You ladies ready for the next NightLight ingredient spotlight?!
Today we have Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Acid…
Hibiscus has a sort of a magical reputation in skin care because it is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs).
Chemical forms of these acids can be overly harsh and damaging to the skin, but natural sources such as those in hibiscus can help provide the same benefits without the harsh drawbacks.
🌺 AHAs are known to help exfoliate, control oily skin and clogged pores, all of which can encourage fresher, younger, and smoother looking skin. They also increase moisture and firm your skin’s look.
🌺 It is also well known for a specific antioxidant called “anthocyanocides.” These not only protect the skin from environmental stressors, but have properties that help pores to appear smaller. They can also help with sensitive skin!
🌺 Finally, the Hibiscus plant has a high mucilage content, which makes it a great skin moisturizer! Combine all these properties together and you have a wonderful anti-aging ingredient that with regular use, helps skin to appear more supple and flawless overall. Plus it has a lovely natural scent.
With powerhouse ingredients like this one, why would you ever want to use harsh chemicals?! Toxin free AND effective are officially on the map in skincare!!
