Lets take a peek around the globe!
Somalia: Embrace multitasking beauty
There are only so many hours in a day, so women in Somalia have found a way to squeeze in their beauty rituals.
They wear face masks and hair treatments around the house as they cook, tend the kids and do other chores. The typical face mask is a homemade concoction that blends the spices turmeric and basil with water.
In their hair, they apply henna for natural color.
Japan: Slap yourself silly
You don’t need to handle your skin with kid gloves.
In Japan, women apply moisturizers, serums, and more with vigor.
They slap on facial products to stimulate circulation and to avoid tugging on skin with rubbing motions. In fact, American beauty mogul Elizabeth Arden followed this technique, using spoon-like utensils to slap product onto the skin.
Scandinavia: Saunas are your friend
Heating things up in a sauna is the secret beauty weapon of women in Scandinavian countries.
They believe the treatment helps detoxify the body of impurities and view it as part of an overall healthy lifestyle that promotes natural beauty.
Plus, it’s a nice warm escape from the chilly climate.
Australia: Want beach wave hair?
They don’t bother with processed sea salt.
Aussie women typically don’t waste money on store-bought products for tousled, beachy waves.
Instead, they commonly collect sea water when they’re at the beach and pour it into a spray bottle to style their hair at home. Judging by the effortless, natural look that sheilas are known for, we’d say this tactic is working.
Argentina: Take waxing into your own hands
If you find yourself going too long between waxes because of the hassle (and cost) of professional waxing, do as the Argentines do.
Wax it yourself. Because maintaining a mostly hairless body is a major beauty goal in this South American country, women often use at-home waxing for weekly hair removal.
Iceland: Invest in the best anti-aging products
Picking up whatever eye cream is on sale at the drug store doesn’t cut it for the women in Iceland.
They carefully choose their anti-aging products and aren’t afraid to spend a pretty penny on highly concentrated plant extracts created through advanced technology.
France: A regular trim is better than any styling product
Although many American women seek long, flowing locks, women in France typically prefer a short- or medium-length cut that grazes the shoulders.
They like to wear it styled in a perfectly messy way, and this requires hair to be healthy and shiny so it doesn’t look too disheveled.
So they schedule regular haircuts to keep their tresses in good shape, which helps them achieve their desired look without the necessity of excess styling products.
Korea: Facials are a necessity — not a luxury
You might treat yourself to a facial for a bit of pampering now and then, but women in Korea — where pristine skin is the ultimate beauty goal — view the treatment as a vital part of their skin care regimen.
Reportedly, female residents spend a large portion of their disposable income on getting facials, typically every other week.
