The Uses and Benefits of Argan Oil

Have you been suffering from dry, flaky skin or dull, split hair? If so, you are now going to learn about a miracle product that will change the way you look and feel substantially.

In today’s world, we are busy with our careers and have no time to look after our skin or hair. Also, pollution and environmental changes have caused irreversible damage to our overall health and appearance. And no matter how many cosmetic creams you apply or how many times you visit the salon, there is hardly any improvement in the skin and hair. In such cases, the best option is to look for natural remedies, which not only make you look beautiful but also heal you from within.

You might be thinking that you have already tried and tested every natural remedy available on the internet and it has not given you the desired results. If that is the case, then try just one more natural product and you are sure to thank us later for it. This miracle product is known as Argan oil and it has been around for a long time, but isn’t as popular as other natural oils.

Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the Argan tree, which originated in Morocco. Often referred as ‘liquid gold’, Argan oil is the elixir for skin and hair. Moroccan people have been reaping benefits of this precious oil by extracting it from the nut. You will understand how valuable it is when you learn that the Argan forest in Morocco was declared as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

Now that you are convinced about the value of Argan oil, here are some ways in which you can incorporate it in your beauty regimen and get amazing skin and hair.


Use it as a skin moisturizer


How often have you visited the local drugstore in hunt of a good moisturizer that renders softness to your skin without making it oily? If you have been disappointed in all the moisturizers that you have tried to date, then it’s time you started using Argan oil. This oil is blessed with the goodness of Vitamin E that is an excellent ingredient for restoring the natural youthful vigor of your skin. It is loaded with antioxidants which accelerate the healing process of your skin in cases of burns and injuries. And all of these benefits are packed in a drop of Argan oil.

Apart from Vitamin E, Argan oil is also rich in fatty acids, which are crucial for balancing the natural oils of your skin. Some high-end lotions and creams may bring a glow to your face, but in the long run, will rob your skin of its natural oils. So, if you have been using artificial creams for a long time now, it’s time you ditched them and opted for Argan oil.

This oil can be easily applied on your face and neck just before bedtime. Properly clean your face with a mild face wash or cleansing milk.  Then take a cotton ball and soak it with a drop of Argan oil. Using a circular motion, gently apply the oil on your face and neck. Take more oil depending on the kind of coverage you need and if the cotton ball dries out. You can also use your bare hands for this process; just make sure that they are clean and dry. On regular application, you will notice a visible change in your skin tone.


Make your own homemade exfoliation


There is nothing like good exfoliation to make your skin look young and fresh. The bad effects of the environment and artificial cooling and heating can wreak havoc on your skin. All your fine lines, wrinkles, and dull-looking skin can be easily removed just by using a good exfoliation mask.

Having said that, it’s also true that a good exfoliation takes time and not everyone can make it to the salon once a month. So, if you have given up hope of looking your best due to lack of time and patience, then you are in luck! Because Argan oil is an excellent exfoliator, which will remove dead skin cells and leave a fresh and supple feeling on your skin. Wondering how to use it?

All of you have to do is mix a drop or two of Argan oil with brown sugar. Now take this mixture and using a gentle circular motion, apply it on your face. Using the tips of your index and middle fingers, gently scrub your skin. Once the sugar dissolves, wash with lukewarm water and pat dry. Repeat this routine a couple of times and you will notice a never-before-seen glow on your face.

And why just the face? You can use this mixture on dry elbows or flaky skin around your toes. Brown sugar is an excellent scrubbing agent and when combined with the goodness of Argan oil, it casts its magic on your skin. You can prepare this mixture in advance and store it in an airtight container for everyday use. Alternatively, this is also a great gift to be given to your best friend or spouse!


Apply it as a natural hair conditioner


How many times have you looked at your long tresses and sighed about their lost luster and beauty? Have you tried all the so-called excellent shampoos and conditioners to bring some much-needed shine to your dull and spoiled hair? If so, then it’s time to switch to a much better and long-lasting alternative.

