In fact, it also moisturizes and replenishes the skin that is already damaged.

Using tamanu as a gentle exfoliating cleanser will really give you the refreshing results you want. Since it is known to hydrate your skin, replenish the necessary oils, and cleanse with its anti-bacterial agents, tamanu oils is highly recommended as a dry scrub. Additionally it will help with any puffy areas, since it also possesses anti-inflammatory vitamins. Now, for the dry scrub, wash your face with warm water and dry; lather and massage tamanu oil into your skin for a minute or two; and add a pinch of sugar to your face and gently scrub in circular motions; and voila! Your skin will be extra hydrated and smooth.
