Its simple beauty secrets have been known for many years in Morocco where women use it daily for hair and skin care. The oil effectively moisturizes the skin and hair, taming fly aways and sealing split ends. It helps regenerate the skin and restart cells’ vital functions while aiding in the neutralization of free radicals that cause aging and other skin ailments.
Argan oil comes from the kernel of the Argan which grows well in areas prone to drought. It is rich in Vitamin E, as well as phenolic acid and phenols. It also contains helpful quantities of squalene and carotenes. All of these Vitamins and minerals make Argan oil most suitable for uses on skin and hair.
Argan oil from Morocco can be used day and night to help your skin regenerate itself. It also will moisturize your skin and help to prevent early signs of aging, which may be brought on by stress, de hydration, bad weather and the sun. Argan oil is well-suited for most any skin type, and it helps to rid skin of dry and stretched-looking areas and wrinkles.
Unroasted Argan oil is used traditionally to treat many skin diseases which is why it is so valuable to the skincare field. Argan oil skincare will help alleviate signs of psoriasis and eczema. People who suffer from psoriasis feel that the use of Argan oil has helped in clearing their skin of the physical remnants of the disease. An application of Argan Moroccan oil to your scalp also soothes irritation.
Although Argan oil has a multitude of benefits for preserving skin and hair’s youth, many find that the oil alone is rather thick, leaving an unpleasant residue on skin and hair. Many natural skin products can be combined with other natural oils such as hemp seed or avocado oil for the best effects. Products that combine Argan oil with oils such as hemp will add the greatest anti-aging benefit, as hemp contains valuable skin-identical properties and fatty acids.
If you are purchasing Argan oil, make sure the product you select is authentic. Reputable dealers who carry the product are the safest to buy from, so you know what you’re getting. Some dealers carry Argan oil products that are scented, making the experience more pleasurable and even therapeutic. Argan oil is often labeled Moroccan or Marrakesh oil. Products that contain mineral oil, dyes, sulfates, propylene glycol, phthalates and parabens should be avoided, as they can cause more harm to your skin than good.
If you’ve tried other skincare products from the department or drug stores and they didn’t deliver the results you’d hoped, transitioning into natural Argan oil skincare will be surprisingly safe, effective and inexpensive.
