Japan impresses not only with its advanced technologies, architecture and national cuisine, but also with the beauty of the beautiful half of its population. And all because girls from the land of the rising sun strictly follow certain grooming rituals and carefully monitor their diet.

OBOZREVATEL has collected several life hacks that will help you take care of your appearance and health. Read below what habits of the islanders you can safely adopt (to see the photo, scroll to the end).

1. Do an adzuki bean peeling

As far back as the Nara period (710-794), Japanese women used red adzuki beans not only as part of a healthy diet, but also to give their skin a healthy appearance. Crushed into a fine powder or slightly coarse scrub, the beans are a great remedy for those prone to acne or blackheads, as well as those who want to get rid of wrinkles. This product is rich in antioxidants and contains a natural foaming agent that helps to cleanse and tighten pores. It gently removes dirt, dead skin cells and stimulates circulation.


2. Nourish your skin with rice bran

Rice bran has been popular for decades and is widely available in pharmacies. You can also easily prepare a mask from them at home. To do this, boil three tablespoons of rice in a small saucepan for a few minutes or until the water becomes slightly cloudy. Then strain the rice and make sure to save the water (pour it into a separate container). Add one tablespoon of milk to the rice and mix well. Then add one tablespoon of honey. The mixture should be sticky enough to stay on your face. Apply the rice mask to clean, dry skin and let it dry. To remove, use the rice water that you have poured into another container. This will help moisturise the skin, improve blood circulation, and lighten dark spots.


3. Use green tea

Green tea, with its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, is an important part of Japanese beauties' skincare routine. Tea extract is an essential ingredient in lotions, tonics, bath salts, body and face masks. Green tea powder can counteract damage caused by UV rays, reactivate dying skin cells, and reduce inflammation.


4. Pay attention to camellia oil (oriental olive oil)

This flower oil is one of the ancient Japanese beauty secrets. This beauty product has the potential to fight all signs of aging and makes the skin look firmer. It can be applied either dotted on wrinkles to smooth them out, or completely over the entire face to saturate it with useful microelements. Camellia is also recommended for hair care.


5. Avoid the sun

Japanese women try to avoid direct exposure to the sun, as ultraviolet light dries and ages the skin. They use a strong sunscreen.


6. Fall in love with vitamin C

Residents of the island nation make sure they consume enough vitamin C. The Japanese include oranges in their daily diet, which help to deoxidise melanin, resulting in a luminous and even complexion.


7. Buy a wooden comb

In Japan, ladies use handmade wooden combs with small pores that help to evenly distribute natural oils secreted by the scalp glands. This way, the hair is not only moisturised but also strengthened.


Earlier, OBOZREVATEL wrote why the Japanese apply toothpaste to the nail plate. This simple trick will preserve the beauty of your nails. You can also use lemon juice and baking soda. Read more in our article.
