Japanese skin care is revered globally for its meticulous approach and premium products, renowned for enhancing the skin’s natural radiance. With over four decades of expertise, one of the most popular Japanese skincare brands FANCL stands at the forefront of Japan’s skincare industry, dedicated to pioneering preservative-free cosmetics.

In this article, we explore our insights as we unveil skincare methodologies customized to age, skin type, and specific concerns, paving the way to exquisite skin.

Defining beautiful skin

When considering “beautiful skin,” the image often evokes a complexion that exudes smoothness, suppleness, and radiance. The desire for skin characterized by smoothness, softness, and proper hydration, free from blemishes or wrinkles, resonates across all age groups.

During younger years, particularly in the teenage and early twenties, skin experiences heightened activity, producing vital substances like collagen and elastin, which contribute to maintaining its firmness and elasticity. However, with aging, this production gradually diminishes.

As the skin cell turnover cycle decelerates, issues such as blemishes, fine lines, sagging, and dryness tend to become more apparent.

To ensure enduringly healthy and radiant skin, it’s essential to prioritize proper skincare routines and lifestyle choices that nurture the production of vital skin components and maintain optimal moisture levels.

Essential skincare steps for beautiful skin

Follow these essential steps for maintaining beautiful skin:


1. Preparation 

2. Cleansing

3. Face washing

4. Booster

5. Toner

6. Lotion

7. Mask

9. Serum

10. Eye Care product

11. Moisturizer

12. Sunscreen

13. Adjusting lifestyle habits

1. Preparation:Warm your face in preparation for skin care

Using a hot towel to open pores before cleansing helps lift dirt from pores. Leave the hot towel on the skin for about three minutes. Avoid using overly warm towels to prevent skin irritation.

2. Cleansing

Cleansing effectively removes makeup, keratin plugs in pores, blackheads, and other oily impurities, leaving the skin thoroughly clean and refreshed.

Selecting the appropriate cleansing agent is crucial. Some cleansers, if too strong, can strip away essential sebum, promoting the skin to overproduce oil. Conversely, low-cleansing power options may necessitate excessive rubbing, potentially causing stress to the skin.

Hence, it is vital to assess cleansers based on your skin condition and makeup intensity. For pores clogged due to excess sebum from dryness, it is recommended to use gel or oil-based cleansers are recommended. They effectively clean dirt from pores while preserving the skin’s moisture barrier.

3. Face washing

Facial cleansing eliminates water-soluble impurities like dust and sebum, which regular cleansers struggle to remove. It also tackles cleansing agents and oil-based debris, leaving the skin refreshed and visibly radiant.

Even if clogged pores are a concern, refrain from scrubbing. Scrubbing can lead to skin dryness and exacerbate aging issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, and increased pore congestion. Instead, opt for a face wash that creates a rich lather when gently massaged onto your face. Start by cleansing the T-zone, where sebum tends to accumulate, and then work your way outwards for a thorough yet gentle cleanse.

Don't spend a long time washing your face
While washing your face is crucial for keeping your skin clean, prolonged washing is not recommended. Excessive washing can strip away moisture from the skin. Aim to wash your face quickly and efficiently to maintain its natural moisture balance.

Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water until no residue remains
Rinse with lukewarm water of approximately 91-97°F to avoid over-rinsing. When rinsing, avoid direct contact with the shower stream, as the water pressure can irritate the skin. Instead, gently scoop lukewarm water with your hands and rinse your face.

Let’s keep your skin clean with double cleansing using makeup remover and facial cleanser.

4. Booster

Applied before lotion, an introductory solution effectively removes excess keratin, softens the skin, and primes it for better absorption of cosmetic ingredients such as lotion, serum, and milky lotion.

The next toner serves a similar purpose, but the introductory solution boasts higher moisturizing properties compared to the toner. It is particularly recommended for individuals with dry skin.

