If you’ve spent any time over in Japan, you know that those stick-on beauty masks are everywhere. They come in all kinds of designs, from panda bears to Hello Kitty. Now, Star Wars fans can get in on the moisturizing goodness too!
Most women aren’t afraid of getting old. No, what they’re actually afraid of is looking old. Fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and fat accumulating in all the wrong places – it doesn’t conjure up a pretty sight, does it?
People are always complaining about a certain feature or body part of theirs that they wish they could change, like their nose, for example. There are few things that plastic surgery can’t fix these days, but I think it might be a good idea to check these Japanese beauty enhancers and facial exercisers before you go under the knife: the Eye Slack Haruka, the Rhythm Slim Chin Exerciser, the Face Slimmer Mouthpiece, and the Smile Lines Face Belt.
The older some people get, the more self-conscious they become. For example, the other day, I bumped into my aunt at the mall. Before I knew it, the conversation had somehow steered on to how her skin was starting to sag and how wrinkly her chin was – both of which were topics that I was not even remotely interested in.
Ladies, how’d you like it if there was a beauty treatment which promised to reduce wrinkles, redness, scars and acne, all without any fancy dermatologists involved. How would you feel if I told you you had to wear a mask that made you look like Jason from Friday the 13th in order to reap such rewards?
My mother can always tell how many hours I slept the previous night based on the size of the bags under my eyes. When deadlines are running tight and things are getting crazy hectic I work, I sometimes pull all-nights, and the second thing to suffer (since the first one would have to be my health) are my looks.
So there I was, looking for something awesome for you guys to look at, when I came upon what is possibly the best named gadget – the Sharp Plasma Cluster Ion Generator. I was hoping for a hill-sized cannon copied from Protoss blueprints, but it turns out it’s a skin care device for women.
Now this is something that a lot of women would like to have in their own homes: Japanese cosmetics company Shiseido installed a digital cosmetic mirror at the Takashimaya department store in Shinjuku that lets customers test make up without actually trying it on, thanks to the magic of augmented reality.
I don’t really know how this works, but my girlfriend and the Web tell me that blasting your face with steam is good for your skin. If you’re a believer, then you should check out Panasonic’s Nano-Care Ion Steamer, which “creates ion steam particles that are extremely small, thereby enabling the moisturizing steam to deeply penetrate the outer layers of a user’s skin.”
Here’s the ultimate gadget for narcissists. This new webcam from Japan’s Thanko features a one-way mirror as it’s main design feature.
The device has a hidden camera behind the mirror that lets you admire your own beautiful mug while you chat with your friends across the Interweb.
