Turkey is known throughout the world for its beauty treatments including those for, hair, skin, manicures and pedicures. It’s not likely that you’ll want to be spending too much time in the salons during your holiday however, especially if you only have a short time in what is one of the world’s most intriguing places. So instead, here are a few natural Turkish beauty techniques you can have a go at while you’re on holiday and when you come home. |
A strange one to start with maybe, but vinegar (which is made from the fermentation of various natural ingredients) is actually a great and healthy way of lightening blemishes. Vinegar is used widely in Turkey in beauty treatments for acne, face masks and even just irritated skin. Don’t just go out and buy vinegar straight off the supermarket shelves, however, stick to specific local skincare companies, such as Istanbul’s Homemade Aromatherapy – which offers a wide range of products.
One of the most famous of Turkey’s national product is its range of natural soaps, which are fantastic for the skin and smell wonderful to boot. The list of products used in the manufacture of soap in the country is extensive, including lavender, chamomile, goat’s milk, argan and much more. Thousands of years of tradition can’t be wrong, so put your trust and skin in knowledgeable hands.
One place where you’re certain to find natural Turkish soap is in a Turkish bath, which offers about as thorough a skin treatment as it is possible to get anywhere in the world. It’s a long process, which starts with the softening of the skin through steam and heat before attendants scrub your entire body very vigorously. This is topped off with a good lathering and a massage, leaving your skin soft, clean and wholly renewed. There are few more refreshing and beneficial treatments out there, so why not allocate an afternoon to attending a traditional Turkish bath? Your skin will thank you...
For a less time-consuming (and cheaper) option, another ingredient at the heart of Turkish beauty treatments is lavender. This aromatic plant is used a lot in soaps and shampoos, as well as in the famous lavender water, which can be applied to reinvigorate skin, as well as to help sooth cuts and burns.
