So you use a £60 face cream to ward off those pesky wrinkles? That's a start...
But unfortunately, slapping cream on your face won't cut it on its own. You also need good nutrition.
As your skin is the last in line to receive that much needed nutrition, you have to quite literally feed your face with the right nutrients to make a difference to how it looks and feels.
Fortunately, Moringa powder is rich in skin loving vitamins making it highly valued for its rejuvenating effects on the skin, nails and hair.
Both Lily Cole and Livia Firth are huge fans of it and Cosmopolitan magazine wrote "Moringa's nutritional profile reads like a health nut's wish-list."
Here we explore the main 6 nutrients that can help with glowing, radiant skin and what fortunately for us, Moringa powder has in bundles.
The Big 6
Vitamin A - essential for healthy, glowing skin. This key anti-aging vitamin is vital for cell-turnover.
Hala El-Shafie - Founder of Nutrition Rocks - thinks it's a great addition to your skin regime: "Moringa is an excellent natural source of vitamin A......whilst also providing a rich source of antioxidants for healthy skin."
Vitamin E - protects cells from oxidative stress helping fight the signs of ageing and vital for retaining moisture.
Protein and amino acids - supplies nutrients to nourish the skin, hair and nails from within the body. They strengthen connective tissues and keep the skin smooth and elastic, the nails firm and the hair strong. The correct amino acid mix acts like a repair kit from within.
Fortunately, Moringa powder contains all essential amino acids making it a full protein.
B3 Niacin - contributes to the support of the skin’s barrier against pollutants and other irritants and has shown to be useful for encouraging the production of natural emollients that can help the skin remain hydrated.'
B2 Riboflavin - helps clear the skin, repairs damaged tissues and allows wounds to heal faster.
Zinc - helps with acne and helps repair damaged tissues. Zinc is also required for the production of collagen, a connective tissue that is required for skin repair and regrowth
The colossal 46 antioxidants in Moringa powder can help revitalize your skin by protecting it from free radicals. Free radicals cause your skin to age. This internal cleansing ability of Moringa powder can help make your skin strong, youthful and radiant.
I'll leave the final word to leading UK facialist Abigail James who states “I have added Moringa powder as a super food to my diet for years and know it’s amazing for the skin.”
