Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days

Before I go into the specific top herbs that beautify your skin in 30 days, there is an idea I want to express to you that is more important than any 1 herb: This idea is that:

Herbs are essential for one’s health. Period.

Even a most wholesome organic modern western diet will skimp on the herbs, or have herbs in small doses for flavoring only. You can take whatever nutritional path you are on, and just ADD HERBS IN! Herbs should have a BIG section in your food pyramid.

The herbs to ‘go to first’ are the tonic herbs which are adaptogenic herbs that tonify the body, are safe for daily use with no side effects, and can be used ongoingly for a lifetime of cumulative benefits.

Here are the top 8 tonic herbs that when taken internally immediately and cumulatively do wonders for nourishing and beautifying the skin and balancing skin conditions:

Fresh schisandra berries galore!

1. Schisandra Berry

Schisandra Berry (Schisandra chinensis), also Schizandra, the “5-flavor berry,” is the most well-rounded-in-effect herb ever. Those 5 flavors (sour/astringent, sweet, bitter, salty, spicy/pungent,) correspond to a wide range of nutrients and effects on the organs of the body. Schisandra’s dominant sour and astringent flavor boosts liver cleansing and thus skin radiance because they are so closely related. Astringency locks in moisture for the skin and helps your body assimilate all other nutrition consumed with schisandra. A richly-red high antioxidant food and herb to be taken daily for beauty through the ages.**

Horsetail (Equisetum arvenseEquisetum telmateia, and some other species of the Equisetum genus) is one of the highest bio-available-silica substances ever. And, silica is THE BEAUTY AND YOUTH MINERAL. An extract of a young horsetail plant gives the body the free silica it needs to regenerate tissue and make it soft, supple and strong. Silica is one of the main co-factor nutrients required in bone growth. The more organic silica you can get in your body the more your skin will be baby soft.**

Dried goji berries

3. Goji Berry

A handful of delicious red-orange goji berries (Lyceum barbaric and Lycium chinense) or a couple doses of goji berry extract or tea a day is a tradition going back eons to create a youthening effect in the partaker.**  A super-antioxidant, carotenoid-rich, polysaccharide-laden, flavonoid-dense superfood, goji does wonders for your inner and outer body.** It’s not “just a berry.” Try them daily and experience the glow.

Eucommia (Eucommia ulmoides) bark is rich in a rubber/latex substance. An extract of this tissue, joint and skeletal repairing material promotes inner health and beauty and helps youthen the skin. An active constituent in Eucommia, aucubin, has been shown to protect the skin against UV radiation and helps prevent photo-aging.**

Use prepared (not raw) rehmannia (Rehmannia glutinosa) root extract for a massive revitalization of the kidneys and nourishment of the liver and blood. When the kidneys (your body’s battery packs), liver and blood are running strong, guess what happens: the skin beautifies with its full natural color and glow.**

Rehmannia tea is THE most grounding elixir ever – as long as you don’t drink too much at once or it will loosen your stool slightly. 😉

Completely different from the asparagus vegetable, Red Asparagus Root is the ancient Taoist tonic herb used by spiritual seekers for generations to produce an open-hearted feeling of levity above the mundane. It cools, moistens and beautifies the skin and recharges the adrenals and sexual functions.**

Prepared (not raw, just like with rehmannia the raw is not as nourishing) He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) has been used by tens of millions of people in Asia to nurture beautiful colorful hair. It deeply nourishes and cleanses the organs (which always leads to nourishing and cleansing of the skin). It greatly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. SOD is a powerful antioxidant (free radical scavenger), demonstrated to have powerful anti-aging benefits in humans.**


8. Pearl

Hydrolyzed Pearl extract has always been considered the quintessential beauty herb for women (and for men as far as I’m concerned.) It is rich in amino acids and trace minerals which nurture the delicate nuances of fantastic skin. Pearl is a top Chinese beauty herb that uplifts the spirit and is the only form of calcium carbonate one should ever take (other forms are mined chalk).** Although not a vegan product, many plant-based folders love to add in pearl to their lifestyle as a strategic beauty food that calms the mind and fills in nutritional gaps. It can be mixed with coconut oil or an organic high quality body butter to make outstanding homemade edible skincare.


Bonus Herb #9:

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 DaysI like to add this one in as a bonus, but many Russian medicinal mushroom researchers would call this the #1 herb for skin health and whole body vitality: Chaga mushroom sclerotia. Revered for its incredible antioxidant and melanin (think skin pigment and hormone balance) content, this immune strengthening adaptogen has been consumed for eons by humans. In a world of radioactive pollution and radiation from the sun, Chaga is the ultimate protective. Combined with the herbs listed above, we have the ability to repair and tighten up skin. Chaga is great at fighting back at moles, fungal rashes and other mutagenic skin occurrences.**
