Argan oil comes from the argan tree, which is very common in Morocco. These trees have nuts that contain oily kernels, which are cracked and roasted to produce Argan oil. For hundreds of years, Moroccans have been using Argan oil for its amazing skin properties. But why is Argan oil so effective? In this article we explain everything!
Argan oil has become incredibly popular in skin care products because it contains many beneficial properties and is extremely versatile. The oil is excellent for dry skin and is suitable for both body and face. It is ideal for eczema, stretch marks and to keep the skin soft. The oil has even been called "nature's liquid gold" and it’s not just because of the color.
Its amazing features
The rich content of vitamin E in Argan oil counteracts scarring, accelerates healing and soothes irritated skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties make the oil suitable for acne prone skin and psoriasis. Argan oil also contains carotenoids, and they protect the skin from UV rays. Therefore, the oil is good to apply after the sun, as it supports the skin after possible sun damage. In addition, 80% of Argan oil consists of essential beneficial fatty acids. These help reduce wrinkles by maintaining and renewing the creation of new healthy skin cells. These essential fatty acids help the skin retain water, giving a youthful, moisturized result and a beautiful glow.
Argan oil and acne
Argan oil counteracts and reduces the inflammation that occurs in connection with acne breakouts. The oil does this by moisturizing and promoting skin renewal. The oil also regulates the skin's sebum production, which means that clogged pores are counteracted, while natural exfoliation is promoted. This gives your pores a chance to breathe. Regarding acne scars, vitamin E and the antioxidants in the oil help to start the skin's own repair process, which restores damaged skin. Therefore, Argan oil is very good for you if you are affected by acne because it helps to counteract and reduce acne scars.
Minimizes inflammation and stretch marks
Argan oil's ability to promote the skin's repair process also helps to counteract inflammation and to minimize stretch marks. The oil also helps the skin to absorb other skin care products, as it, with its moisturizing and exfoliating properties, ensures that there is no barrier of skin cells that stops the products from sinking into the skin.
