Do you ever wonder what women of the world use to have flawless skin, shiny hair, or anti-aging regimens? Some cultures keep their beauty care under lock and key and hold on to them through generation to generation. It is usually simple recipe that you can find in your own home that bring the best results. Check out a few that I found from around the world.
China – Mix white tea and green tea powder with lemon juice. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Is used as an anti-aging mask. White tea has antioxidants and is a young tea that is amazing for preventing wrinkles.
Italy – An anti-aging exfoliant. 1 cup crushed red grapes with 2 tbs flour. The grapes pulls the toxin from the skin and exfoliates the dead skin off your face. Will give your face a natural glow.
Japan – 2 drops of White Camellia Nut Oil, the most rapidly absorbed oil in the world, and mix it with 1 shot of Saki. This mix is super hydrating and is a secret to fading hyper pigmentation and age spots. This is a wonderful secret to bright, glowing, flawless skin. If you feel like your skin is looking dull, take a warm bath with 2 cups sake.
Dominican Republic – Club soda is the secret for gorgeous, bright, non-frizzy hair. Use as your final rinse and it will take down the frizzies in your hair. Club soda contains bicarbonate that is a salty mix and removes your hair of product build up, shampoo residue and over styling to make it bright and beautiful.
Egypt – Take a milk bath. Add 2 cups of powdered milk or 3 cups of warm whole milk. Milk contains vitamin A and D that helps make skin soft and strong. It also contains the favorite ingredient to skincare lines, beta hydroxy acid. A natural exfoliant to clear dead skin cells, and soothe and comfort your new skin cells by the natural ingredients in milk. It is perfect if you have dry skin because the milk conditions your skin and leaves it soft and glowing. This was a favorite beauty secret of Cleopatra.
India – When you feel your hair is dry and needing some love, try putting olive oil on the ends of your hair, wrap in towel for 15 minutes, then rinse. Full of vitamin E to give you back your lustrous locks.
Is Penelope Cruz supposed to represent Italy? She’s Spanish! And hispanic and Italian looks are not the same. :-/

Raffaella, you are exactly right. I don’t know why I had Penelope, I know she is Spanish. I have fixed it now. Thanks for pointing out my error.
