Since Sweden is trending in the news, I thought it would be interesting to read legit information about this small country, in the form of Swedish skin care secrets, today, on President’s Day.
And it just so happens, one of my favorite beauty sites, Byrdie, featured an article, last year, about the skincare habits of Swedish woman.
Here are 4 things we can learn from Swedish women, according to the aforementioned Byrdie article, and incorporate into our own beauty regimens.
Here’s a recipe for making a turmeric mask (listed on Byrdie)
2. They eat Nordic berries. One of the best antioxidant foods is berries. In Sweden, the sun shines for 24 hours during the country’s summer, which feeds its berries with lots of beneficial UV. This extra UV feast means that their vitamin and antioxidant content is 81% richer than berries elsewhere. These rich berries help to plump the skin and provide anti- inflammatory effects.
3. They make time for the sauna. Always a wonderful self-caring destination, saunas are ideal for allowing women to unwind, relax and sweat. Sweating, of course, releases toxins and invigorates the skin.
4. They eat well. Fish and vegetables make up a lot of their meals, which shows up on their skin. These healthy foods provide a good amount of fatty acids and vitamins for skin that is plump and hydrated.
