Argan Oil: A Perfect Product for Great Skin & Hair
Iâ€™ve been hooked on argan oil for my hair for months. If you read my blogs, youâ€™ll recall that back in May I went from platinum hair back to my natural brunetteâ€”and brown hair needs to be properly moisturized to look great. In stepped argan oil.
I have extremely fine hair and this oil actually gives my hair volume as opposed to weighing it downâ€”with all the other benefits of oils. So, just recently and out of desperation, I decided to try this â€śliquid goldâ€ť on another thing near and dear to meâ€”my skin.
Yes, Iâ€™m in my thirties and, yes, I still have trouble with hormonally-driven acne. (Itâ€™s wonderful.) Lately, the anti-wrinkle, anti-acne benefits of argan oil for skin have seemed to be everywhereâ€”and I am, after all, completely hooked on it for my hairâ€”so why not give it a go?
Let me tell you, this blog might sound like a paid commercial (I wish), but honestly after just one day of use my skin has looked better than after weeks of trying other, harsher products. Iâ€™m now officially hooked on argan oil as an all-purposeâ€”and all-naturalâ€”beauty
treatment. So do you have to spend a fortune to try it out? Thankfully, no.
Iâ€™m still in love with my originalâ€”and affordableâ€”hair product, Kitoko oil, that I get from my stylist. (It smells fantastic.) For my skin, I likewise had no desire to spend $50 for the coveted Josie Maran brand. Instead, I went to my local Earth Fare and bought the less than $15 Aura Caciaâ€”which is organic
by the way. Itâ€™s fabulous, and I donâ€™t feel the need to try a more expensive brand; but if that floats your boat you can get the Josie Maran oil at Sephora.
While this might all sound like an infomercial, the only reason for this particular blog of mine is to help other adult acne sufferers who donâ€™t want to put nasty, drying chemicals on their skin (because we now, unfortunately, do have to think about aging and wrinkles). The special thing about argan oil is that it doesnâ€™t, quite shockingly, leave an oily appearance after it driesâ€”and it dries quickly. In fact, I didnâ€™t even need to use the oil blotting tissues that I normally do throughout the day. Liquid gold indeed.
I, for one, have been done with sunning and other harmful ways to â€śbeautifyâ€ť my skin for a little while now. I also eat wellâ€”whole
, unprocessed foods and lots of fruits and vegetablesâ€”so I canâ€™t tell you how relieved I am to have found that a simple product like argan oil actually works. Believe the hypeâ€”or at least this girlâ€™s testimonialâ€”and give it a try. Good luck! I hope that you find naturally healthy, beautiful skin and hair at the end of your rainbow.
