What is its origin?
Skincare in Japan is mostly linked to the history of Geishas, who as professional entertainers painted white faces.

How to build a proper Japanese skincare routine
Step 1 – Double cleanse
Like K-beauty, double cleansing is also highly followed in Japanese skin care routines. So first clear your face with an oil-based cleanser, or micellar water, in order to remove your makeup. The second is nothing but a rinse-off cleanser to cleanse off the excess dirt and dust on your face.
Step 2 -Moisturise
Use a lightweight, non-greasy formula to achieve a healthy-looking glow. If you keep your skin hydrated, it will automatically have a long lasting effect on it.
Step 3 – Use Sunblock
In J beauty, sun protection is taken very seriously. Somake sure to wear sunscreen with an SPF value of 15 or higher each day.
