Stylist / Samgyetang researcher Motoko Waki's beauty habits
While working as a stylist, Mr. Waki ??also produces workshops and holds cooking classes. Why is there a feminine suppleness and a natural shine while saying "I'm crazy about beauty!" !? The hint of beauty was in a healthy diet that I woke up 20 years ago.
Beauty habit # 1: Choose food according to your physical condition!
Summer is the season when foods such as tomatoes and cucumbers that cool the body's heat are delicious. "Cold" is said to be a great enemy for women, but I would like to see something in season! In such a case, I would like to refer to Mr. Waki's simple way of thinking.
"The most important thing is to be fresh and delicious! And what you take by mouth is kept above room temperature as much as possible. However, it is not just about" not cooling ", but when it is hot, extra heat is added. I also need food to cool, and even in the summer, when my body gets cold in the air conditioner, I try to take foods that warm my body together. For example, I add ginger to the vinegared cucumber, which makes it difficult to cool my body. The combination is recommended. "
Beauty habit # 2: Fruit when you want to eat sweets!
Excessive sugar intake can also cause the body to cool, and glycation, which is associated with proteins and deteriorates cells, can accelerate skin aging. What if you want to eat sweets that you know but are hard to save?
"I originally loved sweets, and until I was about 30 years old, I ate as much as I wanted, but after I started to be careful about my food, I understood my constitution and took it according to my physical condition. Nowadays, when you want to eat sweets, you are often satisfied with just a little bit of raw fruits or dried fruits such as jujube, which you always have. I also eat cakes and chocolates! Only ice cream is cold and sweet, so I try not to eat it as much as possible. "
Beauty habit # 3: Know that "coldness is the cause of all illnesses"!
Mr. Waki ??says that leg warmers and neck warmers are indispensable at bedtime even in summer. Samgyetang enthusiasts are enthusiastic about studying medicinal herbs and are conscious of the “Chinese lifestyle”.
"When it gets cold, blood circulation deteriorates, and the complexion and skin condition also deteriorate. I feel that the threshold is high when I say" medicinal food "or" Chinese medicine ", but Kakkonto, which I take at the beginning of a cold, is also a Chinese medicine. Besides not having it, I have a habit of sleeping early, getting a good night's sleep, living a regular life, eating something that is easy to digest, and exercising well, so on the day I drank Kakkonto, I ate porridge and went to bed early. However, Kakkonto only works at the beginning of the day. If you get a fever, it will have the opposite effect, so it is NG. It has the effect of improving all symptoms. It is perfect for getting rid of heat when the inner balance is out of order, when you are about to catch a cold, when your body is weak and lacks energy. "
~ Waki-san's recommended cold prevention ingredients ~
"Ginger and cinnamon are recommended for cold. When the ends of the limbs are cold, the blood flow is blocked, so not only foods that warm the body but also stretching and light exercise are required. Even though the body is cold If only the face is burning, it may be a hot flash due to menopause. Ingredients that not only improve blood circulation but also charge moisture (nuts, white ginger, etc.) and ingredients that support the kidneys of the five organs (black sesame) , Black rice, brown sugar, black beans, etc.) "
