WHAT IS HIBISCUS?

Hibiscus is a genus flowering plant in the Malvaceae family. The genus is vast, with several hundred species found in warm temperate, subtropical, and tropical climates around the world. For generations, the Hibiscus flower and leaves have been used traditionally for decorative and medicinal uses. It has been used to make extracts, drinks, and supplements. Personally, when I think of hibiscus, I think of Agua de Jamaica. A delicious beverage made from the petals of the hibiscus flower, which is quite popular in Mexico. But today, I'm going to share how to make a wonderful face mask using hibiscus powder. 




INGREDIENT BENEFITS:

HIBISCUS: Hibiscus-rich qualities keep skin nourished, soft, and youthful, preventing dry, dull skin. The antioxidants and beta-carotene found in Hibiscus are reasons it has been compared to Botox. Hibiscus contains vitamin C, which is a known complexion enhancer with collagen-boosting properties that help tighten the face. Making it firm for a youthful appearance. Hibiscus' natural surfactants help deep cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Hibiscus contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which help to eliminate dead cells and flaky skin. As well as clear pores.

ROSE: Roses are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce redness and relieve irritation, making it perfect for all skin types due to its calming and healing properties. Roses brighten and tone the skin while also helping to maintain the skin's pH balance and controlling excess oil. Roses are rich in vitamins A and C, both of which can assist with aged skin. Apart from reducing the appearance of wrinkles, these vitamins help to diminish the appearance of age spots on the skin and help with collagen production.

ALOE VERA: Aloe vera contains a variety of antioxidants, including beta-carotene, vitamin C, and E, which can help improve skin firmness. It can also be used to hydrate and soothe the skin. Aloe vera moisturizes the skin without leaving it greasy, making it suitable for all skin types.  It contains anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

RAW HONEY:  Honey is rich in antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties that can help clear up acne breakouts. Honey is a humectant, which means it helps your skin absorb and hold moisture, preventing it from drying out. It can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will be soft, radiant, and shining after using raw honey.

VITAMIN E: Vitamin E is a moisturizing ingredient that functions as a humectant and an emollient, allowing water to be absorbed and trapped in the skin. It is also an antioxidant that helps fight free radical damage. Vitamin E can be used to prevent or treat dry, flaky skin. Vitamin E oil's hydrating properties may make skin appear more youthful and wrinkle-free.

  • 2 tbsp hibiscus powder
  • 1 tbsp rose powder
  • 2-3 tbsp aloe vera gel

HOW TO USE:
