Their relatively wrinkle-free skins and general youthfulness are coveted by thousands of women across the world.
Believe it or not Chinese women have flawless skins because they tend to follow tons of beauty traditions passed down by Chinese women from generation to generation. These tried and tested beauty traditions will rejuvenate your skin and give you an enviable glow right before you big day! Here are all the things average Chinese women do to preserve their youthfulness:
Green tea is brimming with antioxidants and beneficial nutrients which makes it one of the healthiest drinks in the world. Not only does it help lose weight, increase longevity, reduce the risk of certain cancers but it also helps you look fresh. It keeps your skin well hydrates and turgid hence reducing wrinkles. Alternatively, you can also introduce the wondrous Matcha powder (Japanese Green Tea) in your diet too because Matcha also helps you look younger.
It is an established fact that artificial sugars are harmful to the human body in numerous ways from increasing cardiovascular disorders and a risk of Type 2 Diabetes. So ladies, say goodbye to molten lava cakes and those carb-loaded fudge cakes. A much healthier option to indulge in after a meal is a fruit salad or a fruit oriented dessert to satisfy your sugar cravings. Because you know what they say! Healthy is the new sexy!
Chinese women usually indulge in soya as opposed to meat as a source of protein. Soya is natural or simply plant-based protein which not only helps you fulfill your body’s protein requirements but also helps you eliminate fatty meats from your diet. Although meat is rich in protein, but it also increases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, ladies it’s high time that you started using tofu, miso and other sources of soya in your diet.
Chinese women have an immense amount of faith in rice water as a skin toner. You can make a simple DIY rice water toner by soaking some rice in water for an hour or two until the water turns milky. Then gently apply this to your face with the help of a cotton cloth. You can also use some Camellia oil in order to reduce stretch marks and dark spots on your body.
If you’re even slightly overweight, then you’re prone to tons of diseases. An unhealthy body will ultimately affect your youthfulness a great deal. You should exercise regularly, skip car rides and opt for walks and runs instead. Ignore elevators and take the stairs because these tiny changes will and can make all the difference in the world. A healthy body will help you stay young longer!
If possible, get a face massage or in simple terms a facial at least once a month in order to improve blood circulation in your visage. Improved circulation will ultimately give you that youthful glow you seek! Chinese women specifically use jade rollers in order to increase their blood circulation and consequently look younger.
Well ladies what are waiting for! Take a leaf from the book of an average Chinese woman and preserve your youthfulness while you still can!
