Nature has gifted us some brilliant plants like moringa. From helping us heal pain and build muscle, the benefits of moringa need to be extolled. You will be amazed to know that this wonder green is a glow booster for skin and volumiser for hair. Don’t believe us? An expert agrees with the same.
Sunayana Walia, an organic skincare expert and formulator, spoke to Healthshots and shared some tall praises about moringa.
Walia says, “Moringa is a small leaf plant that is often referred to as the ‘miracle tree’ and rightly so! It is native to India and is a superfood that only helps in boosting energy levels and enhancing mood but is also a guardian angel for skin and hair.”
Combine one tablespoon of moringa powder with some yoghurt and apply all over your scalp and hair. Additionally, if you like you can also add 1 teaspoon of amla powder to it. This is one of the simplest and most effective hair masks as the goodness of moringa and yoghurt combined together detoxifies the scalp, nourishes the hair and boosts hair growth. It also inhibits dandruff and soothes the scalp by fighting inflammation and itchiness.
Walia suggests, “Another very simple way of reaping the benefits of moringa is by using its oil. Moringa seed oil can be used to massage both face and hair. One can also apply it on their lips to condition chapped lips. Moringa oil is also a saviour for people with dry skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.”
To gently exfoliate your skin, combine 1 tablespoon moringa powder with 1 teaspoon oatmeal and a few drops of rose water. Adjust the consistency as per your liking and apply all over your face, excluding the eyes. Once semi dry, gently scrub it off with wet fingers. This dual scrub and mask is best for sensitive skin.
To cool and soothe your skin in summer, simply combine some moringa powder and clay (multani mitti) with aloe vera gel and apply all over your face and neck. This also decongests clogged pores and gives skin a radiant glow.
