Moroccan beauty essentials that you should definitely opt for

Written by FDM

Moroccan beauty has gained big notoriety over the past years. But if  Argan oil is the only thing you know about it, you’d only be looking at the upper side of the iceberg. 

In fact Moroccan women have had a whole history with their beauty arsenals. Where they’ve hidden many more tricks, still unknown to the rest of the world. Well, we are here to reveal few of the essential secrets:

#1. Hammam

The Hammam, a public steam room where natives go at least once a week to undergo a ritual-based cleansing treatment. The treatment involves aromatherapy, detoxification, and massage using key Moroccan ingredients like Argan and essential oils. The Hammam is said to increase circulation, release toxins, and purify the skin.

#2. Black African soap

Since we’ve talked about Hammam it goes without mentioning shower essentials such as soap shampoo etc… However, again, Moroccan women use their own exclusive products for the shower. Black soap for example is a must, it is popular throughout many parts of Africa as well as Morocco. The all-natural soap is packed with vitamin E (amazing for your complexion) and has antimicrobial properties. Also, it smells amazing!

#3 Rhassoul clay

Moroccan Rhassoul clay, also known as ghassoul clay, It can be used as a detoxifying cleanser, skin conditioner or body mask, and surpasses other clays because it contains the highest content of silica, magnesium, potassium and calcium.

#4. Rose water/oil

Moroccan women use fresh rose petals to create a number of beauty products including rose water for toning. Rose oil, or Moroccan Rose, is considered one of the strongest essential oils for soothing and relieving ailments. When applied to the skin, it leaves you soft and glowy.

#5 Solid Perfume

Moroccan solid perfume is like nothing you’ve seen before. They come in small, colored blocks that give a light smell when rubbed on the skin that lasts all day. They are highly fragrant and last for years, so no more constant restocking on bottles that break.
