Moringa: add this superfood to your beauty regimen

Moringa is a natural ingredient that is creating waves in the beauty industry and what's not to love?

It has been used in ancient medicine for years but has slowly penetrated into the world of skincare over the recent years.

Extracts from the moringa plant boast of generous amounts of vitamin A, which is the compound from which retinol is derived. Retinol makes its way to a lot of creams and skincare products, as it helps boost collagen in the skin. When applied topically, moringa can help control breakouts, lead to regeneration of cells and get rid of blemishes, wrinkles or pigmentation.

That's not all! If you're struggling with dry and flaky skin, get your hands on moringa. It is also packed with vitamin E that smoothens the skin and combats the adverse effects of pollution.

A range of lip balms contain moringa oil since it helps soften the skin and keeps it moisturised. You can also make your own DIY face mask using moringa powder, honey, water and lemon.

Alternatively, you can consume moringa seeds which may aid purification of the blood and help you detox. Moringa oil can also be used in the hair for thicker growth.
