Benefits of hibiscus powder for skin

The hibiscus flower has actually been given the nickname "nature's Botox" by many dermatologists due to its renowned skin firming properties. The antioxidants in hibiscus break down elastin, while its vitamin C promotes collagen production.

What's more, hibiscus contains Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and fine lines or wrinkles, while also preventing future breakouts.
