Internationally-Inspired Beauty: What Really Works?
With so much hype in the beauty world, it’s difficult to determine what products can actually contribute to overall health and appearance and which products are merely myths. Certain cultures swear by specific products that have been used for hundreds of years. Jet Charter your way to these centuries old beauty secrets. Though word of mouth is their only bond, the following products are backed by true believers.
- 1. Olive Oil
Olive Oil has long been used in the Mediterranean region as an essential beauty product. The Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians applied the oil to their skin, hair, and nails, and also believed that ingesting the oil could promote beauty from the inside out. Olive oil’s primary use is to promote moisture and regenerate damaged cells. Olive Oil is still used today, but it’s best to purchase a beauty product that contains Olive Oil rather than applying it in its original form. Pure Olive Oil can leave a greasy feel and a slight odor, which can also be a pitfall for acne-prone skin. If you want to incorporate Olive Oil into your beauty regimen, try Greek products straight from the source.
- 2. Green Tea
The Japanese have known for ages about the beauty benefits of green tea, and the green tea phenomenon has caught on internationally. The tea has been proven to assist in weight loss and the reduction of belly fat, especially when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Additionally, green tea is full of antioxidants, which is why it is also used topically. Using a cream, lotion, or mask with properly formulated green tea can help prevent wrinkles and fight free radicals.
- 3. Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil has been used in the past for both cooking and beauty in places that had access to coconuts or coconut trade. Today, the oil is still used for both purposes. Use of the oil is most popular in India, where long, shiny tresses are highly desirable. Unlike some oils, coconut oil can be used successfully in its pure form. Massage the oil (preferably organic), into the scalp and along the ends. Brush through and top it off with a shower cap or warm towel. After the oil has warmed, rinse hair thoroughly and scrub out all remaining oil. You will be left with soft, shimmering hair.
These are just a few beauty practices that continue to withstand time. Their application can be more effective than a lot of the gimmicky products on the market today.
