Azuki Beans, made into a fine powder, are a great natural solution for those who have acne or blackheads or have fine lines. These beans are rich in antioxidants and contain a natural foaming agent called saponin that makes the pores tight and clean.

Fridge it for some hours, take half a teaspoon of this powder and mix water which will make it like a thick paste. Wet your face, spread it across in a circular manner, let it settle for 2 minutes, and then wash with warm water. Do this two to three times a week and one can see the difference.

Whatever we take inside our body, is directly proportional to how we look outside. A conventional Japanese meal has one soup, rice, fish, and three vegetable items to have a well-balanced diet. All these mixtures have very high vitamin quantity and omega-3 fatty acids which decreases the toxin production inside the body (responsible for skin inflammation and aging). Other things which are rich in keratin and iodine (like kelp and seaweed) are also there in every Japanese diet, both of them make skin healthy, and make nails and hair shinier. As fish is there in their diet, it’s richer in protein and has low fat as compared to red meat and this small diet of mixed vegetables gives them essential minerals and vitamins.
