No one ever said that skincare routine in summer is easier, on the contrary, it’s more challenging considering the heat, humidity, and the bright sunshine. Not that I’m complaining but maybe we can all learn a few tips from the Japanese Geishas who are known for their enduring wisdom and breathtakingly beautiful, porcelain skin.
The TATCHA’s PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (HK$440) is the first step in the geisha skincare ritual, melting away makeup and impurities for fresh, pure skin. TATCHA Cleansing Oil does not contain mineral oil so it emulsifies completely, leaving skin fresh and pure without double cleansing.
The TATCHA’s LUMINOUS Dewy Skin Mist (HK$ 460) offers a boost of hydration for a naturally glowing finish. TATCHA’s delicate mist can be used day or night, before or after applying makeup. The result is soothing hydration and dewy, silken, replenished-looking skin. Together these three items leave skin pure, petal fresh and luminous all summer long.The handmade TATCHA’s PETAL FRESH Original Aburatorigami Beauty Papers (HK $75) originated with the gold leaf artisans of Kyoto, who used them to transform gold into the whisper-thin leafs that adorn the majestic pavilions of Imperial Japan. The geisha discovered the paper’s incredible ability to wick away excess oil, making it one of their most prized secrets for keeping her makeup petal fresh while wearing heavy makeup and several layers of kimono.
As a fan of TATCHA myself, I also highly recommend their POLISHED Classic Rice Enzyme Powder which gently exfoliate your skin while cleansing it and brings you the brightest complexion as result. Moreover, the BALANCED Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer contains Japanese wild rose and 23k gold dust which is a lightweight and hydrating moisturizer especially for warmer season.
