Thailand

Located in Southeast Asia, Thailand is one of my dream go to destinations. The culture is what intrigues me because it is so beautiful and rich, I always think of all the gold they wear. Thailand means the land of free or smiles because they are known for their smiles and they greet people being endearing and loving.  I definitely wouldn’t mind feeling loved! 🙂

Over 90% of Thailand practice Buddhism, they believe that every individual has several lives each depicted by their previous past lives. You could say Karma. I respect how they believe in compassion, selfishness and love. There purpose is to eliminate all desire which is known as Nirvana meaning that you are completely one with his or her surroundings.

The traditional costume that Thai people wear is normally a rich silk fabric that is properly tailored. The always look so neat and put together, not only do they look gorgeous but the food looks just as gorgeous as how the people look!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So I found two regimes that Thai people use to get that healthy glowing skin. I would like to stress that I love natural products and I find they work really well. Most products out there are full of chemicals, which I’m not going to lie, scare me.

Anyways, the first one that I’m going mention is Lemon grass. This is a great way to open your pores and get rid of any oil and dirt on your face. Grab a pot and boil the lemon grass in water, after this has been boiled place a towel over your head. The towel will hang over the head making sure the steam does not escape. It’s like sauna for your face.

The second is very simple, all you do is cut a papaya and scrub your face with the cut fruit. This will nourish the skin making it look healthy and brighter.

So there ya go! Enjoy some Thailand beauty secrets.

Japan

It is so beautiful when Japanese women dress up in their traditional clothing, the makeup looks so soft and angelic, and their kimonos are so colorful full of beautiful flower designs. Did you know that there are two types of Kimonos? Tomesode is worn by married woman and Furisode is worn by unmarried women. Tomesode do not have designs above the waistline and Furisode have extremely long sleeves. Geisha girls also come in my mind when thinking about Japan from watching the movie “Geisha” (great movie by the way). They are known for being graceful and beautiful performers.

I remember watching The Oprah Winfrey show one day and a woman from Japan was a guest. She was talking about what beauty regimes are often used in Japan. I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed but native Japanese woman have the smoothest skin. Do you want to know how to get flawless skin used by Japanese women?

Nightingale Droppings, yes it is poop but the acting agents such as nitrogen-rich urea and guanine is what helps with keeping moisture in your skin and making the face look brighter. They sterilize the poop by using UV light. Nightingale Droppings normally come in a powder form, by adding water it will turn to paste so it can easily be spread on the face. Guanine in Nightingale Droppings is what causes the natural bleaching action. Spread this on the face for a few minutes and wash it off, as simple as that.

I would have never thought that Nightingale poop would be such an amazing beauty tip for getting flawless skin.

Sincerely,

Elma!


Extend what?

Eyelash extensions have become the new trend, getting incredibly popular now. They originated in Japan in the 1990s by the 2000s celebrities were wearing them and salons were selling them. Now eyelash extensions are worn by many women from celebrities to the average everyday woman.

They are not fake eyelashes its hair extensions for your eyelashes. Basically, they individually apply each lash to your existing lash with surgical grade super glue. The eyelash extensions come in a variety of sizes, thickness and colors even blue! The glue is waterproof so you can wash your face, shower and even go swimming. The eyelashes normally last anywhere from 2- 12 weeks, this is based on your hair growth cycle. It is recommended to get your lashes retouched every 2-3 weeks to keep it looking full because it can start looking patchy. Only if they could last forever, sigh…..

Eyebrow extension is similar to eyelash extension because just like the eyelash extension the hair is applied to the existing hair. Unfortunately the eyebrow extension only lasts about 14 days and costs anywhere from $300-$400 so it’s up to you if you think it’s worth it.

Eyelash and Eyebrow extensions should be applied by a trained technician since the glue that is used has the same ingredient that doctors use to close wounds. So make sure you are careful and in the hands of someone skilled.

However, they do have eyelash and eyebrow extension kits. I wouldn’t trust myself with glue that strong. I would stick to a trained professional.
