Green tea, sushi, miso soup and magnesium in foods are largely responsible for maintaining healthy skin. They also take constant baths in hot springs, which are very skin-friendly. Eating, cultural and even the climate helps Japanese women to take care of their appearance.
Japanese skin care routine
The skin cleansers that Japanese women use are often oil-based, so they can clean without taking the body's natural oils. Others cleanse their skin more than once to make sure all the makeup and dirt is gone. We recommend natural camellia oil. People in Japan often use serum to treat and moisturize their skin. The serum is chosen carefully, for each situation and climate, and allow time for the skin to absorb the serum without touching other products together.
The sun is a great enemy of the skin, so the Japanese always use sunscreen that exists in thousands of forms like spray, lotion, and gel. Japanese women also wear sunscreen before applying makeup. Exposure to the sun results in freckles, spots, and wrinkles. Thanks to the help of sunscreen and also the climate in Japan, they manage to maintain their perfect appearance. They avoid using alcohol to cleanse the face, it does is increase the pores and oiliness.
Japanese women also exfoliate their skin a lot, they use finely ground azuki beans. They also gently rub their faces with towels or bathing suits. Even the Japanese way of thinking and acting influences their appearance. Ever heard of that saying that beauty comes from the countryside? and really the way that Japanese women think helps in their routine of seeking skin perfection. To achieve this, they had to adopt different cultural customs, have a good mood and positive thoughts. Stress is a great enemy of beauty, so stay calm!
