When I am doing my meditation, I love closing my eyes and imagining that I am under tropical trees and beaches in Jamaica… But there something more about Jamaican women. This tropical island is well known for its tropical and crystal clear beaches, the smell of tropical fruits and coconuts, salty beach water, sexy music and Jamaican cocktails. What you may not know about the island of Jamaica is that is the land of the best natural skin care secrets. Because, they are using what they have around them.
Keep scrolling for a closer look the best-kept natural skin care secrets of Jamaican women.
Egg face mask
Why egg face mask? Because, Jamaican loves it because they smooth out and firm their facial skin.
2 small-sized bowls
1 fork (or a tool for whisking)
1 brush for face mask applications (or use your fingers but for me is a little grossing and not under my hygiene rules)
1 tablespoon of organic virgin Olive oil
First, Jamaican women are separating the yolk from the white in two separate bowls. They are taking the bowl with the egg white and they whisk it very well until they have a frothy mixture; Second, they are cleaning their face and they dampen it with warm water. They are applying the egg white on the face with circular massage moves (if you want, apply it with a brush). Until the mixture will be dried (15 minutes) they are beating the yolk with the olive oil. After 15 minutes they are taking off the egg white with warm damp cloth and they are applying the egg yolk with olive oil (with circular massage moves) for another 15 minutes. After all those minutes they are cleaning their face with cold water.
Hemp Seed Oil
If you wondering what this oil is then here we are. This oil is from the Cannabis sativa plant but most people referred to as cannabis or marijuana. But do not worry, the Hemp Seed Oil is 100% legal. Those little seeds are not only rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3, but also in insoluble fiber. Adiitionally it is fully packed with Vitamin E, antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, calcium and microelements like strontium, thorium, arsenic, and chromium. For all those goods took also the title “Nature’s most perfectly balanced oil”.
It treats acne, dermatitis, other skin inflammatory conditions, it moisturizes very well the skin which means it decreases skin dryness, irritation, improves water resistance and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
As a drink…
I already like Jamaican women! They love using Aloe Vera in all of its forms. By drinking Aloe Vera Juice they prevent breakouts and reduce dead skin cells. Do you know where the best part is? They are making their own DIY Aloe Juice in their kitchen. They are cutting an Aloe leaf in two and are taking two tablespoons of the gel and add them in a blender along with 1 cup of freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice. Their skin is more healthy, smoother and clear.
As an oil…
They love applying on their skin before and after sun (and salty beach water) exposure aloe vera oil in order to protect their skin.
Jamaican girls are applying to their skin before and after a shower, coconut oil! The skin is fully moisturized and is incredibly smooth.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Probably you’ve heard about Castor Oil, but what about the Jamaican Castor Oil? They are using a different method of extraction, a more traditional way if you are wondering the differences between those oils. After the Castor Seeds are roasted, they are pulverized in a mortar and boiled on a wood fire very slow. At the end, we have a thick pungent, and dark brown castor oil with different PH levels than the normal Castor Oil.
The final result treats skin inflammations (ex. acne), ringworms (antifungal and antibacterial properties), treats chapped lips, heal scars, reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
I have never wondered what are the skin benefits of this exotic fruit, do you?? Papaya helps to diminish UV damage and makes the skin smooth! This fruit is fully packed with antioxidants, papain, alpha-hydroxy acids (high in anti-aging properties), high in hydration properties, removing dead skin cells and help it to glow.
I quite like the way they are using Papaya! Jamaican are peeling off papaya and are making a gentle face massage with the inside side of the Papaya’s skin (they are washing it after 15 minutes) and they eat the fruit in order to take all the benefits.
Okay, I have to say that I don’t like the taste of milk coming from animals. But many of you like it and I had to share with you my findings. The women from this exotic island are drinking goat’s milk in order to make their skin tighter and rejuvenate it. This milk contains Vitamin A which keeps the skin healthy. Thank God, for people like me (who don’t drink it) they also apply it directly on their skin for extra moisturization.
