You can’t imagine Italian food without olive oil, can you? Well, women in Italy can’t imagine their beauty routine without it. Infused with hydrating squalene and anti-ageing vitamin E, applying olive oil to your skin and hair can offer a lot of benefits. It moisturises the skin making it look healthy and glowing. Most women apply olive oil to the ends of their hair after washing it to maintain a healthy shine.

South Korean women avoid the sun at all costs. Italian women, on the other hand, tend to embrace it.

However, they don’t step out without wearing sunscreen to ensure their beautiful skin stays protected while the sun is up.

 

Follow low maintenance routines

Age-old, time-tested and natural ingredients are preferred over new products. Sunscreen, moisturiser and a signature perfume and lipstick are most Italian women’s idea of following a low maintenance routine.
