“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” we hear this all the time. Having flawless skin, however, only helps to illuminate your beauty. Did you ever find yourself wondering exactly what a skincare treatment consists of in other countries? Each country has resources that they are able to capitalize on in terms of beauty treatments. For this reason, no two skincare treatments around the world are exactly alike. Here you will find some of the most popular, yet unique skincare treatments that exist around the world.
New Zealand is famous for many things, including their plant life. With over 85% of plants that do not exist elsewhere, the country and its residents have natural resources to use for skincare treatments that would not otherwise be available in other countries. Manuka Honey, for example, is great when used in facial masks.
While the main ingredient used in some skincare treatments is available in the US, using parsley as a way to reduce hyper-pigmentation is very popular in Hungary. Hyper-pigmentation occurs when there is an excess of melanin and the pigment becomes darker in some areas of the skin. Parsley can help alleviate the darkening of the skin. Some people grind up parsley to be used in a mask while others simply include it in their diets.
Dead Sea Mud has been mentioned in many beauty articles as a way of combating toxins within the skin. Ever prominent in many facial masks, Dead Sea Mud is also good for smoothing the skin and relieving any impurities such as acne or rosacea. Dead Sea Mud has also been known to improve circulation and to gently exfoliate the skin. Only available from the Dead Sea in Jordan, manufacturers import this mud as a luxury in their cosmetic skincare products.
Japan is one of those countries where beauty is highly relished. To keep their skin as young looking as possible, Japanese women turn to two different products: collagen infused materials such as beef tendons and bird droppings. The bird droppings are limited to nightingales. The droppings are ground up into a powder then combined with soap to make a face wash that many Japanese women swear by.
India is notorious for its use of spices in cooking, but that is not all the spices are used for. Indian women like to use some of the most prevalent spices in Indian cuisine to foster beautiful skin. Turmeric, honey and lemon are common ingredients that a woman in India will use to create a natural glow on her skin. This glow is considered to make a woman more attractive, especially on her wedding day.
Skincare remedies vary across the world. Many are traditions that were handed down amongst generations. Others are developed over time with blind trials of resources. All are unique to the nations in which they derive and all are used in an attempt to be beautiful and to have flawless skin.
