Do you know why does Chinese women look very young compared to their age? When it comes to skincare, we’re smart enough now to know that we should look to the East for all the latest innovations (see essences, cushion compacts, snail creams,
etc). But sometimes, looking to the past can yield even more solutions than the present. After all, a Chinese empress had poreless porcelain skin thousands of years before serums were invented.
Chinese medicine is largely based on knowing which herbs and roots can treat certain conditions—skincare included. Thus, it should come as no surprise that women in ancient China relied largely on herbs to keep their skin looking radiant.
Many commercial anti-wrinkle creams contain harmful ingredients in small quantities. While they might look like tiny amounts, rubbing them into your skin on a daily basis can often compound the cause of wrinkles rather than reduce them. To achieve youthful skin, women from China know how to use herbs to obtain
flawless skin instead of relying on chemical-loaded face creams.
Now we are going to show you how to make your own natural anti-ageing cream using Chinese herbs! These ingredients can be
bought at any chinese herb store or you can easily buy them online too.
Pearl powder for skin has been in usage in China for thousands of years. Cleopatra, the last Queen of Egypt and Wu Zetian, the only
woman in Chinese history to ever attain the title of Empress, were famed for their use of pearl powder to maintain and achieve their
youthful, beautiful skin.
Modern science has also confirmed what the ancient medics have proven to be true—that pearl powder promotes the regeneration of new skin cells, increases collagen levels that help to firm and smooth the skin and improve the skin’s radiance.
Licorice root has long been used as a skin lightening herb in China. It’s said to be good for reducing hyperpigmentation by evening
out the dark patches. It even lightens and brightens your skin tone! Liquorice root is supposed to work as an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, anti-irritant, skin whitening, and wound healing ingredient when applied topically.
Besides applying cream on our skin, our inner health is very important too. Do you know that your skin is affected by what you
eat? Now we’re going to introduce you this ancient Chinese berry called Goji. Goji herb is often used in traditional Chinese
medicine for skincare as it is known to defend skin against ageing.
Goji berries are the world’s most nutritionally dense fruit on Earth. This super berry is native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet
and Mongolia. Goji berry is known as the world’s most powerful anti-ageing food, thanks to its antioxidants properties which
delays the aging of cells. In Tibet, goji berries are known as the ‘key to eternal youth’.
According to a legend, the Chinese herbalist Li Ching-Yuen was documented by the Government of China as having
lived to 252 years of age. He was born in 1678 and lived to 1930. One of his secrets was eating Goji berries on a daily basis.
You can eat goji berries directly, put them inside your cereal or oatmeal and even drink it as tea.
