BFFs!!! Tepezcohuite (pronounced Te-pez-co-wheety) is a tree bark from Mexico that comes with surprising healing benefits. These healing benefits have been shown to reduce acne, dandruff, scars, and other skin problems. The extract from the bark is added to skin care creams, powders, and soaps.
Tepezcohuite contains tannins and flavonoids which fight free radicals which help keep the collagen and elastin from breaking down. This bark really has a regenerative effect on the skin and tissue. It has the ability to promote the growth rate of human cell in culture! It actually helps protect the hyaluronic acid in the skin while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
When applied to the skin, Tepezcohuite has also proven to have some powerful healing benefits. It can reduce instances of acne, dermatitis, dandruff, and scarring, for example. It also acts as an analgesic agent and rejuvenates your skin at the cellular level. This is a good option to try if you are suffering from eczema, scaring, psoriasis, burns, acne, fine lines and wrinkles.
Tepezcohuite works using flavonoids that increase the protective rating of your skin. These flavonoids are thought to work by diminishing capillary permeability, which makes it more difficult for toxins to enter the body through the skin.
***** Salma Hayek is a huge believer in Tepezcohuite!!! Here is a segment from Elle:
“The actress doesn’t look like she’s aged a day in the last several decades, and she is finally spilling all of her beauty secrets to Elle magazine.
“I use an ingredient called Tepezcohuite that’s used in Mexico for burn victims because it completely regenerates the skin, and there’s no one in the States who is using this ingredient except for us,” Salma said of her skin care line, Nuance.
“I have no Botox, no peels, no fillings. I’m 48. I will be 49 this year and I only use my creams.”
And besides being the best advertisement for her products, like, ever, Hayek also admitted that her grandmother taught her how to take care of her skin from a very young age.”
