Five Great Uses of Argan Oil

Another fabulous multi-use item to keep around is argan oil. This rich golden moisturizing oil has amazing nourishing properties as well as vitamins, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and minerals to help just about anything you apply it to.

Face or Body Moisturizer
Since argan oil is widely regarded as a ‘dry oil’, it absorbs quickly and can be used as an excellent moisturizing primer under your daily makeup. It also works great at night so that you wake up to softer skin. Try it as an after-shave treatment to soothe!

Skincare Additive or Ingredient
If you have cleanser, toner, cream, or even mask that you already love, try mixing in a few drops of argan oil to boost the moisturizing properties. Mix your own facial and lip scrub by blending argan oil and brown sugar together.

Makeup Additive
Blending a few drops of argan oil into your liquid foundation or BB cream will give your skin an amazing glow.

Hair Treatment and Conditioner
Apply a drop or two to dry hair to tame frizz and add shine. Or for a more intensive treatment, massage a liberal amount into the hair and scalp before you go to bed (don’t forget to wrap your hair to protect your pillowcase).

Manicure Treatment
For a quick boost to your manicure, rub several drops into your nails and cuticles. On bare nails, it gives a nice shine. For a deeply nourishing treatment, heat a generous amount until slightly warm (not too hot) and soak your hands in the hot oil treatment.

These are just a few of the uses, but you can certainly add to the list! Try it out and see what it can do for your skin and hair.
