Are you also curious about all the benefits of pure argan oil? Here are 12 different ways you can add argan oil to your daily beauty routine.
Argan Oil as a Nighttime Moisturizer
Our argan oil
is ideal as a nighttime moisturizer. Argan oil absorbs quickly and leaves no oily residue. After cleansing your skin with a natural cleanser, pour 1 to 2 drops into your palm to warm the oil. Then apply in a circular motion to your face and neck. In the winter months, or in dry climates, you may need more drops, Argan oil contains high concentrations of vitamin A and vitamin E and omega 3 and 6. These essential fatty acids and unsaturated fatty acids can help to reduce fine wrinkles and the unique composition has a moisturizing effect. These active ingredients keep the skin soft and supple.
Argan oil as skin toner
Skin toning is an important step in a skin care routine. Pure argan oil has moisturizing properties. For a full glow, add a small amount of argan oil (2 to 4 drops) to 200 ML of your favorite toner. Or even better! Why not make your own chemical-free, all-natural toner at home? Simply pour 1 cup of boiling water over a green tea bag and let steep for 7-10 minutes. Remove the tea bag and let the substance come to room temperature. Add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil (orange, lemon or tea tree are great) and 2-4 drops of pure argan oil and place in a jar. Use morning and evening after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Argan Oil Exfoliant
Do-it-yourself exfoliators are not difficult to make and are significantly cheaper than what you can buy at the store. To experience the benefits of organic argan oil while exfoliating, mix 1 tablespoon of brown sugar with a few drops of argan oil in your hand. Rub your face in a circular motion for two to four minutes; pay special attention to areas that are dry and prone to acne. Then rinse your face with warm water and pat your face dry. Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while giving you a younger, fresher complexion. With the help of the brown sugar, the nutrients from the argan oil are more easily absorbed into your skin. Use this exfoliator for more than just your face! If you have dry elbows or heels or during an at-home pedicure, mix a little more to massage away the dry and dead skin.
Argan Oil Acne Remedy
Good news for everyone who suffers from acne
! Argan oil has been proven to reduce sebum in people with oily skin. Women who have never had acne find that in their 30s and 40s this annoying condition can develop, and it is often difficult to treat. Chemical creams can be expensive and really do more harm than good in the long run. Argan oil's high linoleic acid content helps reduce inflammation caused by acne (not to mention rashes, infections and insect bites) and helps soothe damaged skin cells. If you use argan oil as your moisturizer but are still struggling with acne, consider adding argan oil to your list of home remedies for acne. Place a drop in the palm of your hand and dab a little extra into problem areas. To combat stubborn or persistent whiteheads, make the toner above with a few drops of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil nicely complements the benefits of argan oil with its rich antioxidant content and inherent antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Together they can help fight stubborn acne while reducing inflammation and scarring.
Argan oil against stretch marks
Argan oil can help prevent stretch marks (stretch marks
) by improving the elasticity of the skin. Warm 2-3 drops of pure argan oil in the palms of your hands and gently rub on your stomach, hips, thighs or other possible problem areas. The vitamin A and vitamin E help rejuvenate the skin while moisturizing, making stretch marks less likely to form. If you already have stretch marks, start by massaging argan oil and brown sugar into the affected areas before your next bath. Rinse well and apply the oil to the affected areas before getting dressed.
Argan oil against razor bumps
Razor bumps and razor burn are uncomfortable and unsightly. Argan oil is an effective treatment to soothe the skin after shaving, both for men after shaving their beards and for women after shaving their legs. Warm a drop or two of the oil in your hands and massage lightly into the affected area.
Moisturizer cream for the whole body
You can also use argan oil as your full body moisturizer. Hopefully you're already using an all-natural moisturizer (like shea butter
) on your body and avoiding the harsh hidden chemicals found in most lotions and moisturizers. Add just a few drops of argan oil to your favorite nutritional oil (mango butter
) to immediately reap all the benefits of this therapeutic natural oil. If you have dry patches on your heels, elbows or other areas, massage an extra drop into those areas for relief.
Argan oil as a leave-in conditioner
Argan oil is not only good for the skin, but it is also great for your hair. This non-greasy oil makes for the perfect leave-in conditioner that makes your hair easier to style while repairing those pesky split ends. Argan oil protects against the heat of hairdryers, curlers and flat irons, while at the same time giving the scalp and hair a healthy shine. Research shows that argan oil can even promote hair growth, so rub it into your scalp as well. Depending on the thickness, texture, condition and length of your hair, you may need 1 to 3 drops! It may take a while to find the right balance to get the right amount. Start with a drop (or ½ drop for short hair) and warm it in your palms before running your fingers through your hair. Pay extra attention to the ends. When you're done, add ½ drop to your fingertips and massage into your scalp. Rub excess into your face, neck or hands.
Overnight deep conditioning treatment
Do you have dry and/or brittle hair? Then treat your hair with a deep conditioning treatment once a week. Warm 4 to 10 drops of pure argan oil in your hands before massaging your scalp. Massage your hair to the ends and wrap it in a towel or shower cap. The body heat retained by the shower cap/towel ensures that the oil can penetrate properly, while your pillowcase remains oil-free. Then wash your hair well in the morning so that all oil residues are gone. Do you suffer from dandruff or a dry scalp? No problem, do a night treatment twice a week until the dandruff is gone.
Argan oil has more benefits than just for your skin and hair; it makes for a beautiful lip treatment or lip balm substitute! Rub in 1-2 drops and wipe away excess. It not only relieves chapped lips but also keeps your lips soft, supple and conditioned. With argan oil you can prevent chapped lips in the winter!
Nail and cuticle treatment
Now let's talk about how this can help your nails! The non-greasy moisture of argan oil is an ideal treatment for cuticles and nails. Remove all nail polish from fingernails and toenails and rinse thoroughly. Dot a fraction of a drop directly onto each nail, one at a time, and rub into the nail bed and cuticle. Leave it on until all nails have been treated. Wash and rinse thoroughly, then apply polish as desired. Not only does the oil help condition your nails, but it also helps keep your cuticles moisturized so you don't develop sore nails.
Do you suffer from dry feet and/or heels? Then apply 2 drops to your feet. Pay extra attention to the dry spots. Depending on how dry your skin is, you may need to apply a few drops more to fully moisturize your feet. Cover your feet with a pair of cozy socks to give the oil
a chance to soak in. Leave the socks on for at least 20 minutes or better yet, keep them on all night! This way the oil has time to do its work. Then use a warm washcloth to remove any remaining oil residue. *Disclaimer Do you suffer from a nut allergy
