14. Brazilians Set Trends in the Beauty Industry

Brazil has many unique practices to keep the women of the country looking beautiful. Waxing is a popular practice, especially since the hot climate means that many women find themselves wearing bikinis, shorts, and crop tops through many months of the year. The Brazilian wax in particular is something that’s been adopted by other countries, too.

Brazil has also set hair trends. At one time, keratin smoothing treatments known as a Brazilian blowout were popular because they help deal with the frizz that many Brazilians have from their natural hair and the humidity that they live in. While this has become controversial in recent years because there may be formaldehyde in the treatment, it is still used in other countries around the world. Another hair trend that is catching on in recent years is Veleterapia candle burning. This is a practice where the ends of the hair are twisted so that split ends are exposed. Then, the split ends are burnt off with an open flame. It’s even something that several Brazilian models swear by!

15. Brazilian Culture is Very Relaxed

In many western countries, society is very fast-paced. It seems like everyone is always in a hurry, and things like multi-tasking are very common. By contrast, Brazilians have a very laid back, relaxed lifestyle. They tend to get to things when they get to them, rather than having a deadline. It’s not uncommon for people to run late, though it’s well understood in most situations.

The relaxed culture of Brazilians helps reduce the amount of stress that people feel on a day-to-day basis. Excessive stress, especially on a regular basis, causes problems with memory and even advances the aging process. Brazilian women are the most beautiful in the world because they age gracefully and their relaxed lifestyle may contribute to that.

16. Plastic Surgery is Popular

Plastic surgery is a common practice in Brazil. They have the most plastic surgeons per capita and are second in the world regarding how many procedures are done. In 2015, Brazilians had over 1,200,000 procedures done, accounting for 12.7% of plastic surgeries in the world. This doesn’t mean that everyone has something done. However, the option is there for women who want to improve on their looks.

Brazilian women are taught to be confident in their beauty. However, they also believe that if you don’t like something about yourself, you should change it or improve on it. Reconstructive procedures are not as common as they are in countries like the United States, but lifting procedures for various areas of the body are popular. The Brazilian butt lift is a well-known surgery that was first popularized in Brazil, which involves taking your own body fat and injecting it into your butt. Even though Brazilians are generally an open people when it comes to sharing medical information, however, it’s not considered polite to ask if someone has had work done.

17. Sunshine Gives Everyone a Healthy Glow

On average, Brazil gets 12-13 hours of sunshine per day. These long days make it easy for Brazilians to maintain the look of healthy, bronzed skin that makes them so attractive. Even though Brazilians spend a lot of time in the sun, they do wear sunscreen. Many women opt for lower SPF varieties, which lets them protect their skin from damage while still giving them a chance to tan. Self-tanner is also used by women who want a deeper tan without risking UV damage.

Tan lines are another reason that Brazilian women are so beautiful. Brazilian men love their women with tan lines and Brazilian women love to make their men happy. It’s also really easy to maintain tan lines when bikinis are such a popular fashion choice. If you’re going to mimic this idea to give you a healthy natural glow, just make sure you’re protecting your skin based on your skin type.

Brazilians shower a lot, often more than once a day because the climate is so hot and humid.

18. Brazilians Shower a Lot

In Brazil, everyone showers a lot. Bath tubs are considered a luxury, but most people have electric showers in their homes. It’s common for people to shower twice a day, sometimes even more frequently because of the climate. Electric showers are preferred because they heat up faster than gas, so there’s always hot water for everyone in the family to take a shower as needed through the day.

Showering regularly stops people from looking hot, sweaty, and generally rough through the day. Since women always stay fresh, their skin is glowing. Plus, showering regularly stops Brazilians from smelling sweaty too, even in the hot weather! There’s a lot of research that smelling good makes you attractive to the other sex, so this could very well contribute to the reason that the rest of the world finds Brazilians so attractive.

Brazilian women marry and have children later, which leaves more time for caring for themselves and relaxing.

19. Many Women Wait Until Later in Life for Marriage and Children

Becoming a mother doesn’t make you any less beautiful, but it does change your body. It also changes how often you’re able to get a full night of rest! By waiting until later in life, Brazilian women are able to keep up on their beauty sleep. They also aren’t handling any of the stress that comes along with raising children.

The average age of childbearing in Brazil is 27.9 years, though many women wait until after they are 30 to get married and start having babies. With this being the social norm, there also isn’t as much pressure from parents to start giving them grandchildren. Plus, Brazilians have naturally curvy bodies that bounce back well after childbirth.

In Brazil, access to childcare and the societal norm to bring children out to social events makes it easier for parents to rewind, reducing the effects of stress and aging.

20. Babysitters Give Parents Time to Relax

Even once parents have children, they don’t necessarily stop making time for themselves. While maternity leave is 120-180 days in Brazil, it’s still common for parents to start interviewing babysitters not long after learning they are having a baby. Unlike babysitting services in some countries, childcare is relatively inexpensive in Brazil. Plus, babysitters usually help with cooking and cleaning in addition to helping with the kids. With access to a good babysitter, mothers are able to relax. Having time to relax is essential to health.

Research shows that relaxation has benefits like reduced blood pressure, improved sleep, better pain management, and improved mental health. Even when the babysitter is taking the night off, it’s common to see Brazilian women out with their children. You might visit a movie theater and see babies crawling on the floor, while the parents are enjoying a movie. Children are also frequently in attendance at parties, which may be held later in the evening. Going out, with or without their kids, gives Brazilian women a reason to look their best. It also gives them some much-needed time to relax.

21. Brazilian Women Have Spicy Attitudes

In Brazil, it’s not uncommon to overhear a couple arguing on public transportation or walking down the street. Many Brazilian women have feisty attitudes, though making up happens just as quickly. This is probably because Brazilians are not afraid to make their emotions known.

While some people prefer a woman who is sweeter and more gentle, many others find a woman with an occasional temper or feisty attitude attractive. It keeps things interesting and keeps their partner on their toes. Plus, there’s never a dull moment in the relationship. Instead of going through the same motions every day, men are constantly trying to figure their partner out. This keeps a little mystery and excitement in the relationship.

22. Brazilian Women Have the Time and Money to Maintain Beauty

Maintaining a high standard of beauty is something that takes time and money. With the typical living situation in Brazil, young women have that. It’s common for unmarried people to continue living with their parents, even after they’ve turned 18. Young people live with their parents until they get married. During that time, bills are split in half and the money saved is set aside until the young person moves into their own home.

In addition to giving Brazilians a chance to save money, this time with parents also saves time. Chores around the house are shared and the family eats dinner together. Since there aren’t quite as many responsibilities, young women have free time for keeping up with their beauty routines. This keeps their skin glowing and their hair and nails looking great, especially since many people do not marry until their mid-to-late 20s.

23. Gym Culture Makes it Easier to Stay Fit

Brazil has more than 34,000 fitness clubs around the country, used by both men and women who want to stay fit. In a country where it’s so hot, people wear a lot less clothing. They spend a lot of time outside and at the beach with friends and family, and they want to look great while they do it. Not only are there a lot of gyms, but gym memberships are also affordable for most people. This makes it easy to stay committed to fitness.

Another benefit of Brazilian gym culture is that they have many facilities that work well for families. Parents don’t have to worry about childcare when they go to the gym. Plus, the warm weather and the country’s enjoyment of sports like volleyball and soccer mean that people are being physically active even when they don’t have time to hit the gym.
