Tepezcohuitel is a dried tree bark from a fern-like plant native to Southern Mexico which has been used for thousands of years to treat damaged skin. This Mexican botanical has naturally antibiotic properties, and many anti-aging creams utilize its healing power. Some Hollywood stars have used Tepezcohuitel regularly to keep their skin youthful and fresh. However, the most prominent use has been the treatment of burn victims in a 1984 gas explosion in Mexico City. If you have wrinkled skin, acne, or burns, Tepezcohuitel can help your skin look more youthful.
