Beauty Benefits of argan oil for skin and Hair

Beauty Benefits of argan oil for skin and Hair



Argan oil for skin

Moisturising:

After your cleansing routine, apply a few drops evenly on your face and neck. Argan oil is non-greasy and soaks in without leaving you feeling sticky or slippery.
But if you are unsure of using oil as a moisturiser, ensure you are using a moisturising cream, as it is an essential beauty product to maintain healthy skin. Olay Total Effects Day cream is a dream product that also fights signs of ageing.



Rejuvenating face mask:

To your existing home-made or store-bought mask, add a few drops. Alternatively, you could make a mask at home by mixing 3 drops of argan oil with 3 teaspoons Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. You’ll see a natural glow like never before.


Body lotion:

After you’ve washed off the soap, apply a few drops over your wet skin and rinse off. Pat your skin dry.



Exfoliation:

Swap your readymade scrub for this homemade one with argan oil and apart from savings, you’ll get the added advantage of anti-ageing. In your palm, rub a tablespoon of brown sugar with a few drops of argan oil and scrub your face in a circular motion for 2-4 minutes. Rinse and pat dry. This also doubles up as a lip scrub.



Pregnant women constantly cribbing about their stretch marks will find relief from stretched, sagging or post-birth skin. Argan oil is bursting with vitamin E which protects them against these unsightly marks. Rubbing a few drops on breasts, stomach, bottom and thighs during pregnancy makes the skin supple and increases elasticity.

Leave-in conditioner:

After you’ve shampooed your hair, work in a few drops on your scalp and hair ends for deep hydrating and moisturising especially for hair that’s daily damaged by pollution, constant styling and other hair products.


Frizz control & shine:

Fly-aways, frizz and split ends will meet their end. Ensure that you apply only a few drops and nothing more as excessive application could weigh your hair down and make it look ugh-oily.

Overnight treatment:

Massage generously into your hair, scalp and ends and cover your head while sleeping. Wash in the morning and find your hair softer.


Hair pack:


You can also prepare a power-packed hair mask by combining 2 tablespoons of argan oil, 1 tablespoon shea butter, 1 tablespoon melted honey and 1 egg yolk. Apply on your scalp and hair, cover with a shower cap and leave for 1 hour. Then shampoo.
