Chinese herbal recipes can soften and moisturize the skin, remove wrinkles, prevent premature aging of the skin, and soothe chapped hands and feet. They can prevent skin dryness and cracking, and make the skin smooth and beautiful like jade. Some recipes can help prevent frostbite and chilblains during winter. Some can also be used for skin spots, acne and red nose syndrome. Some recipes are helpful for healing skin ulcers, anal fissure, skin burning, and skin infections. These recipes are selected and translated from ancient classical Chinese medicine books including Taiping Benevolent Prescriptions (Tai Ping Sheng Hui Fang), Prescriptions for Caring All People (Pu Ji Fang), and Supplement to Prescriptions Worth A Thousand Pieces of Gold (Qian Jin Yi 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.
