|Written by Sam Hari|
For centuries, we have heard tales of some of the most beautiful women in the world hailing from the Far East. From Arabian princesses to the beautiful women in Indochina and the Mughal empires, stories of unsurpassed beauty have been handed down through the ages. Countless wars have been waged and eligible bachelors travelled to the ends of the earth to gaze upon beauty so divine.
What qualities drove normally sane men to madly seek out these beauties? What did these legendary women have in common? These secrets I shall reveal: shiny, lustrous hair; perfect skin; eyes incomparable in their beauty.
And how can you, too, posses the qualities that purportedly launched a thousand ships?
Secrets of Beautiful Hair
Achieving and maintaining silky, lustrous hair has long been a well kept secret. The key to beautiful hair is keeping it nourished and moisturized. But how do we accomplish this?
Secrets of Sumptuous Skin
There are a few key secrets to truly sumptuous skin:
Secrets of Erotic Eyes
Eyes have long been an indicator of beauty. Today, many women use items like eyeliners and mascara to bring out the beauty in their eyes. The princesses I have spoken of didn’t have access to this makeup, yet men could not express in words the beauty they saw in their eyes. Kajal or Kohl from the Far East is the answer. Used around the eyes as eyeliner, this beauty secret has been used for centuries. There are several recipes for this, but one of the most popular recipes involves burning camphor in a metal vessel until all that is left is soot. Collect this soot and mix in a few drops of ghee, then apply around the eyes. In addition to bringing out the eyes, Kajal offers a multitude of other benefits and has been used in Ayurveda for millennia.
Of course, true beauty doesn’t lie within our hair, skin or eyes. It resides within us. Living a happy, stress-free life and having a loving, carefree attitude is not just a secret form the Far East. It’s one of the great secrets of the universe. Remembering this secret will always let your true beauty shine through.
