This Hibiscus Face Mask|Natural Botox is something I have been using recently and wanted to share with you all. This facemask is a natural, explosive combo of the magical hibiscus that is anti-ageing, rice flour with almost similar capabilities, yoghurt, which reduces blemishes and scars, Aloe Vera gel that has fantastic emollient abilities and honey which is divine nectar. Juxtapose this mask made with amazing organic ingredients blended and applied on the skin with the painful toxins of expensive Botox. There is no comparison as this facemask will revitalize and invigorate the skin miraculously.

Painful Botox

I have heard of women going for painful and expensive botox injections which are temporary beauty fixes with possibly harmful side effects. Botox is used in cosmetology to remove wrinkles by momentarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. It is daunting to use toxins on your skin.  Thus begins a vicious cycle which could have terrible effects. Switch to Hibiscus Face Mask|Natural Botox for amazing results. It is safe, painless and easy on the pocket.

I have always used and shared natural remedies for skin, hair and other uses. Like my FB page Beauty Tips With Elan, where I share lots of tips with everyday stuff from my kitchen shelf.

Hibiscus Flowers for Hibiscus Face Mask

Hibiscus Flowers

Along with my organic kitchen garden, I do have some flowers and the Hibiscus is one of them. Recently I have become obsessed with Hibiscus flowers as I have read a lot about them and I have been using them for my hair. Hibiscus for the face is like a Natural Botox, which has no scary side effects, is easy on the pocket and yet gives you a natural glow and nourishes, brightens and tightens your skin. Isn’t that amazing? I am not exaggerating, believe me.

We are going to age and nothing can stop the ageing process but we can slow it a bit with the right ingredients. Pamper your face and skin with natural and organic products and it will look great always.

Ayurveda

Due to the healing properties, in India, hibiscus has been widespread in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for centuries. The trumpet shaped Hibiscus flower is stunningly beautiful to look at and when used in personal care products you can unlock fantastic benefits for your skin. It blooms in a variety of colours including red, pale yellow and pink which I have in my garden and has long been used as an ingredient in herbal teas and medicines which look after your skin internally.

The ‘BOTOX’ Flower

Pink Hibiscus

Hibiscus is one of the most potent anti-ageing plant and it’s no wonder it is being called the ‘Botox’ plant. Hibiscus has a magical character for increasing skin elasticity to give a gorgeous natural youth-boost. With the incredible ability to prevent the activity of the enzyme elastase, Hibiscus vigorously battles the ageing process by firming and lifting your skin. The
Hibiscus Face Mask| A Natural Botox will slow down your wrinkles; crows feet, laugh lines or frown lines.

Purify Your Skin with Hibiscus Face Mask

Hibiscus contains gentle, natural acids that have an exfoliating effect on the skin. Due to this, Hibiscus can reassure an all-round fresher, younger, evener looking complexion. These natural acids present in Hibiscus assist in purifying your skin by breaking down dead skin and increasing cell turnover. The organic acids from Hibiscus replenish the natural oils lost to give you naturally gorgeous, glowing complexion.

Deep Moisture Enhancement

Lastly, Hibiscus has a naturally high mucilage content, a sticky substance that helps with the storage of water and food. Mucilage makes an amazing natural skin moisturiser that is tender on sensitive skin. This high mucilage content of Hibiscus augments the skin’s ability to retain moisture, which is a crucial factor in retaining a youthful complexion. The naturally moisture rich abilities of Hibiscus helps skin stay hydrated, smooth and supple.

Cosmetics

Cosmetic giants these days just have to label a product anti-ageing and it is a sell-out even if it costs a bomb. But I always steer clear of these chemical alternatives as the secret to a stunning, glowing complexion doesn’t lie in super expensive beauty products. A healthy exterior starts on the inside; you must get to work on your diet and lifestyle.

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera Gel has fantastic emollient properties for moisturizing dry skin. It is very easy to grow and I have it in my garden. It has anti-inflammatory properties which helps lessen acne greatly.Just skin it open and use it directly too.
For fresh Aloe Vera gel, cut one long stem and peel off both sides. Be wary of the thorns. Or peel one side and scoop out the gel with a spoon.

Plain Yoghurt

Plain Yogurt or Curds contain lactic acid, a natural hydroxy-acid which helps exfoliate and hydrate skin and prevents premature skin ageing. Homemade yoghurt is my go-to food, I use in my regular beauty regime. For a quick scrub just rub some curd on your face and scrub it off with sugar; you will have an instant glow. Yoghurt contains zinc, which helps reduce blemishes and scars and helps avert redness of the skin. It also absorbs surplus oil and makes your skin feel tighter and smoother.

Honey for Hibiscus Face Mask

Honey is always there in my kitchen and I use it for my facial too. Raw honey is incredibly good for your skin thanks to its antibacterial properties and its skin-saving antioxidants so it’s great for acne treatment,  for slowing down aging. It is extremely moisturizing and soothing with light natural bleaching properties so it helps create a glow

Rice Flour

Rice flour or powder is frequently used in Asian countries and is known to efficiently treat pigmentation problems, wrinkles, and blemishes. Many Asian countries have been using rice powder as an anti-aging treatment for hundreds of years. Rice paste applied as a mask can lead to a fairer complexion if used consistently or even rice water or starch. You can make rice flour at home by soaking rice for a couple of hours, then dry it indoors and grind it to a powder.

  1. I have heard of Hibiscus used in Oils and Tea, but never heard of it being dried and used like this. Also, it’s a revelation that it is as good as Botox. This deserves a try for sure! Your blog is full of wonderful information!:)

    • Thank u so much Mayuri….I need more friends as you:*. It is a new study and believe me it works. I never share anything that I don’t believe in or tried. My hair was falling rapidly and I started using the flowers for my hair and my hair is now a little fuller and thicker at 55!! Do try and share your experience.

  2. Nice plant. Many plants have medicinal property. Thank you for sharing such quality in Hibiscus. May be one should explore the active component that contributes to the beneficial effect, identify and manufacture in large scale.

    • Thanks Abhijit….I have a garden and I am making maximum use of it for veggies and flowers that I can use. I actually cleared the lawn to grow Kale and other veggies. That’s a great idea and I think I should look into it after enough trials. I am struggling to make ends meet!

  3. Thanks for sharing this, we have ayurved ka khazana around us and still we opt for chemical laden cosmetics. Very useful!

    • Pleasure is all mine Priyanka….Thanks for appreciating. We tend to ape the west and ignore the old Indian treasures. Open a pot of cream and smear it on even if it is toxic. Even yoga for example..the west is going gaga about it but Indians hardly follow. Please try this mask and share the result.

  4. Great information,would love to try….do u recommend any particular brand of aloe Vera if we don’t have the fresh one….also how many times a week do u use the paste…thanks a lot

  5. Wow! I didn’t know about this wondrous flower. I’m definitely going to incorporate it in my DIY beauty regime.

    • Aloe Vera is great Vidhya. But then in this mask it has the magic of aloe vera, hibiscus, yoghurt, rice powder and honey. Power packed 5. Hibiscus boosts the skin and reduces wrinkles.
