Yang Guifei was an imperial concubine of Tang Dynasty who is considered one of the most beautiful women in Chinese history and to this day, is named as one of the ‘four great beauties’ of Chinese culture. When asked how she maintained her youthful complexion and glowing skin, Yang Guifei reportedly attributed her ageless skin to Tremella mushrooms.
