10 Best Argan Oil Skincare Remedies and How to Use Them
There is a very good reason why Argan Oil is also called “liquid gold”. The Moroccan oil has amazing benefits for your skin and hair. It is lighter as compared to other oils, has an aromatic fragrance and can be used frequently to get glowing skin.
About Argan Oil
Argan oil is pressed from the nut of the fruit from the argan tree which is only found in Morocco. So nutritious and yummy, goats will climb the trees to eat the fruit. I would love to see that! Weird but awesome factoid is some goat farmers remove the undigested seed from the goat poop and produce the oil. I guess you could say argan oil is sustainable with the double use.
Argan oil is loaded with essential fatty acids like oleic, linoleic, and palmitic. It also has carotenes (Vitamin A), Vitamin E, phenols (natural exfoliant), squalene (highly emollient and antioxidant), making argan oil perfect choice to add to skincare. It is non greasy, a great moisturizer, control sebum output (great for acne), tightens skin and controls elasticity.
Argan oil is found in zensitive serum with and without added CBD oil.
Here are the top uses you have for Argan oil:
1) Remedy for dry feet
You would need argan oil especially during the rough winter months when you get painful, cracking heels. Pour a few drop of the oil in a container, apply some on your hand and gently rub for five minutes on moth your feet. The ritual should be carried out before sleeping. Not only would you enjoy a pleasant aroma but also get amazing soft skin when you wake up. Repeat the ritual every night.
2) Skin Toner
Why use expensive toners from the market when you could simply use an argan oil spray? Argan oil does not contain chemicals or preservatives; thus, it wouldn’t be harsh on your skin. To make your own toner, boil water, add a green tea bag and let it settle. When the mixture cools down, add five drops of argan oil and pour it in a spray bottle. Use every day for a natural glow.
If you have dry skin, apply two drop of argan oil on you hand and gently rub in circular motions on your face, including the eye area as it is harmless. This can help increase blood circulation and give you a radiant glow over time. Because of its known ability to hydrate skin, you will find Argan oil in GoodNight Moon Beams
