Moringa Oil Facial Toner Recipe for Acne Prone Skin or Aging Skin + Giveaway Ends 2/28/15

This post, information, and giveaway is sponsored by Green Virgin Products.  As always, all opinions are my own.  

This week, I used a brand new to me oil, moringa oil.  This oil is very versatile because it is great for acne prone skin and it is known for its anti-aging properties.  Basically, this oil is great for any skin type, which is very unique for a skin care oil.

Moringa oil is high in vitamins A and C.  Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of age spots.  It also helps regulate sebum in the skin, which means that it can help reduce acne while keeping your skin moisturized.  I

It's also high in antioxidants, so it can help slow down aging.  Moringa also contains more zeatin than any other plant.  Zeatin is a plant hormone that promotes cellular growth, which can delay the aging process.  It helps boost collagen production in your skin, which is important to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

You can use the oil by itself to moisturize your skin, and it works great on your cuticles.  If you have flakes caused by dry skin, massage the oil on your scalp and let sit for several minutes before washing your hair.

I wanted to get some of the skin benefits from the oil, so I decided to make a toner to use after washing.  Since you don't rinse it off, you'll get all of the benefits of the oil without adding a step to your morning routine.  This moringa oil recipe is also very easy to make at home and just takes a few minutes.
