If there’s one oil that can replace most of your skincare products, then it is Argan Oil. Famously known as Moroccan oil because of its stems in Morocco, this oil works wonders on your body.
So, let’s see what magic does this oil have which can renew your hair, skin, nails and immunity completely.
First of all, it is a dry oil which absorbs into the skin immediately, leaving no oily texture or possibilities of acne which is prone to oily skin. Just because it’s an oil doesn’t mean that people with oily skin cannot use it, it’s super light and absorbent which reduces the chances of acne to almost zero. Argan oil can be used over your skin as a moisturiser with a carrier oil and under makeup and that’s something! It is also proven that the application of dry oil helps in reducing damage caused by the sun and promotes skin barrier repair, by repairing the outermost layer of the skin.
Moreover, this oil is rich in fatty acids such as Omega-6 and it helps in reducing acne, acne scars and plumps the skin to give it that mesmerising glow. Being rich in nutrients like Vitamin A, C & E which are the heart and soul of skincare, Argan oil prevents ageing, acne and also promotes the production of new skin cells. Vitamin-A is an essential ingredient because it keeps the skin from getting dry and reflects a healthy diet.
Absence of Vitamin-A leads to a dry and scaly skin which looks dull and pale. Vitamin-E on the other hand when used alone is quite viscous on the skin and cannot be used in pair with makeup or as a morning moisturiser. But for people who want to prevent early ageing and acne, presence of Vitamin-E in the Argan oil just makes it the perfect oil that can be easily used before make up or in the morning without having to deal with the thick and oily textured moisturisers. And lastly, Vitamin C for protecting your skin from damage caused by the sun and pollution and it helps in creating collagen as well.
The presence of antioxidants helps reduce the skin inflammation so it can heal itself and removes any visible damages. Also, antioxidants make skin look more youthful since they lead to collagen production which is responsible for skin elasticity. Elasticity is increased because tissues are strengthened with the regeneration of cells and production of collagen, giving skin a baby like look whilst lightening any visible stretch marks and diminishing wrinkles. Another bonus effect of Argan oil is the one which is responsible for healthy-looking skin and getting a hydrating effect.
As Argan oil is a dry oil, it absorbs immediately and completely locks itself into the skin while keeping its moisture intact for long hours resulting in well hydrated skin.It also heals cracked lips. We all know the importance of hydrated skin and that is the reason we cannot and should not let go of Argan oil at all. Along with hydration, it also improves skin permeability which makes skin absorb any topical nutrients more efficiently and it’s a win-win! Argan oil is equally beneficial for your hair for the same reasons as your skin.
As it nourishes and moisturises your scalp, hair damaging chances are minimal due to reasons like dandruff or dry scalp. Since it prevents dandruff, it also stops the incoming forehead pimples caused by dandruff and it’s basically killing two birds with one stone! Wow! Not just your scalp but its application over hair keeps them from getting dry and minimises any chances of breakage and damage caused due to split ends and other lifestyle related issues.
For the people who colour their hair and suffer damages caused by chemical dyes, Argan oil is the perfect solution because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties makes hair repair itself. And also the presence of fatty acids such as linoleic, oleic and palmitic acid, provides a protective layer to the hair which prevents any damages caused due to styling, colouring or application of heat. And as the chances of damage gets minimal, the hair repairs itself and grows back naturally, thicker and stronger than ever.
The presence of Vitamin E in Argan oil is another reason for you to apply it over your hair as it supports the scalp and provides a strong base for hair growth. This multi-beneficial oil can be used in many forms- as a conditioner, hair mask, hair oil and the list goes long.
