A growing preference for natural products free from chemicals, along with a concern for the environment is driving the demand for herbal beauty products. This means Annique, and its key ingredient Rooibos, is perfectly placed to suit your needs.
The high concentration of polyphenolic compounds (micronutrients) in Rooibos tea is what makes it so sought-after as a health and beauty enhancer.

The high flavonoid levels in Rooibos also help to improve skin disorders like eczema. It’s natural anti-inflammatory properties will help soothe and relieve inflamed skin. Rooibos teabags can be directly applied onto the affected skin for a few minutes. Bathing regularly or rinsing inflamed areas with the tea will provide a healing effect.

Inflammation is a major cause of acne and when your skin is damaged, it’s more vulnerable to bacteria which can aggravate acne.

The polyphenols or antioxidants in Rooibos tea also strengthens hair follicles and promotes shiny and soft hair. Rinse your hair at least once a week with a strong brew of cooled down Rooibos tea for glowing locks. This is also good for treating a dry, itchy, or irritated scalp. Tired and sensitive eyes can also be treated with lukewarm Rooibos. Place tea bags on eyelids or rinse the eyes gently with the tea. Rooibos is also hypoallergenic and is therefore ideal for people with sensitive skin.
