TRADITIONAL ANTI-AGEING JAPANESE BEAUTY CARE

MADE FROM NATURAL INGREDIENTS

HECHIMA GOURD WATER


The hechima plant produces a large gourd which is dried and then used to make the famous hard luffah sponge which is commonly known in the west for exfoliating the skin while bathing.

But the Japanese beauty secret is to make a skin care water or lotion from the luffah plant. When the gourd is ripe the juice from the roots and stems are siphoned off to make a skin care lotion.

The hechima water has an earthy aroma and is renowned for moisturising and softening rough skin, for skin lightening, anti-perspirant and astringent.

It also has anti inflammatory, anti-allergic bryonolic acid properties.

It is cooling and soothing and is thought to stop sun spots or brown patches on the skin which are caused by the strong sunlight and UV rays in summer.

Therefore it is usually kept in the fridge and patted on the face in summer to avoid a suntan or just to make the skin feel soft and silky.
