Do you ever wonder why Japanese have a youthful, fairer, and glowing skin? What beauty regimen they do to always look fresh and young? What daily habits and food they eat to have a fair skin complexion?

Avoiding the sun is pretty much the most popular universal recommendation for preserving your skin. We hear it all the time but a lot of Japanese women adhere to this advice to an extreme. Women in Japan often wear hats, carry UV shielding umbrellas, or even wear a light sweater or long gloves for the arms. They cover up more, even when it’s scorching outside.

3. Hydration is Queen
Hydration is big in Japan and for good reason. Hydrated skin is dewy skin and dewy skin is fresh and youthful.
4. Natural is Better
Most women in Japan wear incredibly natural makeup. Simplify and let the skin breathe.
The Japanese diet has a reputation for being one of the healthiest in the world. It’s based on fish, vegetables, and generally a lot more whole foods, and not to mention the consumption of tea and green tea which already has links to healthier skin.
6. Face Massage
Regular use of a face massager will tone and tighten the skin with its kneading motion.
7. Application Technique
Another Japanese secret for a youthful-looking skin is their application technique of beauty products. Rather than applying the product in upward and circular motion, you should gently pat it on, going upwards from the chin. This stimulates blood flow to help cell rejuvenation, help with lymphatic drainage and most importantly, tone muscle to firm and lessen wrinkles.
8. Taking Collagen Supplements
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It plays a role in strengthening skin, plus may benefit elasticity and hydration. Several studies have shown that collagen peptides or supplements containing collagen may help slow the aging of your skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness.
9. Green Tea
Japanese drink lots of green tea, because it contains a lot antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Some of them even created a concentrated mixture and use typically to avoid acne or breakouts.
