While the market is full of skincare products promising glowing and youthful skin, few are satisfied with the variety of beauty products available.

For centuries Japanese women have been admired and envied for their beautiful skin. Skincare aficionados in Japan say that patting on lotions, serums, and creams is the key difference in the technque. Referred to as the “skin patting” approach, the technique encourages people to pat on their skincare products to stimulate blood flow and promote collagen.

Cosmetic dermatologist Francesca Fusco told the Cosmopolitan, “Patting is better than spreading on your skincare.” Validating her claim, she also said that patting is more gentle, as it doesn’t pull your skin like rubbing in lotion would. Fusco further added that patting limits the possibility of messing up the flow of your lymphatic system.

So, the next time you want to get the desired results, substitute rubbing with patting.
