The Best Face Mask
I would say that most people are aware of the importance of a good facial mask, but how many people take the time to actually know what the best face mask is? The short answer is “not too many.” In fact, the only thing that probably surprises most people is that there is such a thing as the best facial mask. But, it is here, and its name is a doozy: Baby Udon Natto Toner.
What is Udon? According to Wikipedia, “Udon means “grilled noodles” in Japanese. When Japanese began to see western cuisines, like ketchup, mayonnaise, and ice cream, they also began to eat sushi (pronounced “sushi”). Japanese say that “french fries” originated from Udon. And they point out that the word for “snack” in Japanese is “tate.”
A face mask is a must-have. As a matter of fact, the Japanese have the most face masks per capita, or per capita consumer of Japanese food, at around four face masks for every one person in the United States. And the Japanese face mask that they eat most often is the Udon Natto Toner.
Udon is a type of noodles that is sometimes known as “hummus.” In Japan, they are made with dried chick peas. Other types of noodles used in Japanese noodles include: Udon, Man-eater, Zen, and Bibim.
Udon is originally made from wheat flour. Although many people think that noodles are simply noodles, they can also be made from rice. And the Japanese have long recognized the nutritional benefits of rice.
But not everybody knows what a face mask is. For many people, the term refers to some sort of warm, slopping, soggy, flat, dry cleanser. That’s a bad definition. But let’s just pretend that it does refer to that.
Udon Natto Toner is basically flavored soup made with soba, which is buckwheat. It has been heated until it gets to a light caramel color. This results in a smooth, gelatinous texture and flavor that cannot be found in regular soup. While there are a lot of soup manufacturers who can claim that their product is an authentic Udon, few can top Udon Natto Toner, even for authenticity alone.
So, the next time you are in the market for a face mask, make sure that you look for something that has Udon as an ingredient. You’ll be glad you did.
