Hip Hip For Hungary!

People worldwide are beginning to notice the incredibly youthful, taut, and smooth skin of Hungarians. Many feel that it has something to do with the local spring waters that have advantageous healing properties. I think it also has something to do with the fact that beauty treatments such as facials and scrubs are viewed as essentials — a means of gaining clean and clear skin.

Hungarians even go as far as to believe that treatments are economical because fewer skin problems lead to the need for fewer products. It also helps that beauty therapists are well-respected and have three years of training before they can work on clients. Here are a few Hungarian products I thought you might like to check out.

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm ($102) is a black thick balm that contains Hungarian Thermal Mud to help unclog pores, draw out impurities, and clear away dead skin. It is also formulated with calcium, magnesium, zinc, and copper, which promotes collagen production while increasing moisture retention. Additional vitamins, and proteins from Hungarian waters, are blended in to help revitalize the skin.

For two more hot Hungarian skin care products

Eve Lom Cleansing Cream ($150) is an an award-winning, modern Hungarian-cult classic. It is a unique, solid cream that melts on your face. When it is massaged into your skin, all of the aromatherapy oils and cleansing properties are released.

It is recommended for removal with a muslin cloth (which also helps exfoliate)! Fans of this cleansing cream say it works wonders to remove all traces of makeup, grease, and dirt.

Ilsci Sour Cherry Gel Mask (approximately $45) is an antiaging, antioxidant-rich, fruit-acid facial mask made from herbs, fruits, and vegetables. It is perfect for those with dry skin that are looking to tighten up their pores and rehydrate their skin.

Apply a thin layer to a clean face and breathe in the sweet smell for 15 minutes. Rinse well and pat skin dry with a clean cloth.You can purchase the mask by calling the US-distributing company szep elet, llc at (888) 290-6238.

It's TRUE!! Hungarians are crazy about their skin, my co-worker is the perfect case and point.

Wow, I'm Hungarian and people say the same thing about me! I still get carded for cigarettes on the rare occasion I buy them--they're bad for the skin so it's only once or twice a year I smoke. Lotsa Hungarians around here!

hey i'm hungarian! this is totally rad! and i never really thought about it but i guess hungarians do have good skin, but i think it's because they're so obsessed with it... one of my mum's friends has the most beautiful skin and she has mild rosacea which you couldn't even see except for the fact that she constantly stresses about it!

Juliet and ccwhite, now you two are making me want to try some of the skin care mask. I am tempted to try.

ccwhite, my mom is half Hungarian and people say the same thing about her! She's 50 and she could pass for 35 or 40. I think it is the bone structure in addition to the skin. She actually kind of looks like you (juding from your small picture). Now that I am in my early 20s, people always say that I look like a young teen.

The treatments at the spas there are actually very inexpensive. I go there regularly and (though I haven't had the treatments myself) my colleagues go specifically because one can get inexpensive facials (like, $20.)

Wow those are pricey but I guess they are worth it if they really work! Unfortunately with the multitude of cheap products out there e probably spend more on cheap products then we could on expensive ones!

Could also be that maybe they eat less processed crap than we do?

I love this article! I'm Hungarian and people have said I always look younger than my age! Still, I obsess about my skin, so it's great to see these products. I sent this article to my Grandma who's actually from Hungary to get her opinion.

If it's considered economical, then if they can't afford the treatments - which I assume are equally over-priced - are they then considered a spendthrift? lol.
