International: Beauty Secrets From Around The World



Japanese brides have discovered the secret to flawless skin — brightening creams. Products like these help fade any age spots or acne scars while moisturizing and softening your skin. Japanese makeup artists suggest starting the cream six months before the big day for maximum impact. These cleansers and moisturizers are gentle and work amazingly to prep skin for the big day!

South Korea

To deal with under eye circles, South Korean brides depend on bright concealers. They typically use it in two shades only--peach to counteract bluish tones, and beige to layer on top.


Lavender oil is this country's secret weapon. It's an antiseptic, which makes it a wonderful natural treatment for getting breakouts under control. Mix a few drops with water in a spray bottle, and apply it daily starting six to eight months before the big day. It can also be used to refresh dry skin and red skin which is great for sunburned summer skin.

West Africa

The miracle product from this region is Black African Soap, which uses indigenous palm oils not found anywhere else. It detoxifies the skin, yet it's gentle enough for daily use. Start using one at least three to six months before the wedding.


Too little sleep (or too many drinks) the night before your wedding can leave you with bloodshot eyes. English brides love “Optrex Eyedew Dazzling Blue Eye Drops”, which have a hint of blue to counteract the redness and make the whites of your eyes even brighter. It’s always a good idea to add a little extra sparkle on your big day!

The Philippines

Need a pick-me-up? Grab a tube of “Human Nature Balm”. Apparently, it has eucalyptus and peppermint in it. Use it under your eyes the day of the wedding if you’re feeling extra tired--it will wake you right up!
