Argan oil is new to my beauty routine and I have a feeling my obsession is only beginning. After a few uses and a lot of research, I can’t get enough of this stuff! I have been using it on my hair and skin which I love, but argan oil has so many other applications as well! I love versatile products like this and I think everyone needs them in their drawers!
Argan Oil for Skin:
Argan oil is high in Vitamin E which nourishes and protects your skin, as well as fatty acids which hydrates. Using this can make your skin plumper and look younger, and it can also help with breakouts because the vitamin E acts as an anti-inflammatory for red, irritated skin. Also, it won’t clog your pores or make you look greasy from applying it!
How to use: I love using this in the shower and warming up the oil in my hands and then applying it to my skin. The oil and shower steam is an awesome combo! I will also apply it to dry skin before going in with my moisturizer. The biggest difference I have noticed so far is how much softer my skin is! I also love it because I can use this oil before going in with makeup and it still applies really nicely!
Argan Oil for Hair:
Everything argan oil does for your skin it can also do for your hair: nourish, hydrate, and protect. If you have dry, damaged hair, argan oil may be your answer to shiny, healthy hair!
How to use: You can add a few drops of oil to your palm and work this through damp hair, but my favorite way to use it is by adding a few drops to my conditioner while I’m in the shower. I can feel that my hair is softer immediately and it feels like I have a barrier protecting my hair even after I rinse. I also love how smooth and soft my hair is when I dry it!
Argan Oil for Everything else:
- cuticle oil
- lip moisturizer
- deep conditioner for hair
- stretch marks
- enhance your highlighter (dab some on your cheekbones, then go in with your highlight!)
- use it in DIY face masks
- & so many others!
Is argan oil apart of your beauty routine? Are you going to add it? I would love to know your guys’ thoughts!
Until next time!
