The Oldest Korean Anti Aging Secret: The Power of Korean Ginseng
Today I’ll introduce you to the oldest Korean anti-aging secret. Ancient Koreans used to call it “Herb from the Gods”, but nowadays it’s simply known as Korean Ginseng.
Ginseng is a powerful medicinal herb that has been traditionally used in Asia for thousands of years, but did you know that some varieties of the plant have also been recognised as potent anti-aging remedies? In this video I’ll walk you through the history and the properties of this extraordinary anti-aging secret and tell you what factors to consider before purchasing a skincare product that contains Korean Ginseng.
Lastly, I’ll share with you my top 3 Korean anti-aging serums based on Korean Ginseng. I was originally meant to show you 6 serums in this video, but I realised the video was getting too long so in the end I decided to focus only on the top 3 serums. I’ll do a second part next year covering the other 3, so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out!
