Women will do anything to look good!
All the lasses looking all gorgeous and slaying on these streets of Nairobi have gone a long way to pull that look. And to get that look.
Men complain a lot when it comes to women taking forever while applying make up. But genius and beauty is not rushed.
Beauty is an expensive venture. That is why when Nairobi ladies started using avocado, potatoes (waru), eggs and honey for beauty, men complained.
I bet others never knew some of the more bizzare ingredients that are being used to capture beauty.
Well, here are some of the most weird things women are doing to look beautiful. If you’ve not seen it yet, trust me, you will see them trend very soon.
Baby Burp (Vomit)
You’ve probably seen a baby vomit a white substance that is as a result of the mother’s milk, well lasses now use it to cure acne. They say it is one of the cheapest form of skin therapy. I am shocked as you are, but trust me, I have seen lasses use it, here in Nairobi.
You were probably shocked when you heard that snails are eaten in some countries and I guess the first reaction was ‘Yack, I cannot eat that.’ You can now go to Chinese restaurants in Nairobi and have yourself a delicious meal. The rich call it escargot. But ni snails tuu. But then maybe your female friend in your life is using the nails as one that regenerate damaged tissue leaving her with soft, glowing skin.
Dehydrated bird poop is used to brighten the complexion and reduce the appearance of acne. This treatment was first used by Victoria Beckham, its now available in most spas in town. Sounds disgusting right?
Urine contains water, salts and the rest are nutrients. When applied onto the skin urine acts as a beauty treatment for acne. Morning urine is said to be the best as a facial treatment because the hormones are said to build up overnight. Well, you now know, you don’t have to flash it in the toilet. I mean, you have to go a long way to pull that gorgeous flawless face.
You don’t have to drink coffee no more instead, you can add a cup of coffee to your bath. The caffeine in the coffee is said to help improve circulation while removing excess water from the skin to help it look and feel firmer. Here you age gracefully!
You can go to the spa and take a beer bath in the comfort of a warm tub. But hey, you can make everyday a Friday by adding some beer to your bath. It helps to improve the texture of your skin and give it a healthy-looking glow.
