10 Argan Oil Benefits for Hair and Skin

10 Argan Oil Benefits for Hair and Skin



Can you imagine that in this world there is
a fruit that is so delicious and nutritious
that goats will literally climb trees to get
to them? Inside that delectable fruit is a
little nut, which gives us argan oil. For
many, many years, those that reside in the
Argan Forest in Morocco have extracted this
oil, which serves many purposes.
Argan oil is chock full of Vitamin A and Vitamin
E, both of which have healing properties.
It also contains linoleic acid, antioxidants
and Omega-6 fatty acids. 
If you own any high-end cosmetics or hair
supplies, you will likely find argan oil listed
in their ingredients. While a bottle of 100%
argan oil is pricey, you will only need to
use one or two drops a day, so it will last
you a very long time.
In today’s video, we will discuss our top
ten ways to implement argan oil into your
daily beauty routine.  
1. Skin Toner
Argan oil can help to keep your skin clean.
To use, begin with one cup of boiling water.
Pour the water over a green tea bag and let
steep for seven to ten minutes. Then, remove
the tea bag and bring the tea to room temperature.
Next, add one or two drops of your favorite
essential oil. We would recommend orange,
lemon, or tea tree. Then, add two to four
drops of argan oil and seal the mixture in
a jar. Use this mixture both day and night,
after cleaning your face, but before applying
moisturizer. 
2. Nighttime Moisturizer
Because of the Vitamin A and Vitamin E that
are in argan oil, it is great to use as a
night-time moisturizer. The oil absorbs into
your skin quickly and will not leave your
skin oily. 
After you wash your face with an all-natural
cleanser, simply add one drop of 100% argan
oil into the palm of your hand and apply to
your neck and face, using a circular motion.
Overnight, the oil will work to fight fine
lines and wrinkles, as well as to keep your
skin moist. 
3. Acne
Argan oil is high in linoleic acid, which
helps to reduce inflammation in your skin
caused by acne, rashes, bug bites and skin
infections. It can even lower the sebum levels
in your body to combat oily skin. 
If acne is an issue for you, simply place
one drop of argan oil in the palm of your
hand and place on the areas of concern. You
can also add tea tree oil to help fight the
acne more effectively, along with any inflammation
and scarring. 
4. Exfoliating
Purchasing exfoliating products in the store
can be pricey. Luckily, we discovered a do-it-yourself
exfoliator using argan oil that not only removes
dead skin cells but also fights signs of aging. 
To make the exfoliating mixture, use one tablespoon
of brown sugar and add one or two drops of
argan oil. Rub this mixture into the skin
on your face by applying in a circular motion
for two to four minutes. Be sure to pay close
attention to any areas that are dry or are
prone to breakouts. The brown sugar assists
your body in absorbing the nutrients in the
argan oil. 
5. Razor Bumps and Burn
An issue that plagues both men and women alike
is razor burn. Argan oil can soothe the discomfort
and heal the inflamed skin. 
Used one or two drops of argan oil and massage
into the affected area. The area will heal
quickly and you will also reduce the chances
of getting ingrown hairs. 
6. Stretch Marks
Argan oil can help to make your skin more
elastic and therefore can help to prevent
stretch marks from forming. This is because
the Vitamin A and Vitamin E help to replenish
and moisturize your skin. You can accomplish
this by using two to three drops of argan
oil to massage into the skin of your stomach,
hips, thighs, or any other area of concern. 
If you already have noticeable stretch marks,
try massaging them with argan oil and brown
sugar before your next bath or shower. After
applying and massaging, wash well and then
add argan oil to the area prior to getting
dressed.  
7. Lip Conditioner
Argan oil can help the skin of your lips,
as well. Simply use one or two drops as a
Chap-stick substitute and wipe away any excess.
The oil will heal cracked lips and keep them
protected from the elements. 
8. Leave-In Conditioner & Styling
As we discussed earlier, argan oil is not
greasy and is a perfect addition to your hair
styling as a leave-in conditioner. The oil
will tame your hair, protect your hair against
the elements and repair any split ends. 
To use, start with one drop, but you may need
to use anywhere from one to three drops depending
on the length, condition, texture and thickness
of your hair. Place the drop, or drops, in
your hand and rake through your hair, paying
attention especially to the ends of your hair.
Next, add a half of a drop to your fingertips
and massage into your scalp.
9. Dry Feet and Heels
As you can imagine, argan oil can help treat
any cracked or dry skin on your feet and heels.
Just rub two drops onto your feet and pay
close attention to the dry or cracked areas.
If your skin is especially dry, you may need
to add a few more drops to properly moisturize
your feet. 
Then, cover with a pair of cotton socks and
leave on overnight. If that is not an option,
be sure to leave on at least for twenty minutes. 
10. Nails
Since argan oil is not greasy, it is also
great to use on your nails and cuticles. The
oil conditions the nails and your cuticles
to prevent hangnails from forming. 
Be sure to remove any nail polish and wash
your hands and feet prior to applying. Then,
dab just a fraction of one drop directly onto
each nail. Do this one at a time and rub the
oil into your nail bed and cuticle. Keep the
oil on until you have completed all nails.
Then, be sure to wash your hands and feet
thoroughly. You can then add nail polish if
you so desire.
