Chinese women drink enough water, but tea remains one of the favorite drinks of the people of this country. Experts recommend using oolong, Pu-erh, and red tea with the addition of goji berries, astragalus flowers, and jasmine, which have a remarkable impact on beauty and health. Also, it is important not to add sugar or milk to the drink.

Chinese women eat a lot of seaweed, which speeds up the digestive process and absorbs excess salt in the body. Plus, fiber helps keep you full for longer and is ideal if you're on a diet.

Besides, vitamins and chlorophyll rejuvenate the skin, maintain normal collagen levels and make the skin supple. Seaweed is also rich in protein, thus preventing premature aging of the body.