5. Toner

Similar to a booster, toner is applied before lotion to remove dead skill cells and amplify the benefits of beauty ingredients like lotion, essence, and milky lotion. Typically, toners are wiped off with a cotton ball, making them suitable for oily or combination skin types, as they provide less moisture compared to boostes.

6. Lotion

Lotion plays a vital role in moisturizing and hydrating the skin. It should be applied immediately after cleansing. The key is to dispense an appropriate amount of lotion onto the palm of your hand and gently pat it onto the skin using your middle and ring fingers, which exert less pressure.  It's advisable to layer the lotion for extra hydration on areas prone to dryness and ensure even application.

8. Massage

As we age, essential proteins like collagen and elastin, crucial for maintaining skin elasticity, naturally decline which contributes to facial sagging. Facial massage emerges as a potent remedy for addressing sagging skin. However, it is vital to exercise caution during massage, ensuring gentle pressure to avoid excessive strain on the skin.

Prioritizing lymphatic stimulation and circulation enhancement before a facial massage enhances its effectiveness. The lymphatic system aids in waste removal, and improved circulation ensures optimal nutrient delivery to the skin. Addressing blockages in lymphatic flow reduces swelling and combats sagging, resulting in a more rejuvenated complexion.

To stimulate the lymphatic system, try the following techniques:
・Stroke downward with both hands with the back of the neck (nape) to the shoulders.
・Stroke downward from below the ears to the collarbone on both sides.
・Stroke from the center of the collarbone outwards towards the shoulders.
・Lift your arms and massage the armpits.  And so on.

Elevate your skincare routine with an effective massage method designed specifically for sagging eyes. Begin by gently massaging the front of the ear with your fingertips in a light circular motion. Next, stroke downward from under the ear to the collarbone using four fingers (excluding the thumb) to promote lymphatic drainage. Finally, delicately press and massage the pressure points around the eyeballs to stimulate circulation and rejuvenate tired eyes.

9. Serum

Serums, a common term in skincare, are potent products formulated with a rich blend of beauty-enhancing ingredients. They are specifically crafted to enhance your daily skincare regimen, providing targeted treatment for various skin issues including dryness, fine lines, dullness, and loss of firmness.

10. Eye Care

The delicate skin surrounding the eye is exceptionally thin and susceptible to wrinkling as it matures.

1. The skin around the eyes is notably thin, about 1/3 the thickness of the cheeks.
2. With minimal sebaceous glands, this area is prone to dryness.
3. It responds dynamically to facial expressions and blinking, leading to creases over time.
4. High levels of irritation from makeup and friction further exacerbate the formation of wrinkles.

Therefore, for specialized care, leveraging eye creams and masks specifically formulated for the delicate eye area proves highly effective.

When applying eye cream, use gentle pressure with the pad of your ring finger, avoiding harsh rubbing due to the thinness of the skin around the eyes. Additionally, consider gently stretching out wrinkles while applying the cream for optimal results.

11. Moisturizing

Emulsion, rich in oil, acts as a moisture barrier, sealing in the hydration delivered by lotion to prevent evaporation. For best results, warm the milky lotion in the palm of your hand before application. Always adjust the amount of milky lotion used, especially considering the presence of inner dry skin with excess sebum.

12. Sunscreen

Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is essential for maintaining its beauty year-round. Regardless of the weather or season, applying sunscreen daily is crucial to shield your skin from UV damage. Exposure to UV rays increases the risk of blotches, wrinkles, sagging, dryness, and rough skin. Even when indoors, you may still be exposed to small amounts of UV rays, underscoring the importance of wearing sunscreen as part of your daily skincare routine.

When choosing a sunscreen, consider two key criteria: SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and PA (Protection Grade of UVA). SPF measures protection against ultraviolet B (UVB) rays, which can cause blemishes. It ranges from 10 to 100, indicating effectiveness. PA is a countermeasure against ultraviolet A waves, which cause wrinkles and sagging, and is divided into four levels from most effective to least effective: ++++, +++,++, and +. However, it is important to note that as effectiveness increases, so does the potential burden on the skin. Therefore, it is crucial to use sunscreen products according to their intended purpose.

