Argan Oil. It’s fantastic. If you aren’t using this by now, you should be.
What’s Argan Oil, you say?
I happened upon this little gem a while back when looking for a way to tame the frizzful mess that I often call my hair. Other than being immensely hydrating and very rejuvenating for dry or damaged locks, it’s also fantastic for just about anything you can think of. Nighttime moisturizer? Check. Skin toning and exfoliating? Easy peasy with a few simple ingredients. Keeping up your healthy hands and nails? You bet. I usually apply a pea sized amount to my face every morning right on top of my daily moisturizer. It’s silky and soothing as heck, and really helps to tone under and around your eyes. If you’re worried about feeling greasy, fret not – this stuff soaks into your skin and dries evenly.
So what’s the deal with this? Well let’s start with: organic and cold pressed. That’s right, nothing but the good stuff. I use Pura D’or currently, and it’s imported straight from Morocco. Best stuff money can buy, and downright affordable if you grab it up online! How long will it last you? Until the end of time. Alright, well maybe not that long… but a good while to be sure. I’ve had mine for months, using daily, and have barely put a dent in the thing. The key here is, a little goes a long way.
The best way to use it, in my humble opinion, is as a leave in conditioner. You can squirt a small amount into your hands and then work it into damp or dry hair. Aside from giving you a natural, healthy shine, it also works great at protecting your hair from heat damage brought on by blow drying, straightening, and other styling methods. If chapped lips are an issue for you, a small dab of this in the winter keeps lips nourished and happy; not to mention helps color absorb easier. Apply as an all over moisturizer or to help reduce scars and other marks. However you use it, do so to your heart’s content.
Trust me. Your body will thank you.
