Evolve is made up of wonderful women from all over the world so this International Women's day we are going to let you into our beauty secrets from lands near and far!
“ In Germany less is more! Makeup is usually kept very subtle, the more natural the better! Chamomile is used for everything, from drinking it in your tea to smothering it on your spots to soothe and calm!".
“My mother who grew up in Ireland says that drinking cabbage water will keep your skin clear! Oh and NEVER pick your spots!".
“ In Bulgaria, it is said that drinking cold coffee keeps the wrinkles away!".
“In Venezuela we have the most beautiful women in the world! Our secret is avocado! We use it in our hair to help it to grow, on our skin for a glow and even on our nail cuticles to make them smooth and strong!".
“ I drink hot water with lemon first thing every morning! It is the perfect early morning detox and helps to keep my skin clear! I am a sucker for an all-year-round summer glow and as the sun doesn't like to come out to play very often I'm a big fan of gradual tanner!".
“In France you get young girls set to a skin
care routine from a very young age - I remember my mum showing me to “cleanse / tone / moisturise” from my early teens and eye cream from the age of 18! I am so used to having a thorough skincare routine that I wouldn’t dream of going to bed without cleansing my face - even after a night out!".
“ In Romania, people often use simple kitchen ingredients as beauty treatments. Growing up, my mum showed me how to moisten oat flakes with water and use as a creamy soft exfoliator for the skin. We would also whisk an egg white and mix with honey for an anti bacterial soothing face mask".
“Growing up in the North East of Scotland, skincare was about respecting the environment. The sun can burn even on a cool day and it's important to ALWAYS wear a really nourishing moisturiser. Honey makes an incredible face mask and coconut oil is and always has been the best answer to dry, damaged hair!"
