Same Tricks, New Skin

Old beauty tricks to keep in your routine

As a new season approaches, we’re taking stock of our beauty dos and donts; making a list of what works and what doesn’t. Here are some of the tried and true ingredients and treatments that made the cut:
Go for the Gold
Gold has been used for beauty treatments by the Romans, Egyptians and Japanese for centuries. It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to restore skin’s firmness. It has been said that Cleopatra used a gold mask every night to maintain her complexion and give her glowing, radiant skin. Each evening, apply a serum infused with gold ferment to your skin, such as JAFRA’s Gold Dynamics Ultra Nourishing Gold Gel, to help regenerate dormant skin cells and refine your skin’s texture. Consider treating your skin to one of these luxuriously beneficial treatments this year.
Take a Dip in the Mud
Another ancient beauty treatment that has made it through the ages is the use of Dead Sea Mud. Another favorite of Cleopatra and Queen Sheba, Dead Sea mud has a high concentration of minerals (more than any in the world) as well as anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. It’s great at removing dirt and toxins from the skin. Try a full body mud mask treatment, like JAFRA’s Mud Mask, which contains Dead Sea mineral mud and antioxidants to clean deep and remove impurities.
Find Your Oil
Though beauty oils have become popular again in the last few years, they’ve been used throughout history. The ancient Greeks used olive oil to moisturize their skin and hair; just as we do today. Not only does olive oil provide penetrating moisture, it also contains strong antioxidants that can help the skin renew itself after damage from environmental stressors. Similarly, almond oil has been used since pre-Biblical times to keep skin soft and supple. Pamper your skin this year with body treatments infused with these tried and true oils, such as JAFRA’s Royal Olive Body Oil and Lotion or JAFRA’s Royal Almond Rich Body Oil.
Live Like a Queen (Bee)
Royal Jelly is a substance produced by worker bees to feed to the queen bee in a hive. It is why she is larger and stronger than the rest of the bees. Royal Jelly contains complex B vitamins, minerals and enzymes and has antibiotic and antibacterial properties that make it helpful in scar treatment. It was used for health and beauty by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians (Cleopatra was a beauty boss!) and by rulers in Asia. This year, take your beauty to the next level by incorporating this miracle ingredient into your skin care regimen. Try JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Ritual products, which contain their exclusive RoyalActive Peptide. The Royal Jelly Global Longevity Balm is a great test run for falling in love with this natural wonder.
