Italy, an unfinished journey

Summer is coming back, finally

Where are you going to go? Are you planning to visit Italy next summer?

Some of the most beautiful people in the world come from Italy. It is for this reason that people often stereotypically think of the Italians as attractive people. While some people’s good looks are entirely down to their genes, there is an Italian ethos about beauty that has contributed to the view that the Italians are good looking people.

While some people’s good looks are entirely down to their genes, there is an Italian ethos about beauty that has contributed to the view that the Italians are good looking people.

Start Early

The Italians have an ethos of taking care of their looks from an early age in a proactive rather than reactive way. Instead of waiting for the pounds to pile on and the wrinkles to appear, they will take measures for this not to happen by eating a balanced diet and using skincare products.

Get Beauty Inspirations

Italian women take their inspiration from famous Italians who are considered some of the most beautiful women in the world. Two examples include Sophia Loren (pictured) and Gina Lollobrigida. Both women have a timeless and elegant beauty that has lasted well into their later years.

Go for the Natural Look

While Italian women usually wear makeup when out in public, they prefer a natural and sophisticated look. They are not fans of over-the-top makeup as they believe it looks fake, obvious and cheap. Instead, they use cosmetics to make the most of their natural features. Painted nails complete a polished look.

Milan Fashion Week might have just wrapped up, but Italian beauty never ceases. If you have ever visited the boot-shaped country, you already know that millennia of cultural evolution have turned Italian women into … well, Earth-walking goddesses. Their chic and charm appears effortless – and yet it is so hard to recreate.

For those non-ordained into Italian femininity by birth, Haute Beauty has collected some tips that will get you close enough.

Olive Oil Everything
A delicious salad dressing, olive oil is also a potent beauty weapon. What is even better – it can be slathered on from head to toe. Rich in vitamin E and hydrating squalene, it smoothens the hair, giving it a lustrous sheen, and moisturizes the skin, leaving it smooth and subtle.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Italian women rarely apply more than a drop of makeup. Many eschew it altogether, focusing instead on moisturizers. Obsessed with healthy skin, they choose emollients that heavy and rich in beneficial ingredients and massages it into the skin for optimum results.

Take it Easy with the Hair
Italian women know not to over-wash their strands. Instead of stripping their locks out of important oils every time they step into the shower, they rely on products like dry shampoos to keep their manes lively. Italians also boldly experiment with their hairstyles – a new stunning look changes the mood and perspective on life quite fast. For most women with kinky hair, they typically have natural textures like 3c 4a hair.

Color Correction
No big fans of makeup, Italian women are experts in applying pigments strategically. Lips and nails get all the color treatment – from dramatic darks to vivid lights. The trick to master here is how to use less makeup to achieve more.

No Stress
Kick stress out of your routine with a good meal and a glass of wine, Italian-style. Apparently, Italians do not diet but eat small portions of largely whole food throughout the day – and maintain slim figures. For Italians, a glass of wine with dinner is a ritual – not to mention to mental and health benefits of it.

More than anything else you ought to borrow from Italians, however, is to relax and take life as it comes. A positive outlooks nurtures beauty.

Italian Cosmetics Companies

Some of the top cosmetic companies in the world were established in Italy and have grown into some of the most recognized cosmetic brands in the world, such as Pupa and Borghese. Similarly, many international cosmetics companies source products from Italy to use in their cosmetics. Italy is well-known for its thermal baths and spas and many of the most famous spas in Italy have launched their own range of beauty products. Cali Beauty Farm and Terme di Saturnia are two examples of such companies.
