12 habits that help Chinese women stay young


Chinese women have a reputation for knowing the secrets of youth and beauty, and rightfully so: in the East, it can be downright impossible to tell a womans age by her appearance as most ladies look like theyre in their teens or twenties.

So how does the behavior of Chinese women differ from ours and keep them young and fresh for so long? Lets see.

1. Chinese women spend hefty amounts of money on beauty products: up to $300 or more per month. Interestingly, they prefer Korean or Japanese brands to Chinese, and there are plenty of elite (and expensive) European ones.

2. China is traditionally oriented toward long-lasting relationships, and so the Western term of sexy is replaced here with beautiful." Beauty is first and foremost about facial features and, of course, white skin. Chinese women will do almost anything to get a fairer skin shade, from sunscreens to radical full face masks and skin whiteners. The fact that somewhere else people are ready to pay for a suntan is just beyond them.

3. Regarding body culture, Chinese ladies are totally into the worldwide slimming trend. In fact, anyone whos not skinny is considered chubby. Charlize Theron, for instance, would be a voluminous lady in China.

4. Being chubby isnt bad, though, and its even cute. But dont call a Chinese woman "strong" for fear of making an enemy. Being chubby or plump is feminine and cute, while being strong is a male quality and close to an insult for a woman.

5. A girl in China should be sweet and adorable: a permanent little princess. In their understanding, this is achieved by lots of pastel tones (especially pink), sequins, and cute animals on clothes and accessories. And thats at ANY age. Women wear this kind of stuff at 30, 40, 50, and so on.

6. The daily schedule is sacred. The Chinese wake up early, go to bed early, and take a mandatory nap after lunch. The whole of China has their breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the same time. Even when arranging a meeting, they dont say the exact time. Instead, they say after lunch.

7. Every Chinese woman knows which food is good for women" in any given season. Such food is usually one that makes you beautiful and fertile: ginger, black sesame, or jojoba. They also prefer black unrefined sugar (yes, black, not brown).

8. Theyre averse to chocolate and sweets in general. Chinese women prefer salty or spicy snacks and eat lots of vegetables and herbs, which is also good for their figure.

9. They love taking selfies and posting their photos on Chinese social networks. Every Chinese smartphone has a built-in camera filter that automatically corrects all imperfections and makes the eyes bigger and darker. Thats one of the reasons, by the way, why Chinese girls are considered so pretty.

10. Chinese women always cover the top of their bodies. They may wear a miniskirt, and that would be perfectly fine, but even the smallest cut may be considered outrageous. Every self-respecting girl has a "qipao," a traditional closed but seductively tight-fitting dress.

11. The second biggest enemy of Chinese women after the sun is cold. They only drink hot water, and some of them dont eat ice cream...ever. The fear of letting cold inside makes many of the ladies not take a shower a month after giving birth, bathing instead in ginger-infused water.

12. An interesting tradition of Chinese women is called "zuo yue zi" . The mother of a newborn baby stays in bed for a month after giving birth. She never goes out, and she is wrapped in the warmest clothes while in the house. The baby is taken care of either by her mother, her husbands female relatives, or by a special person. The woman is thought to lose tremendous amounts of energy during labor, and she can only recover (and even cure ailments shed had before giving birth) if she takes a months rest.
