Argan Oil


Method of usage of Argan oil                             Argan oil is rich in essential nutritional components for skin and hair. It is therefore not required to use Argan oil in large quantity. A few drops of Argan oil are sufficient for applying on skin. However it is desirable to apply it thoroughly into the hair and the skin on the roots of hair. It is often used as a mixture of Argan oil, sweet Almond oil and Rose oil.

Application on Skin: In case of pure raw Argan oil only a few drops of Argan oil are required. For facial usage very gentle massage is needed because of the easily absorbable attribute of Argan oil. It can be used in place of other freshening creams or lotions at night for curing dryness of the face. On wrinkles and other scars caused by some skin disease, small volume of Argan oil once or twice a day is enough to get the desirable results. It has a soothing effect for Arthritic and Rheumatic conditions as well. It is better to use Argan oil regularly to preempt stretch marks especially during pregnancy. But it is never too late in case of Argan oil. Argan oil can be massaged gently over stretch marks, and it will restore the elasticity of the skin and engulf the stretch marks
