5 reasons to start using Argan oil on your face


1. It has been used for years to treat an array of ailments

Interestingly, Draxe.com notes that natives of the Argan Forest in Morocco used to press the nut to extract this wonder oil, primarily using it as a dietary supplement. But it has also been employed to treat various ailments such as open wounds, rashes, bug bites, infections, razor bums, inflammation and to feed skin and hair.

2. It protects and hydrates

We have heard a lot about the wonders of Argan oil on hair, but now we are starting to put it on our face. According to Marie Claire, it’s packed with all the good stuff like antioxidants, vitamin E, Omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid.

In fact, it is so good at sealing in moisture (without clogging your pores) that it protects you from free radicals and damaging environmental factors like pollution. 

3. It can be used as both a day and a night moisturiser

It absorbs quickly into the skin, making it non-greasy and light-weight enough to sit comfortably on your skin during the day and it's also nourishing enough to hydrate your skin as you sleep. 2-in-1 products for the win!

4. It won’t make oily skin more oily

Natural Living Ideas notes that it works on all skin types – which is great news for the acne-prone. It is often believed that oils should be kept away from oily skin. Wrong. When you deprive your skin from oil it tends to overproduce oil, so when oil is applied to skin it balances your natural oil production. 

5. It prevents aging

It can actually be used as an anti-aging product as it is packed with concentrated anti-oxidant, which means it will protect your skin's elasticity.
