What is bai zhu? And how can it help my skin?
Bai Zhu is a plant belonging to the sunflower family that’s been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for generations.This ancient herbal system works holistically to address core conditions which affect the individual in multiple ways, versus isolating and treating separate symptoms.
Traditional Chinese Medicine engages the body’s own self-healing capacity to correct underlying issues that lead to visible aging, as well as illness.
This approach is radically different from typical Western medicine.
Whether taken internally or used topically, Bai Zhu balances and regulates internal body functions as a whole system.
Used in this way, Bai Zhu eliminates the conditions that lead to aging including wrinkles, loss of skin firmness, and eye puffiness.
That’s why Robin includes Bai Zhu in her Let There Be Bright Triple-Action Brightening Serum.
What are the benefits of using Bai Zhu topically?
In keeping with Traditional Chinese Medicine practice, the lotion combines several ingredients to create a balanced or tonic effect.
The interaction between the ingredients boosts skin metabolism so waste products are moved out of cells more quickly and more efficiently. The results include stronger capillary circulation for an even, steady glow, better moisture-balance in the skin, and a visible softening of fine lines and wrinkles.
Bai Zhu is a powerful antioxidant that hunts down and neutralizes free radicals.
This ancient herb also prevents and repairs the damage done by UV, and protects skin from the collagen-destroying process known as glycation, which is caused by excess sugars in the skin.
Let There Be Bright addresses out-of-balance pigment in three ways, to fade dark spots and to keep melanin production under control for an even, bright glow.
Lactic acid and concentrated vitamin C in the formula prevent the bursts of pigmentation that darken skin in response to UV exposure, high heat, and spikes in hormone levels.
The combined effect of these ingredients working holistically prevents fine lines and wrinkles from forming, firms the skin, and brightens darkened areas that can make skin look past its prime.
How can using Bai Zhu as a digestive aid help my skin?
Traditional Chinese Medicine identifies pale, sallow skin and a tendency to bruise easily as common indicators of weakened spleen function, the spleen being the organ credited by TCM as the center of Qi (life force) and blood production.
Traditionally, the root of Bai Zhu is eaten raw, fried, or roasted, dried and used as a tea.
Traditional Chinese Medicine advises avoiding raw foods, spicy stuff, and chilled beverages, all of which require a lot of spleen-energy to process.
Smaller portions and chewing each bite slowly and thoroughly are also recommended, along with turning off the television while you eat, so that you can concentrate on your food and digest it better.
From both Eastern and Western perspectives, scattered energy can exhaust tissues and organs, including the skin.
So for your most vibrant, glowing skin, nourish yourself inside and out!
Start with the obvious first: choose Triple-Action Brightening Serum, and radiate good Qi!
