Beauty Tip: Mimosa tenuiflora
This fern-like tree grows in southern Mexico and Brazil. Alternatively known as the "skin tree" or tepezcohuite, extract from its dry bark has been used since Mayan times to repair and protect skin, and it has a tremendous effect in helping skin heal from burns. It can be found in powder, cream, and soap form—Mexican actress Salma Hayek famously made it the foundation of her line of skin care products.
Hairstyle: All about the volume
Many Mexican women tease, spray, and mousse to get gorgeous hair with body. Hair is a big part of beauty, and has been conveyed in many volume-heavy styles throughout the years to show its importance in everyday life. When emulating looks that stress volume, it's easy to rely on tools and processes thay damage and dry out hair over time. So it's important to use a nourishing shampoo and conditioner like Madison Reed's regularly to combat split ends and dry, flyaway hair.
