But don’t be fooled by their seemingly easy-going beauty; women in Spain take special care of their skin. So, here are what you must include in your beauty routine to have fabulous and healthy-looking skin like the gorgeous Penélope Cruz.
Beauty essential #1: Hydrate from within
As we already told you before, drinking plenty of water is essential for healthy, glowing skin and preventing premature wrinkles. But the great secret that distinguishes Spanish girls’ approach to hydrating the body is that they drink warm water as a beauty trick, even during hot summer. You might ask why. Science has shown that drinking warm water every day increases blood flow, rejuvenating skin cells. Additionally, it helps detoxify the body and increases the metabolic rate, aiding digestion and weight loss. In other words, drinking at least one glass of warm water first is an easy-to-follow step you should add to your morning skincare and wellness routine.
Beauty secret #2: Healthy habits
Of course, flawless natural skin doesn’t come without adopting healthy habits in your life. Besides drinking plenty of water, you need physical activity and a healthy, nourishing diet. So, avoid restrictive, crazy diets; instead, follow the Spanish girls’ beauty tricks and give your body the proper nutrients to achieve glowing skin. For example, make sure you eat protein-rich food and a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits such as mango and pomegranate for bright skin. And don’t forget the Spanish girls’ secret weapon, olive oil, a monounsaturated fat good to prepare healthy food and an efficient skincare routine. Spanish women use olive oil to massage skin since it helps unclog pores and gives them their world-famous glowing skin. Additionally, olive oil is an excellent nutrient in homemade face masks that Mediterranean girls and celebrities like Halle Berry and Meghan Markle use.
Beauty routine #3: Never forego your beauty sleep
Although Spain is known for its nightlife, party lovers get ready for La Movida with a beauty sleep. Spanish girls know the importance of getting enough sleep and take this beauty trick very seriously. Did you know that your skin can better absorb the nutrients of beauty treatments while you’re sleeping? Read These are the hours when your cosmetics are most effective to learn more about this.
Beauty basic #4: Spanish girls protect and feed their skin with the best
Spain is the sunniest country in Europe, with an average of 300 days of sun on the coast side. As a result, there are two essential beauty products on the Spaniard’s bathroom shelves. Firstly, a high SPF sunscreen protects the skin from harmful sun rays, and their beauty trick is to wear it daily. And secondly, an excellent deep hydrating biocompatible cream to regenerate the skin, reduce lines, and give them plump and glowing skin.
Beauty less is more #5
Looking at the natural glow of Spanish girls like Penelope Cruz, Eugenia Silva, and Blanca Miró, one can tell they prefer to wear the famous no-makeup makeup. And because their skin is well-cared, they can afford to wear little makeup and still look great. And take into consideration that layers of foundation don’t fit hot weather. So, the focus of their makeup is usually the eyes, and they are pros when it comes to applying eyeliner. The secret lies in the very thin layer of eyeliner they apply, just enough to highlight the eyes.
