Why you need argan oil in your life
I can remember the first time I used argan oil in my hair. It was about seven years ago. After hearing my friends rave about how the Moroccanoil Treatment oil made their locks softer and shinier, I gave it a go – and I was hooked!
But as the years went by, I added more and more oils to my beauty routine. From tanning oils to facial and body oils, my bathroom shelves are overflowing with the greasy stuff. But the one that’s never left is argan oil, and here’s why…
IT’LL MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW
Show me someone who doesn’t want dewy, glowy, plump skin and I’ll show you a liar. Thanks to its high concentration of essential fatty acids, argan facial oil gives the complexion a boost of nourishment, leaving it shining in all the right places.
IT’LL PREVENT STRETCH MARKS
Apparently, Moroccan women have been smothering their pregnant bellies in argan oil for generations to prevent stretch marks. So, if you’re with child, invest in an argan oil lotion ASAP. But don’t stop at your tummy – smooth it over your whole bod to keep your skin seriously hydrated.
IT’LL SOOTHE SUNBURN
If you bared your bod to the sun’s harsh rays for a little too long, give yourself a swift slap on the wrist – and then slather your skin in argan body oil. It contains anti-inflammatory linoleic acid and soothing vitamin E to give sunburnt skin the hydration and TLC it needs.
IT’LL NOURISH YOUR NAILS
Rich in oleic acid, argan oil is a truly nourishing treat for dry nails and cuticles. Grab a hand cream that contains argan oil to give your mitts a dose of hydration on the go. Also, try swapping your regular cuticle oil for an argan body or face oil for stronger, healthier nails. As a bonus, it can even help them to grow quicker – win!
IT’LL CONDITION YOUR MANE
Give dry, brittle, frizzy hair a hit of argan oil and be rewarded with silky, shiny hair. Switch your regular shampoo and conditioner for one that contains argan oil, and follow by spritzing towel-dried locks with a leave-in treatment. Blow dry, and say hello to healthy-looking strands!
Do you use argan oil? If not, will you be adding it to your beauty routine again?
