Some of the techniques that are used right here in the United States are derived from Latin America women who have been using these techniques for years. I’m going to do my best to share all the techniques that are out there and readily used in Latin America.
Skin Care Techniques Derived From Latin America
Here’s a rundown of a few skin care tips and techniques that come from Latin America. My advice would be to start doing whatever you can fit into your daily regimen. I’ll cover various techniques and the countries that each technique is associated with. Let’s start with Mexico…
In the great country of Mexico, you’ll find that the country is abundant in agave. This is a plant that’s used to make tequila. In addition to that, back in the day, the Aztecs would use the plant to help heal burns from sun exposure. They would also use it to moisturize their hair. Today, it’s frequently used to fix under eye issues such as circles and such. Many people also mix agave with egg to make a cocktail for their hair. Sure, it might smell potent but it’ll make your hair look fantastic.
The next country on the list is Costa Rica. Women living throughout parts of the country use orange juice combined with water to improve their skin. They apply this to their face in order to help reduce the size of their pores. I must want you, if you’re allergic to oranges, then you’ll want to refrain from doing this. Should you choose to do so, keep it on for a few minutes, rinse with cold water and you’re good to go.
The people of Brazil like to incorporate oatmeal into their skin regimen. It’s common for oatmeal to be used as a soaking agent in a hot bath to help relieve the pain caused by a sunburn.
