Argania spinosa, better known as the Argan tree, is native to Morocco but known all over the world due to the host of uses it has for health and wellness. Skincare junkies swear by argan oil, an extract of its kernels, for achieving no-frizz, shiny hair and flawless skin.
Argan oil is also known as ‘liquid gold’ due to its exquisite source and all the benefits it has to offer. High-quality argan oil such as Marnys®’ 100% organic-certified cold-pressed argan oil of Morocco can add life to your hair and a natural glow to your skin. Read on to find out some proven effects of this gift to mankind.
The regular application of argan oil on skin has been shown to improve its elasticity. You can prevent saggy or dry, patchy skin by keeping it hydrated with it.
Managing oily skin is not an easy task. The greasy sheen on your face can even show through makeup and ends up giving an overall untidy look to your appearance. Research shows that the application of argan oil twice daily for four weeks can reduce sebum production which is responsible for that greasy look.
The antioxidant qualities of argan oil can keep your skin supple and your hair healthy by reducing signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. This is because argan oil is rich in gamma-tocopherol, a powerful antioxidant that fights damaging free radicals on the skin.
Protection Against Weather Extremes
If you need an effective and all-natural barrier against harsh wind, dry weather, or scorching sunlight, argan oil can be a great solution to guard against the environmental causes of skin damage. Moreover, dry or frizzy hair due to fluctuations in humidity levels can settle down beautifully with the application of just a few drops of the oil on your hair.
If you need a solution to any dark spots, blemishes, or two-toned skin, argan oil could help in lightening these features. Research has shown argan oil to have the potential of being effective against hyperpigmentation of the skin.
There is scientific evidence that the oil may be able to promote the healing of wounds such as those caused by second-degree burns. While more research is needed to confirm this theory, it does indicate that argan oil is a versatile natural product with a variety of beneficial effects for skin.
There are many potential benefits of argan oil for hair. Its conditioning and moisturizing properties can soothe your scalp and provide a frizz-free finish to your hair. Argan oil may even prevent hair loss by reducing breakage. You may use it as a hair mask, while styling, or as a conditioner to protect dry, thin or damaged hair.
The light, flowable nature of argan oil makes it a great carrier oil for essential oils. Mix it up with lemon juice and apply on nails for strengthening them.
