It is possible to improve the chances of developing beautiful skin by using gentle skincare techniques regularly. We suggest the following techniques with KOTOHA products:

SKIN CHERISH LAVENDER CLEANSER

For both night and morning application. Start with the hands and face in a dried state.

  1. While wearing makeup, take one spatula-full of cleanser in the palm (less can be used in the morning). Spread the cleanser evenly on your palm (you palms should look white all over).
  2. Dip your fingertips in warm water and blend with cleanser. Then the cleanser becomes smooth. Please be sure to just add water little-by-little.
  3. Spread the cleanser on your face using a circular motion. If the cleanser becomes dry and hard, add a little warm water again to make it smooth. Repeat this process so any remaining dirt and makeup blends with the cleanser.                             Note. Please make sure not apply too much pressure or friction as it cause damage your skin cell.
  4. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE MOIST WATER

As soon as you cleanse your face, take few drops of Moist water and spread on your face. This will prevent your skin drying out after washing.

Take generous amount of Moist water on to cotton, and pat gently and thoroughly on to your every parts of your face and neck until your skin surface feel a little cool sensation.

Warm your skin with palm gently, this will help penetrate the lotion into your skin further.

SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE REJUVENATION SERUM AND BRIGHTENING SERUM

  1. Take 2-3 squirts of the serum in the palm of your hands. Spread it evenly and press gently into your face. Avoid too much motion with your fingers as this will help prevent you from rubbing your skin excessively.
  2. Warm your skin by pressing your palms gently to your face. This step helps the nutrients in the serum penetrate into the skin.

SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE SILK CREAM AND ANTI-AGING CREAM

Take 2-3 squirts of cream into the palm of your hands. As with the serum, spread it evenly then press gently into your face.

Note: When warmed by your hands the cream absorbs more readily into the skin.

SPECIAL CARE

You may like to treat yourself to a ‘lotion and serum pack’ twice a week. To do this you will need a dry sheet pack (available at Muji shop or on Ebay). First, wet the sheet pack with mineral water and squeeze gently. Then, add the Moist Water with three squirts of serum and place on your skin for 5min.

Finish with cream.

TSUBAKI AND ARGAN HAIR SERUM

First, towel dry your hair. Then take a small amount of oil serum and spread across the palm of your hands. Ensure you have spread the serum from the tip to the middle of your hair.

Note: we don’t recommend this is used closer to scalp as it may cause the hair to look greasy in this area.

Finally, dry your hair with a hair dryer.
