Japanese women are known worldwide for their porcelain skin. Although there is certainly a genetic factor, as well as the almost obsessive protection from exposure to the sun, there are tricks that are part of the Japanese cosmetic tradition that undoubtedly contribute to their youthful appearance.
Proper skin care is essential for the prevention of wrinkles and skin blemishes . Just like Japanese women do, we too should protect our facial skin from prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays by applying sunscreen all year round.
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 tricks to your daily beauty routine.
Green tea against swelling and inflammation of the skin
Although it is known for something else entirely, 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 blemishes, 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 cleansed face and leave for 15 minutes before washing your face as normal and moisturizing.
Rice water against skin blemishes and wrinkles
Simple to prepare and apply, rice water is perhaps the most important secret of Japanese cosmetics. Being rich in antioxidants, it lightens the skin and eliminates blemishes 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 the skin of your face and leave it to act for 25 minutes.
Sea salt to remove dead cells
Salt is an excellent natural exfoliant, effective in eliminating impurities, hydrating and rejuvenating the skin. By removing 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 your dry face using circular movements. Leave it to act for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
