Everyone who has been to East Asia at least once has noticed the amazing ability Asian women have to stay younger for longer than European women can. Countless numbers of them look much younger than their years — at 40 they might look to be about 20. Some call their youthful looks a gift of nature. Of course, genes play a huge role here but the most important factor is everyday care.
Here are some of their secrets that will help you keep your skin looking gorgeous for many years to come. We at Bright Side guarantee that adding them to your daily beauty regimen will have you looking like you’ve just had a spa treatment.

- Asian women apply hydrophilic oil to the face for four minutes and then use a purifying cream for two minutes. Once this is done, they spend another four minutes rinsing their skin with water.
- To clean your skin very carefully, you can use a special konjac sponge — this is a sponge that has been produced from the roots of the Konjac plant.
- All specialist beauty products should be applied in the following way: first, apply those products with a light texture, then the ones that are heavier, and finally the thickest creams and emulsions.
- Have you ever noticed that Japanese girls often wear dark glasses or carry umbrellas even when it’s not sunny? It’s an effective way to protect the skin against those rays from the Sun that can affect us even on an overcast day.
- For centuries, women in Asia used rice water to enhance the beauty of their skin and hair. Wash your face regularly with rice water to make your skin soft and pliable and improve its color and tone.
- Mint and green tea are permanent elements of Asian women’s arsenals for caring for their skin. These products are contained in various face masks, anti-aging creams, emulsions, oils, and infusions.
- Many women in Asia avoid rubbing cosmetic products directly into their skin. Instead, they apply them in light dabs, which helps strengthen the blood flow to the skin and, in turn, strengthens restorative processes and helps with rejuvenation.

We look a bit younger not just bc of skin, but also our simple features of our face structure, eyes, nose, mouth comparing to the deep define eyes,etc of westerners.
Edit: like Indians are also asians but media don't normally consider them "young for their age" bc their features are deeper like westerns.
Not saying eastern Asians are better/more beautiful. Just saying that it's not just the skin, it's also the features of our face
I am Asian.. and what makes Asian look younger than others are we usually smile and laugh. we also eat more green veggies. also we don't take problem so emotionally. I am turning 30 and I am a mother of two beautiful kids. but most people won't believe me when I said I'm a mom and 30s.
how to get beautiful skin
●Drink water and eat healthy food like fruits and veggies and give up on those fatties food
●Wash your face with water as much as u can in one day to keep the skin clear from dust and dirt
●light makeup or no makeup at all
●wear sunscreen or spf even if it's winter because sun rays can go through clouds
For a product-free best results: Stay out of the sun and wear long sleeves/dresses or pants when you go into it, and carry an umbrella. Don't smoke, drink, or do drugs. Shower every day, do not scrub your face. Keep ragged ends of hair trimmed, (makes you look bad) sleep with soft sheets and wear 100% cotton. Sleep on your back to avoid your face being pulled in the night and to align your spinal column. Try to avoid stress where you can. Consume healthy foods- which means not processed.
Uniquely Alexis You will also get wrinkle if you get too many UV rays. But I do think you need more sunlight to get all of your Vitamin D or else you will get light brown patches instead of a even skintone🤔
Friendly reminder: sunscreen doesn't prevent you from being tanned, it only prevents you from UV rays and being sunburnt; sunblock blocks all the sunlight, preventing you from being tanned, but it also prevents your skin from absorbing vitamin D, which is essential for helping your body to absorb calcium.
Internet Stranger that's y we Asians use sunscreen and wear long sleeves clothes, hat umbrella etc to prevent us from getting tanned. We do sunbathing as well to strengthen our bones but it has to be early sunshine when it is not so harsh( less uv light) usually 8-9 in the morning.
here's some real beauty tips that work way better than any of this:
* don't tan. it tires the skin.
* eat healthy. your skin looks much better if it's healthy. by that i mean, just avoid junk and eat varied stuff. it's not that hard.
* be nice. be kind. be friendly. people will see you positively if they think positively of you.
* habitually smile a little. just a little. a friendly smile. doesn't have to be a happy smile.
* look people in the eyes, a little.
