8 Japanese Beauty Secrets

The world is obsessed about how amazing Japanese women’s skin can be! They hear their skin and haircare pretty seriously. Traditional Japanese beauty products are simple and natural, made from things such as rice bran, seaweed, azuki beans and squalane oil and nuka rice bran.

Extensive use of Fermented Rice and Rice Powder Based Products:
Rice powder has a very soft texture which helps to exfoliate the skin well, and also to remove excessive oil from face. It smoothly removes all the dryness and makes skin polished. It act as an anti-acne agent too. It can control oil and help to reduce acne. Rice powder is very effective to tighten up skin pores and to reduce fine lines. It acts as a great moisturizer too. It can brighten up dull, dark skin tone too. Here’s a homemade anti-ageing face pack with rice powder that you can make at home.

Natural grains and mineral clays:

The Japanese women exfoliate the skin with natural grains and clays and also use sea algaeto detoxify the skin. Also,some herbs also form a part of skin skin detoxification.

Food habits:

Fibre rich foods like lean meats and others like leafy greens and fish enhance the beauty of the Japanese skin.


The practice of meditation, especially Zen and Reiki is very popular in Japan. This goes hand in hand with good food habits to get a natural glow on the skin.

Green tea:

Tea like Yomogi-cha and Biwa-cha and Adlay Millet Tea are used for beautifying the skin and fighting naturally against sun damage, age spots, infections, and skin lightening.

Slap the moisturiser:

Japanese women slap the face products on, rather than using fingers for application.Starting from the chin, pat the moisturiser upwards there by stimulating bloodflow

Nightingale Droppings Facial:

Geisha beauties have used it since 1600s and now it is being loved by celebs like Tom Cruise.

Shiro Nuka:

This is a rice bran mask made using the soft inner layer of rice bran.This mask is used every week to lighten blemishes and tone skin. This rice bran mask is rich in Pectin which aids skin cells renewal.

Seaweed hair cleanser:

The seaweed hair cleanser is rich calcium, magnesium and iron and is made of seaweed powder that can be mixed with water to product a gel-like cleanser. This conditions and moisturizes scalp and needless to say is chemical free too.This also helps in hair loss and poor hair growth.

Camellia Oil:

Camellia oil is used as post hair wash conditioner and applied to damp hair to prevent moisture loss.This softens the hair due to the fatty acid present in the oil and coats the hair to protect it from environmental damage.

Wooden combs:

I have been so wanting to get some authentic wooden combs like so. Tsuge wood combs have polished seamless teeth and help to distribute hair’s natural oils with the wooden teeth that pick up the oils off the scalp and re-distribute the oil. Such wooden combs helps hair stay tangle-free and more manageable by damaging them less.

Apart from these tips, a lot of vitamin C and sea veggies are incorporated in the diet.Oriental herbs are used to treat burns and acne and more and more natural ingredients like beans, rice bran and oils are made use of rather than chemical-laden products. Most important, they stay out of the harmful sun rays by using sunscreens.

Meditation and food habits I totally agree… But nightingale droppings… Wat r they… Never heard of them… Dont think i would like to put any sort of droppings on my face… Yuck

    1. Sumera… In India… Wooden combs of brand roots are available in any beauty shop or even grocery and household items shop. The body shop also has good wooden combs and brushes

  5. I love the skin and hair of Japanese and Chinese women. I think most of the credit goes to their diet and ofcourse their genes. But as you explained Neha, they do give utmost importance to their beauty regimen also. What caught my attention in the above post is nightingale droppings!! I can’t put any sort of droppings on my face for the love of my life. *hihi* I will try to get a wooden comb though. *happy dance* Nice post dear *clap* And you know what, Indian women are also largely appreciated for their skin and beauty all over the world. I used to get loads of compliments whereever I go when I was abroad and I was always with bare face, no make up except a little lip color. They love our skin and hair. *announce* *happydance*

  6. I too have the wooden comb from TBS… and its soooo gooooooood… I just love it for the gentleness it imparts on my hair….Wooden combs also avoid frizzy hair…

    Slap the moisturizer is the new in-thing for me too now… I am sure my hubby is going to raise his eyebrows when he sees me doing that…. *hihi* *hihi*

    Eating sea food definitely keeps wrinkles at bay and skin plumpy.. Look at our bengali beauties 🙂
