With the huge influx of Korean beauty trends and products taking over the beauty market in recent years, we decided to take stick East and take a look at Japan, and their beauty secrets! The Korean 10 step skincare regimen is a bit intense, however, Japan seem to have a more relaxed beauty regimen which might suit those who don’t have enough hours in their day! What many people don’t realise is that many Japanese women still adhere to the traditional beauty methods of the Geishas. Take a look below at how the Japanese do beauty!  Healthy Foods Japanese people traditionally have a healthy diet that’s rich in omega 3 and vitamins. They eat a lot of oily fish, vegetables like broccoli, and fruit which all work to make your skin more radiant and supple. Rice We’ve talked about using rice water to wash your hair, however, Geishas would wash their faces with boiled-down rice water. It was used to keep their skin fair and bright. Rice water helps even your skin tone and increase your skin’s elasticity, while smoothing it’s texture.  Green Tea Green tea is known to have many health benefits. It’s anti-inflammatory and boast antioxidant properties which can help reduce acne. Green tea develops from the consumption of Matcha. One glass of Matcha contains extremely high levels of antioxidants which is of benefit to your skin and health!   Natural Oils Use mineral free, natural oils like Tsubaki Oil or camellia oil, which is packed with oleic acids that are extremely compatible with our own skin. These oils can be used to gently remove makeup and cleanse your skin. Both Japanese men and women commonly use these oils to moisturise their skin, face, and hair. Additionally, these oils can be used in a bath along with other oil essences from herbs, green teas etc.  Shaving Removing facial hair/fuzz by shaving has been a popular hair removal method for a long time in Japan. Shaving supposedly creates a silky smooth and porcelain texture, and also provides exfoliation of the dead skin cells on the surface on the face.
