There are several hundred species of Hibiscus, a pretty flowering plant native to warm, tropical regions. While the vibrant flowers of the Hibiscus have long been used to make tea, other parts of the plant are used for soups, jams and sauces. The powerful antioxidant properties of Hibiscus are revered for their free-radical-fighting abilities and skin-illuminating effect. A natural source of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Hibiscus can help to gently exfoliate the skin, controlling oil and clogged pores. Hibiscus flowers are also known for their moisturising properties, helping to maintain soft and hydrated skin that has added radiance.
