A return to the ancient ways and rituals of achieving beauty
Today thousands of years old methods and rituals to become beautiful are increasing in popularity. Bel Jacobs investigates the rituals of past generations who were more sensitive about themselves and how to live in balance on this planet today.
In the 1963 film ‘Cleopatra’, British actress Elizabeth Taylor plays the role of an Egyptian queen who rejects the invitation of an envoy from the Roman emperor Mark Antony while she is surrounded by flowers in a cistern filled with milk. I was enjoying the swinging of the golden boat while sitting naked.
His refusal may have been due to his personal problems as it is well known that he had problems during the filming – it was known at the time that the actor playing Elizabeth Taylor and Marcus Antonius and her lover, Richard Burton, – but the symbolism of this scene is not alien to us: in ancient Egypt, queens, and goddesses were known for their sexual power and sexual attraction, their deep commitment to natural remedies and practices.
The reason was their need for fertility, motherhood, and healing. Elizabeth Taylor’s ‘Cleopatra’ is often shown bathing and enjoying herself, as if she were a real-life: The methods and recipes for keeping oneself beautiful were time-consuming and labour-intensive among the wealthy ancient Egyptians, whose It started with bathing in milk with saffron oil for a long time.
No element of the beauty preparations of these elite Egyptian women was accidental. The lactic acid in milk makes the skin clean and smooth, while saffron has been used for thousands of years to treat various conditions. Saffron spice is carefully harvested from the orange centre of the flower of the purple saffron plant ‘Crocus sativus’. Cultivated in the hot arid belt of the earth, from Spain in the west to Kashmir in the east, this spice is called ‘red gold’ due to the importance and value of its production.
These flowers must be picked by hand at dawn, and the thin threads with saffron at their centre must be delicately separated from the flower. It takes about 5,000 flowers to produce just one ounce of saffron thread. Prices are already high and will only get higher.
Among today’s best-selling products that will be in high demand in the future, the value of saffron can be realistically estimated. Who cares where such products come from since a spoonful of the latest Mega Cream from a bottle costs us 80 British pounds?
A 2021 study by business consultancy NPD shows that 68% of its total consumers want skin care products made with ‘clean’ ingredients. Responding to the growing demand for cleanly sourced products in the beauty care industry, a group of beauty mega-brands has launched the ‘EcoBeautyScore Consortium’, a global Developed to establish a transparent environmental impact scoring system.
Similarly, the new BeBeauty Coalition aims to gather consumer endorsements and endorsements of their products at the individual level to counter the industry’s considerable influence. Against this backdrop, it is also being seen that consumer interest in natural and organic ingredients is increasing – according to UK-based research firm Ecovia Intelligence, this interest can be seen as In 2020, the turnover of this industry reached 11.9 billion dollars, which is 2.9% higher than the previous year.
And in this brave new world, with its focus on natural and social equality, traditional ingredients and rituals worthy of ‘Cleopatra’ are overwhelmingly influencing today’s consumers. Imelda Burke, a natural beauty consultant, wrote in her 2016 book The Nature of Beauty that ‘we’ve been taught to reject tradition and look for sources ‘outside the laboratory.’ While new discoveries are important, we can learn much from our ancestors.
Take for example rose oil, which has a long history of use in the Middle East. Still, one of the world’s largest producers, Turkey is the source of rose water, which has a history of use dating back 2,000 years. This extract can now be distilled from other sources that sell it at a much higher price. And it’s no wonder:
Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that hydrate the skin, nature’s most beautiful flower is an effective treatment for skin inflammation, and it leaves dry skin feeling refreshed and refreshed. Can be used to make pleasant, while it smells like it comes from a ‘National Trust’ garden.
And while the Western world has seen an increase in the use of turmeric in recent years, it’s not just in drinks like lattes, but this bright yellow herb has been used as an Ayurvedic medicine for more than four and a half thousand years. is being used. Victoria Health’s own pharmacist, Shabir Dia, told the popular general magazine, Vogue, that ‘turmeric is a very effective herb for boosting the immune system. features.’ In India, the bride and groom apply turmeric to their hands and faces before marriage as a symbol of purity and as a blessing. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, but it can also have side effects.
Elsewhere in Morocco, women of the Berber tribe still distil argan oil from the prickly branches of its Argali trees. Skin-enhancing omega-3s and sex-rich argan oil have been traded as beauty agents in and around the Mediterranean for thousands of years. Across the seas in the Pacific region of Polynesia, monoi oil, made by steeping the petals of ‘Tahitian gardenias’ in coconut oil, is a 2,000-year-old oil used by the indigenous Maui people to nourish skin and hair. Used to soften. And they also revered this oil. In Costa Rica, people of the ‘Barbri’ and ‘Kabicar‘ ethnic groups use green tea to improve their complexion, heal blemishes and reduce inflammation.
All these ingredients have now made their way back into the Western skincare industry. But the story is no longer about Western brands exploiting exotic herbs and spices as the next ‘big thing’, echoing some of the horror stories of their former colonizers. Beauty is also seeing a growing number of black and indigenous women embracing their heritage by reviving their ancestral rituals and ingredients, which they are proud of, rather than forced upon. are – and these traditional herbs meet their modern-day needs as well. Like ‘Labelle’, Anishinabe-Canadian, Jennifer Harper and Prado’s Beauty’s ‘Cheekbone Beauty’, created by Zikana-Arizonian Sissy Meadow, like ‘Sage’ and ‘Lavender‘, these companies promote their products.
