How do women maintain their beauty? Not by doing nothing, for sure! A regular beauty routine is very important. This is where Argan oil comes in. This Morrocan oil has been around for centuries and a long-time favorite by the Berber women for their beauty needs. The oil is pressed from the nuts of the Argan tree which is found exclusively in the Southern parts of Morocco. Here are the top 5 beauty benefits of Argan oil.
Argan oil does wonders for your face. Apply as an intensive moisturizing treatment at night or use as a base for your makeup in the morning. If your skin needs extra moisturizing, you can nourish it by applying this oil to dry areas.
You can also use this oil as facial massage oil before retiring for the night. Pour a small amount of the oil on your palms and then gently rub your face in circular motions. A little of this 100% natural oil goes a long way thus you only need to use a few drops for your face. The oil penetrates your skin easily hence it is easily absorbed. It is non-greasy so it doesn’t leave you with a sticky feeling.
Argan oil has antioxidants that repair hair damage at the cellular level helping your hair bounce back to health. Application of the oil smoothes the hair shafts keeping frizz and flyaway hair away. The oil restores remarkable shine by keeping it moisturized and healthy. Essential fatty acids in this oil improve protein structures and give you strong and healthy hair.
This miracle oil is also effective for colored hair by countering dryness and damage while boosting the color and making hair radiant. While it is very effective as a hair moisturizer, it will not weigh down your hair and make it appear limp and lifeless. This Moroccan oil doesn’t leave you with a greasy residue so you can still enjoy hair that is light and full of volume!
Dark elbows are usually caused by a buildup of thick skin from all the friction and pressure on this area. Keep your elbows moisturized to prevent the accumulation of dead skin cells on this area. Apply the oil on your elbows daily by massaging the oil immediately after bathing or washing. The essential fatty acids on the oil will work to soften the rough skin and keep your elbows moisturized by sealing in moisture. Exfoliate the dead skin cells by using a scrub made by mixing the oil with sugar.
Hands and Nails
One of the best moisturizers for your hands and nails is this Moroccan oil. Apply the oil to your hands immediately after washing. Keep in mind to rub the area around each nail thoroughly. This will not only soften and moisturize the cuticles but will also strengthen weak or brittle nails limiting chipping and cracking. Regular use of this oil will also give your nails a healthy shine.
As mentioned earlier, this Moroccan oil is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. This property makes this truly wonderful oil a great body moisturizer. Massage the oil onto your skin after bathing or washing to seal in the moisture to your body. It hydrates and protects the skin against drying out. The oil is packed with vitamin E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. These nutrients help the skin remain firm and elastic preventing the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite.
