Argan Oil- Top Benefits For Skin and Hair

Rightly known as "liquid gold"and "miracle oil" -Argan oil comes from argan tree found in southwest of Morocco. Extracted from the oily kernels of the fruit, Argan oil is known for its amazing moisturizing and hydrating benefits for skin, hair and nails. Application of Argan oil externally, helps improve overall skin health as it contains antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids along with vitamins A, C and E. 

Easily absorbed by the skin, Argan oil is used extensively in the beauty and cosmetic industry and is found in many beauty products. Recently, we reviewed The Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil range and since we have been using Argan oil diligently every night as a moisturizer, we decided to tell you all about the top benefits of Argan oil for skin and hair.

Skin Moisturizer- When applied externally, Argan oil helps boost cell production and makes skin soft and supple. Argan oil can moisturize extremely dry skin too and can be used on facial skin and left overnight for maximum absorption. It may feel a bit greasy if used during daytime. Argan oil is a good body moisturizer too, especially during winters. Just apply a few drops after shower over wet skin and let the oil absorb. Wipe off excess and feel the difference!

Prevents Heat Styling Damage- Love heat styling hair, but scared of damage? Argan oil steps in to the rescue! Apply 2-3 drops of Argan oil over wet hair and slowly with a wide-tooth comb distribute it from roots to tips. Style hair as usual. Argan oil is free of any chemicals and can be used frequently in your hair styling routine.

Helps Prevent Hair Loss- Suffering from hair loss? Try including Argan oil in your hair care routine.

Take some Argan oil+ Pure Almond Oil+Virgin Coconut Oil (read more about virgin coconut oil benefits here) and apply using circular motions from front hairline working towards the neck. Leave it for at least two hours before shampoo. 

Healthy Nails and Cuticles- The high levels of Vitamin E in Argan oil helps strengthen nails and the anti-bacterial properties help fight minor infections and irritations, resulting in healthy nails. Argan oil also helps moisturize cuticles, which turn dry due to excessive use of nail enamels and other chemically laden cosmetics. During your pedicure- manicure routine, after removing nail enamel, apply just a drop of Argan oil over your finger nails and toe nails. Wait for a few minutes and wipe off excess. Leave your fingernails without nail enamel for just a day for added benefits. 

Our Favorite- Anti Aging Miracle- Application of Argan oil before bedtime is our favorite beauty routine. We have notice our skin behaving well, without any breakouts. After cleansing skin, follow with rose water application (for toning) and apply a few drops of Argan oil all over your face. Massage for 2-3 minutes. Argan oil helps in collagen production that helps the skin look and feel great and the anti oxidants present fight the damage induced by free radicals. Dab a few drops on lips for soft and supple lips!!
