Moringa is a nutrient dense superfood that in addition to promoting optimal health internally, it can also be used topically to prevent aging, wrinkles, and acne. It's a must have for your skincare routine because it feeds your skin with natural and wholesome vitamins that promote a smooth and radiant glow.
Here are 8 top benefits of incorporating a Moringa Face Mask into your weekly routine:
1. Enhance Collagen Production
The abundance of Vitamin A combined with Moringa's rich amino acid profile provides powerful collagen production which gives our skin strength and elasticity and also replaces dead skin cells. The body's natural collagen production slows down as we age so it's important to get it form a natural external source such as Moringa.
Moringa's rich source of antioxidants help slow down the anti-aging process and the degeneration of skin cells by scavenging and quenching free radicals. Plus, Vitamin A is essential for reducing wrinkles.
3. Hydrating & PH Balancing
The active amino acid properties promote healthy cells that hydrate the skin and balance the skins PH.
4. Diminishes Bruises and Blemishes
Moringa is abundant in anti-inflammatories which makes skin healthier and protects it from irritation.
5. Detoxes Skin Layers
The purifying properties of Moringa, which can purify dirty water into healthy purified water have the same effect of your skin, allowing for a natural and safe detox that filters toxins within skin layers.
6. Fights Insomnia
Moringa contains Trytohyan which is an effective amino acid to fight insomnia. We all know that a good night sleep does wonders to our bags and dark circles under our eyes. During sleep our skin cells are nourished and replenished.
7. Helps with Acne
Moringa is considered a powerful herb to fight acne due to antiseptic properties. It is a great source to fight acne, which is mostly caused by bacterial infections.

Alternatively you can try this DIY Aztec-Moringa Face Mask or simply add Moringa to any clay mask using the below directions at home.
First you need a clay mask. I personally like the Mayan Clay Mask from Tulum but any clay mask will work!
Combine 1 heaping spoonful of clay with 1 tablespoon of FERA Moringa powder.
Blend until it becomes a thick and creamy consistency. Because the Mayan Clay was so dense I had to add a little water for it to mix well. Use a spoon or your hands to cover your face with the mask.
Then voila! Leave the Moringa mask on your face for 5 to 10 minutes.
I find it easiest to jump in the shower to wash it off but you can also use a washcloth or warm water and your hands. If you have sensitive skin your face might be a little red or blotchy but don't worry as that will go away.
Your skin should will feel soft and detoxified!
