Skincare fanatics are always on the lookout for the next big thing that will hit the beauty industry. From at-home skin care tools, popular makeup brands to facial washes, everyone is ready to pounce! In 2007, only a few companies saw the potential for the use of Argan Oil. In no time, its benefits have become well-known and were dubbed as a modern-day “liquid gold.”
Argan oil is naturally rich in Vitamin E, which is great for health and repair of the skin and hair. It is also abundant in healthy fatty acids and antioxidants.
It is healthier than olive oil, which is nuts!
Nowadays, many are aware of this Morrocan gift to the world. It is often mixed with other healthy ingredients to address different hair, nails, and skin problems. If you aren’t familiar with what benefits you can get by using this oil, read on and let’s get to know Argan Oil better.
A Great Moisturizer
After washing your face, pour a drop or two of your argan oil and apply in a circular motion to your face and neck. Argan oil absorbs easily and does not leave any oily residue. Argan oil has natural healing properties that can calm redness and skin irritation. Like mentioned, it is packed with fatty acids and vitamin E that nourishes and repairs the skin.
Dry Skin Quencher
The fatty acids and vitamin E make this oil ideal for people suffering from xerosis or dry skin. It nourishes and repairs the skin to prevent flakiness and itchiness. A drop or two of this liquid gold, preferably after bathing, will help lock in moisture and heal the skin at the cellular level.
Contrary to popular belief, oil can be used even for people with oily skin. If you strip your face with its natural oils, the skin will overcompensate and produce more oil than necessary. Argan oil is non-greasy and absorbs readily, nourishing the skin and balancing its oil content. Thanks to the linoleic acid, argan oil has anti-inflammatory properties, it can heal active breakouts.
