Japanese Skin Care Trend: What Is Mochi Skin?
What is Mochi Skin, a Japanese skincare trend that has become increasingly popular lately, and how to apply it, step by step!
After the Korean skincare trends, we are now facing a brand new Japanese skincare trend: Mochi Skin! Like Glass Skin and Creamy Skin, Mochi Skin caught our attention the moment it came into our lives and we started to try it immediately. So what is Mochi Skin and how is it applied? If you like to follow skin care trends like us, we will discuss the Mochi Skin trend with all the details in this article.
What is Mochi Skin?
The Mochi Skin trend is a skincare trend inspired by the famous Japanese dessert “Mochi”. Mochi dessert made from rice is usually very flexible and slightly sunk in when pressed with a finger, but then takes its original form right after.
Based on this feature of Mochi called “Bouncy”, the main thing in this Mochi Skin trend is that the skin is well moisturized and plump and has a plump-flexible texture. Just like Mochi, there are a few simple steps you need to follow to make your skin feel plump and supple to instantly recover when you touch it. If you are curious, let’s take you to Mochi Skin steps without making you wait any longer …
How to Apply Mochi Skin?
Step 1: Clean your skin
Skin cleansing is one of the indispensable steps of every skin care routine. A clean skin means a healthier skin. You should also remember that all products you apply to your skin that is free from dirt, excess oil and make-up will be much more effective.
You can use facial cleansing gels to clean your skin in the Mochi Skin trend. Our favorite, L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Detox Gel, with its formula containing 3 pure clay and charcoal, cleanses the skin, provides a detox effect and gives it radiance. As it cleanses the skin well, you can take steps forward with peace of mind.
Step 2: Apply tonic
The tonic step is extremely important to increase the effect of skin care products. Applying tonic after facial cleansing gel helps to purify pores thoroughly. In addition, the effect of moisturizers and serums applied on the tonic increases even more. Our recommendation for this is L’Oréal Paris Precious Flowers Tonic. With the help of ingredients from flowers such as lotus and rose, you can purify your skin with these tonics that cleanse, relax and give a fresh feeling.
Step 3: moisten
The most important step of the Mochi Skin trend is to moisturize the skin well. When it comes to moisture and fullness, the first ingredient that comes to mind is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin to become plump thanks to its moisture retention feature in the lower layers of the skin.
L’Oréal Paris Hyaluron Expert Skin Plump Moisturizing Cream, thanks to the 2 types of hyaluronic acid molecules in its formula, it moisturizes the skin well and makes it plump. High molecular hyaluronic acid moisturizes and smoothes the upper layers of the skin, while micro-molecular hyaluronic acid goes down to the lower layers and makes the skin plump. You can add Hyaluron Expert Night Cream, eye cream and paper mask to your skin care routine together with this cream to achieve a plump and “Mochi” look.
