Where does the geisha culture survive? Geisha can be found in several cities across Japan , including Tokyo and Kanazawa, but the former capital of Kyoto In Kyoto, young girls move there typically at age 15 to be taught communication and hospitality skills and various traditional Japanese arts.

To cleanse properly, Tsai said geishas focus on two important steps: removing makeup with a cleansing oil, and then exfoliating with a rice powder-based product.

"The geisha, in order to take off their makeup, they have to use a cleansing oil, but it is so good for your skin, as long as you use one that doesn't have mineral oil. You're massaging your skin; oil dissolves oil—a lot of the pigments that we use are actually coated in something that's similar to an oil—so it's the best way to release all of that from your skin without stripping your skin. So that's one. It's like giving yourself a moment and a massage, to disappear and melt the day away," she said.

As for the exfoliation, geishas steer clear of abrasive products for something milder, but just as effective. "Underneath that makeup they have a layer of wax—it's the same wax that they use in their hair—but then the way you have to get that wax off is by exfoliating it. But they never use anything that would pull or tug or scratch the skin. They use rice powder that foams and is enzymatic, so it just disappears off the debris from the skin. So that's the second step that we do. Those two things together, if you do just that—one, it's a beautiful experience and only takes about 30 seconds, and two, the results are bananas."

It's no surprise that Tsai applied what she'd learned directly into her products—her brand sells One Step Camelia Cleansing Oil ($70) and Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder ($94). (Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant is similar.)

Tsai's overall skincare philosophy? "Just cleanse the right way—that's 90 per cent of the work."

And she advised that a good skincare routine doesn't have to be overly complicated, or even 10 steps, even though that's how Koreans generally prefer it.

"Their rituals are only three to four steps—ever. [The double cleanse] is two steps. At night, you take off your makeup, so that's one.
