The Benefits of Argan Oil for Your Skin
There are seven reasons why you should load up on argan oil this winter. We talked about the benefits of many oils before, and how great they are for your skin. Let's face it, mostly all natural oils are good for your skin, however, since this is a change of seasons, I thought I would introduce you to another natural oil that is absolutely necessary for your winter skincare regiment; argan oil. The benefits of argan oil are endless for your health, hair , etc... but for the purpose of this article, we'll talk about the benefits of argan oil for your skin.
1. Luscious lips are possible in the winter
You know how we go through a chapped lips phase during the winter? Not sexy! However, you could ensure that your lips are looking pink, plump and soft with argan oil. Just dab a drop or two on to your lips and rub them together.
2. Flaky skin no more
A great benefit of argan oil, is that you can actually avoid dry flaky skin during the winter while using it. Argan oil, is loaded with softening properties. Massage some argan oil onto your legs and arms, even your nails and cuticles every night before you sleep, and watch it take effect.
3. Sexy mamas, say goodbye to stretch marks
While there may be no cure for stretch marks, there is definitely a way to prevent them. Argan oil is loaded with Vitamin E, which actually helps with skin elasticity. So massage a few drops onto your stomach, and it will reduce your chances of stretch marks. Hey it is worth a try!
4. Painful toes no more
In the winter we hide our feet in boots and shoes, which means our toes are subjected to a whole lot of friction that can lead to blisters, or pain when wearing your shoes. Here lies another benefit of argan oil. Just add a few drops of argan oil to your toes, it will soften up your feet and the cuticles surrounding your toes, making them a cushioning surface, rather than a frictional one.
5. Wrinkles undercover
Wrinkles come with age, and we believe in aging gracefully, because that is how a lady does it. Argan oil is a great way to give your skin a healthy glow and youthful look, which in turn, will make your wrinkles not seem visible. Also as stated above, argan oil contains Vitamin E, which restores elasticity to the skin. Rub some argan oil to your face and neck before you sleep, it will also keep your skin super soft.
6. In shower moisturizing
There is nothing worse than trying to wear a pair of jeans after applying lotion to your skin. Argan oil is not only a great way to keep your whole body soft, but can also be applied when in the shower. Slather it over your body before finishing up your shower, leave it for a few minutes, then rinse off. Same effect as lotion, just less sticky.
7. Save your cracked heel
While you are less likely to go in for pedicures in the winter, argan oil is a great way to take care of your heels with all the boot wearing. Massage some argan oil onto your feet before you sleep, then wear some socks. They will make your feet and toes feel super soft and clear up any dry skin.
