Righteous Love. Outlasts Generations.
Traditional beauty rituals have been passed down by generations in every culture. Indonesian women use natural remedies like Shirodara, a holistic therapy, in spas as a healing mechanism and to ease a troubled mind. Lying flat on a bed or table, a vessel filled with warm oil, milk, or extracts drips a rhythmic stream onto your forehead or other parts of the body.
Not only nourishing the skin and healing certain skin diseases, but also treating eye diseases, head, neck and olfactory syndromes, provides hair treatments, insomnia, nervous disorders
and tension headaches. This treatment opens up the mind, soothes, and cleanses the body of toxins.
In Japan, women add three to four cups of sake to their bath to enhance a glowing skin. Sake contains kojic acid, which exfoliates the skin and helps to lighten up spots and blemishes. The Japanese even say that body lotion after a sake soak is not needed, because
their skin feels smooth and hydrated. Also Egyptian women use milk baths as an exfoliating and highly hydrating treatment.
Using butter to tighten the muscles in the vagina seems a bit farfetched, but in Ethiopia, women have used this beauty ritual for years. After a massage at certain spas, women are given butter to spread around their private parts, after which they are taken to a separate room. Women are covered in blankets, and while sitting down steam is released throughout the room until all butter has melted. Apparently it’s a popular treatment among women who recently gave birth.
In some Asian cultures, instead of using soap or any other face wash, some Chinese women swear by cleansing their faces with rice. Rice is rich in antioxidants and will help prevent premature aging of the skin. Soak Chinese rice in bowl water for 20 minutes, strain the water, and use as a toner and/or scrub the rice on your face for 10 minutes.
Oatmeal = Sunburn
Brazilian women soak themselves in oatmeal to reduce the effects of sunburn. Take gauze bandage, and tie it up with oatmeal inside and throw it in the bath. Then soak up in a cool oatmeal bath for about 20 minutes. According to Brazilians, grains are anti-inflammatory thus a great remedy.
Oak Leaf Exfoliation
Russians use a broom brushed over their body, and it is said that oak leaves contain a natural astringent, which opens up pores, removes toxins and exfoliates the skin.
Chinese women use an ancient practice with jade rollers! It is used to cool and smooths out puffiness to maintain younger, healthier looking skin.
French women are noted for using a mask twice a week according to recent research.
French women love to treat their skin very regularly to keep it healthy and glowing. Also, they make sure the use of natural ingredients for face masks are present, for highest benefits of antioxidants.
Sand & Cellulite
Brazilian women use sand on their skin to increase circulation and decrease cellulite! At home alternatives if you aren't always at the beach include coffee grounds, sea salt, and raw sugar.
We all envy the carefree beauty of Aussie girls, in particular the Aboriginal women, use yarrow root. It is a special herb that is incredible for moisturizing and it's renewing power. These women love to use it to prevent stretch marks as well as to hydrate.
