Layering is the traditional ritual from Japan. The quest for perfect skin is ubiquitous in Asia where the skin must be smooth, plump, radiant with health. This is the famous mochi skin, in reference to the Japanese white rice cake.

In Asian countries, beauty is synonymous with purity. The skin must be clear, luminous, soft and velvety. Over the centuries, women have adopted gestures and techniques that allow them to sublimate and have an irreproachable complexion. For this, she uses several beauty products. But that's not all. They are also followers of layering, a beauty ritual extremely common in Asia, but still little known in France..

It is a ritual in 6 stages of care that is transmitted from generation to generation in Japan.

It consists in superimposing several products in a very precise order so that each new gesture neutralizes the disadvantage of the previous one and potentiates the benefits.  

Aline Foulet, founder of the Akane brand, shares her layering routine, 100% organic, made in France.

"I have been doing layering for a little over 2 years and I could not do without it. Soon my skin was brighter, more homogeneous, more plump. I like the idea of ​​this routine developed with organic care, without petrochemical ingredients. It is also a moment to oneself which one quickly becomes hooked "

It is therefore a question of taking your time to look after your skin while favoring natural cosmetics. With this traditional Japanese method, one offers a pure moment of well-being. And to succeed in this care, it is important to choose the right products. Indeed, we can not apply any cream. They must also be used in the right order to take full advantage of their benefits.

What products to use?

Above all, know that they must respect the skin of your face. Hence the advantage of opting for organic cosmetics, which do not attack your skin and do not contain harmful substances.

At Akane, we recommend several references from our ranges, which are made with natural ingredients and active ingredients. There is the cleansing and purifying oil, a soap or cleansing gel, a lotion, an eye contour, a serum and finally, a day cream. In fact, we start by cleaning the skin, remove impurities and hydrate to the maximum. It is therefore a make-up removal in depth.

In Japan, women perform these actions daily. But if you do not have the time or the desire to do it every day, it does not matter at all. You can adopt Japanese layering once a week for example, or on weekends when you have more time for you. This should not become a constraint but remain a pampering moment of well-being.
