Koko Hayashi, Founder & CEO of Mirai Clinical, recently shared new Japanese beauty tips soon to be introduced to the world with Ines Ligron, Former Director of Miss Universe Japan.
While there are many healthcare/beauty practices which they are sure would be appreciated outside of Japan, the most important centers on Japanese food. “Washoku” — traditional Japanese cuisine — has been designated by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage for its aesthetic beauty and health benefits.
There are many characteristics of Washoku, but the biggest is “utilizing variety of indigenous ingredients that are fresh and brings out ingredient’s characteristics.”
You don’t have to eat these many ingredients at once, but do include a variety of foods in small portions in each meal. More nutrients from more foods in smaller amounts is better for your health because the ingredients (micro nutrients) work together to produce more nutritional benefits…more like taking a multi-vitamin, than a single-nutrient supplement.
