Today I’d like to talk to you about the amazing effects of Ginseng, a plant well-known in ancient times, that has been used widely for its beneficial effects ever since. It is a woman’s best friend (beside diamonds :)) as it stimulates collagen production, makes your skin firm, smooth and radiant.
Of all medicinal plants, Panax Ginseng, grown on the Changbai mountain, has been used by Asian people for over 2000 years now as the most valuable plant in the world. It’s also known as the Asia Ginseng. It has numerous beneficial effects, but this post is going to be focused on how Ginseng fights wrinkles and who is the winner in this fight. All over the worlds, producers do their best to embed it into hydration products. And the fact that it actually diminishes wrinkles is scientifically proven. How is this explained? Well, it has the capacity of actually stimulating collagen production by the skin. It also brightens the skin, making it more radiant and youthful. It fights pigmentation. And this valuable anti-ageing ingredient is among the ingredients of skin-care products.
And now-my recipes: I recommend that you use the Panax Ginseng vials (here and here). They’re meant for oral use but I’ll tell you how you can apply them externally. Ginseng is also available as syrup, and syrups need to be diluted (1/2 teaspoon of syrup to 1-1.5 tablespoon of water). The recipe: To the contents of 1 bottle add ½ teaspoon of turmeric (Turmeric extract also contributes to skin firmness, elasticity and prevent sun-caused wrinkles). Add 20 drops of Emu oil for better absorption of Ginseng into the skin. Apply the mixture to cleansed skin and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse and proceed to your usual skincare routine. What you need is for the mixture to have the consistency of a paste. Regulate by adding more water if necessary. You’ll be seeing the results in a couple of
weeks as Ginseng is a very effective phytonutrient. If you buy the Ginseng syrup, don’t forget to dilute 1/2 teaspoon of syrup to 1-1.5 tablespoon of water and then add turmeric (1/2 teaspoon) and 20g of Emu oil. By the way, Ginseng stimulates hair growth. It supports hair follicles and prevent hair loss, that’s why I recommend using shampoos that contain Ginseng.
Come to think of it, you can also buy Ginseng skin-care products, but if you have the time, try making the mask at home and you’ll be amazed by its excellent effects.
And one more thing! You can add pearl powder extract to this mixture. It’s marketed in 10g sachets. It’s a great source for amino-acids. Masks containing this powder improve skin firmness and elasticity, stimulate cell production, collagen regeneration, cure acne and skin pigmentation, slow down ageing, diminish wrinkles, scarring and freckles. It also diminishes pores and tightens the skin due to increase in elasticity. Taking pearl powder orally has a calming effect and improves sleep quality. So, add one sachet to your mask and apply to face.
