3 Japanese secrets for skin that looks 20 years younger

Japanese women are known worldwide for their porcelain skin. Although there is certainly a genetic factor, in addition to the almost manic protection against sun exposure, there are tricks that are part of the   Japanese cosmetic tradition   that undoubtedly contribute to your youthful appearance.

Proper skin care is essential for the   prevention of wrinkles and blemishes on the skin   . As the Japanese do, we too should protect our facial skin from prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays by applying sunscreen throughout the year.

Wash your face well every night and moisturize it to keep your skin healthy and nourished. Add one of the following  three Japanese facial care tips   to your daily beauty routine.

Green tea against swelling and inflammation of the skin

Although known for everything else, this drink can also be used in cosmetics. Green tea is rich in polyphenols, which help block the action of free radicals and prevent wrinkles and skin spots, and reduce skin inflammation.

Mix 200 ml of green tea with 50 grams of ground oats, 1 tablespoon of avocado oil and 10 drops of lemon.

Apply to clean face and leave on for 15 minutes before washing your face normally and moisturizing.

Rice water against skin spots and wrinkles

Easy to prepare and apply, rice water is perhaps the most important secret of Japanese cosmetics. Rich in antioxidants, it brightens the skin and eliminates spots caused by sun exposure.

Rice water is also effective against wrinkles, sagging and expression lines. Its minerals help stimulate blood circulation and rejuvenate the face.

Cook 250 grams of rice in half a liter of water for a few minutes. Drain and let the liquid cool, then apply it to your face and leave it for 25 minutes.

Sea salt to remove dead skin cells

Salt is an excellent natural exfoliant, effective in removing impurities, hydrating and rejuvenating the skin. By eliminating dead cells, it stimulates the regeneration of new ones, giving our face a young and radiant appearance.

Mix two tablespoons of sea salt with a little cream, then apply to dry face in circular motions. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
