I adore Argan Oil and have just realised that I have not yet shared this with you!
Argan Oil is a multipurpose oil that truly works. It is all natural, 100% organic and chemical free. It has incredibly high concentration of Vitamin E (twice as much as Olive Oil), antioxidants, carotenoids, polyphenols, and fatty acids including Omega 3, 6 and 9, which makes it Ultra-hydrating and nourishing for your skin & Hair.
How can we get the most out of it?
Because it is comprised of extremely high levels sterols, fatty acids and polyphenols as well as extremely high levels of vitamin E, argan oil is an effective antioxidant, great for protecting skin from the harmful effects of free radicals. It is also rich in saponins which have an incredible softening effect on the skin.
As part of your natural beauty routine, argan oil has multiple uses. Here are just a few:
Face Moisturiser Argan oil is a ‘dry’ oil – which means it is very light and absorbs quickly. With damp hands, massage a few drops of argan oil directly onto your face and neck. You can also enrich your regular skincare products by mixing in a couple of drops on your palms before applying.
Great for oily skin In one study a twice daily facial application of an argan oil-containing cream for four weeks revealed significantly reduced greasiness and improved appearance of oily facial skin. Ridding you of the oil slick and leaving a beautiful, healthy glow!
Glossy hair You can use argan oil as a leave in conditioner for your hair. After washing and towelling dry, rub a few drops on your fingertips and run through the hair, concentrating on the ends, to tame frizz and add shine. For a more intensive treatment apply generously to your hair at night, wrap in a turban and leave overnight. When you wash your hair in the morning it will be super soft, healthy and shiny.
Healthy nails As a quick conditioner rub a few drops of argan oil into your cuticles and nails to help soften and protect them.
Kissable lips Before going to bed, apply sparingly to lips, to air healing and repair overnight.
Beautiful feet Use as an overnight treatment for cracked heels. Rub a good amount into your feet paying special attention to rough skin areas. Cover with light socks and rinse in the morning.
Bathtime bliss Mix a tbl of argan oil and a tbl of milk (to help it disperse) into your bathwater for a skin softening soak. Pat, rather than rub yourself dry. Or you can apply as a body oil directly after your bath, to help lock in moisture.
