Tansan Treatment. Sounds familiar? Bet it sure does because it's practically being used in almost every Japanese salon as part of their deep cleansing treatment and did you know that actually you can bring home a bottle of it to DIY your very own Tansan treatment in the comforts of your home?
For those who aren't chemistry students, CO2 is chemical term for Carbon dioxide basically a compound combination of 1 carbon atom and 2 oxygen atoms.
Benefits of CO2 from Onsen
- Promotes healthy blood circulation
- Combats Aging process
- Tighten's pores to prevent them from being exposed to dirt and dust
- Cleanses clogged pores (black head removal)
- Eradicates harmful chemical residue from sunblock & cosmetics
- Regenerates corroded skin cells
According to skin specialists in Japan:- "Carbon dioxide has the ability to eradicate oil from the skin and also tighten pores , hence it is very beneficial for people with skin conditions such as oily skin and atopic dermatitis."
Okay first and foremost you guys would practically think i am bias towards Japanese products just because i adore their country but let me get this straight, bias yes but that doesn't mean it clouds my judgments or reviews :P
Priced only at RM100, this pink canister can survived quite a number of hair & face treatments because you won't need much to cover your entire face or scalp thanks to it's compressed foam nature that would expand upon releasing.
So far i am on my 4th round of treatment, i use it once a week like my scrubs or whenever i have not washed my hair for an extended period and it never fails to leave it feeling refreshed and light afterwards.
I also find this a more gentler option for black head removal as the bubbling foam process helps to extract it without causing any skin irritation from exfoliation, so you can use it more frequently without worrying about constantly stripping a layer of your skin off, plus this is overall more effective since it targets pores from within and minimizes it, expelling the dirt that has nowhere else for it escape to, except the surface.
What kind of feeling to expect from this foam treatment?
A nice bubbling & frizzy sensation, meaning it is working it's magic to cleanse every pore it has landed on, either your scalp or face. It isn't the spicy kind of sensation whic stings, think it more of fizzy ramune (soda lemonade) on your face lol.
How long each session?
10-15 minutes, so sit back and enjoy a magazine or just continue with your normal household work since the texture is thick enough that it doesn't slide off your face.
My face is red after washing of the treatment, is that normal?
Yes it is, CO2 from onsen is helping your body's blood circulation around your face and scalp so it is common to see a "flush" after washing which will eventually fade.
How many times can i use this treatment?
Recommended 1-2 times a week for hair and once every 2 days for face, if you do not have such oily scalp/skin, then once a week is sufficient.
