Common knowledge is such an unreliable thing. Not sure if "unreliable" is the best word to describe it, but it really is, because your common knowledge can be senseless in other places. But it's always good to know what is common in other countries, isn't it? Especially when the "country" is Japan, where women give so much attention to beauty!
- Don't rub your skin with a towel, nor with a cotton pad.
- Moisturise with lotion before applying a moisturiser.
- Always wear SPF, even on a cloudy day or indoor.
- Blow dry your hair with a hair dryer.
If you don't blow dry your hair with a hair dryer only because you are worried it would damage your hair, use a heat protecting spray. Ideally ones with an effective ingredient Erucalactone that seals up the cuticles by the heat. We are aware that the heat damages the hair, but maintaining healthy scalp is much more important as you can cut your hair but your scalp is a part of your body skin, like your face.
- Wash your hair every day or at least every other day.
- Silicone is bad for your hair. Wait, it's not too bad actually.
- Avoid any friction when your hair is wet.
- Apply moisturiser on the butt.
- Leave the top part of your eyebrows as natural as possible.
- Make your eyebrows a little brighter than your hair colour.
- Blot before applying foundation
There are the ones just came up in my head! Let me know what the beauty habits in your country are, on Twitter or Instagram!
P.S. I'm getting many responses saying "I don't agree" or "That's wrong", but there are just common things in Japan and obviously you have different habits in other countries. I am not claiming that you all should follow them, I'm just sharing how Japanese girls take care of ourselves, as Japan is tend to be one step ahead when it comes to beauty.
