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 :)**


  1. I would love to look like a Swedish Beauty everyday! Thanks for the tips!

  2. Okay, this reminded me of a story, so I had to comment. A few years ago, my cousins went to Denmark for a study abroad program and took a vacation to Sweden. They called my uncle to let him know they'd arrived safe and sound and he asked what they were going to see first.

    "Dad," one of the brothers said, "I think we're just going to sit at a cafe and watch the girls walk past. Every woman here is tall, blonde, and beautiful. That's all the sightseeing I could possibly ask for."

    True to form, they came home from their travels with about two rolls of film from Denmark and fifty from Sweden LOL.

  3. Ha this made me laugh. Everyone thinks that its a myth that most swedes are tall and beautiful..its quite true. I didn't notice it as a child growing up there- but going back there as an adult definitely made me more aware of how perfect everyone looked- even going to the grocery store on a Sunday morning.

    if like to read it after that my friends will too.
