Best anti-ageing hydrating serum

Readers’ Choice

Ginseng is a popular TCM herb that reportedly boosts one’s energy levels when ingested. When used in skincare products, it is said to have the same effect too.

When skin cells have more energy it means better cell turnover rate, which leads to a more radiant-looking complexion. What’s more, ginseng also has antioxidant properties, which helps protect skin against internal aggressors, like stress and hormonal fluctuations, and external ones like pollutants and UV rays. This makes skin more resilient, which is why ginseng is often used in anti-ageing skincare.

But like many skin-loving ingredients, the ginseng has to penetrate deep into skin for it to work more efficiently.

Sulwhasoo’s Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Serum uses cutting-edge technology, Micro Encapsulation Technology™, to deliver the essence of ginseng into skin more effectively. The ginseng seed oil is extracted from the ginseng seed and enclosed in soft, tiny capsules called Ginsenispheres™.

The bonus: The anti-ageing effect from the ginseng seed oil also helps improve skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines for overall more youthful looking skin.
