Brazilian women are known to be some of the most beautiful women in the world. Luckily for us, many of their secrets are attainable.
Here are five beauty secrets Brazilian women swear by that you can easily recreate at home, order online, or find at your local drugstore or Sephora.
There’s No Such Thing As Too Much Moisturizer
We all know to moisturize our faces every day, but sometimes we forget that it’s just as important to moisturize our bodies. Camila Pierotti of Brazilian beauty brand Sol de Janeiro says, "Caring for the body is as important as caring for the face. [Brazilian women] moisturize with only the best ingredients and show off their touch-me skin."
Finger-Comb Hair To Maintain Natural Waves
We all know that Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen has enviable hair, and one of her hair secrets is surprisingly simple: She doesn’t brush her hair to help maintain her natural waves. She writes, "After I apply conditioner, I pass my fingers through my hair and let it dry naturally. Every once in a while, I comb my hair in the shower, but I don't comb or brush after that."
Drink Coconut Water
Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima is famous for her beautiful skin, and her best-kept secret can be found at the grocery store. Lima swears by drinking coconut water and applying it to her body with cotton pads. If that’s a little much for you, you can invest in products with coconut water like the Kopari Beauty Coconut Water Moisture Face Cream or the Too Faced Hangover Good to Go Skin Protecting SPF 25 Moisturizer.
Use Products with Almond Oil
Adriana Lima also swears by products with almond oil. Luckily for us, there are many different kinds of products that have almond oil in them. The Bumble and bumble Bb.Hairdresser's Invisible Oil for your hair, the Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion for your body, and the Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask for your face. If you want a body oil made of almond oil, check out the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil or the Baja Zen Coco Glow Body Oil.
DIY Eye Masks
We’ve all tried DIY face masks before, but what about a DIY eye mask? Brazilian model Victoria Brito’s secret weapon is using potato slices as an eye mask. She writes, "To get rid of dark circles, take a potato, cut it into slices like a pepperoni, and put one slice over each eye for about 15 to 20 minutes once a week. I swear, after doing it about five times, you'll start to see a drastic reduction of dark circles. The potato literally starts to get dark and shrivel up while you use it—it's crazy!"
Brazilian women are known to be some of the most beautiful women in the world, but much of their beauty is natural, and their secrets are accessible. It’s easy to embrace our natural beauty like Brazilian women do, so why not try it out?
