When it comes to oils, we are the first in line to decide whether or not it’s worthy of our hair and skin.
If you’ve been following along with us for a while then you’ll have learnt about some of our top, signature oil picks, but one we haven’t yet touched on is the holy grail oil; argan oil!
Often referred to as “liquid gold” this luxurious oil is simply brimming in nutrients, vitamins and minerals that will leave your skin silky smooth and your strands deliciously soft and shiny!
Extracted from the nut kernels inside the argan fruit, and cold-pressed to obtain the oil inside, you can rest assured that all the nutrients remain fully intact.
It has a lovely nutty, fruity aroma. Fun fact for you; goats love to climb the argan tree to reach the nutritious and delicious fruit!
Keep reading to learn more about how this decadent oil can help to improve the health of your skin and your hair!
The first thing you’ll probably always read about argan oil is its incredible ability to deeply nourish and hydrate parched complexions, and we plan on getting to that in just a sec!
Many people read this and then dismiss it if they struggle with blemishes, but that’s the last thing we want you to do!
Argan oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that are just as excellent for problem skin as they are for dry/mature skin types. These fatty acids and antioxidants will aid in tissue repair while helping to calm down inflammation in the skin.
If hydration is what you need then argan oil will give it to you!
Fatty acids make for a deeply hydrating experience that will leave your skin dewy and radiant, but we should mention that this oil absorbs deeply into your pores, leaving behind no greasy residue.
Apply a few drops to the palm of your hands and use your fingertips to first press into your skin before lightly massaging in upward strokes to prevent sagging, until your oil is fully absorbed.
If there are antioxidants involved then you know you are in for a treat in terms of slowing down the signs of aging!
Vitamin A helps to strengthen the skin barrier, helping to prevent moisture loss through the pores while Vitamin E helps to neutralize free radicals and aid in skin repair.
The powerful nutrients in argan oil make it just as beneficial for your locks! Apply a small amount from your mid lengths to ends right before applying heat to help protect your hair from damage.
You can also massage it into your scalp and ends and leave it in overnight for a wonderful deep treatment and then shampoo the next morning as usual. Or add a few drops to your ends to help seal split ends and tame frizz.
