    Tokyo is the place where beauty trends are born, so to celebrate our new Spring '19 collection we dove into Japanese culture to unlock their beauty secrets. Your skin and nails will never be the same again.

    1. Beauty Tips from Tokyo: Massage

       

      No facial or manicure is complete in Tokyo without a massage. The secret is rather than applying lotion on the hands or face with circular motions, you should gently pat it on to stimulate blood flow and help cell rejuvenation, cause lymphatic drainage and cause muscles to tone and firm.

      OPI OPTION:

      Make each visit to your salon memorable by ending it with a massage using our Moisture Whip Massage Cream. It's the perfect balance between slip & absorption, and it contains collagen-building peptides that help keep skin looking young and vibrant.

    2. Beauty Tips from Tokyo: Green Tea

       

      Clinically proven to possess lots of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, Tokyo locals traditionally not only drink cups of green tea, they also apply a concentrate to combat acne. In fact, the Japanese have even created a potent green tea drink, Matcha, from ground green tea leaves. Iced matcha latte anyone?

      OPI OPTION:

      All of our Infinite Shine Primers contain antioxidant-rich lotus flower oil and bamboo extract that give your clients healthy and strong nails.

    3. Beauty Tips from Tokyo: Oil Up

       

      The Japanese aren't afraid of oil, and you shouldn't be either. One of the most popular oils in Tokyo is Camellia Oil and it’s regarded as one of the most famous beauty tricks, helping to fight signs of aging and restore moisture. One of the oldest books in the world, the Tale of Genji, even talks of Japanese court women using Camellia Oil to dress their hair.

      OPI OPTION:

      Our Nail and Cuticle Oil may not contain Camellia Oil, but it's chock full of rich yet lightweight grape seed, sesame, kukui, sunflower and cupuaçu oils that provide the ultimate in moisture. This fast absorbing formula conditions cuticles and makes them strong and soft.
