There is a saying that beauty is in the eyes of a beholder, but many people will say that slavic girls are one of the most beautiful ones! The biggest secret behind their beautiful complexion, hair, make up, and appearance in general lays in using mostly natural, organic ingredients! Read below ancient slavic beauty secrets – revealed!
When thinking of slavic girls, the first synonym would probably be long shiny hair! One of the most common slavic tips for hair growth is nettle: shampoo, tincture, or simply washing out hair with nettle tea! For shiny hair, slavic girls often use a mask made out of eggs and olive oil, and some of them even use vinegar for that extra shine! In the summer time, for natural highlights, you can try to put some lemon juice on your hair for lightning effect (but be careful not to put it on your scalp!).
For rosy, blush look some Ukrainian women like to slap their faces to stimulate blood circulation, but massaging it will also do the trick. There are various masks based on honey, oats, egg yolk and milk which are giving the skin proper moisturizing and radiant effect. Cucumber, or lavender hydrolate are often used for cleansing, and for soothing one of the best tips is chamomile! If you have a pimple emergency, the best ways to deal with them is to rub garlic on it and leave over night! Garlic has antibiotic purposes so it will remove redness, scaring and it will shrink the pimple. Also, if you have issues with garlic, you can try toothpaste – dab a dot on a pimple and leave it overnight!
For chapped, dry lips, you can try polish trick: mix sugar, lemon juice and honey to exfoliate your lips! Thanks to olive oil, they will be as soft as an apple in a kompot! Also, for quick exfoliation, you can always rub them with toothbrush! And yes, not to forget constantly smacking them with chapstick!
As always, hydration is the key to having clean, beautiful and soft skin. Russian ladies often go to banja, their version of sauna, but warm shower will also do the trick! For the body peeling you can try mix coffee or oats with olive oil to give you skin silky finish!

If you like to wear nail polish, or go to manicures often, the best way to restart your nails, according to slavic girls, is to soak them in olive oil (yeah, we like to put olive oil in all aspects of our lives). It will boost their recovery! If you are a smoker, and your nails and fingers tend to become very yellow, rub them with lemon, or combo of baking soda and lemon to get rid of the tobacco yellowness! Hope you find this tricks helpful, but the biggest secret of all is to eat healthy and drink a lot of water daily, to keep your body hydrated and vitamin-fueled!
