Now, Let’s break down the 19 beauty benefits of Moringa.

One of the first beauty benefits of Moringa oil is that it is a ‘dry’ oil. This means that when applied to the skin, it penetrates deeply in a matter of seconds and leaves skin ‘dry’ instead of greasy. This is a super amazing reason why people with oily and acne prone skin should use it as a moisturiser.
You only need to rub 3-4 drops on your palms then gently dab them onto your clean face!