I'm asian but i don't do much of these routines. Just basic things like cleansing and moisturizing.. I think the key to youthful looking skin is wear less make up or never wear at all. Asian women wear less make up .. Western women love heavy make up and that leads to pre-ageing process. One thing more western do, they love sun-bathe and most asian don't, they want to keep their skin tone as fair as possible..not to mention most of asian products are whitening products and sun protection stuff. I'm not being racist here, I'm just telling what I observed.. like Americans want to get tanned while most of the asian want fair skin..🤔🙄
It's absolutely two important reasons, two big different habit. makeup and bad skincare products will make skin worse. In China, it's forbidden to wear makeup in school. They generally start to wear makeup when they start to work. Now I don't wear makeup most of time. I choose skincare product and treat my skin and health very carefully. ultraviolet ray is a big enemy. I don't use sunscreen which I think bad for skin. I use long sleeve clothes, long pants, hat, scarf, gloves, facial glass cover when I go out at day time. I only go out without any protection at day time around sunrise and sunset. and only wear skirt or short sleeve shirt and pants when the sunlight is not strong, such as sunrise and sunset time, rainy day, cloudy day, at night. I carry an ultraviolet ray test card with me and use it to test how strong the ultraviolet ray is and decide what to wear to go outside, when I can go outside without protection or which place is safe enough. Be exposed in sunshine and getting tanned on beach is not what I do but what I avoid. the strong sunlight is horrible for me. Now I never go to beach when the light is strong but go there around sunrise and sunset or when it's dark.
Rubbish.. my wife is Thai and she does look young for her age , but she only covers her skin in the sun & uses spf 50 when going out. All of her friends are the same, look much younger for their age and use just do the same for skin protection.
asian women do NOT do all these things to look younger! i have always been told i look younger than i am. i think it mainly has to do with good genes, a healthy lifestyle and good diet/nutrition. i do not use so many products for my face and i haven't used spf like i should have when i was younger.
it annoys me so much...they only mean the area of china, korea, japan and vietnam...like can they just include india or thailand or the WHOLE asia since good skin is not smth eastern asians invented man....
I'm a 42 year old Asian who gets told constantly that I look way younger than my age and I don't do these routines in depth although I do take care of my skin and wear spf all the time. I have many Asian friends who don't really take care of their skin but still look younger than their age. We just do, it's just the way it is.
suem sueley I too know Asians who don't look younger, but in my opinion, in general, Asians do look younger than their age. I was born and grew up in Asia and lived for a decade in a western country, the majority of Asians, whether they are Asian Asians or Asian who are born in non-Asia countries tend to look younger than their age. It's got little to do with whether their skin is flawless/ not. I don't have perfect skin. AndI know a lot of my Asian friends who smoke and have terrible skin but still get told that they look younger than their age. My point is, Asian women don't necessarily do all the things the video says we do that make us look younger. Have a great day.
suem sueley I never consider myself special just because I get told I look younger than my age constantly. Like I said above, Asians (in general) do look younger naturally. I don't go out of my way to look younger.
Secrets and Nightmares of the Teenage Circumcision Circuit.
In South Africa thousands of boys are initiated into manhood each year, but all too often they lose far more than they gain.
T he sun is drooping in the December sky as cicadas weave ominous melodies into the summer air. Their shrill vibrato is the soundtrack to Azola Nkqinqa’s last day as a boy. It’s the time of year when Nkqinqa, 18, and about 50,000 other South African boys, come to one of the many remote initiation schools in order to learn how to be a man. This school is located in the Eastern Cape province — the country’s poorest. In the Xhosa culture, the transition into manhood is marked by a month of instruction from elders, who teach the teens how to be a father, a husband. The Xhosa boys are also circumcised during this time, and most years these schools make headlines because dozens of the boys die during the process.
Nkqinqa is feeling particularly insecure. It is customary for the patriarch in a family to send a boy off, but Nkqinqa’s father has not been a part of his life for several years, and three of his uncles are dead. So a neighbor named Patrick Dakwa has agreed to take responsibility for him. Dakwa is a community volunteer who spends a lot of time trying to make circumcisions safer, running seminars near the Eastern Cape town of Flagstaff, teaching traditional surgeons how to safely dress wounds. However, since previous initiates are sworn to secrecy about the ritual’s details, as he lies in a hut with the other boys, rabid speculation is Nkqinqa’s only close companion.
The next day, the 13 boys in his cohort consecutively go to see a surgeon. Using a blade about the size of a steak knife, he slices off each of their foreskins. Dakwa and his fellow health volunteers recommend in their seminars that separate, disposable razors be used for the circumcisions so as to eliminate the risk of HIV transmission. But this is an illegal initiation school that shows little regard for regulations. All boys go under the same knife here.
The surgeon wraps Nkqinqa’s penis with a traditional dressing comprised of medicinal leaves. The pain is unremitting and debilitating, but Nkqinqa tries not to let his discomfort show. He doesn’t want to appear weak in front of the other emerging men.
