3 ways to pamper yourself using Argan Oil
This morning I woke up and decided I would like to share with you some of the beauty regimens I follow that will leave you, your face, body, and hair feeling well, energized and healthy.
One of my favorite go-to's is Argan Oil. This gem of a nut (found inside a fruit) and associated mainly with Morocco, has so many beneficial properties it'll make your head spin.
Some of these benefits include:
- Rich in Vitamin A & E which can reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Deep moisturizer for face, body, hair
- Healing powers ... soothes razor bumps and burns
- Can prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks
- Can help reduce inflammation caused by acne
How to use it?
For your face,
At night, apply a few drops (2 to 4) in the palm of your hand and massage gently in a circular motion, all over your face and neck. It is a nighttime moisturizer.
It is also great for around the eye area, however be sure to avoid contact with your eyes (if you do by mistake, simply rince with warm water), and be sure to apply very gently, because the skin is very sensitive and thin around the eyes, so you don't want to be too rough.
During the winter months, our skin gets extremely dry, so the argan oil can help with dry skin.
If you have chapped lips you can even apply the oil over your lips to help heal them quickly.
(It can even be used as a whole body moisturizer as well)
For your hair,
If your hair is dry or brittle, again, apply 6-10 drops of argan oil in the palm of your hands, then massage gently into your scalp and on your hair ends.
I usually do this an hour before i'm due to hop in the shower and wash my hair.
If you'd like to do a deep-conditioning you can leave the argan oil in overnight (just place sleep with a shower cap to avoid dirtying your pillow) and then rinse the following morning.
For your feet,
Same principle here. Before bed, place a few drops in the palm of your hands and massage onto your feet and ankles.
Then wear comfy socks to allow for the absorption of the oil, and keep them preferably overnight if possible (or at least for 30mins).
This natural, vitamin-filled oil, is really a great, chemical-free hair and face booster.
