Ginseng (panax ginseng) has been revered in Asia for centuries as a valuable herb for boosting energy levels and memory, healing skin conditions as well as helping with a host of other medical ailments and promoting general wellbeing.
A perennial herb, grown mainly in northern China and Korea, ginseng’s remarkable healing abilities come from its compounds called ginsenosides, which are highly concentrated in its root systems. These compounds have shown numerous health benefits, including anti-oxidative properties that provide its well-known anti-aging effects.
Besides boosting physical and mental energy, researchers have been interested in ginseng’s use for dermatological conditions, such as dermatitis and hair loss. Studies have shown that ginseng actually helps with regenerating skin cells, including promoting recovery from burns and wounds. As a result, it’s used in ointments and creams for skin rashes, such as razor burn, and for soothing and healing sunburned skin.
In parts of Asia, women have turned to this healing plant for relieving dark circles under eyes, easing dryness and reducing fine wrinkles and other signs of aging skin. The ginsenosides work by boosting the skin’s ability to produce firming collagen – the substance that tightens and rejuvenates skin. This is a primary reason why ginseng is often included in the finest moisturizers. It works from deep inside to promote healing and reduce effects that age and the environment take on the skin.
