Are you tired of purchasing endless products with the hope that they might bring your silky hair and youthful skin back? After reading this article, you will realize what you have been missing out on for so many years.

Do you ever wonder if there could be just one potion for all your problems? If yes, argan oil is the one. It is also known as liquid gold by many because of its infinite benefits and golden color. It is used as an organic cosmetic product by famous makeup artists around the world.

Here are the few of many benefits of argan oil for hair and skin:

  1. Friendly to All Skin Types

You do not have to worry about your skin type while buying or using argan oil. It benefits the dry skin by reducing dryness and itching, and keeps it hydrated at all times.

Argan oil is non-greasy, yet moisturizing enough to keep skin hydrated. Therefore, it is also best for those with oily skin. As it is an organic product, it has zero side effects, making it equally best for sensitive skin too.

  1. Treats and Prevents Acne

Excessive oil is the major cause of acne. Argan oil controls the natural production of oil.  Argan oil is high in linoleic acid content that helps to condense inflammation and remove the dead skin cells.

  1. Prevents Aging

Argan oil consists of anti-oxidants that prevent oxidative damage from pollution and UV rays. Fatty acids present in the oil such as linoleic acid help to improve firmness and elasticity of the skin.

 Argan Oil - Hands

  1. Treats Nails, Hands and Feet

Argan oil has clear softening properties which benefit wrinkled and hard skin on hands and feet. It also heals brittle and infected nails. You can make it a permanent part of your mani-pedi routine.

  1. Prevents Flaky and Dry Lips

Argan oil also works as a fantastic balm for sore and cracked lips, especially during winters.  You can also make a lip exfoliator using argan oil and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Apply it before going to sleep every night. This quick remedy will keep your lips soft and supple.

Argan Oil in Bottles

  1. Treats Dry and Damaged Hair

Argan oil also works best as a hair softener and shiner. It is used by many hair stylists as a styling agent and hair shiner. Although it is mainly used as a shiner, it treats the frizz and split ends as well. Applying a few drops through your fingertips in the roots of your hair can help your hair grow stronger and more voluminous.

  1. Speeds Up Healing of Wounds and Burns

Argan oil consists of anti-oxidants that reduce inflammation and help heal wounds, dry patches and burns. It speeds up the healing process and immediately soothes the pain.

Simultaneously, they also held a contest where six lucky decoders could win one of the six packages.  I entered the contest and guess what?  I won!  I was able to choose my package and I chose influencer and blogger Something Navy’s Arielle Charnas‘ Gift Guide Prize Package!  I follow her blog closely and I love her contributions to the fashion and style industry.  Plus, I thought that her Gift Guide was awesome!