One guideline is "SPF 1, 0+" when spending time indoors or going out for short periods of time. “SPF 30, ++” is suitable for short outings, outdoor sports, and leisure activities lasting a few hours. For extended play, exercise, and marine sports under intense sun exposure, it is advisable to opt for "SPF 50 or higher, ++++" for enhanced protection.

13. Adjusting lifestyle habits

In addition to daily skincare, achieving healthy, glowing, clear, and beautiful skin hinges on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This includes supporting the skin’s natural barrier function and ensuring normal turnover state.

The skin’s barrier function serves as a crucial shield against external aggressors like dryness, UV rays, and friction. Moreover, normalizing the turnover cycle facilitates the efficient removal of excess sebum, dead skin cells, and melanin, reducing the likelihood of blemishes and promoting overall skin health.

Specifically, pay attention to the following seven points for maintaining healthy skin:

1. Review your diet
2. Get into the habit of exercising
3. Stay hydrated
4.Opt for lukewarm bath
5.Prioritize quality sleep
6. Thoroughly protect your skin against UV rays
7. Make daily skincare a non-negotiable part of your routine.

Our skin’s health is deeply influenced by the nutrients we consume through our diet. To maintain beautiful skin, strive for a balanced intake of proteins, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. These nutrients play a crucial role in regulating skin turnover and promoting overall skin health. However, it is important to avoid excessive intake and maintain moderation in your diet.

Incorporating moderate exercise into your daily routine is essential for maintaining beautiful skin. Activities like muscle training and aerobic exercise such as walking and running help increase muscle mass and improve blood circulation. This, in turn, boosts basal metabolism, setting the stage for the skin’s beautification cycle and nurturing radiant, healthy skin.

Hydrating from the inside out is crucial for maintaining healthy, glowing skin. Aim to drink plenty of water, ideally 1 to 1.5 liters per day, to ensure proper hydration and moisturization.

Hot water in baths can exacerbate skin dryness. To prevent dry skin, opt for a lukewarm bath temperature of approximately 100.4-104°F. Additionally, prioritizing a good night’s sleep is essential for achieving beautiful skin. approximately 91-97°F

Differentiating morning and night skincare: What’s the distinction?

imagerepost (5).jpg__PID:1410f842-a23f-429a-b5d9-509139d32e5c

What is the difference between morning and evening skin care?

Morning skin care

The primary goals of morning skincare include:
・Eliminate sweat and sebum residue accumulated overnight
・Provide moisturizing care to shield the skin from external aggressors throughout the day.
・Protect against UV rays

Start your morning skincare routine by cleansing your face. Even during sleep, sweat and sebum are secreted, making it essential to thoroughly wash them off with a facial cleanser. Opt for a foaming cleanser if you are short on time. Pay special attention to areas prone to sebum buildup, like around the nose, to ensure long-lasting makeup. Additionally, the two fundamental steps in skincare are lotion and milky lotion. It is crucial to prioritize meticulous moisturizing to safeguard the skin from dryness and irritation. In morning skincare, the paramount step is applying sunscreen last. To shield against UV damage throughout the day, ensure thorough application of sunscreen to the face, neck and decollete.

Nighttime skin care

The primary goals of nighttime skincare include:
・Removes makeup and sebum stains
・Gently cares for skin damaged during the day

Kickstart your nighttime skincare routine with thorough cleansing to effectively remove makeup and dirt. Following cleansing, indulge in lathering your face with a premium facial cleanser, gently washing away impurities for a radiant complexion. Elevate your nighttime skincare regimen with the active participation of serums, seamlessly adaptable for morning rituals too. Maximize their efficacy by applying serums post-lotion and pre-milky lotion, adhering to the optimal skincare sequence for enhanced results. Select the perfect serum tailored to address your individual skin concerns. Prioritize examining serum ingredients, opting for highly moisturizing elements to combat dryness or potent whitening agents for spot correction and overall luminosity enhancement.

