With Brazilian models and celebrities like Gisele Bündchen, Adriana Lima, and Alessandra Ambrosio taking center stage across the globe right now, it’s no wonder that everyone is dying to try their beauty routines. American celebrities such as Blake Lively, Lauren Conrad, and Katie Holmes make use of Brazilian beauty tricks all the time, and since Brazil is known for its beauty innovations, you’ve probably tried a few Brazilian techniques without ever realizing it!
Ever use coconut oil for a moisturizer? Brazilian women were the first to discover and popularize that routine. Or maybe you’ve heard of using snail mucin (yes, it’s exactly what you think, and yes, plenty of anecdotal evidence supports it!) to prevent signs of aging skin, which was popularized by Korean skincare routines. Not to throw shade at Korean beauty experts, but Brazil was using snail mucin well before the trend made its way to Asia.
True to form, Brazilian skincare is only getting more and more sophisticated, even as certain staples stay true (good nutrition and staying hydrated are key). All of the natural ingredients found right in the Amazon Rainforest that Brazilian women have been using for decades are now backed by clinical studies and renowned dermatologists. In an age when celebrities are obsessed with natural beauty remedies (we’re looking at you Gwyneth Paltrow) and their fans are following suit, it’s a relief to hear that there are natural remedies available that are also supported by scientific evidence and formulated with correct dosages to actually work!
If you’ve ever wondered why so many of the world’s most iconic supermodels are Brazilian, now you know it’s due in part to their amazing, natural skincare! American celebrities have taken notice and haven’t hesitated to take advantage of these little-known regimens. There’s no reason you can’t do the same!
