Beauty is something everyone tributes. God has created beauty in everything around us which we have to see and prioritise according to our standards. But when it comes to women, nobody can deny the exquisiteness they have.
Gorgeous Moroccan women are considered some of the finest in the world. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that their beauty comes naturally. There are many “secrets” that have kept Moroccan ladies at the top of their game for ages. Read on as we reveal five of these secrets.
Secret #1: Hammam
The Hammam is an open bathhouse where Moroccan beautiful women traditionally went at least once a week to get a ritual based cleansing treatment. The treatment involves detoxification, aromatherapy and a massage using Argan and essential oils, which are key Moroccan ingredients for nourishing the skin.
Secret #2: Rose oil
Rose oil is considered an essential component behind Moroccan women’s beauty due to its high vibration (the impact of a particular element of human body and soul). It is used in aromatherapy and is also recognised as stress relieving and soothing agent. Rose oil makes your skin glow and smooth. The best about this oil is that it is very effective for sensitive, dry and ageing skin.
Secret #3: Ghassoul clay
Mined deep from the ancient Atlas Mountains in the Northeastern region of Morocco, Rhassoul clay or Ghassoul clay is used as skin conditioner, detoxifying cleanser and body mask. This smooth mineral clay powder is rich in magnesium, potassium, silica and calcium. Traditionally, Moroccan women mixed Ghassoul with rose water to make a paste that they used to purify virtues and liberate toxins.
Secret #4: Argan Oil
Argan oil is the rarest oil harvested from Argan tree, which is endemic to the beautiful semi-desert Sous valley in the Southwestern part of Morocco. Argan is used by Moroccan women for centuries to enrich the beauty of their skin. It is also known as the ‘Gold of Morocco’ due to its dark amber colour. Argan oil is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants and plant sterols. It stimulates intracellular oxygenation which helps increase immunity against diseases and skin infections. The oil is also used to diminish acne scars and stretch marks caused by obesity or pregnancy.
Secret #6: African black soap
Yes, it’s black, yet it has qualities to enhance your beauty to the maximum whether you are white, tan or black. This black soap is widely used in hammams across Morocco. It usually contains crushed Moroccan olives, a mixture of oils, salt, and potash. ‘Savon Beldi’ is usually the term used in Morocco to refer to African black soap. Black soap is medicinal, detoxifying, antimicrobial and sensibly aromatic and very rich in vitamin-E. It helps reduce premature signs of ageing, deep cleans the skin, and usually used as a softener when exfoliating the skin.