*2 “Whitening" refers to the effect of suppressing melanin production and preventing spots and freckles. The same meaning is used thereafter in the text.

Unlock the secrets to beautiful skin 【By age】

imagerepost (6).jpg__PID:cfc61410-f842-423f-829a-f5d9509139d3

Optimal skin turnover is crucial for achieving and maintaining beautiful skin. As we age, the turnover cycle lengthens, emphasizing the importance of age-appropriate skincare routines. Tailoring your regimen to suit your skin’s changing needs ensures maximum effectiveness and lasting beauty. Next, we will discuss age-specific care and how to choose skincare cosmetics that you should keep in mind to maintain beautiful skin.

Skincare in your 20’s

After the age of 20, the Skin’s turnover cycle gradually decelerates. In our 20s, maintaining beautiful skin requires us to prioritize thorough skincare, including toner and milky lotion application, while also reassessing our face-washing techniques. During our teens, some of us may have used strong cleansers to combat excess oil production. However, as oil secretion typically decreases in our 20s, gentler cleansing methods are advisable to avoid stripping the skin of its natural oils and causing irritation.

In our 20s, our skin can become more susceptible to fluctuations due to imbalances between mind and body, underscoring the need for age-appropriate skincare. It is crucial for us to avoid harsh cleansers and aggressive cleansing methods, such as using nylon towels. Instead, we should opt for a gentle, low-irritant cleanser that produces ample lather to effectively cleanse without stripping the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Skincare in your 30’s

As our skin’s turnover cycle becomes more delicate, fortify its natural defenses with nourishing moisturizers and powerful broad-spectrum sunscreen. Prioritize our skin’s health and resilience with our carefully crafted products, ensuring a luminous complexion that defies the effects of time. Experience the transformative power of our skincare solutions tailored for those facing newfound skin challenges in their 30s. Combat blemishes, dullness, and visible pores, or tackle recurring adult acne head-on with our specialized formulations. Bid farewell to dryness-induced woes by choosing hypoallergenic products and indulging in ample moisturization. Elevate our skincare routine with targeted serums and rejuvenating sheet masks, meticulously designed to address our unique skin concerns and unveil a radiant, revitalized complexion.

Skincare in your 40’s

As individuals enter their 40’s, many encounter common skin issues. To uphold radiant skin through this stage and beyond, it is essential to reassess skincare cosmetics. Transitioning into your 40’s calls for a shift in skincare strategy. Rather than sticking to products from your 20’s and 30’s, prioritize aging care cosmetics renowned for their deeply hydrating properties, fostering supple and radiant skin. Opt for skincare cosmetics thoughtfully crafted without additives like preservatives, disinfectants, and petroleum surfactants, which burden the skin in its 40’s, especially as its barrier function declines. Prioritize products with carefully selected ingredients to nurture and support your skin’s health and vitality.

*The term "anti-aging care" refers to age-appropriate care.

Skincare in your 50’s

Entering your 50’s marks a pivotal moment in your skincare journey, where you may notice that the care routine from your 30’s and 40’s no longer suffices. If you are sensing this shift, it is time to reassess and elevate your skincare regimen to meet the evolving needs of your skin.

Start with the fundamental step of ensuring adequate hydration – it’s the cornerstone of any skincare routine. Upgrade to a richer moisturizer that provides enhanced hydration compared to your previous choice for more effective results. Follow up with a milky lotion to lock in moisture and maintain skin hydration throughout the day, opting for a long-lasting formula for sustained hydration benefits.

In their 50’s individuals commonly encounter skin concerns such as blemishes, sagging, wrinkles, and dullness. Combat these issues effectively by incorporating specialized serums tailored to address each specific problem area.

In addition, enhance the effectiveness of your skincare routine by coordinating products within the same series, such as lotion, essence, and milky lotion. This synergistic approach ensures optimal compatibility and maximizes the benefits of each product, promoting healthier and more radiant skin.

