Argan oil, also known as liquid gold is amazing for skincare and very simple to use. It can be used for nearly all parts of the body, making it perfect for those wanting to simplify their beauty routine. It is perfect for both men and women, of all ages and all skin types. It is 100% natural and plant-based, therefore naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, and you can be sure there are absolutely zero chemicals, preservatives, or additives. Nature knows best!
Argan oil for your face
1. Use it as a face oil
After cleansing and drying, simply apply a few drops of pure argan oil to your hands and gently massage the oil directly onto your face and neck. It is a dry oil, so it does not leave a 'greasy' look and absorbs quickly into the skin!
This oil can either be a replacement of your traditional face moisturiser, morning or night, or in addition to. Whether you apply the oil before or after moisturising depends on your skin and what works best for you. Typically for dry skin, moisturise first, then oil, yet for oily skin it is best to apply the oil first. In any case, everyone is unique and it is best to give it a go and see what works best for you.
2. Nourish your face with an argan oil enhanced mask
Apply a few drops of argan oil to your current face mask to lock in hydration and deepen the skin rejuvenation.
Or as an alternative to those who prefer not to use the oil as a daily face moisturiser: after cleansing and drying, generously massage the oil onto your face and neck and leave for at least 10 minutes (you can leave it as long as you like). Gently rinse off with warm water.
Argan oil for your body
1. Lock in moisture in the skin
Simply apply a few drops of argan oil to your hands and massage the oil evenly over the area of choice. For the whole body, you may need a few drops per major body part.
It is particularly great to use instead of a moisturiser after shaving (for both the ladies and men)!
For those needing extra skin hydration, it is best to use a moisturiser or lotion first, and then the oil on top to lock in all of that moisture.
For the best results, apply directly after a shower or bath (after drying yourself first) whilst your skin is still moist. It is best to wait a couple of minutes before dressing to ensure the oil has time to naturally absorb into the skin.
2. Hydrate your lips:
Lightly massage a drop of argan oil onto your lips as required, wiping off any excess (and use the excess as a bonus for your hands)!
3. Soften your feet:
After washing and exfoliating, apply argan oil generously to your feet, massaging into the heels, toes, and nails. It is best to do this before bed and to put on a clean pair of cotton socks straight away, to allow the oil to soak in well overnight. Repeat as needed. This is particularly great to treat cracked heels!
4. Treat your cuticles and nails:
Apply and massage a few drops of argan oil onto your (clean) hands, nails and cuticles. It is best to do this right before going to bed, and is particularly great for dry hands and peeling or cracked nails/cuticles.
5. Reduce stretch marks and scarring:
Reduce the visibility of stretch marks and scars on the skin by massaging a few drops of argan oil to the area daily. For best results, apply before bed. Perfect for pregnant or post C-section bellies!
6. Nourish in a bath:
Apply a few drops of argan oil to your bath to soften and nourish the skin as you soak. Safe to use for babies and mothers-to-be!
7. Treat your sunburn:
Massage a few drops of argan oil onto the affected area and leave it to soak overnight. The oil will heal and soothe the sore skin and repair any skin damage. Depending on the severity of the burn, a few applications may be required to see results.
8. Treat your eczema:
Massage a few drops of argan oil onto the affected area to reduce the effects of eczema. Repeat as required. It is best to apply directly after your shower/bath and before bed to let it soak in overnight.
9. Massage and relax:
Use argan oil as your go-to massage oil, naturally softening the skin and relaxing the body without that greasy feel!
