In Japan, beauty translates to flawless skin, youth and purification. Hence, Japanese are known to have preserved some of the most natural skin care secrets since ancient times. Originally, a part of the royal beauty treatment, Adzuki beans are one of the hidden skin-exfoliating secrets of Japanese women’s beauty regime. This regime was used as early as the Nara Period (710-794 AD) which became even more popular since the 18th century. Japanese women used the powdered delicacy to cleanse and purify their skin.
