We are in the middle of the long rain season in Japan. High humidity and high atmospheric temperature gives us headache.
We used to have four beautiful seasons and we could tell which season we are in now. However, I can say that these beautiful four seasons are not with us anymore because the exact each season becomes fade due to the rapid climate change.
Spring should bloom flowers. Summer should be hot. Fall should give us good appetite. Winter should be cold. I do really miss such seasonal characteristics.
Anyway, we are still in the middle of the long rain season. In the rainy season with high humidity, we should be careful for moisturizing skin. White sesame seeds works well as a moisturizer and can adjust the body balance. Yakuzen suggest to eat white sesame seeds when we lose the power.
In addition to the function as a skin moisturizer, white sesame seeds can be effective for constipation problem. Constipation occurs mostly due to a lack of moisture. Eating a good amount of white sesame seeds can prevent constipation. The bonus point is that many troubles due to aging can be avoided by the power of white sesame seeds.
For example, warm up tofu and sprinkle white sesame seeds on the top of tofu. Tofu also works as a moisturizer. Double moisturizers from tofu and white sesame seeds can give you moisture on your skin and can prevent constipation.
