9 Unusual Beauty Treatments From Around the World

June, 2017

As we travel across the world we come across various unusual beauty treatment ideas.They may seem farfetched, but some really do work

Treatment #1: Carrot Juice for Tanning

Some women in Brazil claim that sipping on carrot juice gives them a healthy, natural-looking tan. And this isn't entirely farfetched either. Since carrots are full of beta-carotene, eating a lot of them can in fact make your skin appear slightly orange.

Treatment #2: Emu Oil as a Conditioner

Derived from the indigenous birds of Australia, it's used for skin and hair treatments. It's also touted for its healing properties — many claim it can help reduce the appearance of psoriasis, eczema, and acne, and that it can heal and soothe burns.

Treatment #3: Nettles for Thicker Hair

If you suffer from thinning hair or hair loss, some believe that ingesting nettle supplements and soaking hair in nettle tea can help. (Yep, nettles as in those stinging plants.) And in Croatia, women wash their hair with boiled nettles to heal an itchy scalp.

Treatment #4: Milk for Soft Skin

Allegedly, Cleopatra and Elizabeth I both took warm milk baths to perfect their complexions. And we can see why: Milk is full of lactic acid, which can dissolve the protein that holds dead skin cells together.

Treatment #5: Rice Powder as an Exfoliator

Japanese geishas have used rice powder for hundreds of years to clear up blemishes, reduce wrinkles, and even smooth pigmentation. In fact, it's pretty popular across Asia, and many beauty products on the market use it as a main ingredient.

Treatment #6: Spices for Softer Skin

In India and Pakistan, a common bridal traditional is to make a face and body mask of turmeric, sandalwood, gram flour, rose water, and milk. They claim it clears up and brighten the bride's skin before the big day.

Treatment #7: Beer for Shinier Hair

In Germany, beer isn't just a drink you enjoy during Oktoberfest. In fact, some women mix it with water and spritz it onto dry hair to boost shine.

Treatment #8: Pearl Powder for Hydrated Skin

Women in the ancient Ming Dynasty would apply it onto their skin for a smoother, moisturized complexion. Well, it looks like they were on to something. One recent study found that pearl powder does in fact hydrate skin and minimize imperfections.

Treatment #9: Garlic Extract for Stronger Nails

Dominican women often add garlic to their top coats for strong nails. (Don't worry — the smell goes away after the top coat dries.) It also helps keep nails clean because garlic is antibacterial.
