Anti-aging is probably one of the most important tasks for healthy beauty. This is true in both modern society and ancient Chinese imperial families. The herbal recipes collected here are classical and secret herbal recipes from imperial palaces in ancient China. Many of the recipes for facial care have anti-wrinkle effects. The recipes can moisturize the skin, and make the skin silky smooth and glow like jade. Some of the recipes can remove dark spots, acne, freckles, and prevent skin diseases. These recipes are selected and translated from ancient classical Chinese medicine books including Imperial Herbal Formulas (Yu Yao Yuan Fang), Taiping Benevolent Prescriptions (Tai Ping Sheng Hui Fang), and Prescriptions for Caring All People (Pu Ji Fang). These recipes have been proven useful for hundreds of years by billions of people. Historical backgrounds of the recipes are introduced. Explanations in terms of Chinese medicine theories are provided for each recipe. Scientific studies of the herbal ingredients in each recipe are reviewed.
