Take a trip to Okinawa – a laid-back, super chill, Hawaii-esque island in the Southern prefecture of Japan, and you will notice older men and women’s flawless and glowing complexion that will put the complexion of younger non-residents of Okinawa to shame. What’s the secret? What’s the mystery behind the healthy and youthful skin of the Okinawans?
Who doesn’t want to look young longer? We try everything within our means to look young, from spending a lot of money on pricey skincare, doing face yoga (yes, that’s a thing) to trying not to frown even when we are fuming with anger. We should not forget though, that to achieve healthy and youthful skin, we should feed our skin with the right nutrients from the inside.

JAPANESE SWEET POTATOES (SATSUMAIMO)
Japanese sweet potatoes help our body produce more hyaluronic acid (HA) (source: What does hyaluronic acid do? It helps our skin to retain moisture and keep our skin supple. When our skin is well hydrated, it helps reduce wrinkles, our skin appears smoother and more youthful. (source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3583886/)
Japanese sweet potato is a great source of vitamin C, popular for its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants can help slow down the effects of aging caused by free radicals from too much exposure to the sun, for example. Antioxidants in vitamin C help lighten age spots and make our skin look more youthful.
Vitamin C plays an important role in forming collagen – an important protein in our body. Collagen is responsible for making our skin elastic, helping repair skin damage and keeping our skin hydrated.
FERMENTED SOYBEAN PASTE, MISO
What exactly is miso? Miso is a thick paste made of fermented soybeans. It’s generally used for cooking; in soups and sauces, or as seasoning. It’s popular for its rich savoury umami flavours. If you haven’t tried it, you should. Miso isn’t only delicious, it is also good for your skin.
Miso is rich in probiotics, enzymes and fiber – 3 important things that can help with digestion. Healthy digestion is important for our skin. You might be surprised to discover that most skin problems such as acne, eczema, dry skin, redness is caused by poor digestion.
Miso contains bioavailable proteins and essential fatty acids. Proteins help with the construction of new tissue and tissue repair, and essential fatty acids are vital for retaining water in our cells, minimising the effects of aging, cellulite and oily skin.
To top that, miso also contains lots of vitamins and minerals. Think of it as feeding our skin with great nutrition from within, giving it the power to stay young. The antioxidants from the vitamins help prevent or reverse the effects of aging such as wrinkles and age spots.
