Every woman across the globe loves a little selfcare from time to time and since the rise of multicultural communities in many different countries, sharing and adopting beauty tips that suit you, can make all the difference when living abroad. As an alternative to expensive or invasive treatments that may be toxic to our bodies, living in Thailand comes with great natural solutions.
These beauty hacks boast a powerhouse of benefits and will save you time and money leaving you feeling and looking confident and glowing. Thailand inspires a sincere devotion to beauty regimes and can be a lot less demanding and more fun than that of its neighboring countries. With an often holistic approach as well as a focus on fresh foods and skin health, these hacks can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home or a quick bike ride or walk away.
Eat your skin beautiful
It’s no secret that Thailand’s tropical climate makes for the tastiest and juiciest fruit, but most of these fruits boast a wealth of benefits, both internally and externally. Papaya is not only used as the main ingredient in one of Thailand’s healthiest meals, Som Tum but works wonders on tired skin.
Packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E, this fruit is a fantastic antioxidant that brightens and tightens old-looking skin. In addition to papaya, the kiwi fruit boasts a natural alkaline which combats the acidic foods that we eat and helps balance our pH levels. This, in turn, leaves us feeling energetic and promotes youthful, glowing skin.
Lastly and probably one of our favorites is pineapple, which is great for acne treatment. A powerhouse of vitamin C, bromelain, and antioxidants, pineapple aids in the treatment and prevention of acne, is great for soothing sun damaged skin, toning and is used against skin inflammation and swelling.
Mindful and sweaty
Living in Southeast Asia, we have access to a plethora of outdoor recreation as well as the amazing traditions that come with it. Yoga is one of these and offers a great deal of mental and physical benefits and can be done in the comfort of our own home or as part of a group. Adding yoga into our daily routine not only increases strength and promotes weight loss, but enhances our health and reduces stress and anxiety, a great start or end to anyone’s day.
Spice up your life
Living in Thailand, we have access to so many flavors and aromas, most of which do a great deal for our bodies and skin and can be easily added into our diets as well as our beauty regimes. Take turmeric for example. A daily dose of turmeric, natural honey, and lemon in a glass of water is a great detoxifier and aids in flushing out your system and burning excess fat. In addition to this, ladies can blend together turmeric, coconut oil, and honey for a natural face mask that fights off acne as well as brightens and evens out the skin.
Go coco for beautiful hair
Anyone living in Thailand knows the incredible benefits of adding coconut oil to our daily lives. Cocos nucifera, otherwise known as the tree of life, is native to the tropics and boasts a wealth of benefits. The vitamins and essential fatty acids naturally found in coconut oil nourish our scalps and stimulate hair growth by getting deep into the hair follicles. Applying coconut oil onto the roots of your hair once a week promotes healthy glowing hair and prevents split ends and hair breakage.
