The other night I was watching a documentary on a tribe somewhere in Africa on the Travel Channel. It suddenly popped into my mind that every time I watch these types of documentaries, be it these people are in Africa, India, Mexicans or Native Indians of a particular land - they all have flawless skin.
That's the first thing I started to notice. Their skin is so smooth and creamy looking! They don't have any blemishes or scars from acne, MashaAllah. Their hair, you'd expect it to be frizzy and nappy but their hair is really well tamed, a lot of them even have pearly white teeth.
You'd think someone living in like... a jungle their entire life would look beastly or something. But mashaAllah these people eat the most healthiest and natural of foods. They have foods that haven't been processed the ways our are, and without all the nasty additives and preservatives. Sure they drink some cow blood and raw meat once in a while =x haha but for the most part they have wayyy better diets than we do.
They use the most natural, and purest forms of treatment for their skins, they have raw shea butter which softens their skin, and even though they may not bathe everyday, they don't have to worry about hard water damaging their skin.
Even from within the sunnah, there are plenty ahadeeth teaching us that the most natural forms of fruits and vegetables and plants are not only good for us on the inside, but also on the outside! I must say, sometimes I do fall for the glamorous advertisements and commercials, but why should I believe that when they've failed me for so many years? The most honest and trustworthy person has left an example for me of the best products to use to improve my physical health!!
