Japanese women have enviably youthful skin with a decided lack of fine lines and wrinkles, well into their later years. In fact, some Japanese women never develop lines and wrinkles. How so? Not fair! What is their secret? Is it just genetic? Well, genetics have much to do with everything, but so does lifestyle and what we do every day.
How do they do it?
So, lets ‘process hack’ what Japanese women do, and get some of that youth elixir for all of us!
To crack the code of that flawless, glowing skin, one of the biggest secrets is to massage. It doesn’t have to be for long, but while cleansing and moisturizing, massage upwards in gentle, circular motions to improve blood circulation.
Eating a lot of anti-inflammatory foods is also great, as inflammation causes disease and aging in the body.
Then, the next key is to use gentle and super-hydrating products that do not contain harsh chemicals, and do not dry the skin!
Use a super gentle cleanser, like Shiseido Benefiance Extra Creamy Cleansing Foam. A rich, foaming cleanser that gently removes impurities and excess surface cells which may contribute to signs of aging, without stripping the skin of its essential moisture. Foams instantly into a delicate, creamy lather, to make the skin feel moist. It is formulated with granules containing humectant, which leaves skin fresh and moist.
The other step that Japanese women swear by, is to use a skin softening product, instead of a toner. Skin softeners lock in moisture and brighten skin. The famous SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is perfect – it contains vitamins, amino acides, minerals and organic acids that leave skin incredibly soft and radiant.
Two more ways that Japanese women complete their successful skincare routines is to use a moisturizing beauty masks at least twice a month, and to use products rich in collagen. Kill two birds with one stone by using Dr. Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen-Gel Deep Moisture Mask. It is luxuriously infused with the equivalent of a bottle of beauty essence. Collagen, hyaluronic acid and ceramide moisturize both the surface of your skin and deep within as well.
So, start caring for your skin the Japanese way, for beauty longevity!
