But they're not just skinny and young, we can see that their voices and sizes are actually smaller, so this beauty might be a little bit in the genes. They also wear youthful clothes and act like teenagers in attitude and voice.


Good nutrition is key to keeping your body slim and young, but Japan has a controversial diet. Although the cuisine has many healthy ingredients, the country is famous for eating industrialized products.

It is worth remembering that the PH of both thermal waters and piped water from Japan is much higher than the PH of Brazil. The treated water of Japan also does not have fluorine, in fact neither the toothpaste from japan has fluoride.

Japan's climate helps

One of the main reasons for skin aging and wrinkling is the strong heat of the sun. Something that is provided by our tropical climate. In Japan, the weather is cool and cold, and the sun likes to hide in the clouds a lot.

Some even come to the conclusion that Orientals have slanted eyes due to the climate, we can come to the same conclusion for their skin.

Not everyone has this beauty, in fact many Japanese people neglect their health and beauty. Some end up not taking care of their teeth, or just eating junk food until they get fat.

And having clean skin and being thin is not synonymous with beauty. Although there seem to be many beautiful Japanese women, they are not free from pimples and wrinkles, and many wear a lot of makeup.
