Let’s admit it, we all want to be ageless! Who even loves aging anyway?
But the truth is eventually everyone has to age, but surely we can enjoy beautiful skin and age slower if we follow a good skincare routine (and a hearty diet).
Japanese women have beautiful glowing skin, and they age much slower than women from other nations. Strangely it’s hard to find out their age as they look so much younger. Credit goes to their oil-free, healthy diet and powerful skincare routine, which is mostly au naturel.
Today, we’ll spill the secrets of the ever-gorgeous and luminous skin of Japanese beauties.
Let’s find out some amazing Japanese anti-aging secrets to look a lot younger than your age!
Invest in a gentle cleanser
Japanese women believe in skincare products close to nature. They use and recommend products with fewer chemicals in them.
Japanese women believe in a gentle cleansing ritual and follow it every day. However, they advise that You should clean the face only once a day that is bedtime. As washing it more than once would cause hydration loss. If you have oily skin, you can use a natural/herbal wet wipe to cleanse your skin during the day.
Skip Toner and Say Yes to Softener
Skin softeners are designed to hydrate your skin and infuse it with skin-friendly nutrients. At the same time, toners suck out the oil and make your skin dry. Softeners seal in the moisture and brighten up the complexion. Softeners make the skin smooth, soft, and plump. Most women in Japan use skin softeners and love them!
How to use it? Take a small amount of softener to apply on your face and gently pat it in until it has fully absorbed into the skin. Follow up with a moisturizer.
Make Collagen your BFF!
Japanese women take skincare very seriously. That is why they use collagen-rich creams, sheet masks, and even food. They consume collagen drinks, eat food rich in collagen, apply night creams that contain collagen as an active ingredient. They take collagen pills.
Basically, their life revolves around collagen. Add collagen to your daily routine if you really want to see a change!
Mask yourself for that glow: Skin masks are available for a reason. I hope you have realized it by now. USE THEM! Japanese women love their masks and use them every 15 days. Use an anti-aging mask and let it sit for 20-30 min. This will give a glow you’ve always dreamed of (thank me later).
Massage like a Pro
Commit yourself to regular face massages. Good skin only comes to those who work hard for it!
Regular use of a face massager will tone and tighten the skin. You can get a good massage from a beauty store or online. (When it comes to skin it’s advised to use the best, don’t look for discounts and products on sale as they’re often cheap products. Also, don’t forget to check its customer reviews before ordering ).
Opt for the ones that have multi-angular rollers to fit every curve of your face and body. Surprisingly Japanese Women use it on their legs, arms, and stomach too. Sounds too much?
Useful tip: Use the massager while watching TV. You’ll get compliments for being a multi-tasker, and you’ll get your work done in no time – as time flies while watching T.V.
Skin Fast Once in a While
Using Too many products regularly can cause the skin to suffocate, resulting in a loss of elasticity and dullness. Take off your makeup before bedtime and leave your skin bare until the next morning.
I know it’s tempting to slap on some serum or moisturizer, but because it’s skin fast, stay away from any product. The next day, apply a skin softener or a face mask to add in moisture.
Get a Nice Anti-aging Cream
Of course, you need an anti-aging cream to look and feel younger. Always use organic anti-aging products (trusted brand) and apply them religiously every night. Get your 8 hours of beauty sleep. And you’re halfway there!
Stop Ignoring your Sunscreen
After cleansing-softener-moisturizer, most women jump to makeup! But this could cause some serious skin issues like fine lines, dark spots, pigmentations, unwanted tan. Sun is the skin’s biggest enemy.
Slather a generous amount of sunscreen of an SPF of 40-50, reapply every three hours to stay protected from the sun. Don’t hesitate to use an umbrella or a wide-brimmed cap for extra protection.
Add Seaweed to Your Diet
Japanese women eat seaweed regularly because it’s loaded with anti-aging skincare benefits. Consume seaweed every day to fight fine lines and wrinkles.
Seaweed is excellent anti-aging food and contains a wealth of vitamins and minerals, which is hard to find in other foods. It contains natural anti-inflammatory properties; seaweed also reduces redness caused by rosacea as well as swelling. The iodine in it regulates the metabolism and helps rejuvenate the skin.
Use a Skin Serum
The job of serum is to stimulate cell growth and bring new skin cells to the surface. It helps to brighten up the skin.
A good face serum will boost collagen production, which is the main ingredient to keep your skin young and wrinkle-free. When used regular basis, it brightens a dull complexion and leaves you with hydrated, healthier skin.
Drink Green Tea
Green tea contains a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from UV rays and prevents skin cancer. It is also a potent anti-aging ingredient that combats signs of aging when ingested or applied topically. Add a cup of green tea to your daily routine, and your skin will thank you for it. Also, it will help you shed off some extra fat- Bonus!
I hope you didn’t find these Japanese anti-aging secrets too difficult to incorporate! They are a whole lot different than Korean ones and are so distinct!
