Robin Niu's Beauty Tips [Videos + Summaries] 牛尔老师

Happened to chance upon these videos while I was surfing Asiaone.
Robin Niu (牛尔老师), Taiwanese beauty guru was in town recently to promote KOSE & also host a beauty workshop. I found some of the beauty tips useful and hence, would like to share it on my blog.

For those who don't understand chinese, I will try my best to summarize each video's contents. As my chinese is of C6 standard only, do bear with me :)



Robin Niu spends 3 hours on skincare routine

Robin Niu was mistaken as a 26-28 years old overseas when he was actually 41 years old then. How does he manage to look so young still? He claims to spend 2-3 hours on skincare. Seriously, I can't do that :( Most importantly, use cleanser, moisturizer and sun care.

He swipes the pad over her face first to remove the makeup before patting for 200 times. Robin Niu says there's no ugly women, only lazy women!! (Yes, that's me - Miss Lazy) Anyway, he explains that patting is essential because it will help skincare products which are applied afterwards to be penetrated deep into the skin and moisture will also be retained to keep the skin hydrated.

Patting can lessen the appearance of lines, wrinkles and uplift your face shape too. OMG! I must try this....

Massage your eyebags away

If you use your computer for long hours, the skin below the eyes will become droopy and saggy. As we only have a few muscles around that area, its elasticity will be reduced overtime. Our eyeball presses against the skin as we look down, so eventually eyebags will form. But do not be tempted to do eyebag removal surgery unless the doctor is really qualified to do so, as some patients end up with sunken eyes after that.

The video shows 4 steps on how to massage your eyes. Look up and use your 4th finger to pat gently below the eye area for 200 times. After that, close your lids and pat 50 times. This is called the Piano Finger move.

The next step is called the Scissor Finger movement, as shown in the video. Press down with both fingers seperated and your eye is in the center of the two fingers. Move them towards the side and then press down hard on at the area near your temples and press/massage hard down. There is an acupoint there. Next, push it down to the lymph node around the neck area to flush all water retention over.

The third step is the Acupoint Move, use your middle finger for this. Press your middle finger at the area near the inner corner of the eye and then below the eye, right smack in the middle. Next, move your finger further below the same point, before moving up to the outer corner of the eye. The next acupoint would be the tip of the inner eyebrow, followed by the middle and then the end of your brow.

The last step requires you to rub your palms together 20 times before pressing it against your face. This promotes the stimulation of endorphins.
Seriously, I think Japanese ladies look so good because they spend so much time doing all these to their skin as well.

Robin says that dead skin cells will accumulate and form whiteheads/blackheads if not removed every 2 days. When cleansing your face, pat all over before using the other side of the cotton pad to rub gently off. The deep cleansing oil has a special oil ingredient which is fine enough to penetrate into our pores and loosen our whiteheads/blackheads.

He rubs the deep cleansing oil onto one part of the volunteer's face. This is now really interesting, he uses what looks like small sheets of shrink wrap to cover the top of the areas where he has rubbed the cleansing oil on. Robin Niu says its his secret tip. This should be done daily for 10mins!!

How it works is that our natural temperature will loosen the whiteheads/blackheads. Hence, when we rinse our face, the whiteheads/blackheads will be removed as well! The remaining more stubborn whiteheads/blackheads can be removed with the famous KOSE mask white. Wow, you can actually see the difference on the volunteer's face.
