Aging is a normal process of life. A number of factors can as well be responsible. Aside genetics, environmental pollution, and stress are leading causes of aging. While we can't totally inhibit this process, there are cautious lifestyle changes and intentional skincare rituals (routine) you can practice to help protect the skin from oxidation and provide it with vitamins that benefits the skin.
Here is a brightening and anti-aging body mask.
- Palm oil: palm oil is a natural form of vitamin A (an effective anti aging vitamin), and contains beta-carotene.
- Hibiscus: hibiscus also known as Zobo is high in vitamin C a powerful antioxidant that slows down aging and improves skin elasticity.
How to use prepare anti-aging mask; Make sure you get a genuine palm oil. Fetch a handful or more of dried hibiscus petals in a clean glass jar. Add the palm oil till it slightly fills the jar. Shake thoroughly but gently, and infuse for at least 3 weeks and at most 5 weeks. Shake it everyday, and strain the oil out after the said weeks.
How to use the mask; you can either apply the infused palm oil on your skin 30 minutes before having your bath in the morning 4-5 times a week. Or apply it at night as moisturizer after taken your bath and when going to bed.
To prevent it from staining your bed, spread an old wrapper on the bed to lay on.