Claims to be distilled from natural herbs, which have been used by their consumer communities for decades. Many manufacturers of such products have also created new jobs by promoting the use of their brands in their communities, from collecting ingredients in nature to selling products at farmers’ markets and storefronts.
This intellectual convergence between different groups of society associated with this industry is also indicative of other changes. Speaking to Cosmetics Design Europe in December 2021, Amarjit Sahota, president and founder of Aquovia Intelligence, said, ‘The conversation is shifting from natural and organic to sustainability now.
We’re seeing a trend towards more sustainable ingredients, so many natural and organic beauty pioneers are looking to create products that are better for human health and the environment. Initially, the formulations of such products were plant-based so as not to have adverse effects on human health. But as sustainability has become such an important part of the beauty industry, these pioneers are really leading the movement for responsibility when it comes to sustainability initiatives. It is no longer just a movement to promote natural and organic products, but a movement about wider environmental protection issues.
These environmental movements did not arise in an isolated situation. Catherine Bishop of The Future Laboratory, a strategic foresight consultancy, says, ‘In light of the Covid-19 and climate crisis causing floods, droughts, crop failures and displacement of people around the world, we acknowledge that the natural environment is changing. It is time for humans to recognize that we have to live in harmony with and in relation to the natural environment.
Beauty practices and recipes that are in tune with and connected to the natural environment are finally gaining priority. Consumers are looking for products that reflect and respond to these priorities: for beauty for other people and for the planet and all its life, and they are looking for ways that Satisfy them mentally – and connect them to a wider world ecosystem.
Restoring the balance
Ancient practices that are inspired by nature and natural ingredients are being explored as a means of restoring balance and reconnecting with the essentials of the world. Australian wellness brand Subtle Energies is combining traditional techniques from the Indian practices of Ayurveda with the benefits of aromatherapy. Its skincare includes ingredients such as jojoba and ashwagandha in palmarosa, mogra, and frankincense oils.
Farida Irani, the founder of the brand, says ‘Essential oils are wonderful tools gifted to us by Mother Earth. They are life-giving and by using them on us we are increasing our life force. It is the application of ancient wisdom in modern times to help people live more consciously for themselves and for the planet.
Catherine Bishop tells ‘Ancient methods for caring for the body, mind, skin, and hair are derived from the earth and nature. They are often associated with particular seasons and seasonal events, honouring the land and the flora and fauna they do by improving the environment, respectfully using them as decoration or cleaning or food. The negative effects of human activities on the Earth have exceeded the effects of nature’s natural balance of the environment.
But with the negative impacts on Earth caused by overuse of energy, be it their carbon footprint or resource use, such conscious and planet-friendly beauty practices, and ingredients are becoming increasingly important. , taking care of your daily natural beauty or hygiene routines, are helping to reduce the effects of negative human activities.’
Simple beauty routines include ‘Gua Sha’, a traditional Chinese technique of self-massaging the body with a hand-sized smooth-edged stone – usually jade, brilliant rose quartz, or black obsidian. Made up of – applied to the face to improve blood circulation in your body. ‘Gua Sha’ has been used for centuries to treat a number of ailments, including muscle pain and stress, and has now been embraced by the Western beauty industry. Applying this cold stone to your forehead and cheeks for fifteen minutes helps relieve nervous tension for days.
Chinese writer, Hana Rose Yee described her grandmother’s ‘Gua Sha‘ ritual in Stylist magazine ‘to this day she takes her Guasha and applies it to her face in smooth, elegant ways every evening. I was obsessed with it as a kid. I used to sit by her bed and watch her do this while she smiled at me in the mirror. He once gave me a guasha to hold, and I remember how cold and heavy it felt in my hands. Now that I’m older, she taught me how to do it myself. Today I do Gua Sha once a week with a rose quartz roller. I hope that one day my grandmother will give me her jade gua sha stone.’
But perhaps few things encourage consumers to slow down and reconsider the use of heat than the use of heat, which has been used in many cultures, including the Aztecs. For at least 700 years before the arrival of the Spanish colonists in ancient Mesoamerica, the Temazcal volcanoes were hotbeds of steam, and in the steam, not its water, the Aztecs sat to relieve their fatigue. The word Temazcal is derived from the word ‘temazcali’ which means warm house. And most Temazcals resemble domed structures, made of volcanic rock, and are symbolic of the womb of Mother Earth, suggesting ideas of rebirth.
Modern science has proven that the Aztecs were right. Steam can help clear the blocked respiratory system and relieve some other ailments. The ancient Maya civilization often held temazcal ceremonies for warriors returning from battle, which involved Mesoamerican chanting, meditation, and hot rocks mixed with herbal water to create aromatic steam. Today, sitting in a ‘Sona’ style steam room offers similar benefits.
Farida Irani has high hopes for the return of ancient rituals. ‘Disrupting the elements we are made of has caused many of the problems we see in the world today. But if we balance our activities on the planet – first and foremost ourselves and the environment around us – we will see a positive change in the way we live.
