Wouldn’t it be wonderful to achieve the “mochi” skin Japanese women have easily and without fuss? Rice-cake skin, or “mochi hada”, refers to plump, soft, smooth and luminous skin, a reference to Japanese mochi desserts that are extraordinarily supple.
Taking care of our skin is important as it impacts how we look and feel about ourselves. Yet many of us still do not readily acknowledge that beauty begins from within, from our diet to our internal dialogue.
While sleep deprivation and hectic work schedules can make it challenging to avoid stressors, sacrificing self-care accelerates the ageing process. Your complexion may soon look haggard if you haven’t been taking care of it. Several factors contribute to its dull, tired appearance, but collagen loss is one of the most significant.
The skin relies heavily on collagen. It makes up 30 per cent of the body’s protein and 70 per cent of the skin’s protein, so it literally holds you together. Beauty-wise, it replenishes elasticity and gives your face that youthful bounce and radiant appearance. However, as it declines, fine lines and dullness set in.
Smooth, supple skin requires more support as collagen production starts to diminish from the mid- to late-20s. Now that Christmas and the year-end festivities are around the corner, it’s the perfect time to prepare your skin to show off its youthfulness and radiance.
Suntory Wellness, the No. 1 health supplement company in Japan*, has researched and developed a formula to help you achieve and maintain beautiful “mochi” skin.
