The Magic of thanaka, what is it?

myanmar, pagodas, kingdom, pagan, buddhism, temples, burmese, burma, thanaka, magic

Anyone who visits Myanmar will notice people in the streets with what seems like mud smeared over their faces. This is a little disconcerting at first but it’s nothing to worry about.

Actually, it’s a special mixture of powdered bark that comes from a particular tree. When it’s produced, locals wipe it on their faces to act as protection against the sun. Some also say that it’s good for the skin and has anti-aging properties. When you’re in the country, try it for yourself and you can make up your own mind.
