We list out 10 uses of organic Argan Oil in your daily life.
- Brightening & rejuvenating face mask
To your store-bought mask add a few drops of argan oil as a special ingredient. You can also make your own face mask by mixing yogurt (3 tablespoon), lemon juice (1 tablespoon), honey (1 tablespoon) and argan oil (two drops). Leave it on for 15 minutes on dry face and rinse off with warm water.
- Hydrating toner
To tone and hydrate at the same time add a few drops of argan oil to any facial toner of your choice. By adding a few drops of argan oil to Rose Water you can make your own toner.
- Face moisturizer
Massage a few drops of pure argan oil on your neck and face, after cleansing morning and/or night. It absorbs quickly as it is dry oil, and is not greasy. You can apply the oil after putting your night cream if you want to use it as a serum.
- Moisturizer & lip scrub
For a healing moisturizer for your lips, mix together organic raw brown sugar, vanilla extract and add a few drops of argan oil. Using circular motion, lightly massage into lips and rinse off.
- Leave-on conditioner
Add a few drops of argan oil to your hair while your hair is still wet after the shower. It will hydrate, condition and moisturise the scalp. If your hair is dry from daily use of straight-iron, blow-dryer or curling iron use argan oil daily for nourishing.
- Shiny hair
Before styling your dry hair, apply a few drops of argan oil on your hair and then use the styling product. It will tame frizzy hair and add a healthy shine.
- Face glow
For a shining, dewy glow add argan oil to your moisturiser, foundation, or bronzer.
- Body and bath oil
Argan oil (a few drops) can be added straight into your body or bath lotion. It helps to reduce stretch marks on a pregnant belly and is even safe to use on a baby too.
- Heel & cuticle softener
To moisturize, soften, and encourage nail growth, massage your cuticles with a few drops of argan oil before you go to sleep. Cover with socks. It will nourish cracked heels, and your feet will be soft and supple.
- Overnight hair treatment
Rub a liberal amount of argan oil into your hair, scalp and ends. Give a good massage and leave it on while you sleep after wrapping your hair with a shower cap or soft towel. Wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner and see how soft your locks are.
