How to look younger using Japanese cosmetics

Japan is an amazing country to shop for beauty products and cosmetics as various kinds of skin care and make-up products are sold in a wide price range. Especially, Japanese skin care products are especially renowned all around the world for quality, effectiveness and innovativity. The secret of the beautiful skin of Japanese women could be choosing the right skin care products. Not only high-end branded products are popular, yet various inexpensive beauty brands offer affordable products and they can be easily found at Japanese drugstores. Japanese women never seem to age. With their beauty rituals and anti-aging skin care products, it seems they have found the secret code to looking youthful, forever.

Below you will find some of the beauty secrets of those Japanese women.

Secret # 1: Use a gentle skin cleanser

The gentler the product, the better! Japanese women like to avoid harsh products containing lots of chemicals. Instead, they use products that are low in alcohol and more on the natural side. By using gentler products, the skin remains hydrated. Cleansing is essential to healthy skin because it washes away bacteria that could possibly get into pores and create breakouts. Whether you wear makeup or not, you should always cleanse your skin before bedtime. Finish by applying a serum and a nighttime moisturizer. Using softer products will help your skin retain lots of moisture which in turn naturally minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Secret # 2: Use skin softener instead of toner

There’s nothing like a good skin softener to give your skin an extra layer of moisture! Skin softeners hydrate your skin and infuse it with nutrients. Unlike toners, which tend to dry out the skin, softeners lock in moisture and brighten up the complexion. The overall look is smooth skin that looks plump and juicy! Using it is easy to – Apply a small amount to your face and gently pat the softener until it has fully absorbed into the skin. Follow your beauty routine with a moisturizer.

Secret # 3: Look for products that contain collagen

Collagen products are all the rage in Japan. You can have collagen drinks – which happen to be delicious! – collagen cookies, collagen masks, powder, supplements… Even gloves!This may just be a trend – there isn't any concrete proof showing that adding collagen to your diet works. But if there is one thing Japanese women are good at, it is taking good care of their skin.

Secret # 4: Apply an anti-aging facemask

As you can now see, the foundation of Japanese skin care lies in keeping a high level of moisture to the skin. The more hydrated the skin is, the healthier it looks. Applying a face mask once or twice a month helps boost the moisture level and therefore, give the skin that youthful glow we all dream to have.

Secret # 5: Give your face a massage

While many of us like to munch on popcorn while watching our favorite TV show, Japanese women use that time to stimulate blood flow (which minimizes fine lines and wrinkles) with a face massager. Regular use of a face massager will tone and tighten the skin with its kneading motion. Good ones have multi angular rollers to fit every curve of your face and body. Yes, it can be used for legs, arms and stomach too! To put it simply, you can get a facial and body massage while watching television from the comfort of your own couch. Every single night.
