No surprise that ginseng has been a popular beauty treatment for so long. It’s packed with an ingredient that can effective in increasing the production of collagen to firming, toning and plumping the skin as well as to diminishing wrinkles and fine lines. You don’t need to wait until 30 to start using ginseng in your skincare routine. Ginseng has phytonutrients, known to stimulate the skin’s metabolism and release it off the free radicals that build up after regular exposure to sunlight and environmental pollution and toxins. Yep, city girl would need this in life.
The best way to get all those benefits is to use it topically. I love ginseng mask from I’m From, a Korean skincare brand. This product formulated with six-year-old 3.97% ginseng extract that can deliver elasticity and hydration to the skin. A great treatment to use three to four times a week and leaves my skin very hydrating afterwards. The gooey texture which like the actual honey, allows me to massage my face for a couple minutes before rinsing after 10-15 minutes.
This mask is great during winter time because of the ginseng properties that warm up your skin during mask-time. You can definitely feel the heat but it is very pleasant. Well, it’s summer in Australia so I keep it solely at night. One thing to mention is the fragrance. This made me ummed before I purchase but I pulled the trigger anyway and it’s something to note about if you have this on your wishlist. I have to say that the fragrance is quite strong and you will able to smell it even after rinsing off. This came in a sturdy glass jar with little spoon retails for 52.41 Aud 120g.
