Amla or indian gooseberry is loaded with vitamin C and powerful antioxidant properties which help to protect the skin from free radicals and sun damage. It is anti-inflammatory aiding stressed, inflamed skin; it has astringent properties which help to shrink pores and diminish acne; and it's conditioning properties help to moisturize and repair the skin barrier.
Hibiscus is the plant kingdom's version of botox. It contains naturally occurring AHA's (alpha hydroxy acids) which help to exfoliate the skin and speed cell turnover, which in turn helps reduce acne breakouts and offers younger, fresher, and smoother skin. AHA's also improve elasticity and flexibility of the skin. The antioxidants in the hibiscus plant are called anthocyanocides. They protect the skin from free radical damage and contain astringent properties that make pores appear smaller. Anthocyanocides also have an anti-inflammatory effect that aids skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Lastly, hibiscus boasts a high mucilage content making it moisturizing to the skin.
Shea Butter is full of benefits for skin at any age but especially for those of us in need of hydration. It is a quick absorbing moisturizer containing fatty acids that help maintain skin elasticity and collagen production. It heals irritated skin, fades scars from acne and sun burn, helps the skin maintain elasticity and soothes eczema and psoriasis. Lastly, it is non-comedogenic, meaning it is highly unlikely to clog pores.
