If you’re looking for some ancient beauty tips that have withstood the test of time, look no further than Japan’s Edo period. This era, which lasted from 1603 to 1868, is known for its luxurious Japanese skincare regimens. Women in this time period took great care of their skin, using natural ingredients and techniques that are still popular today.

In this blog post, we will explore some of the best Japanese skincare secrets from the Edo period and learn how to incorporate them into our own beauty routines!

1. Cleansing

One of the most important aspects of Japanese skincare is cleansing. In the Edo period, women would cleanse their skin with a mixture of rice bran and water. This simple cleanser effectively removes dirt and oil from the skin without stripping away its natural moisture. To make this cleanser at home, simply mix together one part rice bran powder with two parts water. Massage it onto your face in circular motions, then rinse it off with warm water.

2. Exfoliation

Another popular Edo-period skincare technique is exfoliation. Women would use a natural loofah or an abrasive cloth to scrub away dead skin cells and reveal brighter, more radiant skin underneath. If you want to try this at home, wet your face with warm water and gently rub a natural loofah or washcloth over your skin in circular motions. Be sure to avoid the delicate eye area. Rinse off with cool water and pat your skin dry.

3. Makeup

Lastly, the Edo period was also when women began using makeup to enhance their natural beauty. They would often use white lead powder to create a pale, porcelain-like complexion. While we don’t recommend using lead powder today, there are plenty of other ways to achieve a similar look. Simply mix together some foundation or BB cream with a light-reflecting setting powder to create a luminous finish.

So there you have it, some of the best Japanese skincare secrets from the Edo period! These tips are still relevant today and can help you achieve beautiful, healthy skin. So why not give them a try? Your skin will thank you for it!
