Elle (Canada) - - Beauty - ASAKO MAT­SUI Deputy Ed­i­tor-in-Chief

“We pre­fer a nat­u­ral beauty to an ar­ti­fi­cial one.” NA­TIONAL TREA­SURE Ac­tress Haruka Ayase. “Haruka is beau­ti­ful, grace­ful and gen­er­ous. Bright and flaw­less skin, like she has, is a very im­por­tant beauty goal for us.” EVENING ROU­TINE Makeup re­mover, cleanser, wa­ter lo­tion, serum (Mat­sui uses two ev­ery night—one for bright­en­ing and one for anti-ag­ing), eye cream and face cream. “A lot of women also add a mois­tur­iz­ing sheet mask be­fore their cream.” MAMA SAID Mat­sui says that at some point in their lives, Ja­panese women learn that wa­ter lo­tion— a soft­en­ing treat­ment that in­fuses the skin with nu­tri­ents—is the best way to keep skin beau­ti­ful. SK-II’s Fa­cial Treat­ment Essence is an iconic na­tional prod­uct. TOP TIP “I think the neck and dé­col­leté age eas­ily and ear­lier than the face, so I start my anti-ag­ing rou­tine with my neck.”
