Try Some Japanese Skincare Treatments and Look Younger

If you use the principles of Japanese skincare, as well as the culture’s eating habits, you are likely to live longer and look better. The average life expectancy in Japan is over 80, with many people living well into their hundreds. Diet is believed to be at least partially responsible.

Fish and vegetables are the main dishes at nearly every meal. A noted author and dermatologist has suggested that you can look younger in three days by eating salmon at every meal, along with a variety of fruits and vegetables.

While I would not suggest that salmon should be eaten that often, folks whose diets are rich in fish, vegetables and soybeans have less heart disease. And, studies have shown that a daily fish oil supplement increases the skin’s firmness.

Diet is not the only component of Japanese skincare, however. One of the favorite foods in Japan is also applied directly to the face.

Wakame kelp, a kind of seaweed that is popular at sushi bars and health food restaurants, was used in traditional Asian medicine to treat a variety of skin conditions. It is thought of as a beauty preserver. Now, researchers know why.

As we age, our appearance begins to change because of things that are going on at a molecular level. Skin cell reproduction is decreasing. The free radical/antioxidant balance is thrown off. Levels of an important amino (hyaluronic acid) are lower. It is one of the chief components of the epithelium, the outermost layer of the skin.

All of these molecular changes cause sagging, wrinkling and the other signs of aging. If only there were a way to stop or lessen these changes, we might be able to look a lot younger than we actually are. That’s where the wakame Japanese skincare solution comes in to play.

It has been shown that levels of hyaluronic acid are lower because of an enzyme called Hyaluronidase, which breaks down the amino. When applied to the skin, wakame kelp extract inhibits the activity of Hyaluronidase, so amino levels begin to rise.

Hyaluronic acid plays a number of roles that are vital to the skin’s health. It is responsible for the strength of the skin’s cells, preventing them from being damaged by free radicals. It helps with tissue repair and is necessary to “grow” new cells. It helps protects the cells from infection and lubricates or moisturizes them.

So, as this ancient Japanese skincare treatment increases skin levels of hyaluronic acid, your face starts to look better and better. Those molecular changes, which were going on, start to slow down. The skin becomes firmer, softer and smoother.

It’s not the only ancient skin care secret that has been scientifically evaluated and reintroduced. Jojoba, a native remedy for skin abrasions and injuries, has been shown to reduce scarring and fade stretch marks. Grape seed oil has been shown to repair damage around the eyes.

If you want to really give your appearance a boost, look for a product that combines the Japanese skincare solution with other nourishing creams. Your face would say thanks, if it could.
