Brazil is practically synonymous with beauty because it is home to some of the most beautiful women and the sexiest beauty treatments in the world.
Want to look like a Brazilian bombshell? Read on because today I’m sharing nine Brazilian beauty secrets that will make you look so hot, you will forget it’s almost sweater season!
1. Coconut Water
Most Brazilian women drink at least one glass of coconut water a day. Not only is coconut water extremely hydrating, but it contains a growth factor called cytokinins that encourages the growth of new, young skin cells.
Coconut Water is also high in Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects your skin from sun damage and encourages the growth of collagen to keep your skin firm and supple.
2. Acai Berries
Brazilians have been eating acai berries for centuries because they are one of the most potent sources of antioxidants on earth. In fact, an acai berry has ten times the antioxidant content of a grape. The antioxidants in acai berries keep your skin young and prevent premature signs of aging.
In my opinion, the most delicious way to give your skin an antioxidant boost is with an acai bowl. Find out how to make an acai bowl here!
3. Acerola Cherries
Acerola cherries are another fruit native to Brazil and they contain more Vitamin C than any other food on the planet! One serving of acerola cherries offers thirteen times more Vitamin C than orange juice. Fresh Acerola cherries spoil very quickly so it is easier to find them in juice, extract, or powdered form.
You can use acerola powder to make a potent Vitamin C masque by combining one teaspoon acerola cherry powder, one teaspoon of honey and one tablespoon of filtered water. Mix the ingredients well and apply to your face, neck, and decolletage. Leave the masque on for twenty minutes or until dry and remove with a warm and damp washcloth.
4. Carrot Juice
Brazilian women drink carrot juice to enhance their suntan because the beta-carotene in carrot juice gives the skin a healthy glow and offers natural sun protection.
5. Cupuacu Butter
Cupuacu butter is native to Brazil and is a popular ingredient in skin care products. Cupuacu butter is similar in texture to shea butter and is chock full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids to hydrate and repair dry, damaged skin.
6. Babassu Oil
Babassu oil is one of Brazil’s most prized beauty ingredients. Similar to coconut oil, babassu oil is a soft, semi-solid butter that melts on contact with the skin, creating a cooling sensation that feels amazing.
Used on its own, babassu oil makes a wonderful moisturizer for your skin and hair. You can use babassu oil as a pre-shampoo hair treatment or melt it in the microwave and then add it to your usual hair conditioner.
7. Lymphatic Massage
Most Brazilian women get a lymphatic massage every week, which is a special type of lymph node massage that removes toxins, reduces puffiness, decreases water retention, and even tones the muscles.
8. Wet Sand
Brazilian women use wet beach sand to exfoliate their skin and to improve the appearance of cellulite. If you want to try this fun and easy scrub on your next tropical vacation, be sure to only use wet sand because dry sand would be too harsh, and don’t use sand to exfoliate the skin on your face.
9. Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
The infamous Brazilian booty is the product of a ton of squats and the backside smoothing power of the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. The Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is a tempting blend of cupuacu butter, acai berry, coconut oil, and guaraná, one of the richest sources of caffeine, containing five times more caffeine than coffee.
Caffeine is one of the most effective ingredients for improving the appearance of cellulite because caffeine is a diuretic which removes excess moisture from the skin, creating a firming effect.
