Chinese women use camelia oil for their hair and skin as well. It is a perfect natural conditioner that boosts hair growth, but it works great on our skin as well. Use the oil to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars and as a moisturizer to keep your skin looking perfect.
Rice water is the major secret behind the flawless looking skin of Asian women. It works as a great skin toner which can be used every day. Just boil some rice in water, collect the liquid, let it cool down, then soak a cotton ball and apply it on your face.
Green tea contains compounds which can refresh your complexion and make your skin look flawless. It can reduce inflammation in your skin and treat problems such as acne, scars and blemishes. It will also improve its flexibility and delay the aging process.
A mung beans mask is a cheap and easy way to treat almost any skin problem. Get mung bean powder from your local health store, then mix it with yogurt on water and apply it on your face. Leave it to work for at least 15 minutes before rinsing it off with water.
Chinese women have been using a paste made from mint leaves to make their facial skin look as clean and shiny as porcelain. To prepare the paste, crush a handful of the leaves, then rub the paste on your skin.
Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory spice that can help you treat a variety of skin problems and improve its quality. Make a paste with a bit of turmeric paste and water, then massage it into your skin and let it work for 15-20 minutes. Rinse it off with water in the end to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and even out your complexion.
Giving your skin regular massage is the best way of making it look great. A massage will improve the circulation in your skin and promote elimination of toxins. It will also reduce the puffiness in your face and bring back the glow of your skin.
