I've been reading about top skincare guru, Chizu Saeki. Who is based in Japan. A very youthful 60+ woman who teaches the art of using your hands and using what skincare products you already have to achieve beautiful skin.
She is known for her simple skincare advice, her own beauty salon that comes with a three year waiting list and many beauty books she has written. Chizu Saeki even released one of her books here in America, "The Japanese Skincare Revolution: How to Have the Most Beautiful Skin of Your Life, At Any Age!".
You can get to know her in this written interview, Chizu Saeki Interview.
One of her most famous skincare techniques is the, "Lotion Mask".
A skincare treatment where you take cotton pads, pull them apart to make them real thin. Dip it into warm water, then press the pad between your palms to get rid of access water. Evenly coat the pad with a non-alcohol toner and place on your face, like a mask.
Here's the How to Video: From Chizu Saeki herself, in English.
