6 Chinese Models Share Their Hometown Beauty Secrets

Liu Wen: Raw egg whites directly as face masks.  I love to boil the fruits of the Chinese soap-pod locust tree in water and use that as shampoo. You can also boil wormwood plants in water and use it as soap for the skin; it helps reduce irritation and rashes. And whenever I go back to China, I buy a lot of red dates and goji berries. They’re great to put in water, tea, or congee to drink or eat. The result helps your skin stay healthy and glowing.

Sun Fei Fei:  Healthy eating was emphasized because my parents love vegetables so much. We ate light meals prepared with less salt and oil. My mother cooked red date soup for me once a week, with walnuts, brown sugar, goji, longan meat, and red bean. My hometown has a tradition of cooking this soup because it’s really good for skin and health.

Xiao Wen Ju:  [Growing up,] my mom didn’t want me to wear any makeup. She just wanted me to have really good skin. In the summertime, she said, “Don’t go into the sun. You need an umbrella!” And she asked me to go to sleep earlier and eat healthily—fruits, vegetables. It’s all about the inside health. In my hometown, we don’t care about makeup. The only thing we really like are masks to help your skin. I use a clay mask, and also the white of the egg. I do it three times a week.

Shu Pei Qin:  I buy a lot of pu’erh tea to take to New York City. It’s a Chinese tea, produced in the Yunnan province. It cleanses the body.

Luping Wang:  My mom loves cleansing and moisturizing. She taught me to keep my skin clean, eat lots of fruit, and drink plenty of water, which is essential to keep the skin moisturized. Growing up, we had a very healthy diet and regular exercise. My mother and I still like to take long walks when I am home.

Jing Wen: My mother and grandmother would often have to remind me to keep my nails very short and neat. They believed food for cosmetic effect is better than beauty products—for example, some soup with red dates. Being influenced by mom and grandma, I will often drink some good-for-the-skin soup or herbal tea.

2p!Allies and 2p!Axis reaction to s/o getting in a fight!:

2p!America/Allen Jones-
He will most likely cheer you on, or even join in.
“Kick their ass babe!”
2p!Canada/Matthew Williams-
He’ll sit back and watch, unless you start loosing, in which case he’ll step in.
“Go kick their ass babe, I got your flower.” Type of guy.
2p!China/Xiao Wang-
Laugh, laugh, laugh. He think it’s adorable when you’re scrappy.
2p!England/Oliver Kirkland-
He’s horrified. He will pull you away while lecturing about how dangerous it is to get into fights.
2p!France/Francois Bonnefoy-
As long as you’re winning, he’ll just sit back and light up, waiting for it to be over.
2p!Russia/Viktor Braginsky-
*drags you away refusing to even acknowledge your pleas for release*
“I‘m disappointed and disgusted you found violence to be the answer.”
2p!Germany/Lutz Beilschmidt-
Also cheers you on, but the second they get more than a punch in he’s grabbing their collar and slamming them to the ground.
2p!Italy/Luciano Vargas-
He’ll interrupt, showing his impressive knife skill to whoever thought it a wise idea to touch his partner.
2p!Japan/Kuro Honda-
Another looker. But even if you’re loosing he won’t step in. He thinks it’s your battle, and that he’d sully your honor by intruding.  

2p!Allies respond to puns:

2p!America/Allen Jones-
“Hey, Allen?”
“Yeah, Doll?”
“Why are chickens so bad at baseball?” You immediately get a strange look.
“Because they only hit fowl balls.”
“Fucking fowl ball!” He nearly chokes on the laughter as it left him. Allen really likes puns.
2p!Canada/Matthew Williams-
“How did the polar bear stop the movie?” A blank stare.
“No.” He looks away, but he knows he can’t escape.
“…how?” And he his defeated.
“He hit’s the ‘paws‘ button.”
“Aren’t I funny, Mattie?”
“Matthew Williams.”
“Did you really just say that?”
Matthew is not amused.
2p!China/Xiao Wang-
“Yes, darling?”
“Why is sex like a riding a bike?”
“I‘m sorry…?” You caught him a bit off guard, but you most certainly have his interest.
“You can do it by yourself, but it‘s not as much fun.”
“Oh? Well then…let‘s go have some fun then, shall we?”
2p!England/Oliver Kirkland-
“Oliver, hey, Ollie!” You beg for his attention, thinking your plan is full proof.
“Yes, dear?” He beams, not minding your sudden presence.
“Cup your hands.” You order, holding your hands behind your back
“What for Poppet?” He asks, but does the action. You plop an unused teabag in his hands, earning a questioning gaze. Quickly, you kiss his cheek.
“You‘re just my cup of tea.” He instantly goes red, nearly squishing the bag in his hands.
2p!France/Francois Bonnefoy-  
2p!Russia/Viktor Braginsky-
“Hm.” That’s it. That is all.  

(I. Fucking. Love. Puns.)
2p!Allies catching a Homeless!Reader trying to pick their pocket!:

America/Allen Jones-
“Hey!” He felt his wallet being dragged out of his pocket, and caught you by the wrist. Internally you screamed, wondering what he had in store. He gripped your arm tightly, then released. He took in your appearance for a moment, and then reached for his wallet himself.
“H-here, get something to eat, on me.” He removed a few, or rather all, of his large bills and shoved them in your hands.  
Canada/Matthew Williams-
He would likely just turn around when he felt the touch of another person. He’d glare for a few seconds, which was enough to freeze you in place. He’d then take pity on you, and ramble something about it being a shame you were alone. Matthew would walk away, his mercy being that he didn’t snap.  
China/Xiao Wang-
He’ll kindly offer you few dollars, even if you insist otherwise. But being he doesn’t enjoy seeing such a lovely young thing in trouble, he drags you for a meal. He tell you it’s a ’date’. He’s sweet and really wants to help you.
England/Arthur Kirkland-
“Oh my…” Oliver floods with pity. He practically drags you back to his home, where he tells you he’ll fatten you up for sure. You end up getting a job in his bakery.  
France/Francis Bonnefoy-
Likely wouldn’t really care that someone was stealing his wallet. Seriously.
Russia/Ivan Braginsky-
He’d turn around with threatening intent, but would stumble when he saw the ‘intruder’…it changed. He’d likely hand you half of his current amount and nod.
“Times are hard, I understand.”
