It is no secret that the glow of Asian skin has been a conundrum for many over the years, and with good reason! With glamorous celebrities such as Zhang Ziyi and Lucy Liu looking decades younger than they might care to admit, their youthful shine is a thing of beauty and skin care. You may be asking what their secret is: well, the answer may lie in 100% natural ingredients!
Try these 4 natural ingredients to transport yourself to the East and unlock the Asian skin care treatment yourself:
- Goji berry
Almost like a little jewel of nutrients, the goji berry has been a staple in Asia since ancient times. Naturally rich in vitamins A and C, polysaccharides and carotenoids, they offer a rich mix of nutrients to help protect and tighten your skin. With a name like carotenoids, how can it not be beneficial for you!
- Rice water
Yes, it really is how it sounds! Something as simple as rice water can boost your skin health and be easily introduced into your current skin care routine. The flavonoids found in rice water boast anti-ageing properties, whilst the water from brown rice is richer in vitamin B than white rice and essential for vibrant skin. For once, rice doesn’t have to make you feel bloated!
- Aloe vera
Another ingredient dating back to ancient times not only in Asia but also in Europe, the benefits of aloe vera for your skin are endless. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C and D, and mucopolysaccharides, topically applying aloe vera gel will not only nourish and moisturise your skin, but also plump it up. There is a reason why so many people swear by it in the East!
This little bean is used in so many Asian dishes we love, either in miso soups or simply soy sauce, but did you know that there is more to the soybean than just its wonderful taste? Your skin will welcome its rejuvenating qualities with open arms thanks to its high vitamin E and lecithin (a natural lipid) content. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, studies have also shown that its natural phytoestrogens may have anti-ageing properties!
After your journey to the East, why not stop off in Africa and immerse yourself in the enchanting scents of the rich and vibrant landscapes with our 100% natural soybean candles! Awaken your wanderlust and pamper your skin with the warm-scented wax for a luxurious, radiant glow that everyone deserves. We love our skin, and so should you!
