Benefits of Argan Oil for Skin :

Overview

Curious to know exactly what the Moroccan oil hype is all about? You've probably seen it everywhere, in almost every natural product on the market and probably sitting on the shelf at your local beauty supply store. But why should you care about this latest beauty phenomenon? Learn all you need to know about how argan oil gets skin glowing, radiant and healthy.

What It Is

Argan oil, the proper name for Moroccan oil, is a beauty product ingredient made from the nuts of the Argan tree found in Morocco. High in vitamin E, minerals and antioxidants, this oil is used not only for improving skin but for overall health as well. Women in Morocco have been using this rare and relatively expensive oil for years to protect the skin from signs of aging and to nourish their hair, skin and nails.

Anti-Aging

Fight signs of aging naturally with Argan oil. With its high level of antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids, this oil reduces inflammation while protecting the body against free radicals. Get your daily anti-aging fix with natural brands that infuse this oil into their products.

Skin Protection and Healing

According to the Argan Oil Society, regular use of the oil helps diminish scars and bad marks on the skin and also softens dry and cracked skin better than Shea butter. What also makes this natural oil rock is that all skin types can use it! Hydrate and balance your skin with it whether you have eczema, psoriasis or acne. Because it also has antiseptic properties, Argan oil can be used to treat other ailments like small cuts, rashes, hyper-pigmentation and even baby's diaper rash.

How to Use It

Grab a bottle of 100-percent Argan oil (typically packaged in an amber or violet bottle), and massage in a few drops to moisturize your face and body. A little goes a long way, so use this pricey oil sparingly. The oil absorbs into the skin easily so you can use it by itself or add it to your favorite lotions or creams.