You have already learned about the amazing effects of Argan oil on your skin. Now you will be delighted to know that it can bless your hair with a beautiful shine and also promote its healthy growth. Your packaged conditioner will only make your hair feel soft and bouncy for a day or two and after that it will go back to looking dull and frizzy. What’s more, it can also treat your pesky split ends! Think that is impossible? Well, it is time you tried this miracle product and see the benefits for yourself.

Take a drop of Argan oil on your palms and warm it up by gently rubbing your palms together. Now carefully apply it on your hair and pay special attention to the ends. Use the oil sparingly, but make sure that your entire hair is properly covered with the oil. If you are suffering from hair loss, you can take a drop of Argan oil on your finger tips and gently massage it onto your scalp as well. Don’t be too rough on your scalp as it may result in more hair fall.

Argan oil when applied as a conditioner can repair split ends and also reduces the frizziness of your hair. Also, if your hair needs deep conditioning, you can leave the oil in your hair overnight. Wrap a warm towel around your head and sleep through the night. In the morning, you can wash off the oil with a mild, natural shampoo. Not only will the oil nourish your hair, but it will also protect it when you use a straightener, blow dryer, or curler on your hair.


Treat acne with Argan oil


A face full of ugly and painful pimples is anyone’s worst nightmare. This condition is more popularly known as acne and it can be quite a task to get rid of. Usually teenagers and young adults are haunted by the ghost of acne, but some adults may face this problem too.

The worst thing about acne is that you have to be very careful about what products you use on your face. You cannot use a scrubbing agent as it may aggravate the condition; nor can you leave your face unwashed. Also, you cannot use all moisturizers as many are greasy and the oil content might actually result in more pimples than ever.

So, what can you do to get rid of ugly pimples? Your answer is Argan oil! Don’t be alarmed at the term ‘oil’, because Argan oil is completely non-greasy in nature and it will not worsen your skin condition. If your acne is very sensitive and irritable, then it is best to avoid using your hand while applying the oil. Instead, take a cotton ball and dab a drop of Argan oil on it. Slowly apply it on your face with light, feathery touches. Don’t use a circular motion as it may cause inflammation; just make sure that the oil is absorbed by the skin. It may take you a while, but eventually your skin will benefit from it.

However, before you begin this process, make sure that your face is cleaned with a mild face wash and patted dry. Applying the oil on a dirty face will not be beneficial as the blocked pores of your face will not allow the oil to seep in.


Look young again with the regular use of Argan oil


Every woman’s deepest desire is to look young forever, but sadly no matter how many cosmetic products she uses, the effect is never long-lasting. If you have been on the lookout for a miracle product that will restore the soft and smooth appearance of your skin, then try your luck with Argan oil.

Loaded with Vitamin E, healthy fatty acids, and antioxidants, Argan oil is your answer to all skin-related woes. Whether you have been suffering from fine lines and wrinkles, damaged and burned skin, or stretch marks, Argan oil can repair all of these and more.

Argan oil has healing properties, which can soothe pain and work like magic on your skin. Keep a bottle of Argan oil handy if you are prone to getting hurt in the kitchen. If you accidentally cut your hand or burn it slightly, just apply a drop of Argan oil on the affected area and it will soothe your pain and calm your senses. The antioxidants packed in this oil not only heals irritated, cracked, damaged, and burned skin, but also speeds up your skin’s healing process.

Additionally, if you have ugly stretch marks left behind from your pregnancy, then you can now get rid of them with the help of Argan oil. Since, it’s packed with anti aging properties and Vitamin E, Argan oil can smooth your skin and remove stretch marks from your breast, thighs, stomach, and other parts of the body. On the other hand, if you are pregnant, you can use Argan oil to keep your skin soft and supple and your hair hydrated. What’s more, the oil’s soothing and calming properties will enhance your mood and keep you rejuvenated.
