What is argan oil?
Argan oil is a plant oil extracted from the argan tree's kernels. The argan tree grows in the Moroccan desert in the southwest.
The silky, lightweight oil produced is used widely in skincare and haircare products because of its gentle and healing nature.
What Are The Benefits of Using Argan Oil?
Argan oil is gentle and highly nourishing. It’s non-comedogenic so it won’t clog your pores. It’s safe for all skin types, including acne-prone or oily skin.
Argan oil has a beautiful healing ability that will improve the appearance of the skin and prevent transepidermal water loss, so the skin stays hydrated longer.
It’s comprised of about 95% fatty acids. Fatty acids are crucial regarding skin health because it helps to soften, nourish, and hydrate the skin on a deeper level.
Argan oil is also rich in antioxidants, which will shield the skin from environmental stressors such as pollution, free radicals,
It also has anti-inflammatory properties, which will facilitate the soothing of irritated, compromised skin.
How To Use Argan Oil for The Face
There are many ways to incorporate argan oil into your skincare routine. It can be used on the face as well as on the body.
What is the best way to use argan oil?
The most beneficial way to use argan oil is as a sealant. Apply it directly after using your moisturizing products to form a seal over the skin to prevent moisture evaporation.
However, there is no rigid set of right or wrong ways to use argan oil.
To simplify your routine, argan oil can be mixed with your favorite skincare products, such as your moisturizer or eye cream, to boost the product’s moisturizing abilities.
Can I use argan oil directly on my face?
Argan oil is safe to apply directly to the face and body. To properly hydrate the skin, it must be exposed to water. To reap the benefits of argan oil applied directly to the skin, it’s best to do so with freshly washed skin.
Massage a few drops of argan oil into the desired area. It will help seal in the water your skin has already absorbed from your shower.
Can I use argan oil every day?
Argan oil is generally safe to use every day. The majority of skin types will tolerate argan oil very well. However, keeping a close eye on how your skin reacts to the product is always best.
If you notice any sensitivity or irritation, it may be best to limit your argan oil use to twice a week.
