Recently, oils have been given new life in the skincare industry. Instead of running away from them, we're incorporating them into our skincare regimes. Different oils do different things and offer different benefits, but some stand above others.

Known as the "liquid gold" of oils, argan oil has many pros ranging from moisturizer to anti-aging ingredient. Native to the argan tree in Morocco, its nutrient benefits include vitamin E and fatty acids.

With so many benefits, it's no wonder we're including it in the list of oils to use in your skincare!

What are the benefits of argan oil?

Natural moisturizer

With so many fatty acids, it's no wonder that this oil is one of the best ingredients to arm yourself with if you suffer from dry or flaky skin—especially in the winter months.

No worries about greasiness with argan oil. It absorbs quickly and easily into the skin, boosting your skin's natural barrier, and is non-irritating!

Acne Solutions

Using oil to help clear acne? We're here to tell you 'Yes!'

Being that argan oil isn't greasy, it actually works to balance the skin with its natural moisturizing properties, helping to soothe irritated skin and promote healing. Besides its moisture-giving qualities, it also boasts antioxidant properties which help heal damaged skin cells and reduce inflammation.


We're going to guess many of you were curious about this one. With its antioxidant and moisturizing properties, argan oil helps skin's elasticity and overall youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles and fine lines!

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks...we know they're going to happen one way or another. That doesn't mean they have to stay! Because of its high vitamin E content, argan oil is fantastic for healing those unsightly scars. Working to increase the elasticity of the skin, argan oil slowly—but surely—helps fade the appears of stretch marks and other scars you may have.

These are, of course, only a few of the many benefits that argan oil offers to the skin. Don't be afraid to branch out and try new ways to improve and keep up the health of your complexion. There are so many ways to do it! Why not try something new and add argan oil to your list?