Skincare in your 60’s

In your 60s, addressing a spectrum of skin concerns including sagging, blemishes, wrinkles, and lines becomes paramount. When selecting skincare products, prioritize options that offer comprehensive benefits such as moisturizing, whitening, and rejuvenating properties to effectively target multiple issues.

Consistency is key, so meticulously follow each step of your skincare routine with a firm moisturizer as the foundation. Apply the appropriate amount of product with gentle pressure to avoid stressing the skin, ensuring through application to both sides of the face morning and evening for optimal results.

Skin Care Methods by Skin Problem

imagerepost (14) (1).jpg__PID:a26df4cd-ddae-49d0-8c48-901a4a613389

Skincare for achieving beautiful skin should be tailored not only to age but also to individual skin types. However, the cornerstone of beautiful skin lies in effective moisturizing. It's crucial to prioritize thorough moisturizing care for all skin types, as even oily skin can result from excessive sebum production triggered by insufficient moisture. Additionally, remember to consider key care points and choose skincare cosmetics that cater to your specific skin type for optimal results.

Dry skin

Dry skin lacks both moisture and oil, requiring gentle care to avoid irritation. Harsh cleansers and hot water can strip away essential sebum, exacerbating dryness.

Opt for skincare products free from irritating additives, and cleanse gently with plenty of lather and lukewarm water. Follow with a layer of lotion or milky lotion on dry areas, and finish by gently pressing moisturizing ingredients into the skin for optimal absorption.

Combination Skin

For instance, if your T-zone tends to be shiny while your cheeks are dry, adapting skincare for combination skin is key. Tailor your routine based on each area's needs, using milky lotion for oilier zones and combining it with cream for drier areas. Consider incorporating serums for targeted care where shine, stickiness, or dryness is a concern. Choose skincare products rich in collagen to maintain moisture and elasticity, along with ceramide to enhance moisture retention, for optimal skin health.

Oily Skin

If you struggle with oily skin prone to excessive sebum production, you might shy away from emulsions, fearing they'll exacerbate shine and stickiness. However, this excess sebum could stem from insufficient moisture.

Start with a simple skincare regimen using lotion and milky lotion, then focus on hydrating dry-prone areas with extra lotion or adopting a serum for targeted care. Look for skincare products featuring active ingredients to combat acne and gentle, plant-based moisturizers to maintain skin health without causing irritation.

Cleansing is pivotal in oily skin care and warrants careful consideration. While strong cleansing agents can strip away necessary sebum, leading to increased secretion, focus on removing only excess dirt and sebum. Opt for oil-based cleansers renowned for their ability to effectively remove impurities while preserving essential moisture. Choose hypoallergenic options that maintain skin hydration, ensuring a balanced and healthy complexion.

Skin Care Methods by Skin Problem

If you're already dealing with specific skin concerns, it's essential to craft a targeted skincare plan.

Blemishes

When addressing skin issues like spots caused by UV rays and friction, a comprehensive skincare strategy is essential. Begin by prioritizing UV protection to shield the skin from further damage. Incorporate serums or masks infused with potent whitening active ingredients for targeted and intensive care, helping to diminish the appearance of spots and promote a brighter complexion over time.

Wrinkles

Wrinkles often stem from a combination of factors including loss of skin elasticity, dryness, aging, and UV exposure. Prioritize comprehensive moisturizing care to combat dryness and maintain skin suppleness. To prevent existing wrinkles from deepening, it's crucial to also protect the skin from UV rays. Incorporate effective sun protection measures into your daily routine to safeguard against further damage and preserve youthful skin texture.

Sagging skin

Combat sagging skin by prioritizing serums that promote youthfulness and skin vitality. These specialized formulations aid in replenishing lost collagen and elastin, restoring firmness and elasticity for a more vibrant complexion.

Acne

For skin prone to recurring acne, sensitivity and susceptibility to irritation are heightened due to a weakened barrier function. It's crucial to steer clear of harsh treatments and opt instead for gentle care routines that balance moisture and oil levels effectively.
