Organic Skin Science

Two women of different races, one with fair skin and the other with darker skin, standing together.

All women strive to have beautiful, healthy-looking skin and hair. Depending on where they live though, they have different tricks that help them achieve perfect skin and luscious locks. Let’s treasure hunt around the world for the best-kept beauty secrets!

The Best Natural Beauty Secrets From Around The World

1. Costa-Rica: Orange Juice

Did you know that oranges can help reduce the size of pores? Not only this – they are also believed to increase the production of collagen, keeping the skin looking youthful. Some people mix equal parts of water and fresh orange juice and apply it with a cotton ball onto their skin, leave for a few minutes and rinse off. This homemade toner refreshes the skin and makes the pores less noticeable. Aside from applying orange juice topically, including it in your diet is even better, especially when it comes to reversing (or more like delaying) the aging process.

Speaking of pore-reducing toners, have you tried LAMAV Probiotic Toner?


2. Singapore: Coconut Oil

When I was living in Singapore, I noticed that most women there had super shiny hair. Considering that the climate in Singapore is very humid, their hair should have been ultra-frizzy?! And yet – their locks were sleek and shiny. How was that possible?

After I spent a year there, I found out what their secret was - super easy, yet an extremely effective recipe for maintaining their hair healthy. Almost every evening, they were applying a few drops of coconut oil and leaving it on during the night. The result – good morning, gorgeous, frizz-free hair!

Note: Always make sure that the vegetable oils you are buying are 100% organic - this is the ultimate guarantee that all of their wonderful properties are fully preserved!


3. Bulgaria: Rose Water

Rose water is very popular in Bulgaria, not only because there, in the so-called Rose Valley, is the home of Rosa damascene. Bulgarian women discovered the magical powers of Rosewater decades ago and they still swear by it. It helps them keep their skin healthy and always radiant. Rose water is wonderful for soothing irritations, balancing oily skin, restoring moisture balance, preventing eye puffiness and whatnot. True beauty multi-tasker! 

If you want to experience the skin-reviving power of Rosewater, try LAMAV Rose Hydrating Mist


4. Morocco: Argan Oil

Argan oil is probably one of the most popular vegetable oils to date but I can assure you, it’s has been named “liquid gold” for a reason. Argan oil can be used on the skin as a moisturizer because it has outstanding skin-healing and anti-aging properties. During the colder months, I add a few drops of Argan oil to my daily cream – it works like a charm for my dry, dehydrated, flaky skin. Because Argan oil is very lightweight, it penetrates with ease and delivers moisture and nutrients to the dermis, where they are most needed.


5. India: Turmeric

Turmeric is one of India’s most used spices and it’s not just good when added to food, but also great for your skin. There are many ways to use turmeric and you can find tons of great recipes online. Today I’ll share my personal favourite – a simple, 2-ingredients-only, DIY anti-aging scrub with yogurt.

How to: Mix equal parts of turmeric and yogurt, apply to the skin, leave on until it dries and then scrub gently for a minute or two. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

Turmeric is also believed to reduce dark spots and marks left from healed blemishes, which makes it ideal for people struggling with acne and melasma.
