The skincare methods of Asian countries are something to behold and have taken the beauty world by storm as of late—and rightfully so. From their in-depth anti-aging routines to their best-selling products, we want to be first in line for anything and everything Asian beauty. We're convinced the quality of the products, whether age defying, brightening or exfoliating, deliver results quicker than regimens we've done for years.
Recently, model Risa Hirako completely blew our minds with even further proof that Asian beauty is something of unicorn blood that's somehow able to turn back time. The proof is in the photo below. Would you believe that Hirako is actually 45 years old?
Is your jaw still on the floor? We thought so.
We were just as surprised when we came across her flawless Instagram feed—Hirako's skin has most 20-somethings beat! The model's photos are now a stateside sensation (and obsession) once we all realized she doesn't have a wrinkle, pore or blemish in sight.
After scrolling through her selfies, you may have felt tempted to schedule a needle-pricking appointment, but not so fast. Aside from amazing genetics and possible wizardry, Hirako most likely has a skincare routine filled with masks, serums, and moisturizers that thankfully aren't out of reach.
Below are some of the best inexpensive age-reversing products that will turn back the clock on your own complexion.
Pop open this little purple pill to reveal a sheet mask, but not just any sheet mask. This offering works with your body's heat to release the ingredients to restore the skin's youthful appearance.
Infused with egg yolk extract, this cleanser hydrates and purifies the skin for a touchably smooth complexion.
Don't be freaked out by the snail mucus in this mask. Sure, it sounds gross, but it's been used for ages as a highly effective brightening and repairing ingredient for younger-looking skin.
