Pure argan oil flatlay

 

If you have excess oil on your face, the idea of covering your skin in a greasy liquid might seem wrong. But here’s the thing: not all oils are created equal. One of the very best oils you can use on your skin – even if it tends to be oily - is argan oil.

 

Liquid gold for your skin

In the beauty world, argan oil is often referred to as “liquid gold”. The nickname stems from its amber colour, and for the many ways argan oil benefits your skin. This powerful product is extracted from the nut of fruits from the argan tree, exclusively found in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in the southwestern region of Morocco. Argan trees have been around for millions of years. Today, they grow only on a narrow strip of semi-desert between Morocco’s Atlantic coast and the Atlas Mountains. Moroccan women are renowned for their beautiful hair and skin.

What’s their secret? Well, they have been using argan oil for thousands of years and applying it regularly to their face, nails, and hair.

 

How argan oil benefits your skin

1. Moisturises skin:

Argan oil is commonly used as a moisturiser. It has an abundance of vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant that can help improve water retention. So next time your skin is feeling dry and flaky turn to your skin’s best friend - Dawn Vitamin E & Argan Oil Repairing Body Lotion.

2. Protects from Sun Damage:

Moroccan women used argan oil to protect their skin from sun damage. A study found that the antioxidant activity in argan oil helped protect the skin against free radical damage caused by the sun. As a result, this prevented burns and hyperpigmentation.

3. Anti-Ageing Effects:

Who wouldn’t like to look a little younger? Argan oil has long been used as an anti-ageing treatment. Researchers found that cosmetic argan oil led to a significant increase in elasticity of the skin, thus provided an effective anti-ageing treatment.

4. Heals skin conditions:

Argan oil contains several healing properties, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Both help reduce symptoms of inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and rosacea.

5. Reduces oiliness

Some of us have skins that are naturally oilier than others. Those who do, often go out of their way to get rid of the oily sheen that can occur. Argan oil’s sebum-reducing capabilities can help decrease sebum and reduce oiliness of the skin.

Stretch marks

What are they and why do we get them?

Stretch marks are parallel lines on your skin which have a different colour and texture than your normal skin, ranging from purple to pink, to grey. When you touch stretch marks with your fingers, you might feel a slight ridge or indentation on your skin. Stretch marks can sometimes feel itchy or sore.

They often appear during, or after pregnancy, or after a sudden change in weight. They also occur in adolescents who are growing rapidly. Stretch marks aren’t dangerous, and they often fade over time. You can get stretch marks just about anywhere, but they are most common on your stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks.

Stretch marks are common in certain circumstances. The following factors put you at risk for developing stretch marks:

● Having a family history of stretch marks
● Being pregnant
● Having a history of delivering large babies or twins
● Being overweight
● Having dramatic weight loss or gain

Three of the most helpful things you can do to prevent stretch marks, is to maintain a healthy weight, stay hydrated, and treat them as soon as they appear.

 

Argan oil to the rescue!

Argan oil is rich in vitamin E, sterols, and omega fatty acids: nutrients that can help prevent the formation of stretch marks and even reduce their appearance. Applying argan oil improves the skin’s elasticity and promotes skin healing. Argan oil is the best oil for preventing or minimising stretch marks during pregnancy. As an organic, non-toxic oil, it is perfectly safe for use by pregnant women. So go ahead and apply Dawn Vitamin E & Argan Oil Repairing Body Lotion, as a daily lotion for stretch marks, to your pregnant tummy.
