Exfoliate and remove dead cells
Too often, we spend too much time and money on tonics and serums to give more vitamins and nourishment to our skin. But we forget how important it is to remove all the dead skin cells and trapped dirt.
These dead cells and dirt not only make your skin look dull but also prevent the nourishment from reaching your healthy skin cells.
If you are wondering what’s the best way to exfoliate, then here’s how:
Face scrubs are common and well-known. You can choose a gentle scrub with creamy texture and superfine grains. Alternatively, you can also use special tools for exfoliation. Warm steam followed by a thorough wash with a cleanser can help remove all the dirt.
These procedures will help remove blackheads, dead skin cells and any dirt trapped.
However, remember to not to exfoliate your skin more than twice a week. Once a week is usually sufficient. You can adjust your exfoliation frequency to how much your skin is exposed to dirt or as per your skin type.
Hydration from deep within
It is known that skin needs a lot of moisture. There are really good quality moisturizers you can apply on your skin. But don’t underestimate the importance of natural hydration that skin gets.
Make sure you drink ample amounts of water throughout the day.
Hydrated skin is healthy and good at taking care of itself. It can very well remove all the toxins and dead cells accumulated in it.
Hydrated skin prevents acne and wrinkles. It ensures you look youthful and healthy!
Give your skin a rest day
If you need rest, your skin needs some rest too. Make sure there’s at least one day every week when you don’t wear makeup. This helps your skin get the much-needed oxygen.
It’s even better if you can go with wearing little to no make up every day. It is in fact possible if your skin is naturally glowing and healthy.
Use the Saho Japanese beauty ritual
Saho beauty ritual is what gives Japanese women silky smooth skin without any trace of marks. Here’s how to to do Saho beauty ritual:
Use two types of cleansers to clean your skin. One should be oil-based, the other should be water-based. Oil-based cleanser helps remove make up any extra oils on your skin.
Follow this with the water-based cleanser.
In the first step, you loosen up your skin’s pores. You can do this by applying a towel dipped in mildly hot water (make sure it’s not too hot). Now your skin is ready to absorb the moisture.
Now that the pores are open, apply a moisturizer as per your skin type. Use gel-based moisturizer if you have oily skin and use cream-based moisturizer if you have dry or normal skin.
Instead of a moisturizer, you can also apply a serum or a tonic as per your needs.
So this is how you achieve porcelain skin the Japanese way!
