This product is traditionally used by the peoples of North Africa to protect the skin from the hot and arid climate. Here are properties and benefits of Argan oil.
Argan oil is the result of squeezing the seeds of the thorny argan, a very rare and precious plant typical of Morocco . In general, about 90 berries are needed to produce a liter of oil. These, after being cold pressed with a grinder, are processed according to the Moroccan tradition. The long and complicated procedure justifies the preciousness of this product, widely used in treatments for the face and the protection of skin and body. Let’s find out what are the properties and benefits offered by Argan oil and how to use it in the right way.
Argan oil: the properties
Argan oil has not been used since ancient times by chance, but for the many properties it has always enjoyed. Considered a natural anti-aging, the argan berry extract contains vitamins A, E, Omega 6 and various fatty acids such as phytosterols and polyphenols.
Furthermore, thanks to its moisturizing composition, it is able to stimulate the production of collagen and preserve elasticity. By using this oil, it will therefore be possible to keep the skin of the face and body young , without considering that it is also a natural emollient. In addition, this product, compared to other vegetable oils, is non-greasy and does not leave halos or stains and is absorbed quickly.
Argan oil: the benefits
Since Argan oil makes the skin elastic and counteracts stretch marks and aging, to use it in the most effective way it must be applied with massages. In fact, only in this way will it be possible to make the skin, both face and body, healthy and strong.
Pour a few drops of oil into the palm of your hand and rub them, then start massaging the part you want to treat with the oil. In addition, it is also very effective for strengthening the nails and softening the skin of the hands: just apply a compress of lemon and Argan oil and you will see results in a short time.
It must also be remembered that if the Argan oil is pure, given the quality and naturalness of the product, it is not necessary to use any preservative, but to store it in a cool and dry place, perhaps in a dark glass jar.
The uses of Argan oil for hair
In addition to being used as a natural remedy for stretch marks and to protect the skin, Argan oil can also be used on the hair. It has the great advantage of making them less frizzy, more silky and shiny, counteracting dryness. Just apply a few drops of oil after shampooing and spread it all over your still wet hair.
This oil is also an excellent remedy for preventing and treating split ends . It is also advisable to make a compress a week with this oil to stop the appearance of dandruff and dermatitis of the scalp. In summer it can also be used as a hair conditioner.
