Over the years, both our team and our customers have fallen in love with Japanese skincare – from how the simple ingredients have such amazing effects on the skin to how Japanese skincare is gentle yet elaborate – so we decided it was time to share some skincare secrets during our Japanese Skincare Workshop! Over the last 3 weeks, Ikeda Spa organised our first Japanese Beauty Secrets Workshop.
The workshop was held at Ikeda Spa Prestige @ Clarke Quay Central. Each session was cosy with no more than 20 participants 🙂
- Our lovely spa trainer Diya took participants through the Japanese skincare routine, from double cleansing to the importance of sun protection for the skin. She made recommendations on what natural and traditional Japanese ingredients could be used for each skin care step. The next time you have a tau war pau (red bean bun), remember that when ground to a fine powder, azuki red beans become a fantastic non-abrasive exfoliant! 😆
Diya ended her segment with a little “cooking class”. She taught participants how to make quick, easy and natural DIY face masks using ingredients that Japanese women have sworn by for years!
- Participants got to touch, smell, and experience first hand the natural skincare ingredients explained during the workshop.
In the spirit of sharing, we’d like to teach you how to make one of our favourite face masks: The Rice Bran Face Pack! It only requires water, Chidoriya Rice Bran, and Rice Flour. Mix together till you form a creamy paste, and apply a thick layer to the face.
The lovely people from MTG kicked off the second half of the workshop by introducing the ReFa Carat, a revolutionary facial massager that has taken Japan by storm for its firming and lifting properties.
- By generating low micro-curent which mimics the body’s natural bio-current, ReFa series’ kneading action shapes targeted areas while boosting moisture levels and improving blood circulation.
Of course, no workshop is complete without delicious refreshments and a lucky draw with prizes sponsored by MTG, Luxury City and Ikeda Spa!
