THE HOLY TRINITY OF JAPANESE DIET

Green tea, Okinawa red algae and rice bran form the foundation of the Japanese diet, these superfoods are good news to our body as much as they are to our skin, but when the three combine, that is when the miracle happens: the proprietary Hadasei-3 Bioactive Complex, the potent anti-ageing blend that gives geishas their perfect porcelain skin, with or without makeup.

Let’s dive into these skin loving goodies:

Rice bran:
A Nourishing Essential
In Japan, it is often said that a beautiful woman’s skin is like ‘polished rice’—bright, translucent, smooth and soft. Today we know that rice contains Vitamins E and B, nourishing essential fatty acids, natural antioxidants and proteins.

Green Tea:
A Powerful Protector
Green tea is often called liquid jade in Japan – not just because of its beautiful colour, but for its powerful health benefits. Known to detoxify and prevent signs of premature ageing, green tea has been an indispensable part of the Japanese diet for generations.

Algae:
A Treasure from the Sea
Algae is found in almost every meal in Japan, whether in the form of a crisp sheet for a snack or enjoyed cold in a seaweed salad. It offers natural polysaccharides that benefits both body and skin. Today, we know that algae is proven to enhance the skin’s barrier function, replenish the natural water reservoir and increase its moisture-retention capability.

And that’s where 111Skin stands out in the fashion world with its hydrogel and bio cellulose treatment masks!
