Shop the Full Story: Best Beauty Products from Around the World
Many of the best skin and hair products use natural ingredients from around the globe. Some of these magical ingredients have been used for centuries. Here are some amazing products to try:
Fresh Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar 7.8 oz
This looks like a bar of soap except it is made from 100% Umbrian clay! It can be used as s deep cleanser or to calm irritations like rosacea, blemishes and ingrown hairs. It also absorbs toxins due to its high mineral content. I like to use it in the t-zone area where oil builds up and find that it works extremely well (especially for spot-treating blemishes). Umbrian Clay, found only in Nocera Umbra, Italy, also has anti-inflammatory properties. The basis of therapeutic treatments for centuries dating back to the 6th century B.C., Umbrian Clay has been known to clear pores and brighten complexions.

Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream
I love this styling cream because it contains argan oil and has all the benefits of the original MORROCCANOIL treatment for hair but is not greasy (and smells amazing). Use about a dime size amount in wet hair each time before styling and it will protect it from the wrath of the harsh styling tools we all love to use. It hydrates the hair perfectly and is my go-to styling product of choice. Argan oil, found in Morocco is produced from the kernels of the argan tree that only grows wild in semi-desert soil. The rare oil is renowned as a hair, skin and cuticle treatment for its hydrating properties and vitamin content.

Desert Essence Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner
This therapeutic formula heals and treats the scalp and preserves hair’s natural emollients. I love how the shampoo and conditioner smells minty and fresh. Plus, it leaves hair feeling super clean and shiny. Tea tree oil, which hails from Australia, is taken from the leaves of a plant which is native to its northeast coast. It has many beneficial medical properties and is commonly used in Australia as an antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal.

Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Face Cream
Kiehl’s recently introduced this anti-aging moisturizer formulated with the rare rosa artica or “Resurrection Flower,” as its main active ingredient. This new product promises to repair cells, reduce lines and wrinkles, and protect skin from future damage. I enjoy using it regularly because it makes my skin feel firm and hydrated. Rosa artica is a plant that grows in the mountains of Bulgaria and the secret lies in the flower’s ability to retain water within the cell which is why it can survive for approximately 30 months without any water.
