Argan tree grows exclusively in semi-desert areas in Morocco. This resilient tree produces a rare nut that carries the precious Argan oil. For centuries, women in the region used the oil as part of their beauty routine for a healthy skin and hair. Now that the secret is out, cosmetic companies from all over the world are including Argan oil in their high-end products.
Luckily, you don’t have to buy expensive beauty products to enjoy the benefits of Argan oil. I usually purchase a small bottle and use it as a moisteriser or add it to my body scrubs and lotions. Even though pure organic oil can be somewhat pricey, few drops go a long way to give you a soft and silky skin & hair.
Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, Argan oil has transformative abilities to your skin & hair. Here are five skin and hair problems that this extraordinary oil successfully tackles:
Argan oil is rich in vitamin A & E, Omega6 fatty acids as well as Linoleic acid. These components promote cell production and play a great role in preventing and reducing wrinkles. Here is how to use this miraculous oil for best results: Massage a drop or two of organic Argan oil on your face twice a day. You can also use it as a body lotion after a shower.
Scars & Stretch Marks
Argan oil components help promote skin elasticity and prevent the appearance of stretch marks. For those who already have stretch marks or scars, Argan oil can reduce their visibility by repairing the affected area. The key is persistence. You have to massage the oil gently where needed for at least two months before you see tangible results.
Argan oil has wonderful moisturizing and healing properties that leave the skin soft and well hydrated. With its high vitamin, fatty acid and antioxidant content, Argan oil is the best solution to dry or flaky skin. It absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy feel like other oils. Just massage few drops on your face, neck and the rest of your body with extra attention to dry parts such as the knees and elbows.
Argan oil can be the answer to your prayers if you have acne. Its components are healing and skin rejuvenating. Argan oil contains Linoleic acid, which has strong anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce and eventually eliminate the red spots that usually accompany acne. Argan oil also contains Polyphenol, which helps gently and naturally exfoliate dead skin cells and encourage the formation of new ones, unlike chemical exfoliators that contain harsh ingredients and usually worsen acne breakouts. This wonderful oil is also rich in anti-oxidants and vitamin E that clarify and rid the skin of toxins. Apply a couple of drops to your freshly washed face once at night before bed. Keep in mind that you must be patient and consistent foe few weeks before you see tangible results.
Dry & Damaged Hair
Argan oil takes care of hair from the scalp and roots to the ends. Its antioxidants and moisturizing properties hydrate the scalp, gets rid of dandruff and itchiness and promotes hair growth. The oil tames frizz and nourishes hair giving it volume and shine. Argan oil also helps repair split ends making hair looks thicker and overall healthier. Massage few drops to the scalp and hair regularly and watch your hair transform from damaged and dull to a beautiful, thick and shiny mane.
