Applying Argan Oil on the Skin, Hair and Nails

Have you heard of this so called miracle oil from Morocco?
Whether or not you’re a beauty buff, I’m sure you’ve heard of it already. Argan oil has been getting a lot of buzz lately and for good reasons. Hailed as the liquid gold, Argan oil is not only good for the skin, it’s also great for the hair and nails too.

What most of you might not have heard of before, though, is how to apply this precious product. The “applying-more-for-better-results” mentality is not always the best approach and in this case this mentality is not going to work. A few drops will already do wonders so better read on if you want your bottle of liquid gold to last longer.

Mix It
This oil is a natural extract of raw seeds from the fruit of Argan trees. This makes it a potent source of essential nutrients which is why it’s often mixed with other aromatherapy oils like sweet almond oil or Rose oil. However, you can use this in its pure raw form also but in smaller amounts.

This liquid gold is very absorbent so a few drops gently massaged on troubled spots will already do. You can opt to set aside your other lotions and night creams if you’re using this as your moisturizer. In case your concern are wrinkles and scars, you can apply the oil twice a day, preferably morning and evening. You don’t need to have a skin problem though to regularly moisturize the skin using this oil. For instance, women who are planning to get pregnant or are in their early days of pregnancy can already apply the oil regularly to preempt the appearance of the inevitable unsightly stretch marks. Also, you can use this as a make up base since the oil is non-greasy.

On the nails, this oil is used hand in hand with lemon juice. Make a 50-50 mixture of the two then dip your fingers up to your cuticles for a couple of minutes. Doing this regularly will help strengthen and smoothen your nails and give your cuticles a nice shape. The same goes for your toes and feet. Regular treatment will help you get rid of calluses and other foot-related problems.

You can be a little generous on your use of miracle oil in this case. Massage the oil on your scalp and spread it evenly from roots to tips half an hour before shampooing. You can use a comb or brush to evenly distribute it throughout your head. For better results, you can opt to wrap your oiled hair with warm towel after. If you don’t have time for a 30 minute treatment then you can use this oil after bath as it works better than wet gels. Two to three drops on your palm will do. Brush hair and see how just a few drops can boost your mane’s lustre.
