There’s something about learning beauty secrets from other cultures that makes our heartbeat quicken, which is why we’re sharing 7 beauty secrets to steal from the far East. We’ve already established that Asia is light years ahead of the U.S. when it comes to skincare technologies and innovations—but what about an area of the world where beauty secrets are passed down through generations, lovingly shared by mothers to their daughters?

There, beauty rituals are more about understanding the importance of ancient, natural-based rituals that have withstood the test of time—because they work.

Below are seven beauty secrets you should definitely steal…

Another tip? She says to keep it in your fridge, to heighten the soothing effect. . . . .
