When it comes to reversing the signs of aging, we get it, not everyone is going to want to consider the cliché treatment called botox. It can be pricey, and it can also look pretty unnatural. Still, that doesn't take away our desire to keep up that firm, radiant, and youthful-looking skin. But what if we told you nature may have the answer you're looking for?

Loaded with antioxidants

Hibiscus flowers are high in both antioxidants and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), key ingredients in replenishing the skin's youthful appearance. Atop of helping skin retain its suppleness, antioxidants also help protect the skin from free radicals and daily environmental impurities.

Antioxidants can also help to reduce the appearance of pores!

A natural moisturizer

Apart from antioxidants and AHAs, the hibiscus flower also contains mucilage. This is a gel-like, gooey serum that comes from the stem of the blossom. Its purpose is to help keep the skin moisturized and supple.

The ingredient is suitable for all skin types and has a mild fragrance.

Helps exfoliate dead skin cells

The AHAs found in hibiscus also act as natural exfoliators that help wipe away dead skin cells for the surface of the skin, which in turn promote faster cell turnover helping skin to stay plump and supple.

Another benefit of the AHAs is as it exfoliates the epidermis this will gradually improve overall skin tone and skin texture.

Hibiscus' benefits for the skin are so firming and regenerative that it very well may just be the alternative to botox! Even if you're not "maybe" considering botox, hibiscus can be enjoyed by everyone at any stage of skincare! The benefits know no bounds, you can have a healthy, glowing, radiant complexion and who knows? Maybe your journey starts with hibiscus! Check out more of our products with hibiscus at here.
