100% Argan Oil -7 Uses For This Natural Liquid Gold

Several years ago, argan oil – in all its gold glory – became the hot new beauty fad on the scene. The discovery of its unparalleled benefits for skin and hair led cosmetic companies to include the ingredient in almost every product they put on the shelves. But unlike similar beauty fads that come and go in a matter of months, argan oil is here to stay, much to our delight.

Beauty Benefits of Argan Oil

Where does Argan Oil come from?

Argan oil comes from the argan tree located in southwestern Morocco. These trees have been around for centuries (they can live up to 200 years!) and are rich in the argan fruit. The month of July is prime time for the fruit, which falls off the tree once it has ripened. The hard nuts in the center of the fruit contain oil rich seeds from which the argan oil is extracted.

What is it used for?

In Europe and North America, argan oil is used mainly for cosmetic purposes, and these days, can easily be found on drugstore shelves. In fact, you may have tried the liquid gold for yourself and can attest to its incredible moisturizing capabilities. If not, it’s time to change that.

Argan oil contains fatty acids, antioxidants, and Vitamin E, rendering it non-greasy, non-irritating, and easily absorbed by skin and hair. Its versatile uses include smoothing, moisturizing, and revitalizing skin, hair, and nails. Argan Oils many benefits and irresistibly smooth feeling make it a must-have addition to your daily beauty regime.

Here’s how you can reap all the golden benefits of argan oil this summer:

Hair

  • Frizz fighting serum – Lets be honest, there’s nothing worse for your hairdo than super intense humidity, and with this relentless heat wave passing through, your hair is screaming for some extra attention. Fight the frizzy flyaways by finger-combing a dab of oil through your hair before facing the summer heat.
  • Deep conditioner – Using argan oil as a deep conditioner is a great way to revive your hair follicles overnight without the greasy hair look the next day. Apply a liberal amount from root to tip and tie your hair up gently or braid it before sleeping. Wash it out in the shower the next morning for bouncy, shiny hair!
  • Restore split ends & add shine – Split ends can make your hair look overly dry and damaged and are exacerbated by styling with hot tools. For heat free styling and added shine, apply some oil to hair when damp and let it dry naturally. Apply a little more when it’s dry for an extra boost of shine. (Or braid it when damp for heat free waves!)

 Skin

  • Prevent dryness – The hydrating properties in argan oil are what make it the ideal skin moisturizer. Rub argan oil into your skin after a shower to lock in moisture all day and prevent dryness. Applying argan oil before swimming in a chlorinated pool will repel the diluted chemicals from drying out your skin. Either way, you’ve got a waterproof skin coating and a foolproof skin regime.
  • At home spa treatment – You don’t have to go to the salon to achieve soft hands and feet. For a fraction of the price, you can give yourself an at home spa treatment by massaging argan oil into callused feet and tired hands. As a bonus, the oil will add luster to brittle nails and dried out cuticles.
  • Stretch mark remedy – Argan oil’s nutrient rich moisturizing qualities help improve the skins elasticity, making it an ideal oil to use to help prevent stretch marks. Massage a generous amount of oil onto your stomach, thighs, hips or any other area of concern.
  • Protect & heal – The nutrients in argan oil have therapeutic properties which are ideal for treating inflamed or irritated skin. Rubbing argan oil over razor burned skin can help relieve discomfort and soothe irritation.  Use several times a day for added hydration of dry irritated skin.
