"Vintage" Beauty: Classical Methods That Do Wonders For Women
In this world, every little thing has a history from which we can learn something. Some things that seem old-fashioned, simple, or even comical, may in fact have surprisingly beneficial effects on our body and mind.
There have been women throughout the ages who have impressed us with the way they have maintained themselves and have come to impose a certain type of beauty.
Beauty symbols such as Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly remind us of their smooth, glowing skin and always beautifully styled hair coupled with a captivating smile.
We'll go through some classical beauty methods that can easily be used at home.
Classical Beauty Methods For Women
1. Salt Exfoliation
These beauties used to use salt baths as a natural exfoliant. Now we can use scented bath salt with a sea salt base. That way the result won't have an unpleasant smell.
2. Fruit Masks
In the 1960s women used strawberries and their juice as a facial lotion. This recipe can now be used by adding a mixture of bananas and honey to the fruit. Apply it to the face as an antioxidant cream.
3. Ice For Your Face
Joan Crawford explains how to apply ice to your face 25 times each morning to achieve smooth, soft, glowing skin. Kate Moss now applies this method almost frequently.
By performing this technique after a sleepless night, along with water and cucumber, you can achieve supermodel skin.
4. Olive Oil For Your Hair
Rita Hayworth applies this olive oil to washed and towel-dried hair. Oiled hair is wrapped in a towel for 20 minutes. Then it is rinsed with lukewarm water and lemon juice.
This recipe is a foolproof beauty trick, but now there are all sorts of hair creams available without having to blow-dry the hair after application.
5. White Eyeliner
Marlyn Monroe applied a white liner (white pencil) to the lower lid of the eye to give depth to the eyes. Today there is a plethora of pastel colors with white undertones to give the eyes a classic and delicate "touch".
6. Double Blush
Before there was contouring, beauties like Grace Kelly used two colors to make their cheeks stand out: a brighter color in the bone area and a darker one in the same area. This combination required a lot of attention to achieve the desired result. Practice made perfect.
Many ancient beauty tricks and habits, which have great results, are still being kept.
From ancient times to the present, women have always wanted to maintain and preserve their beauty. I will mention some recipes of some well-known beauties.
Beauty Recipes Used By Famous Women
Cleopatra (69-30 BC) used cow's milk as a mask in addition to buffalo milk.
The beautiful empress Sissy (1837-1898) had a weakness for the scent of lavender, which helped her both physically and mentally with her court duties. The scent of lavender has a relaxing action and gives comfort to the body.
Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), a favorite of Louis XV, washed her face and décolleté with rose water mixed with fruit juice.
Famous Ancient Wrinkle Cream - The Recipe
Now we reveal the secret of 17th-century beauty: the wrinkle cream of the beautiful Anne "Ninon" de l'Enclos (1620-1705). People interested in this cream can use the famous recipe:
- 4 teaspoons of sweet almond oil
- 3 teaspoons of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of beeswax
- 1 tablespoon of onion juice
- 1 tablespoon of rose water
Mix everything without the rosewater, and place the mixture over low heat, stirring until the wax melts. Remove it from the fire, add rose water and place it in a glass jar. When it is cooled, cover the dish.
Apply every night at bedtime and wipe off in the morning with a pad dipped in Witch Hazel Water.
We hope this recipe restores your skin to be as youthful and velvety as that of Anne "Ninon" de l'Enclos.
