HERBS FOR ANTI AGING SKIN

Beautiful skin can be achieved with herbal teas.  Simple as boiling a pot of water and adding a few dried flowers, berries, stems, and leaves.  Imagine that, it is not the hoax that marketing wants you to believe. It is so cost efficient, that everyone can afford this, and start have glowing, beautiful skin today!  Here are my top three herbs for achieving this glowing radiant skin.  First is Bilberry which contains anthocyanins that strengthen blood vessels and promote excellent blood flow to the skin, the eyes, even the brain!  Bilberry also contains the nutrients quercetin and resveratrol.  These fight of free radical damage and are the top nutrients known for anti aging.  Bilberry protects us from radiation and is a cancer fighting herb as well.  My next favorite herb for beautiful skin is Hibiscus, also known as the Botox plant.  Yes thats right, Hibiscus can plump, firm, and lift the skin and help make wrinkles disappear!  The Anthocyanocides, in the Hibiscus plant are natural AHA's. The plant also contains a high percentage of mucilage, which plumps and moisturizes the skin by increasing its ability to hold hydration. Need I say more.  Time to not only drink the tea, but splash it on too!  Ok, so my third favorite, beautiful skin herb is Calendula. It is an emollient and can help to moisturize dry skin. This herb  contains carotenoids which nourish the skin.  So steep a pot of beauty up today.  Affordable and easy to achieve.  I recommend drinking a few cups daily to see results.  Sometimes I blend these herbs with green or white tea which are anti oxidant and increase collagen production in the skin.  White tea has been found to be the most productive between the two.
