Organic argan oil is deeply nourishing for hair and skin. Easily absorbed, it contains saponins, carotenoids, and polyphones, which all play a part in keeping us looking youthful and healthy.
Organic argan oil uses
If your hair and skin need a bit of a miracle boost, it’s time to incorporate argan oil into your daily routine. It’s often used in moisturisers and shampoos, where all that vitamin E boosts our skin’s defence and helps it to hold on to moisture for longer. To keep your complexion dewy, try adding a few drops of organic argan oil to your usual moisturiser or make your own with our easy homemade moisturiser recipes.
As we get older, our skin tone can often become a little uneven. Argan oil helps to even out dark patches caused by exposure to the sun, maturing skin and even our hormones. The chemical compounds in argan oil help to discourage the formation of excess pigment, and in time you should see a smoother, more even skin tone without marks.
You’ve probably seen hair products based almost entirely around the power of argan oil, and that’s because it works wonders on our locks. Try making your own argan-based hair mask and give your hair a deep treatment every now and again. Be sure to leave the mask on for half an hour to allow the oil to lock all that moisture in before rinsing.
Organic argan oil benefits
Our organic argan oil benefits our skin in so many ways. It hydrates and locks in moisture, but it also holds its own as a cleanser. Don’t be put off if you have oily skin, as argan is so light it won’t leave your complexion feeling weighed down with excess oil. In fact, regular use of argan as a facial cleanser often sees reduced amounts of sebum on the skin, creating a less oily-looking complexion.
We’re all guilty of styling our hair with excess heat. We know it’s not the best thing ever, but those curling tongs and hair straighteners just make our hair look so gorgeous. The good news is, we can harness the power of argan oil to protect our hair from all that styling. Comb a few drops of oil through wet hair before drying and styling with heat. The vitamin E and those helpful fatty acids will offer some protection, helping hair to stay stronger for longer.
On a similar note, argan oil can also be used to help protect hair from the sun. If you’re going to be soaking up some rays, add some argan to your hair before drying and styling to help protect it from free radicals and the sun’s rays.
