We all know how obsessed Asians are with skin care. While Indians love their Ayurvedic herbs that work like magic on the skin, the Koreans have given us sheet masks and the Chinese taught us the power of a jade roller. Little wonder then that several Asian women are known for their flawless skin. While Asian skin care products are a big hit all over the world, it is their ingredients that are known to be the real magic potions behind healthy and glowing skin. Curious to know about these Asian ingredients? Here’s a low-down...
Green tea
 

Green tea

For several years now, green tea is known to be a healthy beverage that betters your metabolism. Turns out, it is just as beneficial for your skin care routine since it contains high amounts of antioxidants that give you glowing skin. Like that’s not enough, green tea is also antibacterial—something that keeps the skin armed against acne too!

We suggest making this a two-step skin care process by embracing the Citra Spot-less Fair Face Cream that lightens dark spots in addition to reducing blemishes, thanks to its antioxidant rich ingredient Japanese green tea.

Seaweed
 

Seaweed

An integral part of Asian dishes, seaweed is not only nutritious but also equally known for its skin care benefits, thanks to it being rich in vitamins and minerals. When it comes to acne, seaweed works well due its anti-inflammatory properties. That’s not all, seaweed is also an excellent detoxifier, which means it doubles up as an exfoliant that buffs away dead skin. This means using seaweed helps achieve healthy and spotless skin.

Pearl
 

Pearl

We all love pearls as perfect embellishments for our ensembles. But little do you know that these natural wonders are hugely helpful to treat various skin problems. Well, pearls contain 17 amino acids, minerals and proteins—all of which help stimulate the skin’s collagen that’s crucial for healthy and supple skin.

Almond
 

Almond

You know how your mom always tells you to include almonds in your diet for better memory and attention? Turns out almonds do good to your skin too! Almonds are rich in essential fatty acids that can control the oil secreted by sebaceous glands thereby ensuring that they work well in reducing acne and also treat oily skin. Moreover, almonds contain plenty of Vitamin E, which is known to heal the skin and treat sunburns as well as dark circles. Healthy skin, here we come!

Rice flour
 

Rice flour

It won’t be wrong to say that Asian women owe their porcelain skin to the goodness of rice flour. This is made when rice is cleaned from the husk and washed and dried. It is then blended and made into a powder, which is further used to prepare face masks and packs. Why is this beneficial for your skin care routine, you wonder? Well, rice contains para aminobenzoic acid, which helps in the absorption of Vitamin C—a nutrient crucial to healthy skin.
