Who doesn’t want a clear-looking skin, free from acne breakouts and scars? While some are born with flawless glass-like skin, others are the unfortunate ones with not so pleasant skin conditions. Amid the situation, tamanu oil has helped people to heal their skin barrier by promoting new cell growth. This exotic oil is derived from the fruit by the tamanu tree. It has a pungent smell with a hint of nutty-scent and is bluish-green in colour. Apart from its good-looks, this natural oil contains anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which is beneficial for sensitive skin.
The versatile nature of tamanu oil makes it ideal for DIY recipes to add a boost of nourishment to your skin. However, we recommend doing a patch test just to be extra sure. Otherwise, here are some of its wondrous uses that can work out for you.
Tamanu oil is popular to treat acne blemishes. It can heal the zits due to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory profile. If you are worried about its thick consistency, you may dilute it with some tea tree oil for better absorption.
If you’re someone who’s bothered by their stretch marks can try applying tamanu oil religiously for visible results.
Thanks to the oil’s moisturising effect, you can add it to your anti-aging skincare routine. A daily application of tamanu oil can fight signs of aging like winkles, fine lines, dullness. It promotes collagen productions.
Tamanu oil is also helpful to treat ingrown hairs and painful bumps. It can reduce any inflammation caused by the growth of ingrown hair as it comes packed with anti-inflammatory agents. Post-waxing or shaving, you may apply tamanu oil to prevent rashes.
The rich fatty acid profile of this miraculous oil makes it ideal to treat dry to very dry and flaky skin. It can soothe serious skin rashes like eczema and help to heal it faster.
