Homemade Hibiscus Face Mask is Natural Botox
This Homemade Hibiscus Face Mask is 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.

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 that could have terrible effects. Switch to Hibiscus Face Mask|Natural Botox for amazing results. It is safe, painless, and easy on the pocket.

Hibiscus Flowers for Hibiscus Face Mask
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.
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.
I have read that Lashika is a good product for all your winter skin problems.
The ‘BOTOX’ Flower
Hibiscus is one of the most potent anti-ageing plants 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-around 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 a 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 moisturizer 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 help skin stay hydrated, smooth, and supple.
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 help 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 Yogurt or Curds contain lactic acid, a natural hydroxy acid that helps exfoliate and hydrate skin and prevents premature skin ageing. Homemade yoghurt is my go-to food, which 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 the 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 ageing. It is extremely moisturizing and soothing with light natural bleaching properties so it helps create a glow
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-ageing 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 the rice for a couple of hours, then drying it indoors and grinding it to a powder.
