1. Camellia oil
Because this oil is extracted from the seeds of the Camellia plant, it’s naturally called Camellia oil.
It’s used as an ingredient in several hair care products due to its moisturizing and conditioning power that promotes softness and luster to hair.
In addition to stimulating growth, it prevents hair loss. Camellia oil also has a restorative action that helps prevent split ends.
2. Rice water
Rice water is perhaps one of the most popular beauty secrets used by Japanese women.
Most of the benefits of rice water come from vitamin B, which promotes cell growth, reduces aging, and stimulates circulation.
These properties make up the perfect recipe for youthful and radiant skin.
To get these benefits, just boil some rice in water, collect the liquid, let it cool and, rub it on your face with a cotton ball. We recommend this treatment be performed daily.
3. Green Tea
Green tea is not only a drink, but an excellent alternative that rejuvenates the skin.
The substances in green tea soothe the skin and help prevent pimples as well as reduce inflammation and leave the skin looking younger for longer.
Due to the flavonoids present in this beverage, it reduces the adverse effects on the skin caused by exposure to the sun’s rays.
Try drinking the tea regularly, and using it from time to time as a facial treatment.
4. Bean sprouts
The mung bean sprout is known by the Japanese as moyashi, and it’s very healthy and nutritious.
Using it regularly contributes to younger looking skin that’s soft and clean.
The best way to take advantage of its benefits is to buy mung bean powder, which can be found in Asian food stores.
Simply mix the powder with plain yogurt or water, then apply it to your face and leave it for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, rinse it off with running water.
5. Mint Leaf
Mint leaves are also part of the beauty routine of many Asian people. Peppermint can be used to soften the appearance of acne scars and stains from sun exposure.
In addition, mint leaves are able to clean the skin and leave it feeling fresh. Just grind some mint leaves and mix them with a little water.
After that, wipe the mixture on your skin and rinse it off with warm water after five minutes.
Curcumin, the pigment present in turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that are excellent for healthy skin.
Regular application of this ingredient on the skin is a great anti-aging treatment, protects against the harmful effects of the sun, and helps fight against oily skin.
In these cases, all you need to do is mix it with a little water, then rub the paste on your skin.
If your skin becomes very yellow after using turmeric, remove it with a little coconut oil or castor oil. Simply rub the oil on your skin to remove any stains.
Finally, another Asian custom is to massage the face daily in order to improve circulation.
It is believed that these massages tone the muscles of the face as well as leave the skin firmer and brighter.
