Chinese women drink enough water, but tea remains one of the favorite drinks of the people of this country.

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.

Acupressure Of The Feet


Chinese women pay special attention to their body care, and one of the essential methods is acupressure. The female beauty spots, San Yin Jiao, are massaged several times a day. These points are paired; they are located inside the tibia on both legs.
