Masako Mizutani is a Japanese model whose popularity exploded in recent years due to the fact that she looks twenty years younger than she actually is. Even when she isn’t wearing any makeup, she manages to maintain a beautifully youthful look. Most people would not believe that she has a daughter who is already an adult! Mizutani is 48 years old (as of August 2017) and she is the mother of two kids. Despite this, she has managed to take care of her health and beauty so well that she looks a lot younger than she really is. She is often called “Japan’s Lady of Eternal Youth”. She certainly doesn’t look like a middle-aged woman.
So how has she managed to achieve this? Masako Mizutani’s beauty isn’t all makeup and photoshop. She has amazingly maintained what many are calling an “eternally youthful look”. How can you use her skincare and beauty regimes to achieve a similar feat? Here are some of the tips and routines Mizutani has adopted into her daily routine to preserve her looks. Why not try them for yourself?
Vitamin C is an antioxidant which neutralizes free radicals. Free radicals cause aging effects on the skin such as wrinkles, dryness, brown spots, roughness, and fine lines. Vitamin C is also useful in minimizing the appearance of fresh scars. It is an essential ingredient in beauty products to maintain youthful looking skin.
Japanese skincare products tend to be gentler than western ones because Asian skin is often very sensitive. Try a Japanese or South Korean skincare brand with a good level of Vitamin C to help reduce signs of aging. Products containing Vitamin E also help keep your skin soft and supple.
Try to maintain a well-balanced diet by incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables into your meals. Avoid salt, sugar, and carbohydrates, instead opting for lean meat, oily fish, and fresh vegetables into your main meals. Masako Mizutani is said to eat four small meals a day instead of two or three large ones, so prepare your meals in advance and eat them slowly throughout the day if you can. Always drink water or smoothies with your meals.
The older you are, the simpler your makeup should be. Make up that is too heavy can actually reverse the youthful look people are going for. Masako Mizutani recommends lighter and more subtle makeup for older women. Personally, I agree with this because if you cake on the foundation or BB cream onto wrinkles, it will only accentuate the lines. Lighter and natural-looking makeup is the trick.
Experts say that women should drink 2.7 liters (11.4 glasses or 91 ounces) of water a day. Always stay hydrated and healthy by trying to drink this much water every day. A good way to do this is by incorporating a routine – drink a large glass of water as soon as you get up in the morning, be sure to always have a glass or bottle of water on hand, drink water with every meal, and drink plenty before you go to bed. 2.7 liters probably sounds like a lot but it includes all food and beverages you consume over the day. Water is essential for keeping your skin hydrated and making you feel better in general.
Drinking special health drinks such as placenta drinks (not suitable for vegetarians) or Hojun Saji won’t hurt either. There are also various fruit and vegetable mix drinks available at convenience stores and supermarkets you can try to give your body a vitamin boost.
Jogging, doing yoga, or doing light weights can do wonders for your body, staving off sickness and maintaining healthy muscles as well as keeping your body in shape. And if you are exercising your body, why not exercise your face too and keep it looking toned and youthful? Masako Mizutani performs a lymphatic drainage massage on her face, neck, and body. Lymphatic drainage massaging can make you look less puffy and more energized. There are also many Japanese products that can tighten your skin and even make your face appear smaller.
Masako Mizutani spends around five hours taking care of her skin daily, and due to her amazingly youthful appearance, is now even popular abroad! Other tips of hers include regular health tips such as avoiding alcohol and tabacco and making sure you get enough “beauty sleep”. It’s no wonder she looks so amazing. She definitely deserves to look young with that kind of effort! With these five tips, you can make yourself look younger, too.
