Green Gold Moringa Face Mask. I whipped up this moringa face mask the day after returning from Philadelphia, where I met with my publisher and we took some pretty photos for my upcoming book (!). After many hours spent on airplanes and in airports, jumping from dry to humid to dry again, and days of wearing a whole lotta makeup, I was craving some serious clay cleansing. This is what I came up with.
The ingredients are simple enough. I started with a simple mix of gentle white kaolin clay and water, and to that I added some raw honey and some moringa leaf powder. These four ingredients came together to make a lovely light green paste that left my complexion refreshed and brighter. Bye bye, plane scum!
Up next, moringa powder. Moringa is something else. I first heard about in Costa Rica, from a Canadian ex-pat who spoke of it with infomercial like excitement. My interest was piqued, so when I saw a bag of moringa leaf powder at Marshall’s a couple weeks ago I took a closer look at the nutritional profile and was pretty impressed. A single tablespoon of the stuff contains a whopping 60% of your daily recommended iron intake! It’s also rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, B2, B6, C. It’s being investigated as a way to help end malnutrition in subtropical areas, which is super cool. Further research taught me that moringa has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for healing. Cool! Definitely a good addition to both face masks and smoothies. It’s got a pretty distinct “green” flavour, similar to that of spirulina or alfalfa, which isn’t relevant for the mask (hopefully!), but good to know if you’re buying a bag to use as a dietary supplement as well.
