Vitamin C is essential for your skin health. It provides a variety of benefits, such as reducing dark spots, redness, and wrinkles. It helps moisturise the skin, and is generally critical for bodily health. As per research published by ‘Oregon State University’, “the antioxidant properties of vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis, make it a vital molecule for skin health.”
Homemade face packs based on natural ingredients are highly beneficial for providing the nourishing effects of vitamin C to your skin. A hibiscus and amla face pack, in particular, will help you boost your skin health, enhance radiance, and moisturise the face.
Amla is rich in vitamin C and packed with antioxidants. It provides anti-ageing benefits, and helps to tighten your skin, and give a vibrant glow.
Hibiscus, with its high content of vitamin C, helps brighten dull skin. Hibiscus also has AHAs that provide an exfoliating effect, removing dead skin cells and dirt. This flower has antioxidants that act against free radicals, helping your skin avoid fine lines and age spots.
So, are you ready to nourish your skin?
Here’s what you will need to make the hibiscus and amla face pack:
-1 hibiscus flower or 2 tsp pure hibiscus powder
-1 tsp honey
– 2 tbsp amla powder or 1 medium size amla
Here’s how to prepare this homemade face mask
Step 1: If you don’t have hibiscus powder, you should start by soaking the hibiscus flower in water overnight. Next, grind the flower to turn it into a paste.
Step 2: Similarly, in case you don’t have amla powder, then blend the amla and convert it into a paste.
Step 3: Add honey to the paste or powder. Mix all the ingredients.
Here’s how to apply the hibiscus and amla face mask:
Steam your face for 5 to 7 minutes to open up your pores. Opening up the pores will enhance the absorption of the ingredients into your skin and double the benefits of the hibiscus-honey face mask. Apply the face mask all over your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Wash your face with plain water and avoid using a face wash.
Adding honey to the face mask, will help bind the ingredients together, and provide a moisturizing and protective effect.
This face mask should ideally be used once a week for deriving the benefits of vitamin C.
So, ladies, pamper yourself with this homemade face pack, providing natural goodness and nourishment!
