Happy new year!

Let’s look back and see the top Japanese beauty products and beauty trends in 2017!
Everybody knows that what we eat has a huge influence on our skin, hair, nails,…our beauty in general. I like to eat healthy and a lot of vegetables every day, if possible raw to keep all the enzymes, especially since I came back from my fasting retreat! Although there are many amazing restaurants in Tokyo, it’s nice to have a list of extra healthy places serving beautiful salads for example. So I’m going to list my favorites and I’ll try to update each time I can! Green Grill, Shibuya I often go to this restaurant located between Shibuya and Harajuku, for lunch. It’s inside the cocoti building on the 3rd floor….
I just spent 4 days in a fasting retreat located in Nebugawa, next to Odawara, for a body and mind detox. It’s nice to escape the hassle of the city, take things off your mind, enjoy nature and rest your digestive system once in a while! Here is my review on the fasting experience, especially seen from a beauty point of view.
This week from Monday the 6th to Thursday the 9th, the 1st International Premium Beauty and Health Show (PB&HS) was held in Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center.
Checking the best-selling beauty products 2016, it’s interesting how we can see the tendencies of the Japanese people’s lifestyle and economic conditions. The cosmetics matching these new needs are expected to grow in 2017.
Happy New Year 2017 to all of you! I hope you had wonderful celebrations and that you are full of hopes and exciting challenges for this new year! While I was on holiday in France, talking with a friend about LGBT community increasing in visibility and awareness, gender and sexuality, I came to think about the universalization of beauty.
Leaves are changing color and autumn is the perfect time of the year here in Japan to travel and enjoy the beauty of nature. So I went on a quick getaway to Kyoto where I came across one of the Yojiya stores.
I’m sure some of you are shocked reading the title. Yes you read it right: I’m going to introduce you a traditional Japanese beauty service which consists in shaving the face in a barber shop. We have the tradition to get a beauty shave from time to time, where we get the whole face and sometimes even the hairline and the top of the back shaved. We especially do that before important occasions, such as wedding or big parties where you wear nice dresses, but also more randomly just like we go and get a facial treatment service.
Our beauty concierge service By now I’m sure you know what our Beauty Concierge Service is. We connect you to the best hair salons in Tokyo and help you translate your wishes to the hairdresser. So even if you don’t speak Japanese, it’s not a problem!
