If there’s one thing we all share in common, it’s that each one of us envies the pore-less perfection that is Japanese skin. Don’t feel too disheartened though if you weren’t born in Japan. Japanese skincare is a well-developed art form that they have perfected over the centuries. Thankfully, your skin isn’t completely dependent on genetics, there’s a fair amount you could do to ensure that your skin is always glowing and healthy. Here are Japan’s best kept secrets on how to keep your skin looking flawless.
1. Cleanse Your Face-Twice
The foundation of Japanese skincare is that it’s not how much money you spend on your skin products, but how much time you invest in it.

The first step is using an oil (traditionally camellia or rice bran, but you could use one that suits your skin best) on your dry face to remove all the sunscreen and makeup properly. The next step is to use a regular face cleanser to fully penetrate your skin and remove any residual dirt. Doing this will ensure your skin is completely free of any grime and can fully absorb products you use later.
