Thailand's cosmetic gems

The kingdom's cosmetics industry is one of the most advanced in Asia. Ranked 17th in world production of cosmetics, and with an estimated value of B56 billion, the industry has seen grown of 10-20 per cent annually for the last decade. However, most of the products flooding the market are superficial if not artificial, with their value deriving mostly from clever marketing and packaging. Luckily there are many authentic and useful products out there, and many of them not costing much at all. Why not take advantage of the abundance of the natural gems of the country. In Thailand's beaches and rainforests lie some of the most inexpensive and simple beauty products. Here are several gems:

Magnificent mango

These succulent fruits have so many uses. Aside from being extremely palatable (especially when ripe and with sweet sticky rice), mangoes have copious health benefits. Enriched with antioxidants which help in cell rejuvenation and repair, mangoes help detoxify your skin from the inside and can also prevent the occurrence of acne. In fact, raw mango juice is an excellent astringent that can effectively treat acne. You can boil a slice of mango, unripened or raw, in water and use this water to wash your face, and (assuming you've addressed other factors to the cause of your acne) watch the pimples gradually disappear.

Sandy sensations

Walk your way to baby soft feet, at the beach. If you can get the delightful chance to explore the many beautiful beaches in the area, why not take advantage of the free exfoliator. Dip your feet into the sea, so that the sand sticks, then enjoy a stroll. Those stubborn dead skin cells will shed away.

New Paths Retreat

Curing coconut

Lately, major beauty brands worldwide, such as Clinique, for example, have been using coconut in their products, and commanding huge prices (their correcting serum infused with 'coconut acid' for example). Indeed, coconut has many versatile uses for health and beauty. Is your hair feeling parched from the sun? Remove the rind from half an avocado and put the fleshy part in a bowl. Then add four tablespoons of coconut oil and mix it all together to make a creamy paste. Massage into damp, towel dried hair and comb to distribute evenly. Leave for 20 minutes, then rinse out and shampoo as usual. This paste can also be used to boost eyelash growth and pigmentation. Simply brush it onto your eyelashes.
