Beauty of the Maghreb: The secrets of yesteryear, recipes that work!

The manufacturers of the most modern beauty products did not invent anything, they were inspired by the beauty recipes of our grandmothers. From argan oil to rose water, these secrets are a real legacy passed down from mother to daughter among the Maghreb people.

The Maghreb people are reputed to have a sensual and refined world. They are very attached to the softness of their skin, the shine of their hair and the beauty of their eyes.

Why then ruin ourselves in cosmetic products, let us instead be inspired by the know-how of yesteryear, rediscover pure raw materials, learn to make our own mixtures and forget the cosmetics industry which sells us at a high price their mediocre manufactured care? .

Dry skin will find its happiness in a tablespoon of honey mixed with rose water. To forget the first wrinkles, beat an egg white until stiff and mix with argan oil.

Eyes that kill

The hammam remains sacred among the most modern North Africans, it is often nicknamed "silent doctor" for its anti-stress virtues. The heat opens the pores and prepares the skin for care.
