Japan impresses not only with its advanced technologies, architecture and national cuisine that attracts gourmets, but also with the exceptional beauty of the beautiful half of the population. What is the secret of eternal youth of Japanese women? And what kind of life hacks will help any girl look just as luxurious?
Women from the land of the rising sun at any age look beautiful and slender, but the secret of such beauty success of Japanese women is not limited to the genetic component. The fact is that they also strictly adhere to certain grooming rituals and carefully monitor their nutrition. What habits of Japanese women can be safely adopted if you want to achieve the same results, we tell you together with a cosmetologist, plastic surgeon Leah Havasheli.
Have you seen many overweight women among Japanese women? They eat quite a lot, but they don’t gain weight. The secret lies in the diet: their table mainly contains legumes, vegetables, fruits, fish and seafood. The main dish consists of 30% fish or meat, and the rest is rice and vegetables.
The Japanese spend a minimum of time on cooking, which allows them to preserve the maximum of useful substances. In addition, they almost do not use salt and spices. The taste of Japanese dishes is given by spicy seasonings based on vegetable oils and soy sauce.
The latest developments of Japanese brands allow the use of natural ingredients in cosmetics, practically without the use of preservatives. Extracts from plants, peptides, snail mucin, extracts of pig and horse placenta are actively used.
However, Japanese women cannot be considered fans of natural: they are unlikely to prepare a face mask from fresh melons or cucumbers. Japanese women use “folk” recipes very carefully, because fresh products can contain too many pesticides and harmful substances.
Japanese women do Asahi massage every day — they believe that this is the main ritual that prevents facial aging. Yukuko Tanaka’s technique is very popular in the world today. Women who practice this massage for at least 10 minutes a day get impressive results.
Japanese women even in winter do not go out in the sun without a good sanskrit — this helps them avoid photo-aging. Cosmetics manufacturers pay special attention to the production of high-quality sunscreens – Japanese products with SPF occupy a leading position in the world. Creams, lotions and serums are easy to apply, do not leave stickiness, do not clog pores and have a safe composition.
Proper application of cosmetics
Japanese women love multi-stage care and know how important it is to apply cosmetics correctly. They first distribute each remedy over the palms, after which they “imprint” into the skin with light patting movements. This allows you to increase blood flow to the face and increase the effectiveness of care. Japanese women are never in a hurry and treat their skin as carefully as possible.
Bathing in thermal springs activates the body’s defenses and improves skin regeneration. Japanese women are lucky: there are 27 thousand natural thermal springs (onsen) on the territory of the country.
Ancient Japanese legends promise eternal youth and deliverance from all diseases to those who regularly bathe in thermal water. Therefore, every Japanese woman tries to visit the springs at least twice a year. At home, Japanese women maintain beauty with the help of hot baths with sea salt and aromatic oils.
