The Japanese Skincare Revolution by Chizu Saeki

Japanese women seem to be always stylish and have beautiful skin. I often wish for that porceline skin myself. Now we can all find out the secrets to their beautiful skin thanks to a new book by Chizu Saeki The Japanese Skincare Revolution How to Have the Most Beautiful Skin of Your Life -At Any Age.

Japan’s top beauty expert and lifelong aesthetician Chizu Saeki reveals some quick and simple skincare techniques from her new book The Japanese Skincare Revolution (Kodansha International, March 2009. $19.95). Available at and

The Japanese Skincare Revolution by Chizu Saeki is the Japanese woman’s skincare bible. Auther and beauty guru Chizu Saeki shares with the world, for the first time, the natural, low-cost techiniques she developed over a career spent in the beauty industry. With it, you’ll learn what today’s Japanese women do to keep their skin looking young and healthy.

Here is an interview with Leading Beauty Expert Chizu Saeki Author of The Japanese Skincare Revolution.

Why did you choose the skincare industry for your profession?
When I was 13 years old, I saw Audrey Hepburn in a film catalog, and I was amazed that such a beautiful person could exist. This is what aroused my interest in beauty. I began imitating her looks, and gradually I realized what a wonderful thing it is to become beautiful. I quit the clerical job I had been working and enrolled in a beauty school to help others achieve beauty.

How are Japanese and American women different in their approaches to skincare?
Japanese women generally want to whiten their skin. When I lived in the U.S., I got the impression that Americans are more interested in hair design and don’t get hung up on details-brown spots, open pores, and such. They look to a more holistic kind of beauty.

Priel Dead Sea Luxuries

I’m very excited to share with you a new luxury line of bath and body I’ve just discovered: Priel Dead Sea Luxuries. It is divine:)

I’m very picky when it comes to body lotions. Some body lotions are heavily scented and don’t hydrate that well. Priel Dead Sea Luxuries Body Lotion is my new top favorite. If you are looking for a super hydrating body lotion that also smells very delicate, check out Priel! You won’t stop applying! And did I mention the Priel body scrubs, total luxury!

When I spoke to Gregg Schwartz form Priel he mentioned the amazing feedback they’ve received from very satisfied customers. One customer thanked Priel for helping him heal his very dry elbows. In fact the Beauty Editor for BeauBeau, Shanghai’s #1 Beauty Magazine, was in NYC last holiday season looking for products to introduce to Asia. She discovered Priel at the Grand Central Holiday Fair, and fell in Love with the product. She has told Gregg that Priel is the best quality Dead Sea product on the market.

The Priel product line includes: body lotions, scrubs, body polishers, shower gel, body mist, hand cream, home fragrances, and soap bars.

In addition to shopping on the official Priel Dead Sea Luxuries online store, Priel is available at Henry Bendel in New York City.

More about Priel Dead Sea Luxuries: Priel (pronounced Pri-El in biblical Hebrew – “the fruit of God”) was inspired by the desire to create a luxury line of bath and body products of unprecedented quality and uncompromising standards. Their products contain the natural wonders of mother earth: pure salts and minerals from the lowest place on earth, the Dead Sea; the finest olive oil from the Galilee Mountains; and the healing plants and budding scents from the Jordan Valley.

Priel prides itself on providing the purest ingredients utilizing the latest aromatherapy trends. They merge the best of both worlds as you get the healing powers of the dead sea with the rejuvenation from the aromatherapy. Their product line contains ingredients such as Shea Butter, Avocado, Cucumber, Ginseng, Orange Peel just to name a few. Their Vitamin A and D rich formula will keep your skin healthy and protected.

Priel Dead Sea Luxuries come in the following scents, which by the way, may favorites are: Lavender Patchouli and Coconut Lime.
