Greece, the land of Aphrodite the goddess of beauty, and Helen of Troy who launched a thousand ships, has a legacy of beauty. Greece is considered the birthplace of the arts and the home of classic beauty. The beauty of the Greek women has always been considered a gift from the gods, which meant health, physical and
mental strength, luck and outer beauty.
Greek women are known all over the world for the beauty that they hold. They believe in practicing the age old beauty remedies so that their skin can glow with radiance. It’s always fascinating to learn about the ways that people of the past used to enhance their
beauty. They had no chemical loaded serums during those time and they could only use the natural resources that they had in hand. Now lets take a look at how Greek women kept themselves looking good since ancient time!
It is said that the olive trees first grew in Ancient Greece. An olive tree is believed to be a sacred tree because it is said that The Goddess ‘Athena’ had gifted an olive tree to the Athenians which grew next to the Acropolis, presumably in honor of the city state’s devotion to her. Olive oil has been a huge part of life in Greece since ancient time.
Olive tree symbolizes wealth, health, beauty, wisdom and abundance during ancient time in Greece. Homer refers to olive oil as ‘liquid gold". Ancient Greek women were the first to use olive oil as a moisturizer. Olive oil helps to revitalize dry skin and contributes to the cell renewal process.
Regular application of olive oil on the skin will not only reduce wrinkles but also moisturizes the skin and removes dead skin cells. Unlike commercial moisturizers that can clog pores and exacerbate current skin conditions, olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin and provides a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep skin
smooth and supple. Try using organic olive oil at night as a substitute for your chemical-loaded regular moisturizer.
2. Greek yogurt
Greek yogurt is heavily strained to remove liquid whey and lactose, leaving behind a tangy, creamy product. Greek yogurt has double the protein, half the carbs and half the sodium of the regular variety yogurt.
Chock full of protein, calcium, vitamin D, and probiotics, there’s no doubt Greek yogurt provides delicious benefits for your insides, but
its skincare benefits are pretty impressive too. It contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow and
prevent breakouts, but works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Rose bath
Rose petals sprinkled in a bath are the image of luxury and self love. Taking rose bath at least once a week can help to even out skin tone and also tighten pores. The antioxidant properties of
rose water help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues. It also helps aging skin, keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
4. Clay to draw out toxins
The ancient Greeks knew all about the benefits of clay masks, long before modern cosmetics companies caught on to the idea. Clay is a versatile natural substance that does wonders for skin. When combined with water and left to dry on the skin as a clay mask, the
clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores to extract these out from your body.
