Hibiscus Honey mask benefits
The beauty of the hibiscus flower is unquestionable. Touching its soft petals it’s like touching the baby’s face. But is there any way to actually make our skin as soft as this flower? The truth is, there is, and we are eager to tell all about it!
What are the benefits of Hibiscus?
Hibiscus is a natural source of Alpha-Hydroxy acids, commonly known as AHAs. If you enjoy buying cosmetics, you’ve probably seen some products that use this acid. AHAs are pretty helpful as they stimulate the skin to produce collagen. When our body lacks collagen, the fine lines start to deepen as the skin loses elasticity, so boosting the collagen level is a very useful tool in fighting the signs of aging. No wonder, hibiscus is often called “Botox plant”!
Hibiscus is also rich in mucilage -the substance that helps to hydrate and soothe sensitive and dry skin. The high mucilage content affects the skin’s ability to hold the water molecules, which is a key factor in keeping your skin moisturized. Hibiscus makes your face look firm, hydrated, and naturally young.
Hibiscus has a great amount of citric and malic acids, which do a good job of exfoliating and brightening the skin. Both acids help to gently remove the dead skin cells and encourage their renewal. If you suffer from hyperpigmentation - applying a hibiscus mask can be a solution!
Unblocks the pores
Hibiscus brings relief to oily, prone to pimples skin. Every day our skin is stressed by all the city pollution. The pores get blocked, the pimples come out, and the skin constantly feels all sweaty and sticky. If you ever experienced that - try applying hibiscus honey on your face. It contains a high amount of natural surfactants that have a soothing effect on the skin and helps cleansing it without drying the skin out.
Why is it best to mix it with honey?
Honey is well-known for its antibacterial properties. It helps to get rid of dirt and bacteria, preventing your skin from getting acne. Just like hibiscus, it boosts collagen production to slow down aging and give you glowing skin. Honey is a great moisturizer, and, even if your skin is as dry as the Great Basin Desert, - honey got it covered! It helps to unclog your pores, soothes the skin and sloughs off dead skin cells. Now you see, that hibiscus honey has both the power of honey and hibiscus combined! Isn’t that amazing?
How to make a Hibiscus Honey Mask?
Just take an appropriate amount of our pure Hibiscus Honey and apply evenly on your face, leave it for 15-20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Make sure to gently massage your skin before rinsing off the mask! It’s crucial to only use raw and natural honey because it still contains all the healthy bacteria and enzymes beneficial to your skin! However, don’t forget to do a patch test to ensure you won’t have an allergic reaction to the honey.
Hibiscus can offer countless benefits to our skin without damaging it. Before opting for expensive cosmetic brands, consider if you really want to use chemically-based products instead of finding a natural solution. Hibiscus will help you reach the same results as if you applied regular cosmetics but without any drawbacks that are caused by chemicals.
