Hala El-Shafie, Aduna consultant nutritionist and founder of Nutrition Rocks explains the benefits:
In addition to the beautifying effects of Aduna Moringa in this face mask, the green tea and lemon juice makes it great for rejuvenating the skin. Aduna Moringa is an excellent source of antioxidants with a high contents of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and bioflavonoids; these nutrients help promote healthy skin whilst the powerful antioxidants help slow down the ageing process, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The green tea is a powerful antioxidant and natural UV protector, rich in multivitamins and minerals that nourish the skin and help fight the signs of ageing. The vitamin C in the lemon juice boosts collagen production while citric acid tightens pores and brightens the overall complexion. Lemon juice also contains lutein which strengthens natural antioxidants, fights premature ageing and enhances UV defence. This skin mask is great for promoting rejuvenated, glowing and blemish free skin.
