Best Oils For Skin: Nourish skin this season with a ritual from the Middle East
Purification of the body and skin are intrinsic to the way of life in the Middle East. The Hammam is the temple of this great tradition and the place where women develop and learn time-honored expertise that focuses on the body: exfoliating scrubs and wraps that eliminate toxins, then massaging the skin with rich and nourishing oils such as Argan Oil and Olive Oil.
For over 2,000 years, women in the Middle East have been developing beauty recipes and handing them down from mother to daughter. The Hammam Purification Ritual, which protects the skin and leaves it feeling like new, is one of the most well-known. As we move into fall and winter, the skin is in most need of deeply hydrating, comforting and nourishing ingredients. Allow your mind and body travel to the Middle East in the comfort of your home as you practice parts of these time-honored beauty rituals with Cinq Mondes top two product picks for face and body:
