When I first saw a ginseng root, I immediately thought of Groot from Guardians Of The Galaxy. The resemblance is uncanny, amirite? This peculiar looking plant may seem like it’s super trendy right now, but it’s actually been a staple in traditional Chinese medicine for years. From increasing your energy levels to aiding weight loss, ginseng is the superfood that highly valued by many Asian countries. Lately, this miracle ingredient is also being incorporated in many skincare lines. This herb is not only good for your well being, but it also has a host of skincare benefits:

Hence, you should start using a good eye cream in your early twenties. This one, in particular, is perfect for those of you, who struggle with dark circles and puffy eyes. It’s formulated with the extract of coffee beans, ginseng and magnolia. So if you pulled an all-nighter, this restorative eye cream will depuff and brighten your under eyes instantly.
