Argan oil is obtained from the kernels of the argan tree that is native to Morocco. It is normally available as pure oil but can also be mixed with other oils for better and more effective results.
Argan oil has traditionally been used both topically and orally to improve skin, hair, and nails health. It contains several different beneficial properties and vitamins that form a powerful combination to boost skin health.
Treats several skin diseases:
Because of the presence of certain vitamins, it offers several healing properties such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory. Both helps to reduce symptoms of several different inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and rosacea.
Moisturizes all skin types:
It is one of the best-known and most effective moisturizers for all skin types. This is the reason why it is used as a basic ingredient in many well-known moisturizers.
As it has anti-inflammatory properties and little antibacterial properties, it can treat acne as well.
Slows the process of aging:
Argan oil has long been used as an anti-aging treatment. Researchers found that a combination of oral and cosmetic argan oil led to a significant increase in the elasticity of the skin. This provided effective anti-aging treatment.
You can get these benefits by applying argan oil directly to the skin or by taking the oral supplement regularly.
