Best Kept Japanese Beauty Secrets

Japanese beauty regimens often consist of five or more steps morning and night so it’s no surprise that when it comes to skincare, Japanese women are ahead of the curve, launching a number of trends and products that have only recently taken off in the U.S.

Sublime Beauty Phytoceramides ($29.99)

For over a decade, Japanese women have been starting their anti-aging skincare regimens with natural, rice-based supplements containing ceramides, molecules found in the epidermis that maintain moisture and plumpness but diminish with age. Phytoceramides, plant based supplements of ceramides, only recently became FDA-regulated in the United States. They replenish the skin’s supply of ceramides, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for more radiant, youthful skin. Sublime Beauty Phytoceramides are FDA-regulated and made in the USA. Available online via www.sublimebeautyshop.com.

Yu-Be Foaming Polish ($18)

For over 55 years, Yu-Be has been trusted by generations of Japanese families for all their moisturizing and skin care needs but it only recently began gaining popularity in the United States. The Yu-Be Foaming Polish combines fine grains of rice bran and walnut shell powder with bamboo and gentle cleansing agents to create a foamy scrub that washes away dry skin. Extracts of ginger root and ginseng tone and balance skin, while green tea, geranium oil and camphor provide a soothing, refreshing sensation. With a high level of glycerin, skin will retain moisture, making it softer and more supple. Available online via www.sephora.com.
