Japanese Face Slimmer & Neck Stretcher: More Weird Beauty Products from Asia
Are faces really wide and necks really short in Japan? Voila, the Japanese "Face Slimmer" and "Neck Stretcher." I suspect that these products are just the tip of the iceberg where attempts to achieve the Japanese beauty ideal are concerned.
For instance, according to Japan Times, there is a native folk belief that "the more sexually active a woman is, the darker her nipples become. Bleach eradicates this evidence."
It would seem that the Japanese beauty aesthetic involves a small (or narrow) face, long neck, and pink nipples.
