The Hibiscus flower is used in the Caribbean to fade dark spots and even skin tone. Here’s why!
Hibiscus contains natural acids that are known to have skin-brightening properties. These acids, including alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), are believed to work by exfoliating the top layer of the skin, which can help to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
In addition to its exfoliating properties, hibiscus also contains antioxidants, such as vitamin C, which can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage skin cells and contribute to the formation of dark spots and other signs of aging.
Research suggests that hibiscus may also have astringent properties, which can help to tighten and firm the skin, making it appear smoother and more even in tone.
This is why our REVIVE Hibiscus Peppermint Toning Mist is so effective in fading dark spots and evening skin tone. It contains a high concentration of the hibiscus flower which is evident in its vibrant red colour! It also contains other nourishing ingredients like Aloe Vera and vitamin in to hydrate and nourish the skin.
