INSIDE IN…THE BEAUTY OF SWEDISH WOMEN

Sweden has always been considered the European country with the highest number of women who are perfect according to beauty standards. But Sweden is also the birthplace of new brands with a zero-impact philosophy, which offer highly natural products for make up and body-care.

What is passed on from mother to daughter is the care and protection of naturally very fair and sensitive skin, and the same applies to hair, which is ash blond in 80% of Swedish women. So it is highly unusual for hairdressers to propose balayage or highlights; instead, on the one hand they suggest organic treatments, and on the other pop hair-dyes in nuances which range from fuchsia to blue, and also include green.

Thanks to their innate predisposition for light cuisine, a healthy lifestyle and their miraculous genes, most Swedish women do not require particular treatments to firm up their figure. Instead, they prefer to keep skin constantly moisturised, as a remedy for the very cold temperatures which are to be found inSweden.
