Arab women also known to eat the most healthy and fresh foods. The traditional Hammams or what Westerners call Saunas include regular massage with essential oils, followed up by steaming the body. This not only helps open up the pores on the skin to absorb all that beneficial oil but the steaming helps get rid of toxins from the skin’s surface, keeping the skin radiant. Women from the Middle East also take special care to groom themselves, including the removal of undesirable body hair.
