When your skin cells age, they lose elasticity and give a flexible appearance. They are most common in the regions of the body where you have more skin. This can be very uncomfortable to bear as the skin becomes so flexible. You immediately need to fix it to avert further problems. Normally a soft massage with essential oil is considered effective in the management of this issue.
As already been discussed, argan oil offers great benefits and its naturally occurring ingredients are a source of comfort for many skin-related issues.
According to a study conducted in 2016, argan oil is very effective in increasing the elasticity of your skin cells which will ultimately make it good anti-aging therapy. This effect of argan oil can be achieved both by ingesting it orally or applying it topically.
How to ingest it orally?
For some people, it might be difficult to swallow it but you can take it by mixing it in any fresh juice, milk or used as salad dressing
How to apply it topically?
Take a few drops of argan oil, or as required, on a spoon and heat it gently over the flame for a few seconds. Now apply the oil over the area where you want to remove the stretch marks. And massage gently. Make this a part of your bedtime routine.
