5 J-Beauty Products For Anti-Aging
First, let me be honest with you, you can’t avoid aging. Everyone has to age physically, but you can look younger if you take good care of your skin. Here are five J-Beauty products you can use to look amazing!
One of the newest and most affordable products Hada Labo was launched in Japan in 2004. This brand is famous for its hyaluronic based products
Hada Labo’s face lotion has been called the holy grail for its ability to transform the skin. The three most important ingredients of this face lotion are the three different types of hyaluronic acids.
The hyaluronic acid’s main function is to attract and hold water to moisturize your skin, to prevent aging, fill thin lines, and create a barrier on your skin.
Many Youtube influencers such as Nadine Baggott love the brand’s products. The best way to use it is after cleaning your face and before applying your sunscreen.
You can try Hada Labo Hyaluronic Acid Lotion. It is perfect to use on your face, neck and around the eyes.
Use a gentle skin cleanser. The gentler the product the better!
Japanese women don’t like to use products with a lot of chemicals that can damage the skin. They prefer products that are low in alcohol and more on the natural side. By using these products you can be sure that the skin remains hydrated as it keeps its natural oils.
Remember, cleansing is essential to have healthy skin as it is the only way to remove bacteria that could clog pores and create breakouts.
The best one we found is Shiseido Senka Perfect Cleansing Foam. Shiseido is one of the most well-known J-Beauty brands that has been available commercially for over 147 years.
Japanese women do everything they can to protect themselves from the sun and UV rays because they want to avoid getting a sunburn.
Remember, that too many UV rays hurt your health.
To protect your skin from harmful UV damage the best product you can choose is The Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence by Kao. It's thin, even UV blocking film that covers the entire body as if it were a second skin, so it feels completely natural and soothing.
The toner should be applied before moisturizing and following your cleanser. This quickly absorbs liquid is used to remove excess dirt, oil, and makeup. Besides, it helps to balance the pH of your skin which prevents acne.
A great product is Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner which contains no fragrances, artificial colors, parabens or dyes. It is a great toner for everyone even for those with sensitive skin.
Aloe vera is a powerful antioxidant that helps combat free radicals. It helps to slow the aging appearance of the skin. Japanese women love to use Aloe vera as it improves collagen production and skin elasticity.
One of our favorite products is Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist. It is beneficial in soothing sunburn, adds moisture and hydration to dry skin, and can also soothe and reduce redness in irritated skin.
This moisture infused facial mist is rich with antioxidants and nutrients and helps rehydrate the skin and ensure that it retains its elasticity and firmness.
