One of the great mysteries of the world. How are the Himba women of Namibia so classically beautiful, overall?
I’m not talking about ‘exotic’ beauty, I’m talking about straightforward, symmetrical featured, almost scientifically-measured beauty. At first, you think, oh that’s just brilliant skin care and awesome hair but that doesn’t explain the actual structured features, which are — almost uniformly — spectacular.
Just … amazing. It’s like God said, “And here are your supermodels. You’re welcome.”
Is everyone here on tumblr like dumb or something? I keep reading tags on this post and everyone is like “wow that skin is FLAWLESS” or “WOW is wish I had that skin color”
……..dude, the himba women are known for putting pigmented mud on their skin to protect themselves from the sun..
