Why should you include Hibiscus flower in your beauty routine?

Reduces uneven skin tone

Got an uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, dark spots and other discolourations? It’s time to use hibiscus on your skin! It contains AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) including citric and malic acid that have exfoliating powers which speed up cell turn over, revealing fresh new lighter skin!

Mildest exfoliator

Hibiscus is a rich source of Alpha Hydroxy Acids which are known to be powerful exfoliators in the skin care industry. The AHAs in hibiscus dissolve dead cells and flaky skin on the skin’s surface, revealing fresh new skin underneath!

Has cleansing properties

Hibiscus has natural saponin that cleanses skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Just like it works in cleansing hair, it also acts as a deep cleanser for your pores! It’s also very gentle so it won’t leave your skin feeling sensitive and stiff.

Botox flower

If there’s any flower that has botox properties, it’s hibiscus! It firms and lifts the face, which leaves it looking youthful! 

Rich in antioxidants

Antioxidants are amazing for your skin’s health! Hibiscus is chockfull of antioxidants known as anthocyanocides. These antioxidants are powerful against skin-damaging free radicals that cause premature ageing of the skin. Anthocyanocides also have natural astringent effects that control excess oily skin & tighten large pores. They also have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation!

Best friend for your hair

In Ayurveda, hibiscus is a potent ingredient used in hair growth oils to fasten the growth of new hairs while strengthening existing ones. This is because it’s rich in nutrients such as amino acids that are necessary for producing keratin which makes up the key structure of our hair.
