Argan oil with its powerful combination is famous for hair and skincare.. Let’s discuss some of the renowned skin benefits of applying pure Argan oil on your skin.
Argan oil is extracted from fresh fruit kernels of the Argan tree. Pure Argan oil is easily available in the market. You can also get it in combination with other facial oils. Let’s have a look at its skin benefits:
- Moisturizes the skin:
Argan oil is fantastic for moisturizing your skin. That’s why it is often found in lotions and soaps. Its moisturizing benefits are attributed to its high vitamin E content.
- Treats inflammatory conditions:
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, Argan oil helps ease the discomfort of inflammatory conditions like rosacea, atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis. Applying pure oil is enough to calm these conditions.
- Anti-sebum effects:
It helps regulate the sebum, giving you soft and hydrated skin with lesser breakouts.
- Antibacterial and antifungal properties:
These properties of Argan oil help to protect against skin infections.
It also has anti-aging properties.
Argan oil is well tolerated by most people. But as it is derived from nuts, it can cause nut allergy. So it is better to do a patch test on your wrist.
