When it comes to our face, we can all admit we choose better and more expensive products to use. After all, it’s what people look at the most. There are so many options out there that companies throw at us with many promises for better, younger looking skin. I used to think that more expensive products would provide more visible benefits since they need to justify and make up for a high price tag. Now, I not only use a much cheaper product in price but also it’s made of only one ingredient – pure organic argan oil (here). A price tag of around $ 15 dollars a bottle, it truly can be called a miracle cure for your skin.
So what is Argan Oil? The Incredible Benefits of Argan Oil
First of all, argan oil (find it here) is a wonderful example of a natural skin care product that truly works. Researchers claim that using Argan oil is beneficial for treating wrinkles, aging, acne, dry skin, hair treatment, dry scalp, hair growth, stretch marks, cracked feet and psoriasis. It was discovered a long time ago in Morocco by French and English tourists, however, for being pretty new to America, the oil has already established its credibility and is highly sought after. The Argan tree grows in Souss valley south east of Agadir and north east Essouira in Morocco. The argan tree lives longer than the olive and requires no cultivation. Traditionally, Moroccan women extract Argan oil by collecting the seeds and then pressing them. In order to obtain 1 liter of Argan oil, it takes about 12 – 20 hours of work by hand.
Argan Oil protects you from premature aging
For centuries Moroccan women have used Argan oil to nourish their skin, hair and nails. It’s no surprise that it is being called “liquid gold”. It is high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids which are beneficial in protecting against premature aging caused by oxidation. Multiple researchers have been pointing to the antioxidant properties of argan oil. I’ve been using it for a year, and I not only see the difference in my skin, but also people around me have noticed my healthy glow!
