There is a reason why argan oil is also known as ‘liquid gold’, and it has little to do with the color of the oil. Argan oil has been used in a variety of cosmetic ways for thousands of years, and it’s an ingredient that we reach for regularly in our natural body products.
Here are 5 beauty benefits of argan oil:
Argan oil is naturally abundant in Vitamin E and fatty acids, which give the skin a much needed nutrient boost while providing easy to absorb moisture. Argan oil is known to absorb into the skin without feeling greasy, so it can be used just about everywhere it is needed on the body.
For hair, taking a few drops of argan oil, rubbing the oil between the palms, then working the oil into the hair will give you a shine boost that is friendly to any style. Either before or after blow drying, you’ll find that the hair is not only shiny, but less frizzy and more manageable as well.
When it comes to acne treatment, an oil is usually the last thing people consider. While many oils exacerbate acne breakouts, argan oil isn’t one of them. Applying a couple drops of argan oil to acne afflicted skin can help to soothe blemishes, regulate the skin’s oil production, and combat scarring from past breakouts.
Sagging skin and stretch marks are difficult skin concerns that too many feel that they simply have to live with. With argan oil, you have a simple solution. The Vitamin E in the oil helps to increase the elasticity of the skin while lightening scarring, so current stretch marks can be lightened while developing additional stretch marks is less likely.
Argan oil also provides natural anti-aging benefits, with both its anti-oxidant and Vitamin E properties working hand-in-hand. With regular use, the oil works to combat the signs of aging by protecting the skin from further damage while repairing past damage and bringing the skin’s natural elasticity back.
