The Asian skincare market is one of the most innovative in the world. Indeed for Asian women, skincare is more than just a daily routine - it is a carefully considered way of life, with anti-ageing one of the main concerns. Want to know their secrets for great-looking skin? Here are five of the best anti-ageing mantras from the East.

Herbal tea is your friend

Asian men and women hail green tea as an age-rewinding saviour, so swap your milky beverage for a hydrating herbal alternative.

Soy you say…

Asian diets tend to be high in soy (think tofu and miso) and low in dairy. Whilst this can have a positive effect on mature skin, what is equally interesting is the low incidence of menopausal symptoms in Japanese women. According to Dr Sarah Brewer, this may be a result of soy isoflavones, plant hormones that have a weak oestrogen-like action in the body.

Sensible sun care

Asian women are religious about applying SPF, whatever the season. Protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays which are responsible for premature skin ageing.

Would you like dessert?

Asian desserts tend to be simple – fresh fruit is the way forward. Steer clear of treats laden with artificial sugar.

Heal from within

Firm believers of healing from within, Asian women believe that outer beauty begins from the inside. Try a nutritional supplement to help feed skin from below the surface.
