Beauty tips from around the world: Sweden
I'm always reading articles about beauty tips from around the world but never try them. Now I have decided to try them. Why not? Having spent a lot of time in Sweden I can tell you they have the most beautiful men AND women. Seriously- they all look like they just stepped out of a catalog. I have found a few things they supposedly do. Some of these I know for a fact that many of them do- other parts of it could be myth.
1. Drink a ton of water every day.
2. Splash their face in ice cold water in the morning and night.
3. Hit the steam room or sauna on a regular basis.
All of these things sound simple enough so for the next two weeks I'm going to try to drink 100 ounces of water a day, splash my face in ice cold water in the morning and at night, and go to the steam room or sauna at least twice a week. Luckily I have a steam room and sauna about a 3 minute walk from our place- and they are open till 10 every night so I have no excuse not to go! Hopefully I will have something good to report back!
**And yes, I do realize I wont turn into a blonde Swedish beauty like Malin Akerman or Elin Nordegren just by doing this, after all I am half Italian :)**
