Advice From Japanese Grandmothers on How to be Beautiful

  • Protect your skin from the sun.
  • Drink pure water, breathe good air, live in a clean house.
  • As you grow older, don’t envy the fresh blossoms of spring.
  • To have clear, smooth skin, care for it diligently by cleaning it completely, protecting it with loofah vine-water, and keeping a relaxed mind.
  • Good skin comes from a clean body, so make sure to eat foods that purify the body.
  • Eat the peels, rinds, and skins of fruits and vegetables.
  • Too much makeup pollutes the skin.
  • If your bad skin is inherited, you can change its condition by eating properly.
  • Sleep at least eight hours a night, and go to bed before eleven.
  • Be in love.
  • Be active.  Get exercise.  Enjoy your life.
  • Don’t sit around worrying.
  • Control your desires.  Don’t always want what you can’t have.  This unsatisfied yearning habit makes a woman ugly.
  • Accept your age and the changes in your beauty.
  • A beautiful old woman is beautiful because her mind and spirit are wise and graceful.
  • At the age of forty, the mind is visible on the face.
  • Practice facial massage every day to prevent wrinkles, lines, and age spots, and to keep the skin fresh and supple.
  • If you are tired or suffering from stress, you must exercise.
  • Eat a wide variety of foods.
  • Don’t complain; don’t be envious; don’t be irritated.  Your health will deteriorate and your skin will look terrible.
  • If your shoulders are tense or stiff, you will have lines and wrinkles on your face.
  • Practice massage.
  • Enjoy lovemaking.  You will have glowing, shiny skin and a relaxed face.
  • Enjoy nature.  Be tranquil and calm.  Eat simple foods.
  • You can tighten your skin by massaging it: face, head, and neck.
  • If you breathe deeply, you’ll become strong and healthy and more attractive.
  • Everybody gets wrinkles, but try to prevent ugly wrinkles by controlling your mind and emotions.  Wrinkles are a reflection of your thoughts and feelings.
  • Clean skin, not makeup, is the secret of beautiful skin.
  • If you just cleanse, nourish, and massage your skin, it will function well and look good.
