Japanese women spending millions, if not billions of dollars on skincare and anti-aging products each year. Instead of going under the knife or turning to treatments like Botox to reduce and eliminate the signs of fine lines and wrinkles, Japanese women prefer to eat
collagen rather than have it injected into their complexions. You heard right: Japanese women consume food that has been fused with collagen. There is even a company that specializes in manufacturing and distributing these special collagen food items, including collagen infused beef tendons. If you think that eating collagen is unthinkable then you might not take too well to another Japanese beauty secret, which involves the use of nightingale droppings to create face wash. By purchasing the droppings in powder form and mixing it with soap, Japanese women believe their complexions will stay soft, supple and youthful.
# Africa #
In Africa, women keep their beauty recipes more on the all natural side that does not involve eating collagen or using the droppings of animals on their faces. Instead, African women maintain youthful and glowing complexions through the use of olive oil. This one ingredient alone can be used in a number of ways, including moisturizing lotion for dry skin on the hair as a hot oil treatment and even as a moisturizing lip balm. To treat itchy and dry scalp, African women turn to honey, which works as an anti-inflammatory to reduce the symptoms of a swollen scalp caused by dandruff. By applying the honey to the affected area and leaving it on for 20 minutes and then rinsing, this works as a natural remedy against dandruff.
# Thai #
Thai women are known for being very beautiful and there are a number of beauty recipes they turn to in order to maintain their youthful and exotic appearance. Two of the most common beauty recipes Thai women use regularly includes the papaya face mask and turmeric facial scrub. To create the papaya face mask remove the flesh of the fruit directly from the papaya and mix with a few drops of lemon juice from a fresh lemon. Apply this mixture to your complexion and let it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water. The antioxidants not only keep your face clean, it can prevent fine lines and wrinkles from developing. To create a gentle exfoliator, purchase turmeric in powder form and pour a small amount into your hand and mix with water to create a paste. After wetting your face, apply the scrub and work it into your skin for 5 minutes and then wash off. If your skin appears a bit orange, soap and water will remove the color.
